There are twice as many medical visits in the United States by women than men.
- There is a 2 to 1 incidence of anxiety and depression in women as opposed to men
- Twice as many women suffer from migraine headaches as men
- There are 5 times as many women with fibromylgia as men
- Girls enter into puberty about 1 to 2 years earlier than boys
- Women reach the end of their reproductive phase 1 to 2 decades earlier than men.
These statistics point to the idea that women in general have a more sensitive and interconnected physiology and psychology, a fact that has frequently been overlooked by the medical establishment. Homeopathy recognizes and respects the unique psychological and physiological makeup of a woman, which is quite distinct from that of a man.
Today’s woman must fulfill multiple rolls as wife, mother, housekeeper, caretaker, and career woman. The need to meet the constant demands placed on women can result in disruption of the natural hormonal cycles leading to:
- menstrual irregularities
- abnormal bleeding
- premenstrual syndrome
- cyclical migraine headaches
- anxiety and depression
- adrenal fatigue
- thyroid disorder
- abnormal weight gain
Daily stresses and a lack of adequate quiet time, further compound the problems for most women. Dr Ikenze has successfully treated the above disorders in women using a “total person” oriented approach of homeopathy in conjunction with nutitional and lifestyle counseling. The key to restoring total health is to restore the integrity of the hormonal system, the immune system and the entire metabolism, through the use of a single homeopathic medicine chosen specifically for the individual woman.
As women approach menopause , hormonal and physiologic changes combine with midlife issues of aging to compound the stresses that most women already experience. If you are entering or already in menopause, this a critical time to explore integrative homeopathic measures that will ensure a smooth transition for you and prevent or treat problems such as:
- hot flashes
- loss of muscle mass
- increased fat accumulation
- bone loss
- foggy brain
- loss of libido
- sluggish metabolism
Menopause has until recently been perceived and treated as a disease condition by the medical establishment with a cookie cutter approach of hormone replacement and antidepressants as the universal cure. But women are still experiencing problems even with hormone replacement. The homeopathic approach sees menopause as a natural transition and encourages the body to restore balance within itself in each and every organ and organ system, in such a way that the organ systems can work harmoniously as a whole, while clarity and balance are also restored mentally and emotionally, without the use of numerous expensive supplements and prescriptions.
