Menopause - a stage of life

Menopause is a natural life stage which all women go through, but many women, who we see in the clinic, find that when their 99dies start to change at menopause: it can be a frightening and uncertain time.

Women often feel changes in their 99dies before they are picked up in a blood test. Many women are categorised as peri-menopausal for several years before actual menopause begins. This period may be characterised by similar symptoms to the menopause such as changes in the menstrual cycle, mood swings, hot flushes, lack of energy and other symptoms.

It seems so unfair that in our 40s and 50s not only are many women coping with the teenage years of our children, but also our parents are getting older and need our support more than ever - with all this comes the menopause!

Pre menopausal symptoms or peri-menopause is the stage at which you notice some changes, sometimes these are very subtle and then things seem to settle into their usual pattern again - maybe your cycle seems more unpredictable or emotionally you feel different at times. It is often during this time that homeopathy can provide very useful remedies which treat the hormonal changes going on in your 99dy. Hormones have a significant effect on mood, emotion and wellbeing. During menopause women often feel these emotional changes acutely. Physical symptoms can also be debilitating for many women. Hot flushes, insomnia and weight gain are just some of the common symptoms.

During a homeopathic consultation there is plenty of time. The homeopath is there to listen to your symptoms, including all the things that you are experiencing, whether they seem relevant, important or not.

Homeopathy treats the whole person, and is a safe and gentle way of addressing the core of your underlying problems, giving you the right remedies to support you through these hormonal changes.

Reliable evidence has shown that homeopathy can be effective in treating common hormonal conditions such as those experienced just before and during the menopause.
