Natural Remedies for Menstrual Problems

Natural Remedies for Menstrual Problems. If your doctors are scratching their heads or are offering only heavy drugs, you may wish to consider homeopathy as a solution for your periods problems, from irregularities to fNatural Remedies for Menstrual Problemsull absence.

Besides the obvious explanation (pregnancy), which you must always check for, there are many reasons why, suddenly, you period is absent, skips a month or even several months.  Even if you’ve checked and you are one hundred per cent that it’s no due to pregnancy, you still need to monitor the situation because, if it continues to be absent, you will need to talk to your doctor or, better even, a gynecologist about it.

However, having said this, the absence of your menstrual cycle can be due stress or temporary hormonal imbalances; in these cases, homeopathy can be very useful in making sure that your body finds its balance again and resumes functioning correctly.

Hormonally, absent periods can be due to the ‘malfunctioning’ of pituitary gland, for example; this may trigger imbalances between estrogen and progesterone or even decreasing levels of one of them.  Homeopathic remedies can therefore be useful in regulating what causes or contributes to amenorrhea.  As you may already know, homeopathic remedies treat symptoms and other conditions which may accompany such symptoms; they also take into account the overall constitution of the patient; therefore, what works for me may not work for you and each person may find relief in a set of different homeopathic treatments.  Having said this, these are the natural remedies for menstrual problems (in the homeopathic field) that seem to work generally speaking:
