Homeopathy Effective for Menopausal Symptoms

A new study published this week adds to the growing body of evidence showing homeopathic treatment to be potentially effective in the treatment of the menopausal problems of women. Meanwhile there is growing controversy surrounding the use of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) with recent research linking it with increased risk of certain types of cancer, cardiovascular disease and strokes (1,2).  

The latest volume of the journal 'Homeopathy' contains a study showing the potential benefit of homeopathy in the treatment of hot flushes (3). This study builds on earlier studies (4, 5, 6, 7) which also show potential positive benefit of homeopathic treatment for menopausal women.  While the debate on how homeopathy may work continues, the increasing research evidence that it is helpful in an area such as the menopause where conventonal treatment would appear to hold some rsks should make homeopathic treatment a first option for consideration by women and their health professionals seeking help in this area.
