Points to Consider Regarding Natural Menopause Relief

Postmenopausal women should consult their healthcare provider about their personal risks and benefits of using HRT, as well as the use of alternative therapies. Certain lifestyle changes, such as quitting smoking, eating well, and exercising regularly, can also offer benefits, and should be considered for promoting healthy aging and reducing the risk of heart disease.
Natural menopause treatments may or may not be helpful in relieving menopausal symptoms. More research is needed to identify the benefits and risks.
People should always talk to their healthcare provider when considering herbal remedies and dietary supplements. Herbal therapies may have adverse side effects or cause harmful interactions with other medications. Also, the cost of alternative therapies -- such as dietary supplements -- is usually not covered by insurance.
