ALTERNATIVE TREATMENTS FOR MENOPAUSE

There are a wide range of supplements available which purport to help with menopausal symptoms although not all have adequate research and evidence to back up these claims. It is very much a personal choice along with some trial and error to establish what can help but it’s vital to take advice from a doctor or pharmacist before taking any medication or supplement to establish if there are any contraindications based on your medications or medical history.

Red Clover

This has four oestrogenic isoflavones (a form of dietary oestrogen) and often comes in tablet form under the trade name Promensil. For women who cannot take HRT this is an alternative remedy to improve night sweats and hot flushes.

An omega-6 essential fatty acid. This should not be taken by anyone on blood thinning medication (including aspirin).
