10 Top homeopathic remedies for menopausal symptoms

Homeopathic remedies for menopausal symptoms



















If you are looking for a natural treatment to tackle those annoying menopausal symptoms, have you ever thought about giving homeopathy a try?


Homeopathy is all about tailoring the treatment to you, taking into account not just the physical symptoms but also how you're feeling emotionally. It's like a personalised care package for your well-being.


Did you know that homeopathy has a good track record in dealing with menopausal symptoms?


A study on the effectiveness of homeopathy shows the success of homeopathic treatments for perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms. The study found that homeopathy was found to be useful in relieving menopausal symptoms including hot flashes, night sweats, anxiety, palpitation, depression, or insomnia.


What are your menopausal symptoms? What have you tried to alleviate them?

Finding the best remedy for those perimenopausal ups and downs is all about finding the right match. We're looking for that remedy that mirrors how you're feeling the most.


You may want to self-prescribe and treat yourself. However, if there is no improvement after a few weeks you may want to speak with a trained homeopath.


My approach is that I also often use homeopathic liver support remedies as the liver works very hard during menopause. I also often use remedies to support the adrenals, as the adrenals take over hormone production from the ovaries during perimenopause.


Most people that come to see me want to try the natural approach to managing their menopausal symptoms.


The first consultation is an assessment where we go through your symptoms in a lot of detail. I like to ask a lot of questions about the menopausal symptoms that you are experiencing.


We then have follow-up appointments every 4-6 weeks. These follow-on treatments are important to ensure gradual progress. In the follow-up appointments, we discuss any changes and how you are feeling.


I want women to know that they have a choice. They do not have to take HRT, if they choose not to. They do not have to take anti-depressants if they choose not to.

This way is a natural and gentle way to go through menopause.
