Homeopathic Treatment for Mastitis

Mastitis is the inflammation of the breast tissue. Mastitis can arise in any woman but is most common in breastfeeding women. In lactating females, mastitis develops because of the blockage of milk ducts and milk stasis due to incomplete emptying of milk. Risk factors for milk stasis include blockage of milk ducts from pressure such as tight fitting clothing, using one breast for feeding child, and using the same position to feed the child. These result in improper drainage of milk from the breast. Other causes of mastitis is the transfer of infection to milk ducts from damaged or cracked nipples and direct trauma to the breast. The main advantage of using homeopathic treatment for mastitis is that these medicines are free from side effects. Hence, they are very safe to use for the mother as well as the baby.

Homeopathy is highly successful in treating many health conditions in women, Mastitis being one of them. Homeopathic treatment for mastitis helps decrease the inflammation, swelling, pain, tenderness, heat in breast and other accompanying symptoms. Homeopathic medicines that are most beneficial for treating mastitis are Belladonna, Phytolacca, Croton Tig, Bryonia, Silicea and Hepar Sulph.

Signs and Symptoms of Mastitis

The signs and symptoms of mastitis include swelling, tenderness or pain in the breast, burning sensation and heat in breast, skin redness, fever or general malaise. Accompanying symptoms may include chills, shivering, body aches and fatigue. The mastitis not treated well in time may lead to a mammary abscess or pus collection.

Top Homeopathic Medicines for Mastitis

1. Belladonna – A Wonderful Homeopathic Medicine Used in the Initial Phase of Mastitis

Belladonna is a very useful homeopathic medicine for mastitis. Belladonna works well in the initial stage of inflammation of the breast. The breast is red and very swollen. Throbbing pains accompany the swelling. The pain is worse when lying down. Inflammation of breast after weaning is another strong indication to use Belladonna.

2. Phytolacca – A Top Grade Homeopathic Medicine for Mastitis with Stinging and Shooting Pain

Phytolacca is a top grade homeopathic medicine for mastitis. Phytolacca works well for swollen, painful breast with marked soreness. There is a stinging and shooting pain in the breast. Extreme sensitivity and tenderness of the breast are also symptoms. Hardness and a purple hue may also accompany. Nipples may also be cracked. Pain from the breast also radiates to the whole body while nursing the child.

3. Croton Tig – Another Useful Homeopathic Medicine for Mastitis

Croton Tig is yet another effective homeopathic medicine for mastitis. Symptoms indicative of using Croton Tig are a hard, swollen and inflamed breast. Another major indication for using Croton Tig is that the pain from the breast radiates to the back on nursing the child. The pain is mainly drawing in nature. Soreness of the nipples is also present.

4. Bryonia – Homeopathic Medicine for Mastitis with Stony Hard Breast

Bryonia is an excellent homeopathic treatment for mastitis. Its use is considered in cases of mastitis when the breasts are stony hard. The breasts are also hot, swollen and highly painful. The slightest motion worsens the pain in the breast, and the patient may need to support the breast with the hand. Resting seems to relieve the pain.

5. Silicea and Hepar Sulph – Homeopathic Medicines for Mastitis When an Abscess is Formed

Silicea and Hepar Sulph are great homeopathic medicines for mastitis when an abscess gets formed. These medicines are very effective when treating suppurative conditions. They help in the drainage of pus without any surgical intervention. These medicines work well in cases of an abscess with pus discharge that may be offensive in nature, intense pain, sensitivity to touch, and chills.

    Respected Sir,

    My wife aged 34yrs observed tenderness in both breasts. After taking allopathic treatment only for pain management then we headed towards a homeopath. He prescribed Calcarea Carb 30 and some other medicines given by himself. Got some relief but after one month we went for Ultrasonography of Breasts. Everything was normal in left breast and in right breast the sonologist observed Mastitis in Inferio Medial part with evolving abscesses???Advised FNAC correlation.

    But our homeopath suggested us not to go for FNAC right then He told us to just wait. He prescribed Conium Mataculatam 30 with other medicines like Phytolacca, Mercuritis, Silicea, Bellis , Begonia, Belladonna etc one by one. After treatment of two months, the pain is mild only on touching, occasionally she feels the pain but something like lumpy tissue is still there. The treatment continues.

    Kindly suggest whether the treatment is OK. Is this condition treatable in homeopathy and in what time span???

    Thanking you in anticipation.

    Regards

    Dr. Dharma,
    I delivered a healthy baby girl on Feb 20th 2018
    by C-Section. I am on 60 mg of Armour thyroid.
    I am having a very difficult time producing enough milk for my baby even with regular pumping. The doctors have suggested supplementing with formula but I prefer to breast feed as many of the formulas are cows milk and soy milk based. Do you have any homeopathic recommendations to increase milk production?
    Thank you. New Mom

  5. This is helpful, but what is the dosage and how often can you take Phytolacca Decandra?
    I read you should take 30c? or 6c? Some places it says once a day some places say take the 3 pellets every 15 minutes?
