Cessation of menstrual flow often creates a tidal wave of physical and emotional side effects. Homeopathy, a holistic system of healing, can address the varied mental and physical aspects that accompany this period of change.
This remedy is ideal for irritability and mood swings. Hot flashes and a feeling of constriction around the throat are other indications for Lachesis. Symptoms generally worsen when sitting or after sleep.
Sepia can help diminish sadness, weeping, and emotional sensitivity. Physical indications for sepia include vaginal dryness, loss of hair, acne, and pressure in the lower stomach.
For those feeling especially apprehensive, even afraid to be alone, Lycopodium may help. This remedy is suggested when experiencing bloating, dry skin, and acne that worsen with heat.
Belladonna is particularly good for sudden, violent outbursts, with flushed face and headache. Mood swings are accompanied by anxiety, headache, loss of desire, and vaginal dryness.
Though several remedies have the potential to heal one condition, homeopathic principles prefer the use of a single remedy. Under the guidance of a professional homeopath, who will consider present symptoms, case history, and overall health, the most beneficial treatment can be selected.
