Homeopathy for Women

Urinary tract infections (UTIs)

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the second most common type of infection in the body, and women are especially susceptible. A UTI can occur when bacteria (normally E.coli from the colon) gets into the urethra.  The bacteria can also infect the bladder causing a bladder infection.

Symptoms of a UTI include frequent urging to urinate and pain during urination.  As many women have experienced, the treatment of UTIs with antibiotics often leads to the development of vaginal thrush. Homeopathy offers an effective way of treating acute UTIs.  Acute treatment can then be followed with constitutional treatment to prevent future recurrence of infections.

PMS and Menstrual Disorders

PMS (Pre-menstrual Syndrome) is a very common syndrome affecting an estimated 4 out of 10 women. Symptoms can occur up to 2 weeks before the period and can include irritability, mood swings, bloating, breast tenderness, fatigue, poor libido, abdominal pain and food cravings. Homeopathic remedies are used to balance the hormonal system thereby alleviating the symptoms of PMS.  Other menstrual disorders such as dysmenorrhoea (painful periods), menorrhagia (heavy periods) and irregular menstrual cycles are also treated at the clinic.

Menopause

Menopause is a natural process whereby there is a gradual cessation of the menstrual cycle. However some women experience distressing symptoms at this time.  Symptoms may include hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, depression, disturbed sleeping patterns, urinary incontinence and vaginal dryness.  Homeopathic treatment is effective at supporting both your physical and emotional health at this time.  Treatment also includes a tissue salt programme to strengthen bone density.

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety disorders are the most prevalent of the mental/emotional disorders. They are two to three times more frequent in women than in men. Anxiety is characterized by worry, doubt and painful awareness that one is powerless to control situations. Physical symptoms may also be experienced such as; excessive sweating, trembling, dizziness, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, diarrhoea, insomnia, fatigue and restlessness. There are different types of anxiety disorders ranging from Generalised Anxiety Disorder to Panic Attacks and OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).  As homeopathy treats the whole person (physically, mentally and emotionally) it is particularly effective at treating disorders of this nature.
