Matridonal Remedies and Infertility – A Homeopathic Approach


Dates/times: October 1st (9am – 5pm EDT) & October 2nd, 2022 (10am – 6pm EDT) | Cost: $150 | Lecturer: Joy Burlton


Matridonal remedies –  the remedies surrounding the sacred feminine, resonate with our ability to create and bring forth life. To nurture, to give sustenance, to provide safety, security and love, to connect and then to grow and separate – these are the dynamic potential within these remedies. They relate to the organism’s attempts to mix up just the perfect hormonal “soup” so that all of the process of creation can unfold in a magical process, one stage leading into the next in perfect sequence. However, sometimes things don’t happen so perfectly. What then? What if bonding doesn’t occur, milk won’t flow, contractions and natural progress through the processes of life don’t happen, not just in labour but in all stages of life. What can we do when oxytocin and estrogen and all of our other hormones are out of whack?

We are now in the 4th generation of women taking the contraceptive pill from a very early age; it’s in our drinking water, taking a toll, not just on our fertility, but on our overall wellbeing. Within these wonderful remedies are the tools to heal birth trauma, intergenerational trauma, mother wounds, our disconnection from our true selves, from each other and from our reason for being. These remedies have been instrumental in the healing of so many of my patient’s suffering with trauma from childhood and before.

In this class, we will cover case studies using these remedies as intercurrents and as chronic remedies. We will study materia medica, focusing on differential diagnosis between remedy look-alikes. We will get a deeper understanding of when and how to use these remedies creatively to heal deeply. We will look at indications for use before conception, during pregnancy, during lactation, and as support through the developmental stages of childhood and, finally, for adults needing to heal from any of these emotional stages, leading up where they are currently stuck.

Remedies that will be discussed: lac humanum/lac maternum, follculinum/oopherinum, placenta, vernix caseosa, amniota, umbilicus, oxytocin/pitocin.
We will also hold an optional mini proving of a substance related to the matridonal remedies listed here.

Fertility: Studies indicate that the level of stress for a woman experiencing infertility is similar to the levels of stress for someone going through cancer treatment. For many, it is the first time in their life where their planning and going through the steps to achieve something have not worked, and no matter what they try, they are left bereft, month after month. It can be devastating. Maybe their hormones are out of balance, maybe their ovarian reserves are low, maybe they spent a long time on birth control, maybe they never fully recovered from an abortion they had prior to trying to conceive. There are so many difficult, loaded subterranean issues that may need to be addressed in cases where fertility has become an issue.

Continuing on from our lecture on Matridonal remedies this lecture on fertility will take a deep look at some of the biological, biochemical, and emotional reasons that women may be experiencing problems with fertility, and then of course, how to help them. We will focus primarily on the female side of fertility issues but may touch on male infertility if time allows. Don’t know the first thing about FSH and TSH? Don’t worry, this class is accessible for beginners as well as giving helpful experiential tips for homeopaths who find these types of cases challenging. We will cover common mental states and remedies to help heal with the immediate trauma of infertility, balancing remedies to help the body recover hormonal functionality, and the deeper levels of constitutional prescribing to heal the real reason that fertility has been impacted.

Bring your questions and curiosity, your triumphs and failures and we will delve into the deep healing that each of these remedies offer to us individually and to all of humanity.

It’s the weekend of THE WOMAN! Join us to learn some of the deeper issues that lie behind the mysteries of our ability to perform the miracles of pregnancy, birth, and the ongoing complexities of nurturing in this complex world we live in.



This is going to be two FULL days of class, accessible over ZOOM.

Details: October 1 and 2, 2022 from 9am – 5pm and 10am – 6pm EDT (6am – 2pm & 7am – 3pm PST)

Cost: $80 for either class, $150 for the weekend (recordings will be available if you are not able to make it live)
