Menopause or climacteric is a natural biological process that occurs in a woman's life between 40 and 50 years of age and is characterized by a decrease in estrogen until the complete cessation of menstruation.
This transition, in grandma's distant and recent past, was much more quietly passed between women and healers than it is today. This is probably because the diet, conditions and priorities of life were different from today. The consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables was greater, while prepared and processed food was not on the daily table. Women spent more time on the land, their daily lives were filled with traditional tasks
(kneading, raising children, caring for parents, working in the fields) and adapting to the changes of time was easier than today. On the other hand, nowadays, women are bombarded with promises of beauty products to prolong youth, skin tightening procedures, chemical drugs to combat symptoms, with the result that time is seen as an enemy rather than a friend in her journey. of life.
Contrary to the trend of society and the approach of modern medicine, which tends to treat menopause as a disease by administering synthetic estrogens to prolong the monthly cycle, the herbal compositions of the older healers were the main help for dealing with hot flashes, headaches, insomnia, tachycardia, nausea.
In recent years, the number of women who choose alternative treatments, specifically homeopathy, to deal with menopause is constantly increasing. Homeopathic medicine stays away from chemical substances and its potentized therapeutic preparations come from the plant, animal and mineral kingdoms. Through the holistic approach, it strengthens the body's self-healing mechanism and the patient sees it
treatment both in the body and in his mental and emotional world, without any side effects as chemical drugs often present.
One of the most frequent and persistent symptoms of climacteric is hot flashes which are often accompanied by rapid heartbeats and sweating on the face and upper body. Most of the time, hot flashes make a woman's daily life difficult, due to their unexpected occurrence, frequency and intensity. Although hot flashes can last up to 3-4 years, with homeopathic treatment this period is not only reduced in duration, but a significant reduction in intensity and frequency is observed
during the day.
The transitional phase of menopause also affects the emotional and mental world of the woman, as she has to manage situations such as nervousness, lack of concentration, melancholy, easy fatigue and reduced libido. Homeopathy treats the person as a whole and the treatment it recommends is personalized and aims not only to resolve the physical symptoms but also to strengthen the mind, the emotional balance, so that the woman can successfully manage the new phase of her life.
