  • I loved Sunday with Dr Saunders. He has so much insight and his lectures are so interesting.  I love how he presents his own case, then talks about physiology, pathology, pharmacology, medical terms, peppered with the materia medica and nutrition, and a bit of posology and philosophy. He is such...

Many women experience peri-menopause and menopause as a time of greater freedom. For some their children are leaving or have left home, others have found satisfaction in their careers and perhaps mastery in their work. It can also be a time of enormous caretaking challenges with parents. For some, an unlived life cries out to be fulfilled. This is a great time of “pause”. An opportunity to reflect and reclaim and rediscover any “lost” parts of ourselves – a chance to empower our future.

Menopause derives its name from the Greek words Meno (month) and Pausis (pause). This is the cessation of regular, monthly menstrual cycles. The ovaries decrease their production of estrogen and progesterone as our need to reproduce diminishes and stops. Hormonal fluctuations occur. The menstrual cycle may shorten (i.e. menses become more frequent) followed by a lengthening when menses become less frequent. A woman who has not had a menstrual cycle for 12 months is considered to be menopausal. Menopause can pass by almost unnoticed, or it can be lingeringly difficult. Women can experience symptoms on any or all levels – mental, emotional and physical. Some changes may include: hot flashes, night sweats, menstrual flooding with anaemia and exhaustion, vaginal dryness, palpitations, weight gain, loss of libido, mood swings, sleeping difficulties, anxiety or depression.

Homeopathy treats the whole woman and caters to the array of presenting symptoms and emotions throughout this transition. Treatment is tailored to one’s personality and distinctive array of symptoms. Each of us has a unique energy pattern shaped by our beliefs, emotions and habitual thoughts. By matching energetic patterns of homeopathic remedies with those of our symptoms, areas of stagnation become unblocked. With a renewed sense of well being we can enjoy having our natural occurring energy available to take charge of our health now.

A dramatic career change, the loss of both parents, and adjustments in relationship all occurred for me during this time of life. Homeopathic remedies proved incredibly helpful for navigating symptoms and helping me on this journey towards wholeness, which is life! While physical symptoms can be successfully addressed, I have found again and again with my clients that homeopathy can teach and gently guide us along the path to the still point within – the flame of Spirit inherent in each of us. Our path to this place of radical union is our sacred journey. Fraught with adventure of every discernible nature – we are all riding this stream of life.
