Women's Health and Homeopathy

 

    Homeopathy for women's health and well being

     >> Menopause Matters




To heal ourselves, we must connect with our bodies and honor them. We must resist the temptation to always place the body and its needs and our needs in general last. When you are healthy and in touch with your body you will be working with its rhythm and naturally taking cues from your body.

I would like to awaken that still, small, wise intuitive voice in you, the voice of your own body, which you might have ignored. I would like to support you to restore balance and harmony to your feminine experience.


      

We all want good health and to enjoy life. In today's world this means more than freeing ourselves from illness. It means living life to the full, with enhanced fitness and vitality and a positive attitude to life.

Our role as women have changed dramatically in the last fifty years and many are still struggling to find balance. A woman has moved from being a full - time homemaker concerned only with children and home affairs to now being both a homemaker and a working professional. her challenge is being able to develop her confidence and assertiveness in being able to speak out for herself and feel her equal place in the world.The challenge is to find balance the different energies of masculine and feminine, to be nurturing and assertive, to appreciate beauty, and practice practically and to honor the needs of others while also listening to one's own inner voice.

Finding the time and energy to fulfill the many roles of a woman and cope with her own needs can be difficult and can eventually take its toll on your health. The female body is such a complex of interdependence between glands, hormones and nutrition. Furthermore, the stress of modern life, tackling many tasks at the same time, can add extra stress to a woman's life and push her system out of balance.


        


Homeopathy & Women's health is a Perfect Match


Being a woman is also full of wonderful advantages such as the ability to bring a new life into the world and nurture a child through breastfeeding. Along with the joys of growing up as a woman come sometimes symptoms and conditions associated with hormonal development - from PMS and menstrual cramps to morning sickness and then, later, hot flashes. Fortunately, homeopathy supports women’s health through all the different life transitions and provides relief for many women’s common health concerns.

Homeopathy can offer good health to women in all stages of their lives from infancy through old age. It is beneficial for the full range of emotional, mental and physical problems that a woman is likely to experience, and can help her through the transitional and developmental milestones of her life. Homeopathy works to restore balance and well being of your body along any stage of this journey.



 Teenagers


 During the teen years homeopathy can help with the hormonal changes of puberty and the acne that often appears at this time. During this period there can be many conflicting emotions – confusion, excitement, fear and aggression to name but a few. They face the pressures of school work, extracurricular activities, peer pressure, a social life as well as many physical changes. Homeopathy can support teenagers with the physical and emotional challenges faced as they move from childhood into adulthood.



Menstrual problems


The menstrual cycle is at the very centre of our being as women. Generally the hormonal system maintains its own balance, however when out of balance the symptoms can cause great distress both emotionally and physically.

Homeopathic treatment is effective in helping problems associated with menstruation - heavy bleeding, prolonged periods, painful periods, absent periods, etc. It is quite common for women who have experienced debilitating menstrual cramps for many years to have pain-free menstrual cycles after treatment.

 

When supporting a woman with the symptom of PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome), the homeopathic practitioner will select the most appropriate remedy that covers the range of symptoms experienced. These may include fluid retention, breast tenderness, headaches, irritability, weepiness, mood swings.  

Homeopathy can also help with emotional issues such as sleep problems, anxiety, concentration difficulties, eating disorders, mood swings and over-sensitivity.

 Though a break from menstruation, pregnancy may bring morning sickness and other troublesome symptoms.  Many prescription and herbal medications are not safe for pregnant women, but homeopathy is safe and effective for various concerns during pregnancy, labor and delivery when prescribed by an experienced homeopath.

Once a woman's hormones begin to shift towards menopause, she may have hot flashes.  Women experience menopause symptoms to a varying degree, so hot flashes and night sweats can range from mild to intense.

Women, especially those with more intense symptoms, may get the most benefit from a constitutional remedy prescribed by a professional homeopath. Constitutional prescribing takes into consideration many factors and helps balance a woman's physical and emotional state. 



 Infertility

Homeopathy is beneficial for helping with a range of infertility problems. It can be used alone or alongside conventional fertility treatment and is a safe and natural way to boost the functioning of the reproductive system.

There are many factors that affect fertility levels such as a hormonal imbalance, polycystic ovaries or endometriosis. There may also be less obvious problems that can contribute to infertility such as depression, fear of conceiving, stress or dietary problems. These issues and many of the trials and frustrations that couples go through trying to get pregnant can successfully benefit from homeopathic treatment.

Because homeopathic medicines can be effective in reestablishing health in women's reproductive organs, it follows that they can be helpful in reestablishing fertility. Homeopathic constitutional care, rather than self-care, is necessary for treating problems of fertility. 

         


     Pregnancy  & Childbirth ISIS - ACTIVE BIRTH


Pregnancy is a whole area of complex emotional and physical changes were symptoms are particularly difficult to treat with conventional medicine.

Homeopathy empowers the pregnant and birthing woman with a gentle, yet powerful support to overcome the many challenges along the way. Homeopathy offers a safe alternative to both mother and child through pregnancy, into childbirth and even during breastfeeding.


          


Menopause Menopause Matters


Menopause is not a disease; it is a natural progression in a woman’s life. For some the transition is an exciting time of new beginnings, a time for doing the things they have only dreamed about. For others the menopause means a host of troublesome symptoms and disturbing changes. Hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings to name but a few!

The increasing awareness of unpleasant side effects of hormone replacement therapy (HRT), is also a concern for many and has led more and more women to turn to complementary medicine. Homeopathy offers a safe, gentle and effective alternative that works with your body to restore a healthy balance and minimise distress during this period.

During and after the menopause the hormones undergo a huge upheaval with some women faring better than others. Homeopathy can help with the associated symptoms such as hot flushes, menstrual irregularities, incontinence and insomnia, mood swings, headaches, heavy bleeding, irregular menstruation, night sweats, insomnia.


        


Cystitis (Bladder Infection)


Another extremely common condition for which homeopathic medicines seem to work wonders is cystitis (bladder infection). While professional homeopathic care and/or medical attention should be sought to help recurring bladder symptoms and for severe symptoms, an individually chosen homeopathic medicine can alleviate the pain and discomfort of most acute conditions.


        


Yeast Infection - Candida


The reasons why we get yeast infections also differ between the sexes, which is interesting to note. Women can suffer from the condition through any number of factors, such as a change in stress levels or through being fatigued, not properly drying yourself after showering, using ill-fitting underwear, and even through using perfumed deodorant sprays in the genital area.

There are many home style treatments for this particular disease. If you want to be able to get rid of the infection right away then it would be a good idea to do them simultaneously. Here are a couple of things you can easily do straight away that may help:


 


Improve your Diet


Creating a better diet plan is a great tool that you can use to help you fight the disease. Improving your diet can help you build a stronger immune system which in turn can help to eradicate the problem long term. There are many diet plans available with a particular emphasis on managing yeast infection so look for one that suits your lifestyle so you’ll be able to continue with it long term.


 


Try some natural remedies


Getting treatment the natural way is one of the best ways for you to approach the disease. There are homeopathic options you can try that can really be of great benefit without any side effects associated with some medications.

Often, natural treatments can be combined with aspects of orthodox medicine to produce a more favourable outcome.  "Walking on two legs is better than walking on one". - Chinese proverb.

There are times you want to overcome a problem on your own; at other times, you may feel unable to take on the responsibility. Certain problems are treatable at home, but others need help of a practitioner.

It is important to remember to consult with your healthcare practitioner if symptoms worsen or continue without improvement.


 

ALWAYS SEEK THE ADVICE OF YOUR PHYSICIAN OR OTHER QUALIFIED HEALTH PROVIDER PRIOR TO STARTING ANY NEW TREATMENT OR WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE REGARDING A MEDICAL CONDITION.
