Why Consider Alternatives?

The decision to use menopausal hormone therapy to relieve the symptoms of menopause is a very individual one. Both the patient and physician must take into account the inherent risks and benefits of hormonal therapy plus a woman’s medical history. Concerns of overall health risks associated with taking replacement hormones leads women to seek alternative remedies. It is important to note, that herbal remedies are not FDA approved, potency and ingredients vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and careful testing and proof of safety is not required.
