BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Many women seek natural menopause treatment products to help them manage bothersome menopause symptoms. Dr. Shoreh Ershadi discusses the effectiveness of natural menopause remedies in alleviating various menopause symptoms.
Mood swings, difficulty sleeping, hot flashes, irregular periods and painful breasts are some of the more common symptoms associated with menopause. Many women also experience muscle pain, foggy thinking, dry eyes, headaches, depression and other symptoms that are not just uncomfortable but also disruptive. Lifestyle changes may allow women to manage or reduce certain symptoms by eliminating triggers, but natural menopause cure products offer another approach that can help treat the root cause of these symptoms.
Pomegranate may be able to provide powerful menopause natural relief, according to numerous studies. In fact, there are no fewer than 40 active clinical trials using pomegranate to determine all the benefits of this super fruit. Pomegranate can support heart health, but it can also restore hormonal balance and help manage fluctuating hormones, which are largely responsible for the symptoms associated with menopause.
Black cohosh is another favorite menopause remedy. Black cohosh has been used for centuries to help women manage menstrual or menopause symptoms. Black cohosh, which is a member of the buttercup family, contains plant estrogens, and its effectiveness has been demonstrated in several clinical trials.
DON'T PAUSE may also be able to help through such ingredients as DHEA, chromium picolinate , green tea extract and pomegranate extract.
Not all supplements may be equally effective for all women in menopause. For example, women who produce equol, a specific type of estrogen, are more likely to benefit from the use of soy isoflavones as a natural menopause remedy. Soy isoflavones can significantly reduce these women's menopause symptoms while other women may enjoy fewer benefits.
Women who are experiencing menopause may also be able to manage their symptoms by identifying triggers. Spicy foods, alcohol and caffeine can trigger hot flashes, night sweats and sleep disruptions. Improving habits by exercising more regularly, eating a healthier diet and maintaining regular sleeping hours can ease some symptoms and improve a woman's responsiveness to menopause supplements.
