Growing numbers of women are making it abundantly clear that there is life after menopause. Tired of the often dangerous or uncomfortable side effects of conventional hormone replacement therapy, women are seeking safer, more holistic ways of approaching the physical and emotional symptoms of menopause.
Homeopathy is especially appropriate for treating a wide range of specific problems related to this transitional life period because the remedies are highly potent and completely free of the toxic side effects associated with drugs. In addition, the whole person is treated - not just isolated symptoms - and emotional issues are given as much weight as physical ones.
Accepting menopause as a natural and essentially positive stage in a woman's life, author Beth MacEoin clearly explains the basics of homeopathy for beginners, outlining step-by-step the process of considering the overall symptom picture and selecting the proper remedy and dosage. She shows you how to treat common discomforts that may arise before, during, or after menopause, including menstrual irregularities, hot flashes, night sweats, depression, low self-esteem, weight gain, sleep disturbances, and aching joints.
Taking a broad perspective on promoting good health and general well-being, the author also covers ways to guard against osteoporosis and suggests other self-help measures that will support homeopathic treatment. Beth MacEoin is the author of several books, including 'Homeopathy', 'Homeopathy for Babies and Children', and 'Health by Nature'. A practicing homeopath, she lives in England.
