Hormones

Hormones Play a Vital Role in Maintaining Balanced Health.

They can easily be thrown off-balance and can cause:

  • weight gain or weight gain

  • acne

  • fatigue

  • sweating

  • increased thirst

  • anxiety and depression

  • headaches

  • increased hunger

  • muscle weakness

  • muscle aches

  • decreased libido

  • dry skin

  • thinning of hair

  • irritability

  • infertility

  • constipation

If you suffer from any of the symptoms listed above, or you think your hormones are off-balance, then homeopathy is a gentle way to bring everything back into alignment.

What are the causes of hormone imbalance?

When you have a hormonal imbalance a gland is producing either too much or too little of a particular hormone.

Some common causes of hormonal imbalances include the use of medication, treatments for cancer (such as chemotherapy), stress, poor diet or eating disorders. Injury or trauma can also cause your hormones to lose balance, and in this, I include toxicity of the body.

When your hormones are imbalanced it can lead to a number of conditions, including diabetes, hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism, and Addison's Disease.

How can homeopathy help?

The endocrine system illustrates that everything is connected, and this is echoed in homeopathy's holistic view of health.

For example, imagine you have been feeling very anxious lately and have also had a bout of constipation. Conventional medicine will likely give you an anti-depressant for the anxiety and a laxative for the constipation. They are treated as two separate issues. The anti-depressant will supress the anxiety whilst you are taking it, but the depression will often return when you stop it. Anti-depressants are psychologically addictive and people often come to rely on them and struggle to stop taking them. The laxative will relive your constipation, but whatever caused the constipation in the first place has not been treated and is likely to continue.

Homeopathy, on the other hand, has specific remedies for people who have anxiety and constipation and will treat the common factor that is causing the disturbances. From the in-depth consultation, your homeopath might also identify other connected symptoms, for example, you may mention you've been feeling extremely hungry lately and you've been having some sleep problems. Your homeopath can prescribe a safe, non-addictive remedy with no side-effects, which will take all these symptoms into consideration, and you'll see improvement across different aspects of your health and wellbeing - because the remedy has stimulated your body to heal itself at the root cause, and get itself back into balance, rather than just masking the symptoms.
