Women present with all types of menstrual irregularities:
- Some can’t seem to stop bleeding; conversely some never bleed at all!
- Some women’s cycles start and stop all month long.
- Some cycles are too short, others too long.
- some have spotting, and some have clotting.
Whatever the case, naturopathic medicine offers answers and solutions to hormonal imbalances.
Unlike the birth control pill, which provides synthetic hormones to stop ovulation and create an artificial hormonal balance, natural medicine corrects the underlying imbalance. Birth control pills are fine for birth control but they should never be used to mask the symptoms of a hormonal problem. Additionally, long-term use of birth control pills causes ovarian failure and induces pre-mature menopause.
