Menopause Relief - Natural Alternative to HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy)

Menopause Relief - Symptoms taken seriously

Menopause Relief photoProfessor Henry Burger, a consultant endocrinologist at the Melbourne Jean Hailes Clinic for Women's Health, was interviewed by the Sydney Morning Herald (15th March 2012) and said that Menopause was not a trivial condition. ''At least 10 per cent of women will have symptoms for 10 years or more and they're very disabling. It's a huge threat to women's quality of life. One of the major problems is interrupted sleep, which makes people tired and irritable and depressed. People with bad flushes get them every half an hour.''

HRT Drugs on the decline for Menopause Relief

The article went on to say that most HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) is used by women in their 50’s but due to the publicised side effects, particularly in relation to future breast cancer and heart problems, many women are choosing to opt out. The result is that many of the drug companies manufacturing these medications have decided to cease producing them.  This has left many women looking for more natural alternatives to make menopause relief easier.

Natural Solutions to Relieve Menopause Symptoms

Although the health warnings have now been revised, the fact remains that artificial hormones may not be your preferred choice when it comes to looking for something to relieve your symptoms during menopause. So the time is right to find a better way of alleviating the hot flushes, sleeplessness etc., by using alternative therapies.

What are the alternatives to HRT?

Nutrition can play an important part by making sure that your body has all the nutrients it needs at this special time. Ensuring that you have a healthy balanced diet with plenty of good fats (including saturated fats) and supplements like evening primrose oil is really important for the production of hormones. Although nutrition is vitally important to your health in every way - espeiclally for menopause relief, there are additional therapies that can help.

Traditional Chinese Medicine provides solutions for Menopause Relief

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has a strong reputation to bring menopause relief. TCM includes Acupuncture, which is highly beneficial for every aspect of your health and wellbeing, including Menopause symptoms. TCM looks at these unwanted symptoms as a decline in your Kidney energy and so unlike western medicine, which seeks to directly replace hormones with artificial ones, TCM uses Chinese herbs to help your body make the hormones it needs. In times gone by, Chinese herbal formulations came in a packet of dried pieces of plant material, which needed to be added to water and boiled for hours to extract their vital therapeutic properties. These days that hard work has already been done and the resulting extract, dried and made into easy to swallow tablets. As well as being a more natural solution the price of these formulations compares very favourably with HRT. Specially formulated according to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) to support women’s health throughout menopause, including premenopausal, perimenopausal and postmenopausal phases. Fusion Health Menopause Free
