Thirty-five-year-old Shikha came to us with complaints of increased menstruation for over a year, because of which her haemoglobin levels had gone down markedly. She was prescribed iron supplements by her conventional physician. However, she could not ‘digest’ them. Besides, she developed severe constipation after consuming them. Slowly, her habit of straining at stool led to piles (haemorrhoids) and bleeding. When she came to us, she said that she preferred her profuse menses to her troublesome evacuation.
On detailed case-taking, we found that she was mild- natured, sensitive, lethargic and also indecisive. She did not feel thirsty and would consume just 2-3 glasses of water a day.
We prescribed her an appropriate homeopathic remedy, based on her mild and over-sentimental temperament with thirstlessness and menstrual excess. This not only relieved her heavy periods and anaemia, but also eased her constipation and piles.
Iron in tonics, or as supplement, has its own ‘side- effects,’ the most common being constipation. Shikha took iron pills, all right — this only aggravated her constipation. This, in turn, led to piles. The bleeding triggered her anaemia to perpetuate into other health problems.
Homeopathic treatment helped her absorb natural iron from her daily diet, rather than depend on supplemental iron or its spin-off, constipation. It also corrected the quandary of secondary bleeding which had led to anaemia.
How homeopathy can help women facing menstrual difficulties?
Some women have very little trouble with their menstrual cycles, but others face a monthly ordeal. An array of stressful symptoms - irritability, mood swings, headaches, bloating, water retention, soreness of the breasts - may occur with premenstrual syndrome. Periods can be irregular and troubled, with cramping, abnormally heavy flow, and various discomforts. It constitutes a significant problem in pre-menopausal women, resulting in adverse health, reduced quality of life and much disruption in the lives of those afflicted.
Homeopathy has the answer for all these discomforts you go through. The functional hormonal balance is restored without hormonal drugs and their side-effects. The hormonal balance is restored by the action of treatment on uterus, ovaries, and whole of body. The nervous system, blood vessels and muscles are toned and the mind is also calmed down.
Homeopathic medicines help to maintain emotional, mental, physiological and immune responses of the individual to ensure long lasting and permanent relief. The treatment helps women to stay healthy before and during the menstrual cycle as well as during the perimenopause and menopause – without unwanted side effects.
There are various homeopathic medicines which give great relief in menorrhagia (profuse, protracted, prolonged menses or periods). The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient.
Before going for a consultation with doctors, the patient should track the symptoms, if any, their frequency as well as their severity. The patient should note when she last had her period and report any irregularities that she may have observed. She should also, make a list of medications and supplements she is currently taking.
Different women experience different symptoms in varied intensities while going through menopause. At Dr Batra’s™, we have customised treatment plans for such patients. Our treatments are natural and without any side-effects.
