How to recover from postpartum depression without the side-effects of antidepressants

 

 Natural Treatment – Homeopathy for Postpartum and Prenatal Depression is SAFE with ZERO side effects.

A new life is developing, a new life has just entered this world.

As moms we always want to protect and safeguard this new life in any way we can; making sure our precious baby has the healthiest start possible.

 

Homeopathy offers help to women who are looking for a natural and effective way of addressing postpartum depression (PPMD – postpartum mood disorders).

 

The number of women who suffer with prenatal and postpartum depression is staggering. According to recent studies, between 15-20% of postpartum women (regardless of the pregnancy’s outcome) develop postpartum mood disorders (PPMDs), including postpartum depression (PPD), postpartum anxiety/OCD and postpartum psychosis. To put this number in perspective; in the U.S. more women will suffer from postpartum depression and related illnesses each year than the combined number of new cases for men and women of tuberculosis, leukemia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and epilepsy.

 

Sadly, many women go undiagnosed and untreated due to stigma, fear, shame and guilt. What we as new mothers often hear and believe about the time during and after pregnancy is that this is suppose to the happiest times in our lives. What if you are not floating on a cloud of joy and happiness? What if what you are experiencing is sadness, confusion, disconnectedness from your baby, isolation, anger etc.? Why are we often not prepared for these thoughts and emotions? What do we do when this is our experience? Many women do not seek help, many women who do seek help are not taken seriously by their physician and continue to go untreated.


Treatment

The most common treatment method for postpartum depression is therapy, and often some type of anti depressant is prescribed. Some of the most commonly prescribed antidepressants in PPD are; Zoloft, Prozac, Lexapro, Wellbutrin and Effexor. A great number of women are reluctant to start these medications due to worry about side effects to themselves and their nursing baby. Most of the time we are told that these medications are safe to take while pregnant and nursing. I am including links to drugs.com for information on side effects associated with the antidepressant just mentioned.

The conventional medical approach to treating depression is quite opposite to the holistic approach of homeopathy. Conventional drugs are used to control and suppress symptoms while homeopathic remedies work on a deeper level to remove symptoms and restore the person back to health with no further need for medication, conventional or other. Homeopathy can effectively be used alone, or alongside conventional drugs. The use of homeopathy often help the woman already taking an anti depressant reduce, or come off their antidepressants completely. This varies in each individual case and must always be done under the supervision of your physician and homeopath.

Whether you chose conventional, homeopathy, or other method to treat the symptoms of your postpartum depression is a personal choice.Different strokes for different folks must always be respected. I would like you to know that there are natural and perfectly safe alternatives to chemical drugs available to you should you want to investigate further.


No harmful side-effects

Homeopathic treatment offers a gentle and non-invasive approach to health, producing no toxic side effects, no dependency or addiction, and no withdrawal. Homeopathy is safe for people of any age, including babies, pregnant and nursing women.

 

Homeopathy for postpartum and prenatal depression and anxiety can be very effective. It is always best to consult a professional homeopath for the correct homeopathic remedy, tailored to your specific symptoms.
