In the 21st Century we’ve gone from a time in a woman’s life that barely got press, to a topic of hourly Instagram posts, prime time TV focus & interviews at a Government policy level.
Our now massively compromised endocrine (hormonal) systems are shouting out for solutions.
There are over 34 symptoms now associated with menopause from aches & anxieties to vaginal dryness.
The conventional option is still only HRT and there is massive confusion amongst women and health professionals about its impact. For instance GP’s aren’t trained to differentiate between depression and the mental & emotional symptoms that we are now seeing associated with menopause.
As homeopaths we too need to catch up and understand when we are seeing signs of hormonal change indicating peri-menopause in ever younger women as well as supporting women through menopause itself and beyond.
Caroline spoke recently at Megs Menopause Conference alongside the top menopause consultants in the UK.
She introduced topics such her take on 20Th Century toxicity and the 3 most relevant supplemental supports for women at this time of life as well as homeopathy, flower essences and complementary therapies as choices.
Caroline has worked as a Natural Health Practitioner & Homeopath with people from all walks of life for over 20 years.
“I’m into empowering my clients to understand their body's responses to the world around them and to grow through the healing journey”.
She originally studied Fine Art Textiles at Goldsmiths & ran her own print studio until she had children in the early 90’s.
As her children grew, she re-connected with her spiritual path of observing nature & natural health and studied at the College of Practical Homeopathy, the Hahnemann Academy, North America & the Eden Permaculture Project.
She added Flower Essence prescribing and Alchemy Energetics to her skills & uses the permaculture principles to create sustainable systems for clients & small businesses.
She has supervised and lectured extensively in natural health and is a leader in her field, focusing on menopause and hormonal changes.
