Homeopathic medicine is a medical system that uses highly diluted doses of natural substances, such as sepia, to stimulate a person's immune and defence system. Sepia 200 treats a range of diseases, most of which affect the female reproductive system.


Sepia is a pure ink pigment found in cuttlefish. When threatened, it releases spurts of dark ink, or sepia. The ink is collected for preparation and diluted with large quantities of milk sugar for final use.

Common Uses

Sepia is mainly used for gynaecological complaints such as premenstrual syndrome, painful or heavy menstruation, hot flushes, emotional and physical symptoms during and after pregnancy, candida, and sagging or prolapsed uterus. It is used for women who suffer pain during sexual intercourse.

Homeopathic physicians prescribe Sepia 200 to patients whose symptoms include apathy and moodiness. It treats symptoms such as exhaustion and muscle weakness, indigestion, gas and tenderness, headaches, nausea, dizziness, hair loss, itchy or discoloured patches of skin, circulatory problems, and profuse sweating.

Administration & Side Effects

Sepia is available in C potency's --one part sepia and 99 parts milk sugar. The available forms are sugar pellets and as a liquid. Because it is a homeopathic remedy, the above ailments can be treated without a prescription.

Homeopathic remedies are not known to produce side effects, as they have no effect except when matched with particular symptoms. Individual aggravations may occur, such as headaches and nausea.
