Have you heard the one about the seven menopausal dwarves? -
and HOT ...
… I’m only half joking.
But seriously my dears, ‘The Change of Life’ doesn’t have to be a grim tale about a wicked witch of a hormonal system: there are good fairies and other allies in the form of complementary and alternative health care practitioners like myself, a homeopath who’s been through it herself, and who can help you along the way.
Menopause issues almost always need a layered approach, because those ruddy hormones, combined with the effects of our life and previous body history, can affect us on every level in a variety of ways. So each woman has different menopause care needs at different stages of this natural transition. But you can get through the forest safely and come out happily on the other side.
If you’d like some help in getting through your menopause as naturally as we know how, and with a little more grace and style than can be the case, email or message me to book a FREE fifteen minute chat to introduce your case and find out how homeopathy could help you.
Cases from my files:*
Mrs SG - desperate hot flushes were keeping her awake all night, with a horrible knock on effect on life and work during the day - “It feels like I’m losing my mind!” In her particular case a mix of Oophorinum*, Sepia* and sage as a herbal supplement let her function well again, enabling her to get through a part-time professional training course, as well as working in her financially responsible day job.
Mrs SR – This woman experienced daytime hot flushes so bad she had to stop driving and get out of her car - “Sweat just pours off of me! I have to take a change of clothes with me wherever I go!” This was accompanied by real states of rage – “I think I could murder someone in that state, I really do.” Tuberculinum*, Lachesis* and Nux vomica* brought her back to normalcy.
Mrs SM-J – Menopause began with months of heavy, increasingly constant flooding which was brought to heel with the remedy Folliculinum*, after Trillium* and Sabina* hadn’t quite done the trick.
Mrs SC – A late menopause brought this very caring woman terrible mood swings, of which she felt deeply ashamed: “My daughter said ‘You get so angry mum, you can be really scary at times’.” On top of this she suffered with a maddeningly itchy rash of tiny blisters around the soles and insteps of her feet (pompholyx). “I have to go out to the car for privacy to scratch them as hard as I need, sometimes till they bleed.”
Anacardium* was the right remedy for her mental and emotional picture; it partially helped her skin symptoms, but Rhus tox* finished the job. At her last appointment she met me with a big grin on her face and said “I don’t need to see you anymore.”
Happy patient = happy homeopath.
