Homeopathy to up the mood during the transition

Homeopathy to up the mood during the transition




The menopause is not only a change occurring in the physical body, it commonly also has an altering effect on the emotions of the woman transitioning. The disequilibrium of the hormones, the fluctuation between dominance and deficiency, can cause upheaval and havoc resulting in mood swings and not seldom in extremes that mount in depression or melancholy.
