Many women reject the risks associated with hormone replacement therapy to treat menopausal symptoms, and instead seek relief from alternative sources. As menopausal women face fluctuating levels of estrogen and progesterone, the likely symptoms they experience are hot flashes, insomnia, depression, chest pain, and mood swings.

Natural solutions for menopause

Fortunately, there are a number of natural remedies available to help you cope. Just be sure to speak with a doctor before you start taking any alternative treatments independently. Here are three holistic methods for reducing menopausal discomfort:


Eat non-acidifying foods: raw fruits and vegetables, whole grains, good things . Acidic foods, fast foods, processed foods, white sugar, solid fats – usually the culprits in most other disease patterns  avoid them.

The dominance of estrogen is promoted by a lifelong diet of these common foods. Stress and nutritional deficiency deplete the adrenal glands , which deplete progesterone, which promotes estrogen imbalance, leading to menopausal symptoms.

Normally, estrogen only needs to pass through the body once and is then broken down in the liver. High fat content in the diet prevents estrogen from breaking down and allows estrogen to cycle a second time, promoting all of the aforementioned imbalances.


Raw foods, fruits, vegetables, contain moderate amounts of natural estrogens that sidestep the roller coaster imbalance that most women experience. If phytoestrogens are part of the lifestyle before menopause, there won’t be such a dramatic drop when the body begins to slow down in the demands of always preparing for reproduction.

In a study conducted in Paris in the 1990s, a physiologist significantly lowered estrogen levels in the sample group, simply by switching from a diet rich in fat and sugar , to a more natural diet of fruits and vegetables .

Phyto-estrogens also appear in a variety of herbs, including black cohosh, alfalfa, pomegranate, and licorice.

Natural progesterone

By now you should know that progesterone drops to zero at menopause. If estrogen levels have been high all the time, problems start to arise when the sister hormone progesterone is no longer there to keep things in balance.

In recent years, several doctors have found that natural progesterone cream can take over, both before menopause, in the case of women with more stress challenge, and after menopause, in the case of women less stressed because she has incorporated foods with natural phyto-estrogen into her lifestyle. Both can benefit from the influence of natural estrogen regulation in small doses of food bound. Physiological doses.

Dr. Lee has organized most of the pertinent information about the clinical effects of natural progesterone cream. Osteoporosis, heart disease, breast cancer, endometrial cancer, hot flashes, dryness, wrinkles on the skin are routinely avoided completely by daily use of this simple natural lotion.

Menopause should not be understood as a disease

Deceived and misinformed by the forces of big business, women are far from a rational view of menopause, in tune with nature’s intentions.

Incessant publicity and mental conditioning has been successfully programmed into the hard drive of the public regarding menopause as a disease that absolutely requires treatment, even in the absence of symptoms. This perspective is market making and is not even supported by the most conservative and credible medical authorities.

“Menopause is a natural rite of passage, and should not be understood as a disease.” – Betty Kamen, PhD THS

“Menopause is not a disease. It is a natural biological process that has gone wrong in some women, due to less than optimal environment. “
