Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Maybe you're not comfortable taking the traditional prescription HRT's (hormone replacement therapy). Maybe you're not able to because of a medical condition. Natural remedies for menopause are preferred by many women because of their gentleness. In this article I'll discuss the most popular remedies and their usefulness in relieving the common symptoms of menopause.

Herbs The most annoying symptom of menopause is the dreaded hot flashes. Soy will reduce hot flashes and night sweats and can be taken in the forms of tofu, tempeh, green soy beans (edamame) and roasted soy nuts. Black cohosh is also very effective and found in many over-the-counter menopause medications. Dong Quai, also known as "female gingseng" has been used for centuries. It can help correct not only hot flashes and sleeplessness, but can reduce osteoporosis among other symptoms. Other herbs frequently used as natural remedies for menopause include gingseng, evening primrose oil, vitamin e and licorice!

Natural Progesterone Cream Many women have found natural progesterone cream to be very effective in reducing the side effects of menopause. It's applied to the skin and then absorbed into the body. It's been found to reduce hot flashes, night sweats and irritability. It's also helpful in reversing osteoporosis! Natural progesterone is derived from plants. This can be purchased in the form of a 2% skin cream. However, progesterone is also available in oil or capsule form.

Exercise All "cardio" exercises such as walking, biking, aerobics etc. will help not only to reduce your stress levels but also help reverse the weight gain during menopause. Yoga can be used for relief of hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and depression. Some yoga studios now offer special classes for women over 50!.

Diet The best diet for women undergoing menopause will be a nutrient rich diet including whole grain products, fresh vegetables and fruit. Especially important is a diet rich in vitamin C and carotene to prevent bone loss. The right diet, like exercise, can also help with weight loss during menopause.

All of the above are considered natural remedies for menopause. As far as the herbs and progesterone cream, "one size does not fit all". You may have better results with some than others (or a combination). See what works for you! Using natural "medication" combined with the right diet and exercise will help relieve the symptoms of menopause, help you feel better, be healthy and lose weight. Find out more about natural remedies for menopause symptoms and information about the right diet and exercise.
