Herbs for Perimenopause and Menopause
Used for thousands of years by healing traditions around the world, herbs have been a staple of effective menopause treatment. They can be used to address both the symptoms and underlying cause. Safe, effective, and fast-acting, they provide an excellent alternative (or adjunct) to hormone replacement therapy.
Today’s modern lifestyles which include hectic work schedules, nutrient-depleted diets, and high levels of stress only serve to exacerbate the symptoms many women experience as their bodies transition through peri-menopause and menopause.
And while it’s true that herbs are readily available to those who seek them, there’s no substitute for the experience and knowledge of a seasoned practitioner who can advise you on which herbs are best for you.
