Menopause and Naturopathic Medicine

Menopause and Naturopathic Medicine

Menopause is a significant time of change in every woman’s life. While menopause is a normal, natural process, it is often associated with mental and physical symptoms that range from being uncomfortable to debilitating. Symptoms sometimes associated with menopause may include hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, irritability, anxiety, depression, skin dryness, decreased libido, mood swings, sleep disturbance, hair loss, fatigue, nausea, joint pain and heart palpitations.

Naturopathic treatment is tailored to each patient’s specific needs and involves balancing the hormones through diet, herbal therapies and stress reduction techniques. In treating these and other hormone imbalances, naturopaths may make use of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) using hormones derived from plant sources. Bio-identical hormones are biochemically identical to those produced naturally by a woman’s body. They can circumvent the negative side effects many women experience from synthetic hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

Naturopathic medicine provides natural solutions to women’s menopausal problems and provides guidelines that will enable women to not just survive menopause, but to thrive through and beyond it.
