Menopause is a difficult period that all women face after reaching a certain age. In physical terms, menopause is the end of the period in which the woman has reproductive ability.
According to current medical knowledge, menopause is a natural process that can not be avoided and which is not treated as a disease by doctors. Therefore, it is believed that menopause does not need to be treated. However, there are many natural remedies that help ease the onerous symptoms of menopause.
Herbs and dietary supplements during menopause.
The rhizome of the plant called Black Cohosh (Actaea racemosa) has been used in traditional medicine for the treatment of menstrual disorders and menstrual pain for many hundreds of years. There are also indications that beneficial effects of extracts in this plant are used to relieve the symptoms of menopause, including hot flushes and nocturnal offspring. Benefits may also include improving sleep quality and reducing the hormonal imbalance associated with diabetes or myomas. Black cohosh root contains many valuable substances, including: polyphenols, alkaloids, estrogenic substances, resins, salicylic acid and isoflavones.
Natural progesterone in the form of a cream is a gentle and effective way to reduce the symptoms of menopause (loss of bone density, dryness of the vagina, myomas). The cream should be applied topically to the skin of the forearms, 2-3 times a day. This method of application is safe and makes it possible to control the amount of progesterone delivered with each use. Progesterone cream is also beneficial for younger women (perimenopausal period), because it reduces the risk of infertility, endometriosis and PMS.
St. John’s wort has been used for thousands of years to reduce anxiety, depression and sleep-related problems. They can also be used during menopause to help stabilize the mood, reduce inflammation and improve the quality of sleep.
The fruit of another herb with the Latin name Vitex agnus-castus has proven healing properties that are used in the treatment of ailments affecting women. The fruits of this plant contain substances that help stabilize the level of women’s hormones, which bring significant benefits in relieving the symptoms of menopause.
