Our health is affected by the passage of time through our lives, from conception all the way through to death. There are adjustments and challenges, physical and emotional, which are particular to each age.
Menopause is one of life’s great transitions and, like adolescence – that other great biological life transition – it is a change over which we have relatively little control. Menopause can pass by almost unnoticed, with very little fuss or trouble, with no hot flashes and an unceremonious ending of the menstrual periods. Or it can be lingeringly difficult, with hot flashes lasting for years, or debilitating symptoms like depression and menstrual flooding with anemia and exhaustion.
Each person varies; each menopause will affect each woman differently, and each woman will find their own health affected in different ways. The following chart may be useful for selecting a homeopathic remedy that can give symptomatic relief for some common menopause complaints.
Take the selected remedy in a low potency (6C, 30X or 30C).
Repeat the remedy 2-4 times a day according to the seriousness of your symptoms (less serious, less often; more serious more often).
Stop taking it as soon you notice an improvement. A homeopathic medicine acts as a catalyst, stimulating the body to heal itself. You only need take the “minimum” dose or amount needed to stimulate that healing response.
If the same symptoms return then repeat the same remedy – starting and stopping – until there is more lasting improvement.
If you have taken a remedy for 3-5 days with no improvement then it is probably the wrong one. Select a different remedy and/or seek professional help.
If you have had a constitutional remedy prescribed by your homeopath within the past 6 months, check with them first before taking any remedies to treat your symptoms yourself.
