Although homeopathic substances listed in this article are generally not known to cause serious side effects, their effectiveness has not been demonstrated by scientific research. Consumers should check labels carefully, since a homeopathic product that is not diluted, or not diluted enough, may contain ingredients that cause allergic reactions, side effects, or interactions. It is always advisable to discuss any new treatment program with your healthcare practitioner.

When women reach the age of menopause, hormonal shifts can cause both physical and emotional stress. Because of the inevitable but sometimes disconcerting signs of aging, as well as transitions involved with children growing up, a woman’s life may be undergoing major changes at this time. Mood swings, depression, hot flashes, cold sweats, and irregular menstrual cycles—including missed periods and flooding—may all occur (over months to years) as the woman’s body gradually adapts. Although these symptoms go away on their own in time, a correctly-chosen homeopathic remedy often helps to ease them. A constitutional remedy, and the guidance of an experienced homeopath, can be reassuring and helpful for both physical and emotional aspects of menopause.
