Dr. Hayhlee Clarence, Naturopathic Doctor
Menopause is a pretty prolonged state of time; women will enter into it, and maybe be a little bit pro-active about their symptoms at the beginning, hoping that in a year or two things will regulate.
For some women, those changes happen quickly, and for some women, those changes are quite a bit longer.
So in year 5 or year 7 of menopause, women are noticing they are still dealing night sweats, hot flashes, fatigue, memory changes, or mood changes; there are a lot of things that happen when your hormones shift.
Naturopathic Medicine has a nice way of helping to rebalance. Unlike more dramatic hormone therapies, a lot of what we do, especially with herbs, has a nice balancing effect.
We can help to regulate some of those changes and slow how quickly they are changing to help and slow the side effects.
For women, there is a lot of options with Naturopathic medicine; acupuncture has seen a lot of great results, especially for hot flashes, botanical medicine as I talked about, and diet can all make a great difference.
There is a lot of really great ways for women to support themselves, and figuring out what the right balance is based what their symptom is really the goal.

- Symptoms. Women experiencing the symptoms of menopause experience hot flashes but have cold hands and feet. They also notice changes in their
behavioursuch as becoming irritable.
- Home remedies. Because patients have
estrogendeficiency, a diet with phytoestrogens such as soy milk and flax seedis ideal. Aerobic exercises for at least thirty minutes three times a week help reduce hot flashes.
- Naturopathic treatment. Since hormone replacement therapy poses a lot of adverse effects
toa woman’s health, a naturopathic method is much safer. Women, even before experiencing menopause, should seek naturopathic care to relieve them of eventual symptoms.
