Many Kinds Of Menopause Support
There can be so many options when it comes to menopause support that it can be overwhelming. Over the counter herbal supplements are very popular due to phytoestrogens found in many of them which are estrogen-like plant compounds found in plants or herbs also known as plant based menopause relief.
…I have tried several natural products, including Black Cohash, soy based supplements, etc., and have spent more money down the drain than I would care to mention. Any how your product seems to be actually working. Believe me, I’ll be the first to let you know if it stops working or if I am forced to take a higher dose. Debbie S – Chicago, IL
Women can be found discussing and sharing their experiences of the complex issue and their concerns in menopause support groups, networks, forums, chat rooms, meetings, Friends, and family. Some have turned to other kinds of treatment such as hypnosis, biofeedback, massage, acupuncture, hypnosis or aromatherapy, physical exercise, stress reduction and relaxation, meditation and yoga, a healthy diet, and healthy lifestyle changes. Some experts recommend a homeopathic diet that is rich in foods that promote estrogen levels (for example tofu, soy, lentils, miso, apples, alfalfa, cherries, potatoes, rice, kidney beans, wheat and yams), but how much do you have to eat and what if you don't even like most of those foods? Although results can be greatly mixed and differ from woman to woman all of these treatments can have some merit.
Still, a majority of women pref fer herbal supplements as the other forms of menopause support require either a greater time or cost commitment. Women are trying different menopause treatments and combinations of them and they are getting mixed results.
Some women even quit smoking to try and reduce their hot flashes. The list goes on and on from simple home remedies like vitamin b (which boost the nervous system), valerian root, black cohosh, St. John's wort, omega-3 fatty acids, sage leave (for memory loss and concentration), liquids, powders, and teas, to more expensive or potentially harmful solutions like hormone replacement therapy (or hrt), testosterone, natural hormones, progestin, dhea supplements, creams, bioidentical hormones, progesterone. How can anyone make an informed decision with so many options and opinions available?
There are several menopause support supplements on the market but what is in them? Yams, Soy, Wheat, Black Cohash, or a secret ingredient? Is there a "special mixture" that works better than a single ingredient? Why not just focus on the ingredient that works?
Recent studies at the Mayo Clinic have proved that the phytoestogens found in flax seed another kind of menopause support can diminish or totally thwart hot flashes and night sweats problems.
More recently, a concentrated form of the flax seed phytoneutrient, called “flax-hull lignans”, have been found to produce 7 to 10 times the menopause symptom stopping power of whole ground flax seed!
