Has menopause left you feeling very untrusting of your body?
The symptoms! Oh the symptoms! Over 48 of them now last time I looked.
But what are all these symptoms telling us?
That our body is breaking? That our body failing? That we are degenerating?
I have to say, I'm a little more optimistic than that.
What if these symptoms were actually a result of the body trying to heal itself?
If we thought about it that way, how differently might we treat our entire menopausal transition?
My guest today is Sarah Davison, a homeopath specialising in menopause.
In this conversation we talk about...
The two aspects of yourself that need to be included if deep healing is to take place.
An explanation of how homeopathy works that you'll actually get.
The big energy issue that many menopausal women face.
What exactly can homeopathy treat.
The surprising ways you might experience change with homeopathy.
Why homeopathy is...
If you're anything like me, you've purchased hundreds of aromatherapy oils in the past with the full intention of using them in your baths, in diffusers and in your massage oils, only to then wonder 'are they really working?' Promptly abandoning them only to repeat the cycle a year later.
My guest today is listed as one of America's most influential aromatherapists. She's also the New York State representative for the Alliance of International Aromatherapists, so she knows a thing or two about the contents of these mysterious little bottles.
In our long awaited conversation we spoke about:
What makes an essential oil so powerful.
How smells affects the nervous system.
The properties of essential oils.
How essential oils actually affect our bodies.
How to really work with and appreciate essential oils.
Aromatherapy post hysterectomy.
Aromatherapy for symptoms management during menopause.
