Homeopathy for Mastitis

There are thousands of great posts on what mastitis is … stacked up there at the top of any google search.  This article is to give you a very effective alternative to antibiotics or living with the pain of mastitis.  Both you and your baby will be keen to avoid the after effects of antibiotic treatment … and homeopathic remedies can give even faster relief without side effects.

If you have a fever, try not to suppress it.  A fever is a healing symptom rather than a sickness symptom and it is going to assist you in healing the infection.

Mastitis is an acute [intense] condition and if it is extreme one can safely take the chosen remedy in 200c, 1 pill hourly for up to 3 doses.
If it is milder, it’s better to take 30c 3 times over the day for 1 or 2 days.
With any homeopathic remedy, you stop AS SOON as you begin to feel better.
You may find warmed cabbage leaves a good naturopathic addition to your self-treatment.  Be sure to get medical attention [homeopath or doctor] if you don’t begin to see improvement pretty soon.

Here’s a handy chart to print out and keep with your babyhood remedy kit.

Treat Nappy diaper rash naturally.  It responds well to homeopathic treatment.

We can see how horrible it is to live with … for babies and parents.
In this post I’m going to describe some remedies so that you can help your baby.
Simply, safely & swiftly.

The very best way to give remedies to babies is in medical solution.  Drop a homeopathic pill into sterile water, stir vigorously and give the baby a few drops on the tongue.   Give 3 doses of the 30c water spaced over a day for a couple of days until you see improvement.   Stop as soon as you see improvement and start again if necessary, if the rash returns.  If you can’t get rid of it, book an acute appointment with me.

Homeopathic Remedies For Nappy / Diaper Rash

In order to treat nappy / diaper rash naturally with homeopathy, the most suitable remedy must be selected. By reading the indications of each remedy, it is possible to chose the remedy that most matches the case.

The most commonly prescribed homeopathic remedies are:

Hepar sulphuris

This is a great diaper rash remedy when the baby is generally extremely chilly and very sensitive to being uncovered. The diaper rash tends to become infected very quickly and it has a pussy look with some kind of odour. The child is sensitive to cold and touch to the affected area. He prefers warmth.


Graphites is indicated when the skin is red, dry, cracked and very itchy. There is a honey-like discharge that is initially sticky and then becomes crusty. The child has skin eruptions mostly in the folds of the skin and may suffer from eczema and skin problems in other areas of the body.


Here the skin is red, shiny and the rash is often caused by Candida. The child needing this remedy has the tendency to sleep in a knee-to-chest position. Baby can be very restless and oversensitive to pain.


Sulphur babies are generally very hot and their skin is very delicate and becomes red, hot, dry, and itchy easily, especially around the anus after a stool. The diaper rash is worse after a bath and the child dreads being washed. The child prefers cold water and does not like warm water and warmth in general. He gets worse at night, in a warm bed.


This diaper rash remedy is given in homeopathic form when there is a yeast diaper rash that is difficult to eliminate.


This diaper rash remedy works wonders when the skin looks as if it has been scalded or burned like a sun burn. The skin looks blistery red, raised, hot and painful. The child is worse from touch and cold water. Baby may also have urinary tract infection.

Rhus toxicodendron

This diaper rash remedy works well when the skin is red, dry, swollen and very itchy. You can notice tiny blisters appearing in the diaper area and they can have a clear or pussy liquid in them. They feel better by warmth applications and exposure to fresh air. The child is very restless.

Wishing you success.  If you get stuck, book an acute appointment with me.

Remedies can be sourced from Helios Homeopathy in the UK, and other homeopathic pharmacies world wide.


thrush & impetigo

Thrush & Impetigo … Holiday First Aid

Thrush (Candida) & Impetigo … Eruptions That Happen on Holiday!

Hi folks.
Today’s is a rapid case, brought to you all the way from sunny Majorca … via Facebook Messenger. 
It is a story of sun, sea, sand, sweaty swimming trunks and sweet little boys with sore little bits.

Isn’t it always the way that thrush (candida) & impetigo appear on holiday … just when you don’t need them?  Just when you want to be waist deep in the sea and neck deep in the sand?  Not sitting around itching, or hiding to air your bits and bobs & walking to the restaurant like John Wayne just off his horse!

So, naming no names … here are some remedies, knowledge & kits you should have with you …

  • the Helios Traveller’s Kit (only available by phone) … for those cases of diarrhoea, food poisoning & sunburn …

thrush & impetigo


  • the Helios 36 remedy first aid kit (available by phone) which is an essential everyday kit you NEED at home.
    thrust & impetigo

Read on for more …

When thrush (candida) & impetigo strike.

Thrush & impetigo often have quite similar eruptions, and thankfully respond to similar homeopathic remedies …

Have at hand the following:

  • Ant crud, borax, calc carb, calendula, dulcamara, graphites, medorrhinum, mercury, mezerium, sepia, sulphur. (Especially if any of you have had these before).
  • Natural yogurt can be deliciously soothing & great fun to dip your little bits in. (You girls & women can also use it as a cooling application).  It is probiotic and helps to replace the healthy bacteria which outcompete the yeast or staph bacteria causing the infection.  (Buy it there).
  • Apple Cider Vinegar is useful for washing parts [dilute or it will sting!] … which should be kept clean and airy.   It’s great if you can mix 1 tbsp with apple juice a few times a day and drink it too.  ACV is also probiotic.  (Buy it there).
  • Avoid creams, which encourage moisture retention and sweatiness.
  • Calendula & hypericum can be dropped into water and used as a bathing solution to help with healing.   This is also good for infected cuts.
  • Wash trunks, pants and swimming cozzies on hot! Most don’t allow you to wash hot, so you might want to attack the gusset with a bar of good old soap and then wash as hot as the label allows.

Have a wonderful holiday … but be prepared!
Have the number of a friendly homeopath who is happy to skype with you (I’ll volunteer … but be sure to book in with me before you go!  07544812470) … and be sure you have remedies.

Now, I’m off to pack my cozzi and kits.

Love to all

Breastfeeding: Latching – Explained.


Coming up IN THIS ARTICLE:  

  • Incentives to persist with breastfeeding. 
  • Building a breastfeeding partnership with your baby.
  • The influence of medicated births.
  • Resolving latching issues. 
  • Natural breastfeeding presentation.

(Bookmark  HOMEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR LACTATION  … Coming up next.) 



Video results from a study observing independent breast crawl and latching of newborn babies in medicated and unmedicated births.

Medicated birth may account for a great proportion of early latching problems that mothers experience with their babies.
The study published recommendations for (wherever possible) births to be unmedicated, and babies left with mothers, undisturbed until they had breastfed successfully.

Not long ago, scientists believed that most newborn reflexes were useless leftovers from our tree-dwelling ancestors. But now we know better. We know these reflexes are key to early breastfeeding.

Every brand-new baby comes into the world with a whole repertoire of responses that are custom designed by Mother Nature to make baby an active breastfeeding partner. Baby is born with what’s needed so that–when conditions are right–breastfeeding and bonding happen easily and naturally. These responses work best when baby lies tummy down on mother with gravity anchoring baby there.  link


A logical extension of breast-crawling is developing a breastfeeding partnership from the ‘natural’, tummy down position at later stages of development.

When they gave birth, mothers in the past were familiar with how to nurse their babies because they saw it growing up. link

Most new mothers have never seen someone breastfeeding.  Most have only seen representations of a bottle feeding posture & that is also what is taught traditionally to new mothers by midwives and hospitals.  This is a position in which the baby cannot help himself.

One of the biggest barriers to a smooth breastfeeding start is that most pregnant women have an image in their minds of what they think breastfeeding is like that is fatally flawed. link


Researchers Lennart Righard & Margaret Alade, in the video at top, (published in The Lancet, 1990), suggest that babies can do this independently until they lose the crawl reflex (around 12 weeks).  Beyond that they have more volitional control of their bodies.

In Natural Breastfeeding positions gravity helps babies latch deeper, so mothers can breastfeed in greater ease and comfort right from birth. link
