Nature’s solution

A.Vogel’s Menstruation Formula: This excellent homeopathic remedy is effective for maintaining hormonal balance, thereby alleviating the above symptoms. Important ingredients are Pulsatilla; useful for correcting hormonal balance – regulating the period – with a wonderfully calming effect. Hydrastis is an effective ingredient for alleviating vaginal discharges. Menstruation Formula effectively ensures that the female organs are functioning optimally. 

Does it really work?

*Clinical studies to test the efficacy of Menstruation Formula have demonstrated a marked alleviation of symptoms associated with painful menstruation and premenstrual syndrome. This was experienced in 97% of a group of 76 patients after a period of four months. While results were observed relatively soon, the trial revealed that these improvements are amplified the longer the remedy is taken. Menstruation Formula was very well tolerated by 97% of the group. 

Some useful information

Feet and pelvic areas need to be kept warm. Sit in a warm bath to relieve discomfort from period pains and cramping. In addition to Menstruation Formula, keep some A.Vogel’s Petadolor handy, this is an effective remedy for the pains and cramps associated with menstruation. 

Did you know?

The thyroid gland is a regulator of many different bodily functions as well as emotions. An under-active thyroid often goes hand-in-hand with problematic menstrual flow. Regular use of A.Vogel’s Herbamare or Trocomare on food provides traces of kelp in the diet, which helps to regulate and stimulate the thyroid.  Running around with cold feet can cause menstrual problems. The period between the ages of 14 and 27 is vital for bone building and strengthening; avoid crash diets and poor eating habits, as these can lead to osteoporosis later in life. Crash diets often result in menstrual cycle problems. Avoid strenuous physical labour; women who engage in excessive strenuous exercise are often bereft of menstrual flow.

Summary

Menstruation is part of being a woman. It can either be a miserable experience or a relatively easy one. Make it easier for yourself! Eat regular nutritious meals and stay fit with mild exercise like walking or swimming. Use Menstruation Formula as well as Urticalcin; these will assist in developing strong bones and maintaining overall health. Remember to keep the feet and abdomen warm.

Menopausal Women

Do you suffer from?

  • Profuse bleeding?
  • Irregular periods?
  • Lack of libido?
  • Headaches?
  • Hot flushes?
  • Night sweats?
  • Mood swings?
  • Depression and anxiety?
  • Irritability?
  • Feelings of weakness?
  • Sleep disorders?
  • Palpitations? 

Nature’s solution
A.Vogel’s Menopause Formula is a comprehensive homeopathic remedy, which is very effective for reducing the symptoms associated with menopause: A.Vogel’s Urticalcin helps to normalise the pH in the body to its optimal, slightly alkaline level, by providing a biological calcium and by improving the ability of the body to absorb calcium from food. The health benefits of preventing acidification of the blood by calcium supplementation are far reaching, and for the menopausal women, include the prevention of osteoporosis. Healthy hair and nails are also important consequences of calcium sufficiency.  

Does it really work?
*A European clinical trial involving 52 menopausal women taking Menopause Formula for a period of three months, revealed that the remedy had an excellent effect in alleviating symptoms of menopause as described above. 51 out of 52 (98.1%) patients enjoyed a very positive response to the treatment, even as assessed by physicians. The tolerability of Menopause Formula was outstanding. The results also showed that continued use of this remedy over a period of three months brings about an ongoing reduction of symptoms. 

Some useful information
The first step for menopausal women is to realise that within nature, menopause is not regarded as an estrogen deficiency disease requiring hormone replacement therapy. Menopause is not an illness; it is a transformation period in a woman’s life.  

Did you know?
In a shock disclosure in 2002, a five year clinical trial study of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) of 16 000 menopausal women was discontinued in the face of emerging evidence of the possible dangerous long-term consequences of HRT; significantly breast cancer. Though this was not surprising when one considers that HRT interferes with a changing hormone balance that is all part of a completely natural process. 

Summary
Menopause is not a medical condition, but a period of transformation. Help yourself to make this as blissful a change as possible, and look forward to a time when life will be settled and easy. Many menstrual problems are the result of a cleansing process.. The uterus knows it must settle down, and the body uses menstrual flow as a cleansing process.  While good nutrition and taking care of yourself is of utmost importance, nature once again has remedies that can reduce some of the symptoms of menopause: Menopause Formula is an excellent answer to symptom relief, while Urticalcin effectively elevates blood calcium levels, thereby maintaining bone density. Every effort should be made to accept this new era with grace and trust in the knowledge that the menopause is absolutely necessary to ensure that vitality is sustained through to old age. By supporting this process naturally, you can look forward to a healthy and active life after menopause. For those who have had a hysterectomy, Menopause Formula and Urticalcin are also very effective remedies.
A note about female emotional problems 

It’s no secret that women in general are endowed with a gentler, more emotional nature, attributes that lend themselves to the finer qualities of sensitivity, empathy and intuition. Consequently, they often find themselves in the role of nurturer, care giver or peacemaker. It’s not uncommon for women to feel burdened by such roles, and they may need a nerve tonic along the way. Nature provides this through Hyperiforce, made from fresh shoots of St John’s Wort (one of the oldest medicinal plants). A wonderful nerve tonic, it strengthens the nervous system, alleviating anxiety, depression and restlessness. Hyperiforce is well suited to the female psyche.  

Does it really work?
* Clinical trials to measure the efficacy of Hyperiforce were conducted on 260 psychiatric patients around Europe. The study demonstrated a 50% average reduction in depressive symptoms for these patients, a result that was little changed by decreasing the dose to only 0.17 mg, and more favourable than other studies that used preparations of up to 2.7 mg. It is possible that this reflects the advantage of using only the fresh shoot tips of St John’s Wort. Hyperiforce was shown to have excellent tolerability.
