Is menopause an illness? Does it need to be treated?
No it isn’t an illness. Some women experience few limited symptoms during and leading up to a cessation of their menstration as well as post menopause. For these women, herbal therapy and dietetic changes generally address their concerns.
However for women who have more than limited symptoms and who experience severe headaches, weight gain, irritability, depression and sweats, menopause can be extremely debilitating.
This condition requires and responds well to homeopathic treatment.
Will homeopathic treatment address other symptoms I may have like sleeplessness and forgetfulness?
Many patients have told me that both of these issues are the worst aspect during the menopause or post-menopause period. Homeopathic remedies can gently re-balance the hormonal system to illeviate the symptoms. No need for prescription hormones which have been found in studies to heighten the risk for different chronic diseases.
My doctor told me I am in peri-menopause. How does that differ from menopause?
Peri-menopause is a term allopaths use to describe when women still have their period but on an irregular basis, e.g. once every three months. Homeopathic treatment at this time works to ease your hormonal system reducing the symptoms resulting in a much less intense experience during full menopause.
