Morning Sickness Of Pregnant Females
Category: DISEASES OF FEMALES
Source: An Epitome Of Homeopathic Healing Art
The most efficient and certain remedy for this symptom is _Macrotin_. It
should be taken at the first attenuation, a dose before rising in the
morning, and one every six hours during the day, as long as the sickness
is troublesome. It will generally relieve in a few days. If the stomach
is sour use _Pulsatilla_ with the _Macrotin_.
As a _preparation for labor_, a dose (one grain) of _Macrotin_ at the
first attenuation given in the morning, and the same of _Caulophyllin_
at evening, is of great service.
Whatever others may think or say in relation to any preparatory
treatment for labor, I have reason to know as well as anything in
medicine be known, that patients treated as here directed, pass through
labor much quicker, frequently in one-fourth the usual time. Their
sufferings are comparatively trifling, and the length of time for
recovery to ordinary health after labor is abridged from three-fourths
to nine-tenths that of former labors. I am quite confident that the
medicines produced this difference.
For _irregularity of labor pains_, and for distressing _after pains_,
the _Caulophyllin_ is specific.
During labor it should be given at the 2d attentuation in about half
grain doses, every half hour, until the pains are regular. Two or three
doses at most, and generally one will suffice.
For the after pains it may be given in alternation with _Ipecac_ or
_Aconite_ if there is flooding, or with _Pulsatilla_ when the flooding
is not troublesome, a dose once in half an hour, until the pains are
For _Rigidity_ of the soft parts and severe, _retarded and long
protracted labor_, where the pains are strong and irregular, and great
pain and exhaustion is experienced on account of the unyielding
condition of the parts, _Lobelia Inflata_ given in drop doses of the tr.
in water, once in twenty minutes, in alternation with _Caulophyllin_ as
above directed, will in a short time produce the proper condition of the
parts, while they render the pains stronger, regular and progressive.
In urgent cases I have given the medicines every 5 or 10 minutes, with
A Useful Hint to Mothers.
Children push beans, peas, corn, &c., into the nose and ear, causing
much alarm. To remove such a body take a syringe that works tightly, put
the end of the pipe against the bean, shot, or other substance, draw
back the piston so as to _suck_ up the article firmly as the pipe is
withdrawn from the cavity.
