Hormonal acne is distressing at the best of times, but when the outbreaks starts in your 30’s 40’s or 50’s it can be a real confidence blow. We can relate to acne being part of our awkward teen years but in later life, it can be very challenging to deal with and can cause great emotional upset and frustration.
While acne could be attributed to many factors such as stress, food sensitivities, gut health, pollution or medications, for many women it’s often related to a hormonal imbalance. The conventional medicine approach offers antibiotics or the contraceptive pill as a solution but once stopped the acne often returns. Sometimes more aggressively than before.
In this post, Joanne aged 41 years old kindly shares her experience of using homeopathy for hormonal acne and explains some other positive side effects she enjoyed too!
“After developing hormonal acne at age 41 I tried lots of creams prescribed by the doctor and changed my skincare regime but nothing worked. I didn’t want to use antibiotics which was the next step.
I had heard about homeopathy so armed with my laptop I scrolled through the internet looking for a homeopath. When I came across Eileen’s website it stood out for me so much, how vibrant and radiant Eileen looked and I loved her story.
I hadn’t been to a homeopath before and didn’t know what to expect. I thought I would be asked a few questions and given a remedy to try.
What I got was a world away from that! I got a session full of questions, followed by a lot of talking by me and a lot of listening from Eileen.
I remember thinking I hope Eileen remembers I came about my skin because I think I ended up talking about everything but that!
And so the journey began.
As my acne seemed to be hormonal related I signed up for the Happy Hormones Programme. This consisted of 6 sessions that treat you as a whole person taking into consideration your whole body as well as the specific concern which for me was acne.
By the 4th session, my skin had cleared up 70-80%.
By the end of the Happy Hormones Programme not only has my skin cleared up but I’m also reaping the benefits of balanced hormones. As a mother of young children, Eileen helped me see that it’s alright to take time for yourself and not to be so hard on yourself if everything is not 100% perfect.
After only 3 sessions I felt mentally and physically stronger in myself and in dealing with situations in the past that may have caused upset. This was an added bonus as this was not what I’d initially visited Eileen for.
It’s been a journey and I feel truly blessed to have started and will be continuing with Eileen and Homeopathy for a long time.”
