The disruption of the normal menstrual cycle in a female after the age of about 40 years and the consequent inability to conceive is known as menopause. The symptoms associated with menopause are:
- Hot flushes
- Weight gain
- Irritability and mood changes
While hormone replacement therapy is the most popular treatment to provide relief from menopausal symptoms, Homeopathic remedies can be used for the same as a more gentle and natural form of treatment. These help in regulating the hormonal imbalance occurring during menopause and aide a smooth transition. The Homeopathic remedy selected after a detailed understanding and study of the patient as a whole helps the Homeopath to treat her correctly and provide relief from peri and post-menopausal symptoms.
The following complementary measures along with Homeopathic medicines may be useful too:
- A balanced diet that provides optimal nutrition is helpful. Nutrients like vitamin B12 and minerals like magnesium and potassium help alleviate the discomfort.
- Excessive deposition of fat can interfere with estrogen and progesterone levels. Regular yoga and exercise can be helpful to prevent this.
- Phytoestrogen or dietary estrogen is a compound found in foods such as soybeans, oats, barley, carrots, fenugreek, rice, etc. Phytoestrogen can provide natural relief from menopausal symptoms.
Some of the commonly used Homeopathic remedies to treat menopause are:
- Bryonia Alba
- Natrum muriaticum
- Nux vomica
- Amylenum Nitrosum
- Aurum Metallicum
- Aconitum Napellus
- Argentum Nitricum
These remedies mentioned are merely examples to explain how there are different Homeopathic medicines that can help with menopause. The correct remedy can only be chosen after taking into consideration the whole history of the patient, under the supervision and expertise of a qualified and trained Homeopath. It is recommended to never self-medicate without consulting a qualified Homeopath.
