Please Note: Menopause is NOT a medical "condition" that needs "treatment." It is just a normal part of life like pregnancy or puberty. It is a time of life when your hormones - and your body's response to those hormones - can have unwanted or uncomfortable side effects and symptoms. It is those symptoms that may need treatment, especially if they interfere with your daily living.

There are many schools of thought on the best way to cope with these symptoms. If you are menopausal, you will likely need to sift through a lot of information to decide which approach, or combination of approaches, is right for you. One way to cope with the symptoms of menopause is with herbs.
