34weeks pregnant Insomnia and persistent heartburn Page 8 of 16
Puls. itself is a remedy capable of setting right the low milk supply. Do you have the problem from the first day or it's very recent esp. after puls. dose? Also a sore pointer is your reporting about being snappy, impatient after this dose. Any improvement on energy or mood?
You need not do eight doses. May be one or two more but you need to dilute it further for the next and still it's not favourable, then the third dose needs to be done by sniffing.
There is a medicine called alfalfa which needs to be taken in mother tincture form for a few weeks(10-15 drops daily) to improve quantity and quality of the milk which would also increase the fat content of the milk. But would your super sensitive system would tolerate this is a question for me.
Wasn't there any improvement on other symptoms like hemorrhoids, sweating, flushes etc?

♥ maheeru 6 months agoIn hindsight, I believe low supply has been a problem from the beginning. I never noticed much breast tissue changes during pregnancy, but I attributed it to the fact that I was also nursing my toddler for the most part of the pregnancy. However there was not much colostrum at first either and I was concerned for lack of wet diapers in her first few days also.
But then again, if she isn’t able to suckle properly then there would t be enough milk taken to stimulate more to be made....
I feel a little less snappy impatient, but still more so than I was before Puls dose. I feel a bit more emotional and needy, but also wanting to be alone because people are frustrating me. I told my family no more visitors for the week.
My energy is about the same. Much better than during pregnancy. I want to get up and accomplish things, and now that the soreness is gone I am physically capable, however the babe is constantly crying for milk, and then falls asleep at the breast before getting enough to eat.
Yes I did have much improvement on soreness and hemorrhoids. The soreness is still 100% gone, and hemorrhoids are maybe 90% gone.
Night sweats improved a tiny bit for one night but are now fully back.
I’ve got the Puls solution- one pellet dissolved in 4oz of water, and my last dose I succussed that and diluted one tsp in 8oz of water and took a sip of it.
Shall I take another, twice diluted?

rom109 6 months agoGood to know about alfalfa mother tincture.
It’s also a possibility that baby is tongue tied. My son was when he was born; we had to get it clipped in order for him to nurse properly. It definitely looks like it is.
I have a lactation specialist coming over today to assess.
rom109 6 months agoYes take one more dose of puls. with some tweaks.
Reduce the succussion on 4oz bottle to one. Reduce the stir on 8 oz dilution cup to one. If you are transferring more than a drop from 4oz bottle to 8 oz bottle then cut the quantity to a drop.
Instead of a sip from 8 oz bottle just take a drop as a dose.
Let's see how this dose goes.
♥ maheeru 6 months agoOkay so my appointment went well. She confirmed I have a very low milk supply. She also told me that not having enough fat in my milk is not a thing. I simply just am not making enough for some reason. She prescribed Goats Rue it bring back milk production. I’ve taken four doses so far and I’m already noticing fuller breasts and baby is nursing for longer.
Also my daughter is severely tongue and lip tied. She referred me to a doctor who can perform a frenotomy so that she can begin to nurse properly.
I took the dose of Puls as suggested earlier today.

rom109 6 months agoComing down with a cold that my son caught. Throat is starting to burn a little and eyes feeling a little dry.
No improvement on night sweats...haven’t really noticed much change since last dose.
rom109 6 months agowhich potency are you using for Puls?
If the cold is less problematic and is on it's way out nothing to do now. Otherwise we'll have to do something.
♥ maheeru 6 months agoThe cold is just starting, today my sinuses are starting to burn a bit and I’ve got a headache that’s starting in my neck, my neck and shoulder muscles feel burny, stiff and achy.
200c Puls. That’s all I have.
rom109 6 months agoIf I was to start the Alfalfa mother tincture, ....
Is a mother tincture the same as an herbal extract/tincture? Or is it a specially prepared homeopathic medicine?
Also I’m looking and not many places have the MT available. The lowest dose I could get is 2x. Is that acceptable?
rom109 6 months agoYes MT is different to that of herbal extract. It's a base preparation following a set of rules from which further potencies will be prepared.
Yes 2x will be acceptable in place of MT ---just need to pick liquid one.
I think you were doing well with that goat's rue herb right? Any problem with that?
You may go ahead with another dose of Puls. this time drops(number of) stay the same as to that of last dose, but succussion and stirs go up from one to two.
♥ maheeru 6 months agoNo problems with the Goats Rue. I just am impatient and really eager to get her off the formula.
I will take another dose of Puls.
Btw, I’m kicking myself for this, but I think I may have discovered why this whole low milk supply issue happened in the first place. My tooth powder (what I brush my teeth with) has peppermint oil in it. ðŸ˜–
I’ve been using it just about all through the pregnancy and up until today....I am discontinuing use of it now.
rom109 6 months agoJust had the procedure done for my daughter. She’s in so much pain :’(
Would arnica be an appropriate remedy for her?
There’s no bleeding since they cauterized the site. Lots of swelling and painful for her to move her tongue and lips. She wants to nurse but it hurts too much.
I hate that we had to do this!! I know she will heal quickly and not remember, and it is for her benefit long term....but it’s so awful watching your baby be in pain.
