We also treat perimenopause. Menopause is a natural process and not a disease in and of itself. Homeopathy can control any intense or uncomfortable symptoms, but does not stop the process of menopause. It can, however, halt the process of early menopause in younger women.

Scientific Studies Prove that Homeopathy is Effective for the Treatment of Menopausal Symptoms
Objective: There is great controversy concerning treatment for menopausal symptoms. We evaluated homeopathic treatments for hot flushes and their effect on quality of life in menopausal women.
Methods: Open, multi-national prospective, pragmatic and non-comparative observational study of homeopathic treatments prescribed and their effectiveness, observing their impact on quality of life.
Results:Ninety-nine physicians in 8 countries took part in this study and included 438 patients with an average age of 55.
Homeopathic medicines were prescribed to all patients; 98% of the prescription lines were for homeopathic medicines. Lachesis mutus, Belladonna, Sepia officinalis, Sulphurand Sanguinaria canadensis were the most prescribed. A non-homeopathic treatment and/or food supplement prescribed for 5% of the patients.
This observational study revealed a significant reduction (p<0.001) in the frequency of hot flushes by day and night and a significant reduction in the daily discomfort they caused (mean fall of 3.6 and 3.8 points respectively, on a 10 cm visual analogue scale;p<0.001).
Ninety percent of the women reported disappearance or lessening of their symptoms, these changes mostly taking place within 15 days of starting homeopathic treatment.
Conclusions: The results of this observational study suggest that homeopathic treatment for hot flushes in menopausal women is effective. Further studies including randomized controlled trials should be conducted.
Researchers at the Tunbridge Wells Homeopathic Hospital in the UK enrolled 31 female outpatients who had complained of menopausal flushes in this trial. They were treated using individualised homeopathic management and after their initial consultation and at least one follow-up, patients completed their own self-assessment rating of the treatment. 79% of the women enrolled in the study reported a reduction in both the severity and frequency of hot flushes as a result of the treatment.

This study compared the effects of an individualised homeopathic prescription with a homeopathic combination and placebo in 55 women suffering from menopausal symptoms for a period of 1 year. Both the individualised and combination homeopathic therapy provided an improvement in symptoms over placebo, with the individualised homeopathy showing the best outcomes over the first 3 months of the assessment period.

In a prospective study 81.4% of 102 patients reported improvement of menopause symptoms after homeopathic treatment. Main symptoms noted were hot flushes and sweats, tiredness, anxiety, sleeping difficulties, mood swings and headaches. Women referred to homeopathy were those who either could not take hormone replacement treatment (HRT), for whom HRT was unsuccessful, who did not want or who had to come off HRT. Mean length of homeopathic treatment was 5 months.

An outcome study and service evaluation of homeopathy service found that 88% of patients reported clinically significant improvement in their primary symptom. Greatest clinical benefit was reported by women for headaches, tiredness, vasomotor symptoms, locomotor symptoms and sleeping difficulties.
A case of a 57-year-old lady, with severe hot flushes- 20 per day; treated with potentised Tungsten. Also complained of constipation, loss of smell and constriction in throat. Lachesis was prescribed which did not help her much. She said that she worked hard to prove herself especially to her father, who felt that girls need not study. Here, the main theme: desire to prove and perform indicates a metal. The heavier the metal the heavier the need to perform. Frank Beijering says that he chose Tungsten based on correspondence between the thermal property of the metal with intensity of the hot flushes of the patient. After a dose of IM, the hot flushes diminished rapidly in 3 weeks; hair loss and constipation improved. She reported severe migraine attacks after 10 weeks and the remedy was repeated in LM 18 potency twice a week. She improved well under it but developed a fascination about anything connected with fire. After nine months she did not have any hot flushes.
