Herbal Menopause Treatment for Symptom Relief

If you are considering herbal menopause treatment for your menopause symptoms, educate yourself on the benefits and risks. There are a lot of products on the market that emphasize how valuable they are in relieving some of the symptoms you may be experiencing. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Some women have responded well, so check out what herbal menopause treatment might work for you and don’t forget to read the label.

Herbs or vitamins for menopause should be used in combination with a well-balanced diet and exercise plan. Don’t expect a vitamin or herbal treatment to cure your symptoms if you don’t do anything else to improve your quality of life.

Isoflavones are found in plants and have an estrogen-like effect on the body. They can be found in soy and red clover. Soy can be found in many different food products and supplements while red clover is found in tea, capsules, powders and liquids. These are most commonly recommended for PMS and menopause.

Other remedies for hot flashes, night sweats, and menopause mood swings include black cohosh, sarsaparilla, evening primrose oil and chaste tree berry. All of these herbal menopause treatments are commonly found in health food stores. Some women try these before resorting to HRT(hormone replacement therapy). Before taking any of these remedies, it’s a good idea to speak with your doctor, especially if you are on any other type of medication.
