Women’s Health: Dysmenorrhea & Homeopathy

Do you suffer from painful periods? Popping ibuprofen, staying home from school or work, suffering from nausea, becoming permanently attached to your heating pad…we’ve all been there.

Dysmenorrhea is the medical diagnostic term for painful menstrual periods. Many women, younger and older, suffer from the occasional painful period.

Homeopathy Dysmenorrhea Pain Menstrual CycleWhen those are the exception, homeopathy is usually very helpful to offer immediate relief from that particular month’s symptoms.

However, when pain and discomfort are the rule, deeper homeopathic remedies may be necessary.

Chronic problems always take longer than acute problems to right themselves, because the body has many layers that contribute to the symptoms. Each layer must be addressed individually in order to allow for long-term, more permanent healing.

Homeopathy can address underlying hormonal imbalances, cleanse the remnants of hormone-influencing drugs that might have been taken previously, and effectively sort out the body’s natural signals that have become confused. When this happens, relief is typically permanent.

What about the person who says, “My mother had painful periods, as did my grandmother and her mother”?

Sequential homeopathy can even address an obvious inherited pattern like this.

Genetically, we are all unique. Homeopaths see this uniqueness as a tool of our trade. As we find the unique individual factors and consider genetic factors, the most effective remedy will become more easily discerned.

As the layers added from birth clear away, the door is opened for use of remedies that actually address the basic illnesses inherited from generations past, which may then finally eliminate the problem.

Homeopathic remedies are natural, chemically minute dilutions of various substances. They act on the body by subtly influencing the energetic message systems that govern the human body. In women, hormones are easily and mightily influenced by any number of seemingly small factors.

Homeopathy plays directly into that scenario, acting as a subtle, gentle influence that can actually spur the body to balance hormones on its own.

Instead of using a heavy-handed replacement therapy, homeopathy merely addresses the symptoms as they present themselves by matching a remedy to them and allowing the body’s natural system of checks and balances to take over.

The results can be subtle and steady or dramatic and sudden, depending upon how skillfully the practitioner reads the signals, as well as how many layers of previous treatments and medications have to be cleared away to see the real problems underlying it all.
