Menopause Treatment

Menopause treatment and alternative solutions for menopause relief. 

Approaches to treating menopause

Allopathic 
Allopathic medicine is what we think of as regular medical treatment that's provided by a medical doctor that holds a M.D. degree. 

Complementary 
Complementary or alternative therapies aren't specifically proven, but can often provide great relief. Alternative medicine includes all nonallopathic therapies, such as homeopathy, acupuncture, and herbs. 

Herbal 
Women are more often these days turning to herbs for menopause treatment. Herbal medicine is the tradition by which much of pharmacology was originally based. 

Herbs are available in different forms. 

A tincture 
A tincture is an alcohol extract of a herb. For example, one might take an ounce of St. John's wort blossoms and pour over them an ounce or two of pure grain alcohol and let the mixture sit for about six weeks. Tinctures are the most potent forms of herbal medicine. However, they don't taste very good. 

A tea 
A tea is made by pouring very hot water over leaves, twigs, roots, or fruits of a plant. Very occasionally a tea can be made by boiling the dried herb in the water. Sage tea is an example of a tea that's boiled to evaporate the toxic chemicals. 

An infusion 
An infusion is made by steeping fresh herb in cold or hot liquid. When you make sun tea, you are making an infusion.

Allopathic, Complementary, Herbal, and Homeopathic Therapeutics


Self treating with herbals

Remember that anything that is potent enough to have significant beneficial effect may also have potent side effects. Make every effort to educate yourself, and inform all health care providers about all the medications you're taking. Herbs for menopause can be very valuable, but be sure to treat them with respect. 


Homeopathic medicines and Menopause Treatment

Homeopathy is an approach to treatment that is no longer taught in medical schools or used in US hospitals. In the US today there is a revival of interest in homeopathy, and many lay practitioners practice homeopathy. 

The following are the basic principles of homeopathy... 

  • The action of a drug can be observed by administering it to a healthy person and then observing and recording the resulting symptoms and objective physical findings. This process is called proving.


  • The action of the drug in the healthy person demonstrates the therapeutic action in a sick person.


  • The remedy will be chosen by a similarity in the disease process and the "proving" of a drug in a healthy person. The drug that causes a picture most like the signs and symptoms of the illness is the drug of choice for menopause treatment.
