Samara Was Purged, Not Born
The Chinese perscription is for a (drink? drug? herb?) that is supposed to cleanse the body. What people have missed is that this is exactly what happened-- Anna was purged of all impurities... Or, another way to put it, gave birth to Samara.

Hey that is just your opnion. Not a totally implausible one in fact but please don't be mad if I don't agree. Perhaps you are in fact right I do not actually know

Re: Samara Was Purged, Not Born
I've never thought of it that way, but that is an interesting point...

So you are supposing that Samara is "The impurity" with this hypothesis?

Interesting!

So, would she also be the reason why Anna was having all the miscarriages, and if so, why?

My Idea
This is the way that I see it:

Anna had some medical abnormality that wasn't allowing her to conceive normally. This isn't impossible; there is a condition in existance where women will conceive, but end up miscarrying later on. Sandra Thompson, wife of American journalist/author Hunter S. Thompson, suffered from this affliction.

In her desperation, Anna began seeking answers through alternative medicine. One of these medicines-- the Chinese perscription that we see in the hospital files-- was supposed to "cleanse" Anna of all impurities, thereby allowing her to have a normal pregnancy. Anna took the medicine, and it did cleanse her-- albeit in an indirect way. Rather than purge her system of impurities via normal means-- which would usually involve excessive sweating, urination, and diarhea-- Anna instead produced a living organism that was the embodiment of whatever "poison" existed in her system. Thus, Samara, the child, is in actuality a physical embodiment of all that was impure about Anna Morgan.

which would explain the defragmentation of her personality later in life, since that was a main part of her personality in this theory, one cannot live without the good and evil in themselves. she killed samara, because she was in essence killing herself, which she also did shortly afterwards.
