Menopause - Treatment
Homeopathy helps with both the physical and emotional symptoms of menopause while working with a woman’s natural aging process. It enables the aging process to occur naturally and gently, without the risk of side-effects.
As each woman’s journey through menopause is unique and the symptoms can be complex in certain cases; an in-depth consultation takes place to help devise an individualized homeopathic menopause treatment plan.
For example, when it comes to hot flushes, two women may have completely different symptoms. Hot flushes may be gradual or sudden; they may occur only at night or during the day or at certain times throughout the day. A history of stress or poor diet may cause menopause symptoms for one woman, while a history of synthetic female sex hormones (through hormone replacement therapy) may cause symptoms for another. Homeopathic medicine for menopause is prescribed based on these symptoms along with a history of emotional and general health.
Conventional treatment vs. homeopathy treatment
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) involves medication that contains female hormones. The medication replaces the estrogen that your body stops making during menopause with synthetic steroid estrogen. But at the same time, hormone replacement therapy increases the risk of certain serious conditions, including:
- Heart disease
- Blood clots
- Breast cancer
Homeopathic menopause treatment works on balancing the hormones, detoxing the liver and improving energy. Homeopathic medicines help to support the natural self-healing of the female hormonal system in a non-invasive way.
According to a study published in ResearchGate, to examine the effectiveness of homeopathic menopause treatment, 99 physicians from 8 countries took part in the study which included 438 patients with an average age of 55. Homeopathic medicines for menopause were prescribed to 98% of the patients. Belladonna, sepia officinalis, lachesis mutus, sulphur and sanguinaria canadensis were the most prescribed homeopathic remedies for menopause. A non-homeopathic treatment and/or food supplement was prescribed for 2% of the patients. The homeopathic treatment resulted in a significant reduction in the frequency of hot flushes by day and night and a reduction in the daily discomfort. With homeopathic medicine for menopause, 90% of the patients reported lessening or disappearance of their symptoms within 15 days.

What happens during menopause?
Irregular vaginal bleeding
Irregular vaginal bleeding may happen when a woman is near menopause. Some women may have less severe problems with abnormal bleeding during the time prior to menopause whereas others can have excessive, unpredictable bleeding. Menses may occur more frequently (the cycle shortens in duration), or they may get farther apart (the cycle lengthens in duration) before they stop.
Hot flushes are common among women undergoing menopause. A hot flush is a feeling of warmth that spreads over the body and is often felt in the chest and head. It usually lasts for 30 seconds to several minutes.
Night sweats (episodes of drench sweating at night) sometimes accompany hot flushes. This may lead to awakening and trouble in falling asleep again; it can result in restless sleep and daytime fatigue.
Vaginal symptoms occur because the tissue lining of the vagina becomes thinner, drier and less elastic with low estrogen levels. Symptoms may include vaginal itching, dryness and pain during sexual intercourse. The vaginal changes can also increase the risk of vaginal infections. Menopause treatment is recommended for vaginal symptoms as it can lead to health complications and increase in severity.
The urethra lining (the tube leading from the bladder to release urine outside the body) also undergoes changes. It becomes drier, thinner and less elastic with declining estrogen levels. This can lead to frequent urination, leakage of urine or risk of urinary tract infection.
Emotional and cognitive symptoms
Peri-menopause, also known as menopause transition, is the time when the ovaries gradually begin to make less estrogen. It often reports a variety of emotional and mental processing symptoms, including irritability, memory problems, fatigue and rapid mood changes.
Other physical changes
Many women notice weight gain during menopause. The distribution of body fat may change; body fat may deposit more in the abdominal and waist area rather than in the thighs and hips. Changes in skin texture like wrinkles may develop along with worsening of adult acne. Since the body continues to produce small quantities of the male hormone testosterone, some women may experience slight hair growth on the upper lip, chin, chest, or abdomen.
It is best recommended to get a menopause treatment at the soonest if the severity of the symptoms is affecting your physical and mental health.
