Menopause is a time of transition. It signals the end of our biological creativity, our child bearing years. It also marks the start of a new phase, in which our creativity can find new channels of expression, and a deeper wisdom can emerge.
In my mother’s time menopause had particularly bad press: loss of fertility and attractiveness, unsettling physical and emotional symptoms, especially in the peri-menopause or lead up phase. And afterwards … a barren existence.
Today this bleak picture is shifting. Menopause is being acknowledged as a rite of passage and an opportunity to reconnect with a sense of our inherent power as individuals.
Yet, as with any transition, we may need support as we adjust to physical, emotional and even spiritual changes that accompany what is essentially a major shift in the hormone cycles and levels in our bodies.
Homeopathy – A Gentle Alternative
Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine that stimulates the body’s innate healing power.
Homeopathic medicine can provide low-risk and natural support to women undergoing menopause, enabling the hormone system to achieve a natural and easeful transition.
Homeopathic medicines have no dangerous sequelae.
Homeopathy is highly individualised. The unique symptoms that you experience will determine which remedy is prescribed.
One Woman’s Experience
‘Two days after taking my homeopathic remedy I was thrilled to discover how rapidly the hot flushes diminished.
Homeopathy is for me the perfect alternative to HRT, a path I was determined to avoid.
I only wish more women would consider homeopathy at this time in their lives.
After all, menopause is a natural progression in a woman’s life.. It only seems right to seek out treatment for the body and soul.’ – Barbara, Cremorne, 55 years.
