Please help, horrible symptoms....Perimenopause

Hello: I have been suffering from symptoms for about 6 years now. I have tried everything and nothing works, doctors don't seem to know what to do besides hormone therapy, and I don't want that. My symptoms are anxiety, nausea, irritability, weight gain, headaches, dizziness from time to time, scant and irregular periods, weepiness, joint pain, bloating, etc. Please let me know if there is something you can recommend. Thanks!

take PULSATILLA 200C every 4 to 6 hours till you have the symptoms.

take it for 2 to 3 days maximum.

during subsequent episodes, you can take again for some days.

finally, you can also take 2 doses of PULSATILLA 1M at 15 minutes interval on one day morning.

this will give you a long lasting relief from your symptoms.

Ok, I don't understand. Take it every 4-6 hours until I am sick? (you say 'till you have the symptoms), do you mean until they go away?

Then you say 'at 15 minutes interval on one day morning'. Do you mean take it one day a week for every 15 minutes just in the morning? Please explain a little clearer so I can understand. Thanks!

Also, which Pulsatilla...the Nigricans or Nuttaliana?
beautyqueen last decade
take PULSATILLA PRATENSIS 200C every 4 to 6 hours. if you feel ok, stop the remedy.

once you are ok and dont want the symptoms to come back, take PULSATILLA 1M single dose on any one morning and then another single dose after 15 minutes on the same morning.

thats all.
