I am 40 years old and just realizing that I'm experiencing perimenopause symptoms of mood swings, low libido and chronic yeast infections (which my western doc attributed to perimenopause). I have had no, zip, zilch success treating the yeast with western drugs and have had amazing success treating it with suggestions from a naturopathic do. I am wondering if anyone has had success with naturopathic medicine vs western treatments for other perimenopause symptoms and what the options are from naturopaths. Do they really work? Is it healthier?
