Beat your Climacteric Blues with Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Menopause

Homeopathic Remedies for MenopauseMenopause is a natural biological event faced by women that leads to the permanent end of menses. It is the final result of a gradual decline in the functioning of the ovaries. As women reach menopause, their periods become irregular and scanty, until they permanently cease. In some cases, there are no periods for one month or many months altogether, then appear again until they cease permanently while in others, the periods cease suddenly. After one year of no menstruation, a woman is said to have gone through menopause. Menopause usually occurs between the ages of 45 yrs and 52 yrs, although in some it may start as early as the late thirties and early forties. The symptoms of menopause are many, and most women go through a body and mind-altering period during menopause.

Homeopathic Treatment

The use of hormones for treating menopause has always been questioned, so the need for a completely harmless treatment becomes stronger than ever. Talking about safety, homeopathy provides natural ways to treat menopause and is completely safe with zero side effects. Natural homeopathic medicines are of great help in dealing with various symptoms experienced by women during menopause. Homeopathic remedies offer a completely safe treatment for the various symptoms of menopause.

Top Homeopathic Remedies For Menopause

The top homeopathic medicines for menopause include Sepia, Lachesis, Amylenum Nitrosum, Graphites, Ignatia, Sabina and Calcarea Carb.

1. Sepia – Top Homeopathic Remedy For Menopausal Complaints

There are many natural homeopathic remedies to consider, but Sepia tops them all when it comes to the treatment of symptoms associated with menopause. This medicine proves highly effective in managing numerous complaints related to menopause. Firstly, Sepia is extremely helpful to manage heat flashes during menopause. It is beneficial when women suffer from intense hot flashes with fainting spells. The whole body gets drenched with sweat. Secondly, Sepia is recommended for managing vaginal dryness, decreased libido (sexual desire), painful intercourse. Along with this females needing Sepia may feel a dragging or bearing down sensation in the uterus, feeling as if she has to cross her legs to hold it in. Sepia is well-indicated to manage weight gain (obesity) during menopause. It is also beneficial to manage hair loss and headache during menopause. Further, it aids help in managing heavy vaginal bleeding (flooding) during menopause. For women requiring Sepia, a change in temperament requires a special mention. From being calm and gentle before menopause, she gets irritated at the slightest cause, shows indifferent behaviour towards family. She is less caring towards her children or her husband whom she used to love a lot earlier. The feeling of sadness, with no desire to meet friends and no interest in daily activities, makes her feel worse. She feels easily tired.

When and How to use Sepia?

Sepia is the most commonly used homeopathic medicine to manage menopausal complaints. Sepia can work wonders, making the women’s transition through menopause a comfortable one and bringing back the vivacious woman in her. It can be used in both low and high potencies among which the most preferred is 30 C potency. Sepia 30 C can be taken once or twice a day depending on the symptoms severity.

2. Lachesis – To Manage Heat Flashes And Depression

One of the main symptoms that may cause great discomfort during menopause is heat flashes – it is a feeling of extreme heat, mostly in the upper parts of the body, accompanied by drenching sweat. Lachesis is a useful remedy (other than Sepia) for extreme heat flashes during menopause. The woman requiring Lachesis cannot bear tight clothing mainly around neck or waist. The next sphere where Lachesis works wonders is depression during menopause. Here, it is indicated when there is an aversion to social interaction. There is desire to run away from the world. There occurs aversion to do any work, lack of interest in daily routine work is common.

When and How to use Lachesis?

This medicine is a great choice of medicine to manage hot flashes when tight clothing is unbearable, especially around neck and waist. It is equally good for managing depression during menopause. This medicine is mostly recommended in 30C potency. This medicine is not usually repeated often and is given once or twice a week in most of the cases. Do not use it too frequently as it is a strong medicine.

3. Amylenum Nitrosum – For Managing Hot Flashes And Headache

Amylenum Nitrosum is also recommended for managing hot flashes in women in menopausal stage. Its use is mainly considered when heat flashes are accompanied by anxiety and palpitations of heart. After heat flashes, excessive sweating follows. There is a desire for fresh open air. The bed coverings are always unbearable from excessive heat. Next Amylenum Nitrosum can also relieve headache during menopause with marked congestion in head. In cases needing it, there is a sensation that the head would burst due to pain and congestion.

When and How to use Amylenum Nitrosum?

This medicine can be used to manage heat flashes when accompanied by anxiety and palpitations of heart. It can be given in cases of headache during menopause. This medicine can be used in 30 C potency once a day.

4. Graphites – For Obesity During Menopause

Graphites is another useful medicine for menopausal suffering. It mainly helps in controlling obesity (weight gain) during menopause. It suits women having a marked sensitivity to cold air. One feels sad and cannot take decisions easily.  They may begin to weep easily even on listening to music.

During bleeding, there is pain in the uterus. Pain from sacrum (a triangular bone at base of spine) to pubis (area in front of pelvis) is a key symptom attending it.

When and How to use Sabina?

Sabina can be given for controlling excessive bleeding or flooding during menopause.  This medicine can be taken in 30C potency – two to three times a day as per severity of complaint.

6. Ignatia To Manage Depression During Menopause

In a few women, symptoms of clinical depression — excessive weeping, sadness, feeling of loneliness, sleeplessness and reduced social interaction — are seen during menopause. Natural homeopathic medicine Ignatia is a good choice for coping with depression during menopause other than Sepia and Lachesis. It can be used in all cases where a woman feels sad all the time with no desire to talk to others. She may sit alone and continue weeping for long. She cuts herself off from society and does not wish to talk to anybody. She wants to be left alone all the time. Homeopathic medicine Ignatia can also best control mood changes during menopause. The woman needing Ignatia has sudden changes in her mood. The mood shifts rapidly from happiness to sadness without any apparent cause.

When and How to use Ignatia?

Ignatia should be used in cases of depression and mood swings. Ignatia is a natural homeopathic medicine for coping with depression and mood swings during menopause. Here, natural homeopathic remedy Ignatia definitely helps in providing mental stability. Though Ignatia can be used in different potencies (like 30C, 200C, 1M) but it is best to begin with 30C potency. It can be taken twice a day in 30C potency. Do not use high potencies without doctor’s advice.

7. Calcarea Carb To Manage Osteoporosis

One of the main effects of menopause is osteoporosis. It refers to the progressive loss and weakening of bones. Bone mass loss averages 1-2 per cent every year after menopause and results in easy fractures and other symptoms related with osteoporosis such as backache and pain in bones. Natural homeopathic medicine Calcarea Carb is the top remedy for women who are suffering from osteoporosis and helps in managing bone pain. It helps in decreasing the loss of calcium from bones and also increasing its absorption from food.

When and How to use Calcarea Carb?

This medicine can be used in cases where the pain in bones occurs as a result of osteoporosis. Calcarea Carb can be used in 30C potency once a day.


1. Menopause occurs naturally when there is a decline in hormones estrogen and progesterone in a woman around her 40s. As the hormones decline, active ovarian follicles get lost and release of eggs stop and no periods occur.

2. Surgical removal of ovaries may also result in menopause all of sudden. The symptoms that occur are severe because the hormonal changes here took suddenly and not gradually as in natural menopause.

3. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy to ovaries can cause menopause.

4. Sometimes there may occur premature menopause in around 1% of females when ovaries fais to produce hormones adequately.

    Hi, I am 51 and am now in menopause. Been a hear and a half size my last period. Don’t eat ant sugars, a don’t have any caffine, limit the amount of carbs, exercise daily..cardio and/or weight resistance, drink plenty of water. Always been slim but gained 2 dress sizes since menopause and not able to shift it. Also hot flushes about 4 times a day and 3 time nightly. Heat from the back of my waist and neck rising to my face and profuse sweating from face and head. It’s like someone has tuned on the seat warmer in my body and it is very uncomfortable. Not had a decent nights sleep for over a year now. Tried pine bark, Maca root, grape extract, vitamin D but nothing has helped with the weight and flushes. Pine bark helped with the energy levels. Would sepia help?
