Menopause and hormone replacement therapy
The menopause is a period in women’s life when they lose the ability to reproduce and their ovaries stop producing estrogen. In general, it occurs between 45 and 55 years of age. The most usual treatment for menopausal symptoms nowadays is hormone replacement therapy, but in the past women didn’t have this kind of therapy at their disposal, so they relied on natural remedies in order to reduce the symptoms. According to some made studies, the hormone replacement therapy isn’t even the most effective solution against menopause – in fact, it is possible to increase the risk of several serious diseases and conditions including stroke, breast cancer and dementia as well.
