Can Pomegranate Be Used For Treating Menopause Symptoms Powered By Docstoc
					Once a woman enters into menopause they are hit with a variety of
symptoms. When a woman's menstrual cycle changes, her hormone levels also
change. This change in hormones can cause many symptoms such as hot
flashes, mood swings, irritability, headaches, night sweats, anxiety,
depression, fatigue, weight gain or weight loss, breast pain and sleep
disorders. The way that doctors have primarily handled patients who have
exhibited these common signs of menopause is to start a regimen of
hormone replacement therapy.       The medications that the doctors
prescribe work because they replace the hormones that women's bodies are
no longer making as they enter menopause. Hormone replacement therapy has
many positive effects. Studies show that the hormone replacement prevents
osteoporosis, and can decrease the risk of colon cancer. Despite these
positive effects, hormone replacement therapy drugs have been proven to
place women at a higher risk of heart disease, breast cancer, stroke and
blood clots. As a result of these health risks many women are seeking
alternative forms of hormone treatment and pomegranates seem to be an
effective treatment of menopause symptoms.

  Pomegranate seeds contain estradoil, estrone and estriol, which are
phytoestrogens. The plant estrogen simulates human estrogen and is
similar in molecular make-up. The seeds of the pomegranate are extracted
and squeezed to produce the plant-based estrogen. The pomegranate is one
of the few fruits in the world that has had over $20,000,000 invested in
medical research to document the medical benefits of the pomegranate.
More and more women are asking their physicians about this form of
treatment because studies have shown that the pomegranate extract can
provide the positive effects of hormones without any of the associated
health risks. If this sounds interesting to you, discuss it with your
doctor. If your doctor won't consider alternative forms of treating
menopause symptoms then you owe it to yourself to find a physician who
will. Alternative medicine has made great strides over the past twenty
years and you should be an active participant in determining your
treatment.      Discover what helps with your menapause symptoms. Visit now
