Menopause is a natural part of ageing that usually occurs as a woman's ostestrogen levels decline between the ages of 45 - 55. During this time periods become less frequent until they will eventually stop completely, and a woman will no longer be able to become pregnant naturally. Most women will experience a variety of different menopausal symptoms, which may include night sweats & hot flushes, issues with Memory, a reduced sex drive, Anxiety or a Low Mood.
These days, more and more women are seeking alternative treatments to antidepressants and hormone replacement therapy (HRT), and at Natures Healthbox, we have a wide selection of natural remedies that may help women through this 'climacteric' time of life. For example, Black Cohosh is among the most popular natural hot flush remedies, while St. John's Wort has long been used for the treatement of menopausal mood swings. Evening Primrose Oil is well known for its breast pain relieving properties and Peruvian Maca has enough Vitamins, Minerals and essential Amino Acids to enhance hormone production. Energizing Ginseng is thought to be beneficial for the menopausal symptoms of Fatigue, while Vitamin D should be seriously considered for hormone balance because this vitamin siginificantly decreases as women age.
