Natural treatments are preferable to synthetic drugs
Acupuncture – Rebalances the body’s energy systems, making the transition more graceful and free from negative symptoms. One study showed a 36.7% decrease in symptoms, with results lasting for 6 months or more after treatment.
Aromatherapy – There are specific oils for hormonal balance. For example, geranium helps with hot flushes, the emotional highs and lows roller coaster, and dry skin that sometimes plagues women at that time of their life.
Counselling – Sharing the mental and emotional things that are going on with the changes in your body and your life at that time can be very helpful
Crystal Chakra Balancing – clears energy blockages in the chakras and if that energy system is working at its peak then dramatic body changes aren’t so traumatic
Herbal Supplements may assist. For example
- Sage helps to relive the symptoms of night sweats and hot flushes
- Wild yam is good for your natural progesterone. Compared to synthetic drugs, this natural source of progesterone is easy to convert to oestrogen.
Synthetic drugs used in HRT have been linked to breast cancer, whereas there are no studies which link natural treatments to cancer.
There are also special chinese herbal combinations which are specifically designed for menopause.
Aromatherapy and Remedial Massage can be very helpful at this time too. The massage will release muscular tensions, ease lymphatic flow and eliminate toxins. It also aids general relaxation. Essential oils used in aromatherapy help balance the body, mind & spirit. Individual blends are created according to the individual’s present symptoms & problem areas they are choosing to address.
