AN UNUSUAL EXPRESSION OF THE MILK EJECTION REFLEX NORMALISED BY KALI CARBONICUM

10th AHA National Homoeopathic Medicine Conference 'Homœopathy - Strange, Rare & Peculiar' 22-23 October 2016 Brisbane

An unusual expression of the milk ejection reflex normalised by Kali Carbonicum 

During lactation, oxytocin governs what is known as the letdown or milk ejection reflex. This neuro-hormonal reflex is primarily elicited through suckling when the hormone is released from the pituitary and enters the bloodstream to be carried to the breast's network of oxytocin receptors, which are found in the basement membrane of the myoepithelial cells which surround each alveolus. These oxytocin receptors cause the alveoli to contract, thereby releasing the milk into the ductal system from where it is easily removed by suckling.

During the letdown most mothers report a sense of turgescence or tingling in the breast, which may be pleasurable or painful; so, a letdown associated with eliciting the gag reflex relieved by vomiting is a most unusual and exaggerated response, indicating active sycosis.

KEYWORDS: oxytocin; milk ejection reflex; letdown; gag reflex; vaccination-induced sycosis; Kali Carbonicum
