Natural Help for Menopause Symptoms

Natural Help for Menopause Symptoms

For many women the thought of dealing with menopause symptomsas they age brings about a high level of anxiety. Not only is menopause the first real sign for a women that she is getting older, but it can be a time of hot flushes, or sometimes referred to as hot flashes, periods of intense sweating and mood swings as her hormones undergo major changes. During the course of menopause a woman’s natural hormone levels will drop significantly causing several physical and emotional symptoms that can sometimes feel overwhelming.

Major Menopause Symptoms

While menopause symptoms tend to vary from one woman to the next, there are several that every woman seems to endure albeit at different levels of intensity. Of all the different symptoms, the most common one associated with the drops in estrogen levels are hot flushes (these are also called hot flashes), night and day sweats, major changes in menstrual cycles and definite mood swings and mental irregularities. It is not uncommon for a woman to start experiencing panic attacks as she progresses through menopause.

Easing through Menopause Naturally

Menopause is a natural part of the aging process, however this does not mean that you should have to be miserable and suffer the menopause symptoms that can make life for you and those around you miserable. You can of course talk to your family doctor and explain to him that you are having problems with hot flushes, breast tenderness and mood swings along with any of the other symptoms you may be suffering from. For the most part there is not much that he can do beyond antidepressants to help with the mood swings that may make you gain weight and perhaps a hormone replacement therapy which is a very controversial treatment. It is possible to have a slight increased risk of breast or uterine cancer, heart attack or stroke in some women with hormone replacement therapy.


If you want real relief, you need to look into a natural herbal supplement that has been scientifically designed to help you cope with the major menopause symptoms. In most cases you will find that the natural cures and supplements that are becoming more available are being found to provide the kind of relief that the doctors and the pharmaceutical companies simply cannot offer you. Often, if you do a little research you will find that some of the best herbal supplements are those that come from Chinese herbal medicine.

It never ceases to amaze me how similar the underlying principle of modern western medicine is to traditional Chinese medicine, with only sometimes the perspective or terminology being the only different factor According to ancient Chinese herbal medicine principles, as a woman gets older and reaches menopause, there is an imbalance of yin and yang, which parallels the modern scientific view of the imbalance between estrogen and progesterone. Yin is the feminine, youthful, nutritive, fluid substance where yang is the masculine, forceful, energetic principle. The sympathetic nervous system would be yang, while the parasympathetic nervous system would be yin. It is generally viewed that this sudden drop in estrogen is what causes hot flashes or hot flushes, which in ancient Chinese herbal medicine; they called this a sudden drop in the yin, where the yang rises to the head. They would then use yin promoting herbs and herbs to bring the yang down to help the woman during menopause. In addition, there would be added herbs to calm the patient, and promote a feeling of well-being. Most importantly, herbs work with your own body’s healing ability, rather than shock the body into an unnatural state like many pharmaceuticals do, yet still obtain excellent results.

These natural menopause supplements are derived from formulas that have been in use for thousands of years with great success in treating menopause symptoms. The initial reaction to many of these traditional herbal treatments has for years been treated by both the medical and the scientific community with skepticism. In recent years though, thorough scientific research has proven time and again that many of these traditional natural remedies do exactly what they claim to be able to do.
