Health Q & A’s

Question: Both my friend and I are going through menopause, although she seems to be having a much harder time than me. While I’m only getting occasional hot flashes and have gained a little bit of weight, she wakes up every night due to terrible sweating, and I’ve noticed that this has made her very irritable indeed. Her doctor put her on a course of hormone Replacement Treatments, but she’s worried about the long term health risks. We were both considering taking Promensil but would it be safe for her to stop taking HRT altogether?


Answer: The makers of Promensil, which is a natural herbal solution to menopause symptoms, suggest that anyone currently taking HRT can switch gradually to their product, but this should be done under doctor’s supervision. In fact, before taking any kind of menopausal relief, it is always recommended that one sees a healthcare professional first.

This particular brand of meds works to help relieve the most common symptoms of menopause, a natural process usually affecting women between the ages of 35-45 years. Most will experience hot flashes, weight gain, night sweats, anxiety and vaginal dryness and rather than taking hormone replacements, which may have risky side effects, many women are turning to natural alternatives. One way to reduce symptoms is through the use of phytoestrogens, which are plant estrogens that can be found in the Red Clover blossom. This flower provides four types of isoflavones that help balance the hormones in the body, much in the way that synthetic estrogens do, but much more safely.

While this is good news for menopausal women, it should be noted that plant estrogens, because they are weaker than synthetic, will take longer to have an effect on the system, and it may take some months before a significant improvement is seen.

With the vast array of menopausal symptom relief products available today, many are quite effective in reducing those symptoms that plague women. It is important to use these products according to all the guidelines that come with the product in order to achieve maximum results. If you do shop for a menopausal symptom relief product in a health store, pharmacy or on the internet, you’ll often find many products do not contain the quality and/or quantity of necessary ingredients to effectively minimize menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings or weight gain. You should research your product of choice prior to purchase to find the best, most potent brand for your needs.

Natural treatment options can provide options for menopausal women so they can reduce menopausal symptoms such as weight gain, hot flashes/flushes, night sweats, decreased libido and mood swings. Finding the right product can be a difficult process considering the vast array of products and ingredients available. A quality menopause relief product should contain clinically proven ingredients that will help reduce menopausal weight gain and symptoms like hot flashes, hot flushes and night sweats, decreased libido while promoting hormonal balance. Below you'll find some of the most effective products that will help you resume living your life instead of merely enduring it.

Tips on Entering Smoothly into Menopause

  • Exercise regularly. It raises the metabolism, helps with depression and anxiety and controls weight. Any weight bearing exercise will help to maintain a healthy bone calcium content and reduce the risk of osteoporosis
  • Eat a diet that is rich in vegetables, fruits and essential fatty acids. Cold water fish, including salmon, mackerel, sardines, tuna and herring, are all good sources. Essential fatty acids help to support the nervous system which may be important for memory and brain function. Additionally they act as anti-inflammatories and maintain healthy skin. Try to include soy in the diet too as it supports estrogen regulation in the system.
  • Nuts and seeds should be added to the diet as a good source of fiber, protein and fatty acids. Flax seeds in particular are an important source of healthy anti-inflammatory fats that also regulate estrogen
  • Avoid high levels of sugar, alcohol, caffeine and over-processed foods. Quitting smoking will help reduce hot flashes and night sweats
  • Balance in the body helps to keep it healthy. Make sure to nurture your mind to keep it quick, your body to maintain physical well-being and your spiritual and emotional life to remain positive and healthy
