VIEWS: 57 PAGES: 2

If you want relief from your symptoms of menopause, but don’t want to risk your health with a dangerous treatment, what should you do? As you probably have heard, hormone replacement therapy has been linked with certain cancers, heart problems, strokes, and other health problems. In fact in a study made by the Women's Health Initiative, women who took a mix of estrogen and progesterone hormones were 71% more likely to contract lung cancer than those who were taking a placebo.

									If you want relief from your symptoms of menopause, but don’t want to
risk your health with a dangerous treatment, what should you do? As
you probably have heard, hormone replacement therapy has been linked
with certain cancers, heart problems, strokes, and other health
problems. In fact in a study made by the Women's Health Initiative,
women who took a mix of estrogen and progesterone hormones were
71% more likely to contract lung cancer than those who were taking a
placebo.

       Of course there are reasons why some women will opt for the
HRT route, due to much more severe symptoms than normal from
menopause. Their hormones put them through hell every day, and can
threaten bones with osteoporosis, or suffer extended heavy bleeding due
to periods that are out of control. However for most women this therapy
isn’t really necessary, since a normal range of symptoms such as hot
flashes, night sweats, depression, moodiness, etc. can be dealt with
using milder therapies such as herbal remedies.

      There is one case when if a woman has had a hysterectomy, she
may be a prime candidate for estrogen-only therapy, which has shown
to cause cancer of the uterus. However if her uterus has already been
removed this is certainly not a threat. If she smokes cigarettes and has
any history of blood clots, then this will not be a therapy to use since it
has shown to possibly cause blood clots. Too high-risk for most
women, but only you can make that decision.

       With all of the risks that these hormones seem to have, what
other alternatives are there? Many women are finding relief with
alternatives such as: progesterone hormone cream, which can relieve
symptoms such as hot flashes and night sweats, and many herbs which
have varying rates of success for relief of the symptoms.

      Herbs such as black cohosh for hot flashes have been used for
many hundreds of years before the advent of modern medicine, as other
herbal remedies. There is also motherwort, Asian ginseng, licorice root,
lavender, kava, red clover, and ginkgo – used to tackle a host of other
symptoms in menopausal women. Most of these herbs are what is
known as “phytoestrogens” – or plants that act as a natural source of
estrogen once converted by the body. Some can be used by themselves,
and others even in conjunction with standard medicines depending on
the usage. You should of course tell your doctor if you are taking any of
these herbs, because some may interfere with the pharmaceutical
medicines that you may already be taking.

There are many symptoms of menopause and also many cures for
these symptoms. Learn as much as you can about them, and you can
take positive steps to find relief for yourself.
