Chinese Medicine Is The Primary Option
As life expectancy continues to increase, women are expected to spend more and more of their life in post-menopausal years. Therefore, it is becoming increasingly important to ensure a smooth transition during the menopausal years.
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) was long considered the standard treatment for menopause and its related conditions. However, there is no longer a consensus as to when and how to use these drugs. While these drugs may alleviate hot flashes, they significantly increase the risk of breast cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, and have a number of significant side effects. For most physicians and patients, the risks are simply far greater than the potential benefits. The bottom line is – synthetic hormones can never replace endogenous hormones. Therefore, no matter how or when they are prescribed, the potential for adverse reactions is always present.
TCM offers a gentle yet effective way to address menopause and its related conditions. Chinese herbs have demonstrated, via numerous in vivo and in vitro studies, marked effects to alleviate hot flashes, vasomotor instability, loss of bone mass, and other conditions associated with menopause. Most importantly, they are much gentler and safer on the body.
Menopause is simply a transition in the journey of life. It is a not a disease, and therefore, should not be treated with synthetic drugs that pose significantly higher risks of cancer and other side effects. Herbs should be considered the primary option, and not the secondary alternative, as they are safe and natural, and more than sufficient to address almost all cases of menopause.
