Natural HRT Alternatives - Herbal HRT for Menopause and Pre-Menopause

Natural HRT - What is it and how does it work?

Natural HRT is a plant-based method of naturally regulating hormones through the manipulation and utlization of natural plant derived compounds which act as hormonal regulators in a person's body.

Natural alternatives to HRT have become popular largely in part to the discovery that synthetic HRT can actually endanger a woman's health, and the hazards far outweigh any benefits. It was found that synthetic HRT may, in fact, increase the likelihood of the development of cancer, blood clots, stroke and heart attack.

The government also recently halted it's hormone replacement therapy studies, making natural HRT an even more desirable and safer alternative to conventional HRT.

What Do Women Have to Say About Natural HRT?

One woman suffering menopause symptoms too unbearable to live with (anxiety, hot flashes, moodiness, sleeplessness, and more), turned to an integrative medicine practitioner (similar to a naturopath, but also integrates modern medicine), for a bio-identical, natural hormone replacement therapy remedy.

The woman, now 55 years old, says it has made a "huge difference" in the severity and presence of her worst menopause symptoms.

Bioidentical hormones, or plant derived hormone-like

compounds, are popular HRT alternatives now, according to the North American Menopause Society, in addition to healthy diets, exercise, vitamins and calcium supplements.

Scientists have discovered that soy isoflavones function similarly to HRT without the risks associated with the controversial treatment. Soy isoflavones, especially in combination with other known menopause remedies like black cohosh, have been shown to alleviate fatigue, anxiety, hot flashes and night sweats, and they actually offer other health benefits as well. These additional health benefits are osteoporosis prevention and added bone health, lower LDL (bad cholesterol), and lower risk of blood clots and heart attack.

In addition, black cohosh has been used by women for centuries as a hormone regulator and as part of a "natural HRT" regimen in pre-menopausal and menopausal women.

Any way you look at it, there are distinct benefits and recognizable symptom relief in natural HRT alternatives. It would be wise to take advantage of these effective natural HRT alternatives.
