The disruption of the normal menstrual cycle after the age of about 45 years and the consequent loss of the ability to conceive is known as menopause. The associated symptoms of menopause are heat flushes, insomnia, weight gain, depression, nausea and fatigue. While hormone replacement therapy is the most common treatment to provide relief from menopausal symptoms, homeopathic remedies can be used for the same to give the patient a natural process of treatment without any side effects as opposed to hormone replacement therapy.
1. A balanced diet which provides optimal nutrition can be helpful. When one gets enough vitamins and minerals, the physical discomfort caused by the symptoms can be reduced greatly.
2. Excessive deposition of fat can interfere with the hormonal cycles and cause imbalances in the level of estrogen and progesterone. So, regular yoga and exercise can be helpful.
5, Phosphorus – It can help with migraines, extreme sweating, numb hands, fast pulse, memory problems and dry and itchy skin. Foods high in phosphorus content are meat, fish, cheese, nuts and seeds of pumpkins, sunflowers etc.
6. Aurum metallicum – Is used to get the tissues and organs to function normally again and control feelings of anxiety and claustrophobia.
7. Aconitum napellus – Is a flowering plant and its extracts can reduce panic attacks, heat flushes, over excitability and depressive symptoms.
11. Natrum muriaticum – In small amounts, helps to reduce stress. Stress can cause problems in thyroid function, cognitive functioning, digestive system functioning and it can elevate blood pressure levels rapidly.

The fundamental principle of Homeopathy is the Law of Similars or 'like cures like'. Homeopathy looks at the general health condition of the person and then remedies are prescribed that can stimulate the body to function to its optimum capacity by initiating it’s natural healing processes without introducing harmful chemicals. This can naturally eliminate diseased cells and tissues from the body.
1. Individualized treatment
A homeopathic practitioner evaluates the patient's overall health and discusses his problems and expectations before prescribing treatment. All the homeopathic remedies are made with the individual's specific climatic conditions, allergies, stress factors, food habits and lifestyle in mind. Homeopathy also optimizes the immune system (unlike allopathy, which weakens it) and it is equally effective for physical and psychological disorders.
2. No side effects
Homeopathic medicines are made from natural substances and so they are non-toxic and free from side effects. They are given to the patient in small doses and so, the healing approach is gentle and gradual. They can also be used by people of all ages and even those in delicate conditions like pregnancy, chronic diseases etc. Even if the wrong medicine is prescribed to the patient, it does not cause much harm to the body.
3. Easily accessible
Homeopathic remedies are available in most places as they are made directly from the abundant natural resources. There are also several alternatives to a medicine depending on the kinds of plants and minerals found in a particular region. Moreover, the medicines do not have an expiration date and can be stored for a long period of time if they are kept properly.
No homeopathic remedy involves surgical procedures or invasive techniques. So, there is absolutely no chance of infection or further complication. The medicines and therapies are also aimed at eliminating the root cause of the disorder instead of just providing temporary relief from the symptoms.
5. Not addictive
Once the disease is healed, the person can easily stop using the medicines since they have no addictive property. This is because the active ingredient is used in minute quantities in homeopathic medication. Hence, these remedies are also safe for infants, children, pregnant and breastfeeding women, aged people and people with addiction problems.
