There are many uncomfortable things all women face as
they get older; perhaps the most uncomfortable is
menopause. Not only do women going through menopause
experience annoying and painful physical and emotional
symptoms, they’re also at a much higher risk of
developing dangerous problems such as osteoporosis and
If you’re going through this change, you’ve probably
seen a doctor and discussed medical treatments, but
before you start on hormone replacement therapy or other
drastic treatments, why not try a form of natural
menopause treatment. This way you can treat
menopause the natural way.
Here are 5 natural menopause treatment options that can
help you solve your menopause problems:
* Soy. Soy protein contains chemicals called
isoflavones, which act as a mild estrogen and can help
with hot flashes and night sweats. It may also help keep
your bones healthy. Just be sure not to take too much,
about 50 grams of soy protein per day is enough. Getting
more too much soy may actually be harmful.
* Black Cohosh. This supplement can be used to
alleviate hot flashes, help with mood changes, and even
help you sleep better. While it has been tested and
found to be safe, studies have only been conducted on a
6 month trial period.
* Red Clover. Taking this supplement daily has
been shown to not only decrease the number of hot
flashes (one study showed a 58% decrease!); it can also
help stop some of the long term health problems
associated with menopause. Red clover contains
isoflavones and may decrease loss of bone mass, improve
cardiovascular health, and may even protect you against
* St John’s Wort. Along with physical
symptoms, many menopausal women also experience symptoms
of depression. St Johns Wort can be taken up to two
years to help alleviate mild depression. Just don’t take
it if you’re already on an antidepressant because there
can be interactions.
* Vitamins and Minerals. You probably already
know that you should take a calcium supplement to help
decrease bone loss, but did you know you should also
take magnesium to help you absorb and use all that extra
calcium? You should also increase your intake of
Vitamins E and C to help with estrogen absorption. You
should be able to find a quality multivitamin for older
women that will give you these nutrients and more.
There are a few things you should be aware of when using
these or any other
natural menopause treatment. First is that you
should consult your doctor before you take anything.
Many people equate the word “natural” with “safe”, but
these remedies can have harmful drug interactions and
side effects. You should also take care to get a high
quality supplement. Check ingredients, look for seals
(and research what the seals mean), and ask around on
health websites or with a medical professional.
