Ease your symptoms with homeopathy

PRESS RELEASE

For immediate release: 4 November 2009

Ease your symptoms with homeopathy

As women approach the menopause, their hormone levels can spiral out of control, leaving them with troublesome symptoms like hot flushes and night sweats. Homeopathy can help to stimulate and support the body’s response to these natural hormone changes. This popular holistic therapy has been shown to be safe and effective for various menopausal symptoms with no toxic side effects.

In the Autumn 2009 issue of The Menopause Exchange newsletter, GP Dr Jeni Worden has written an article on homeopathy at the menopause. She covers the safe use of homeopathy, using the right remedies and choosing remedies for a range of menopausal symptoms like hot flushes, night sweats, vaginal dryness and weight gain.

“Some women find that homeopathy is very effective for their menopausal symptoms,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. “However, for complicated or long-term problems not suitable for self-prescribing, it is important to consult an experienced practitioner rather than treat yourself with over-the-counter products. The practitioner can tailor the homeopathic remedy to suit your individual menopausal symptoms and take into account your personality (e.g. temperament).”

The Menopause Exchange is completely independent – it’s not sponsored by any companies and is funded purely by subscriptions from individuals and healthcare professionals. Other articles in the Autumn 2009 issue include seeing your GP about the menopause, the oestrogen story and digestive problems.

Christmas and New Year special offer: Annual membership to The Menopause Exchange for £15 instead of £18. This includes quarterly newsletters and quarterly fact sheets and access to our information service and Ask the Experts panel.
