Constipation, hemorrhoids and varicose veins during pregnancy can be helped with homeopathy. Chronic constipation, hemorrhoids and varicose veins (starting before pregnancy or lasting well beyond pregnancy) should be treated by a classical homeopath. These are the most common homeopathic remedies that are useful for these conditions:
Sepia: The first remedy to try for women who have never had constipation before pregnancy. The constipation was brought on by hormonal changes (pregnancy). She may feel drained, worn-out, and may experience a bearing down feeling in the rectum.
Lycopodium: Another common constipation remedy for women with sluggish liver function. She craves sweets and has yellowish or whitish stools. These women also have heartburn, belching, bloating and flatulence.
Pulsatilla: Symptoms are changeable with these women. She may be constipated or have hemorrhoids one day and be fine the next. She may have varicose veins of the feet and groin. She is susceptible to mood swings and is aggravated by heat.
Nux Vomica: This remedy is usually for sedentary women who have a history of heavy drug and/or coffee consumption, and consume a diet of rich, heavy foods. There is usually distention and severe flatulence. There is a constant desire to move the bowels but when she sits on the toilet, nothing happens. These women are irritable and critical.
Sulphur: Like Pulsatilla, these women are aggravated from heat. These women are usually heavy-set and flush easily. She passes foul gas and her bowel movements are offensive smelling. There is redness and a lot of itching around the anus.
Hamamelis: Hemorrhoids and varicose veins that are very sore to the touch. Hemorrhoids with copious bleeding. These women retain fluid and their ankles swell.
Take a 12C or 30C potency (strength) of the remedy a few times per day. After 3 doses of the remedy, symptoms should improve, even slightly. If there is no improvement after taking 3 doses, the wrong remedy has probably been selected.
Other remedies may be indicated for your condition. The above-listed remedies are the most common remedies for these conditions, but are not the only remedies that can help these conditions.
