Menopause is not a disorder, as such, but like puberty, a period of physical and emotional change to which some women adjust better than others. The first sign is a disruption of the menstrual cycle, and then the eventual cessation of all periods, this can happen as early as age 40 or as late as age 58 (generally around 50 years of age). Symptoms of diminishing hormone production by ovaries can include hot flushes and sweating, joint pains, Headache, dryness of the vagina, irritability, Depression and sleep problems, but only 1 in 4 women experience these symptoms to a distressing or inconvenient degree. Homeopathic views of menstrual problems is that they represent imbalances which have been present for a long time; treatment is therefore constitutional, although the remedies below can also be tried for relief.
Menopause has been treated by homeopathy.
Menopause requires detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
