Homeopathy Can Help Tackle Weight Issues

For most women, weight gain after pregnancy is an all-too-common nightmare. The Institute of Medicine calculates that having a baby will add an average of 1kg of weight a year, after giving birth.

Yet, postpartum weight gain may not be entirely physiological. It could also be due to medical causes such as thyroid dysfunction, birth control pills, stress and so on. Recent research gives that when the body is stressed, it tends to releases hormones that can contribute to weight gain. In addition, medicines like anti depressants and anti psychotic drugs given to cope with postpartum depression or postpartum psychosis can lead to further weight gain. In addition, some weight loss programs may have debilitating side effects.

On the other hand, homeopathy offers a safe, long lasting and holistic solution. Composed of natural elements in minuscule doses, homeopathy has absolutely no side effects. In dealing with the problem, it goes to the very root of it, is gentle on the body and takes into account the emotional and psychological aspects of a patient.

There is good news for weight watchers. International research shows that some homeopathic medicines are extremely effective in reducing weight as they help to burn calories faster by speeding up the metabolic rate.

One such 100-year-old homeopathic remedy prepared from an extract of sea-kelp has been researched and accepted by UK's Medicines Control Agency. For some women who suffer from weight gain and accompanying depression, due to hypothyroidism, a homeopathic medicine - Calcarea Carb 200 plus a specific diet and scientific weight monitoring can achieve what weight loss programs fail to do.

As most people are aware of today, losing weight is no longer about looking good but being healthy. Homeopathy helps in doing so safely, surely and systematically so that the weight that comes off and stays off.

Homeopathic medicines touted to aid weight loss include Fucus Vesiculosus 6C (reduces weight by speeding up the process of burning of fat tissues) and Phytolacca mother tincture (reduces weight by increasing the metabolic rate).
