Soulager naturellement les symptômes de la ménopause

Natural ways to relieve menopause symptoms

Menopause is an unavoidable stage often accompanied by uncomfortable and unpleasant symptoms. Fortunately, natural and effective solutions exist to help relieve them.

What is menopause ?

Menopause usually occurs between the age of 45 and 55 and is caused by a hormonal change that stops ovulation and the secretion of estrogen and progesterone, a woman’s sex hormones. We say menopause when menstruation has stopped for at least a year. 

Perimenopause usually lasts between 2 and 7 years, it’s the period before menopause, during which menstruation begins to become irregular and symptoms begin to manifest.

For some women, menopause occurs very early, before the age of 40. This phenomenon is called early menopause. It can happen on its own, or as a result of certain diseases, surgeries (such as removing the uterus) or treatments.

What are the symptoms of menopause ?

Perimenopause and menopause are accompanied by symptoms with varying intensity from one person to another. 

The main symptoms include: 

  • irregular menstruation
  • hot flashes
  • sleep disorders
  • night sweats
  • mood swings
  • dryness of mucous membranes and skin
  • drop in libido
  • weight gain

Some women even suffer from a lack of energy that affects their professional life. According to a study by Deloitte, 1 in 10 women would leave the workforce because of symptoms due to menopause. This shows how important it is not to minimize the impact of it on women’s lives!

Homeopathy to help relieve the symptoms of menopause

Several homeopathic remedies can help soothe the unpleasant symptoms caused by menopause and help women get through this period with serenity. Marie-Lise Pelletier, homeopath, presents her favourite products. 

1. Zinc Nickel Cobalt: for the hormonal system

Our Zinc Nickel Cobalt from Oligocan helps balance the hormonal system and is recommended for both menopause and premenstrual syndrome. 

“This natural product acts directly on the hormonal system to help balance it. It’s effective for mood swings and lack of energy. It also helps to relieve the symptoms of menopause due to slow metabolism, such as weight gain and cellulite. It is suitable for a wide range of symptoms and it’s natural.” 

2. Menopause pellets: for all types of symptoms

Effective for all symptoms of menopause, our Menopause pellets are to be taken as needed, when symptoms are felt. “Take 3 granules as needed; no woman is the same, so it will depend on your symptoms. Some women have hot flashes in the morning, others at night. When symptoms get better, space out the pellets.”

3. Insomnia pellets: regain peaceful sleep

Menopause can affect sleep and our homeopathic Insomnia pellets can help counter lots of sleep disorders. “They are not addictive and help relieve the physical and mental restlessness, nervousness and anxiety caused by insomnia. We recommend taking 3 granules before bedtime and repeat as needed.”

4. Borage oil: to soothe dry mucous membranes

Borage oil is a vegetable oil rich in gamma-linolenic acid, ideal for dry to very dry and sensitive skin. It contains no additives or preservatives, and it helps to improve the suppleness of the skin through good hydration. 

“This oil is effective for vaginal itching and dryness and can be used daily as a hygiene oil. It is also  safe for intravaginal use.”

The suggested remedies can be taken in addition to conventional medical treatment. If in doubt, consult your doctor. Homeopathy does not replace treatment prescribed by a health professional.

Healthy lifestyle habits to reduce the intensity of symptoms

Certain lifestyle habits can influence the symptoms experienced during menopause. The sooner these habits are adopted, the better!

Here are some of them: 

    • Eat a diet low in saturated fat and high in fiber. Choose foods rich in calcium, vitamin D, magnesium, vitamin K and essential fatty acids, such as omega-3.
    • Limit the consumption of tea, coffee, alcohol and spicy foods, which can cause hot flashes. 
    • Exercise is good for the heart, joints and bones.
    • Developing a positive attitude has a real impact on everyday life. Relaxation, meditation, visualization and yoga are tools to achieve this.
    • Quit smoking.
    • Maintain an active sex life.

When it comes to menopause, the important thing is to continue talking about it; this helps break down taboos and demystify it. Continue to talk to health professionals, your loved ones, your friends and follow our advice to live through your menopause as serenely as possible!
