Menarche to Menopause

Women in Balance, from Menarche to Menopause – A Homeopathic Perspective

A significant portion of women’s health is intimately and intricately connected to the ebb and flow of a delicate balance of hormones that imbibes the potential to create life. These fluctuating hormonal cycles however also influence all aspects of their physical, emotional and mental well-being. What’s more, busy lives and over use of artificial hormones have led to an increase in complaints of infertility, menstrual problems, hormonal imbalances, uterine and ovarian conditions such as endometriosis, PCOS, fibroids, etc.

The key to treating all these conditions, including the transitional phases in a woman’s life, with homeopathy is finding out the characteristics of the presenting symptoms, how the problem is personally affecting her, and what happened in her life to throw her hormones off balance. Many uterine and ovarian conditions are often linked to the emotional state of the woman and are often seen where there is conflict in relationships, creativity, and reproduction. This type of remedy selection (pattern matching) based on a deeper level analysis of the legacies (genes), environment (toxicities), and personality (how the person experiences and handles stress) is called Constitutional Homeopathy, and with appropriate remedies that directly affect the HPA (Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal) axis, not only are the hormones balanced thereby addressing the pesky symptoms, but, also improves the person’s baseline level of health all around. What’s more, an improved baseline trickles down to the next generation if the woman has children in the future.
