Manage the menopause naturally without HRT

This article helps you identify some simple changes you can make almost immediately which will help you manage the menopause naturally. Hot flushes and night sweats are common symptoms. Eighty percent of menopausal women experience them. Many women feel embarrassed about hot flushes, but it’s not as obvious to everyone else as it may seem to you! Symptoms can be reduced by eating lots of plant foods, especially those rich in phytoestrogens, which help to rebalance your hormones naturally. Phytoestrogens are found in abundance in soya products, legumes, and in brassica vegetables, such as cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage. They are also found in walnuts, berries, whole-grains, lentils, linseed, sesame seeds, yams, beans, rice, alfalfa, and fruits. Patrick Holford and Kate Neil, in their book, Balancing Hormones Naturally, say “Soya products and tofu are both excellent sources of isoflavones, which are powerful phytoestrogens”. They suggest consuming 5mg a day, “equivalent to 350ml of soya milk or a 350g serving of tofu”. Beneficial herbs that may help to balance hormones include agnus castus, ginseng, black cohosh, wild yam, dong quai, and liquorice root. Brittle bone disease becomes more common after menopause, so taking supplements designed for healthy bones can help reduce your risk of osteoporosis at this time of life. Magnesium, calcium, boron, and vitamin D are great nutrients for healthy bones. NHS guidelines suggest eatin...

CONCLUSIONS: The intention and motivation to alcohol dependence treatment seem to be high at the beginning of the treatment, but recognition of the alcohol problems were low in highly dependent patients. Marital status was connected with an increased active component for readiness to change. The passive component (decreasing the ambivalence) was observed in the unmarried patients.

Authors: Pietrogrande L, Raimondo E Abstract Abaloparatide is a synthetic 34-amino acid peptide analogue of the 1-34 portion of the human parathyroid hormone-related protein (PTHrP). It has been approved in the U.S. for the treatment of postmenopausal women with osteoporosis at a high risk for fracture. Abaloparatide is an anabolic agent and it seems to have a potent anabolic activity with reduced effects on bone resorption. It reduces the risk of vertebral and nonvertebral fractures, major osteoporotic fractures and clinical fractures, with a significant improvement in bone mineral density at femoral neck, total h...

A new study confirms something we here at have been emphasizing for many years: Health news stories often overstate the evidence from a new study, inaccurately claiming that one thing causes another — as in drinking alcohol might help you live longer, facial exercises may keep your cheeks perky, and that diet soda might be a direct line to dementia. The researchers looked at the 50 “most-shared academic articles and media articles covering them” in 2015, according to data from the NewsWhip database. Seven of the 50 studies were randomi...

BOSTON (CBS) — Enjoying a cocktail from time to time may be good for your health. A new study finds that light drinkers have the lowest combined risk of developing cancer and dying prematurely. Light drinking is considered one to three drinks a week. Researchers looked at almost 100,000 adults and found that drinking less than 1 drink a day was associated with the lowest risk of death, even compared to those who don’t drink at all. The study can’t prove that light drinking prevents cancer or prolongs life. Perhaps light-drinkers are more likely to engage in other healthy behaviors than heavier drinkers. B...
