Do you count Vitamins as medicine? because they aren't really, they are just a way to assist in the nutrition and getting nutrients that our food and diets lack. I would consider that a natural way to get healthy.

As for medication and drugs, I would assume if you're using them that you need them to be "healthy"; it might not really be a choice.

Personally right now I need to get surgery to improve my health before I can get ready to TTC.
I'm currently taking multivitamins and after surgery will take some prenatal vitamins and more folic acid. Does that mean I should click Natural? I'm confused. sorry.
Hi and thanks for replying.

Vitamins are definitely not medicine. I also consider taking vitamins as a natural way to improve your health.

Sorry to hear about the surgery - I hope everything will be fine. When are you scheduled for it?

After what you said, you could vote for natural.

I use only natural remedies like a teething necklace for teething, etc. But if I need medicine during pregnancy for high BP or whatever the case may be, than I'll take it. I had to have a c-section with Emma because I had super high blood pressure and after a long strenuous labor her heartrate kept dropping. So obviously I will do anything it takes to get my baby out safely. I may even have a scheduled c-section next time.
Hi, and wow.

Not taking medicine, congratulations. (Now everybody know where my vote is ). Not giving it to your daughter, fantastic.

I'm referring to the broad picture surrounding pregnancy - from before ttc to after weaning.

It seems as if you and I are on the same page. I also prefer not to use meds, but if things could turn into an emergency (high BP, dropping heart rate), then the mainstream medical establishment are best to offer the fastest solution.

Since 2004, I'm a fan of improving and maintaining my health naturally, but in this period my family and I did use meds a couple of times. The last time we did, was when Mary-Ann had measles and the doctor made a wrong diagnoses. She were treated her for tonsillitis. The antibiotics and cortisone made Mary-Ann's measles even worse. In the end, we found a great homeopath who helped us to rebuild Mary-Ann's immune system, using only food and natural remedies.
