Inducing Labour With Oxytocin And Its Wider Effects

Hospital induced labour happens too often, and is more likely to lead to a c-section. It should be used in medical emergency situations. Only 4% of babies arrive on their due date. Anxiety surrounding due dates has lead to an increase in cervix “sweeps”, and planned intervention when it is not always necessary.

Saskia Praat, my favourite Dutch homeopath  has written an excellent article which I have translated for you.

EDIT 2023 : Since this article, Saskia has sadly passed away. She was a magnificent homeopath and her free trial for babies had an enormous impact on my own practise.

Personal Experience

I know too well from personal experience that this can be too much too fast. Both the birth of my daughter as well as my son were artificially induced with oxytocin, known as the ‘happy hormone.  I was very young and ignorant. If I knew then what I know now (how many times I have not said that?) I would not let a drop in me! Yet I did at the birth of my son in an attempt to keep the doctor happy! I had just four hours in labour and I wanted so badly to deliver it naturally myself. Without intervention.
It seemed to go so well. Well that’s how it felt to me. But the doctor did not agree. He just grabbed my arm and stuck in the needle. Well, it was a Saturday night, maybe he had to go to a party! What followed was a labour storm, that I no longer could hold back, and within 3 minutes I sat up and  my son was born on a drip.
Fortunately, he was healthy but later he had difficulties which I  would now be trace back to the artificial administration of oxytocin.

Oxytocin Suppression

Recently I did a ‘free trial’ for parents with crying/colicky babies. My intention was to help them within three weeks because babies usually respond rapidly to correctly chosen homeopathic remedies.
It struck me that as the mothers described the problems with their child, I noticed that more than half of them had been administered oxytocin during childbirth. Resetting the oxytocin receptors with a homeopathic remedy altered the behaviour of those children immediately!
Within a few days they changed from a crybaby into a happy, sociable child. At that moment, you know as a homeopath, that artificial oxytocin had been the culprit.

Trust In Nature

It’s a pity everything today is so fast. There is little or no confidence in the power and wisdom of nature. Medical intervention is always an option if the situation becomes a risk, that’s the beauty of our healthcare system, but we do not need to take unnecessary risks, and let’s not do it too soon and then risk unnecessary damage.

Possible symptoms caused by synthetic oxytocin:

  • Crying baby for no apparent reason
  • Breastfeeding problems
  • Restlessness and anxiety
  • Sleeping problems
  • Difficulty in making social contacts
  • Fears

Homeopathic detoxification of oxytocin

Do you recognize one or more of these symptoms in your child? Can you think of no apparent reason for these symptoms? Was your labour artificially induced with oxytocin, or did you use oxytocin nasal spray to support breastfeeding? Then homeopathic detoxing of the oxytocin is an important step towards solving this problem.

Homeopathy is the safest medicine for babies.

HPV- Gardasil and Cervarix Injury New Criteria Guidelines

If you are a Gardasil injured person looking to book in, please read this new criteria first.

As we are the most experienced homeopathic team dealing with this type of case, we have decided to only take on clients who fit the new criteria below. If you do not fit the criteria below then homeopathy can still work for you, but we are not the right therapists for you.

1. The patient has to be committed to healing themselves and understand that they are fully responsible for their health.


That the patient doesn’t rely on us and the pills to do all the work. To understand that their lifestyle choices will speed up or impair recovery and that no medicine can be a substitute for lifestyle choices that hinder recovery. At the end of the day, we are all responsible for ourselves, and the choices we make.

2. To begin working with us the patient has to have in place or commit to having a clean sleep routine.

This means going to sleep with the lights out by 10 pm the latest and being on no devices an hour beforehand. All of our patients have adrenal fatigue and thyroid issues. When you go to bed late or are on devices late, then too much light is being emitted from phones/tablets a few inches from your eyes. That amount of bright light signals the body to make more adrenaline because it thinks it’s in the afternoon and that then creates more cortisol that prevents sleep and makes you tired in the morning. Melatonin and pineal levels are messed up too. Our patients have severely imbalanced hormones, and melatonin, the pineal gland, adrenals and the thyroid all need to be in balance to recover. If your sleep cycle is out, you don’t need pills to correct it – you just need to get a clean sleep routine and your body will get into balance in a couple of days. What you do when you are recovered is up to you – but if you want to work with us, this is a non-negotiable requirement.

3. You are not on the contraceptive pill or are on steroid inhalers.

These are synthetic hormones and are a big block to curing. When someone is on these, we can’t really get started as they are contributing to the hormones being unbalanced. We can work with you if you intend to come off the pill before your prescription starts or if you intend to come off inhalers before we start detoxing. We cannot start detoxing or bring you to a full recovery unless these 2 medicines are out of the picture. We can help with period pain, and asthma anyway in the prescriptions. If you are fully reliant on these medicines then we are not the therapists for you.

4. You have a good diet and eat vegetables.

What you eat affects your health. A lot of the imbalance in the body centres in the stomach. This doesn’t mean you have stomach pains – but your microbiome is key to healing. We are looking for patients who eat some vegetables and fruits. We cannot work with patients who just eat processed food and no fruits and vegetables at all. We can work with patients who have a limited diet but are committed to eating a wider variety of healthy foods. If you don’t meet this criteria it will take too long to help you fully recover and we will only get halfway.

5. If you are on prescribed medicines it is your wish and intention to get off them.

Some patients want to stay on medication while asking us to fully heal them. All medicines come with side effects, which we can’t heal while the patient is on them, therefore we are being asked to do an impossible task. Of course, we see many patients on meds and they end up reducing their dosage and not needing them. They actively don’t want to be on them. If you are happy with any medicines and want to stay on them, then we are not the therapists for you. We are interested in working with people who want to be fully and holistically well, and only then can we work to the best of our ability.


If you fulfil this criteria then we are confident that we can heal the majority of patients in 1-3 sessions.
