(NaturalNews) It's been a long, bewildering decade for menopausal women. First, hormone replacement therapy (HRT) was presented as the miracle cure for the difficult symptoms associated with menopause: hot flashes, night sweats, lapses in concentration or memory, vaginal dryness, thinning hair, skin changes, moodiness, etc. For years women flocked to HRT for relief from these symptoms, and in many cases the treatments worked in the short run.

In the latter 1990's a number of studies yielded controversial results: not only is HRT unhelpful in the long run, but prolonged exposure to estrogens can cause cancer. Estrogen overload has also been linked to heart disease and stroke, as well as a number of other health problems.

In July 2002, the Institute of Medicine conducted a study that proved two popular synthetic estrogens (given to women at the onset of menopause) increased the risk of breast and ovarian cancer, strokes, pulmonary clots and heart attacks. Worse, the combination of these two popular drugs actually delays the detection of breast cancer by decreasing mammogram sensitivity. So, not only are these synthetic replacements causing cancer, they have made it more difficult to detect.

Hormone replacement therapy has been giving way to bio-identical HRT and natural herbal supplementation over the last ten years or so. The fact is, many women are still not aware that there are alternatives to the more synthetic and problematic sources of HRT.

Who wants to take the risk of conventional HRT?

No one wants to - but many women feel they must. Many women who have used this form of hormone replacement therapy stopped for a period of time, and yet a quarter of them resumed synthetic HRT to relieve the drenching hot flashes, disabling fatigue, disturbed sleep, depression and other menopausal symptoms. What this means is that women are turning to or returning to HRT, despite the risks. Why? Because no one has pointed out or shown them any other alternatives.

"Breast cancer now strikes 1 woman in 8, up from 1 woman in 30 in 1960 before estrogen therapy was popularized." Dr. Michael Lam, M.D.

Take a natural approach to menopause

It's true: you can treat menopause symptoms naturally. Menopause is a natural part of life. It isn't a disease or an ailment. Balancing symptoms is possible when working with a natural health practitioner who has experience in this area. Negative symptoms and suffering do not have to be a part of menopause! It is a woman's birthright to feel good, and the time frame around the age of 50 can be the best time of life.
