Many women have been seeking a more natural way to deal with menopause in recent times. This is because standard menopause treatments have side effects, i. e. hormone replacement therapy may increase the risk of cancer. Obviously the side effect mentioned is worrying, and some women will not want to take the risk, in this article we discuss foods that provide natural help with menopause.

If you are looking for natural help with menopause then you may end up using natural substances such as herbs and nutrients that help to relieve the symptoms of menopause that all women dread.
Outlined below are some natural substances you can use that help to relieve the symptoms of menopause:

Dong Quai - This is used to deal with pms, and many symptoms of menopause including hot flashes and vaginal dryness. It is probably best known for its ability to regulate the female reproductive system.

Black Cohosh - This herb is an excellent natural remedy for relieving the symptoms of menopause, particularly night sweats and hot flashes. It helps with menopause naturally and has no negative side effects.

Red Clover - This herb is believed to have a positive effect on the symptoms of menopause, it contains phytoestrogens which are believed to mimic the effects of estrogen in the body. This makes it a brilliant natural help with menopause.

Soy- Soy is another substance that contains phytoestrogens, this gives soy the ability to reduce the symptoms of menopause, the uncomfortable hot flashes.

Chastberry - This is another great herb that is great for natural help with menopause, it works by balancing the hormones during menopause, as a result of this it can provide relief against some of the symptoms.

Maca Root - Maca root is very nutritious and has been labeled as a superfood. It contains vitamins and minerals as well as nutrients and proteins, as you can see consuming Maca root can only be beneficial to the body.

During menopause a woman's hormones become unstable causing various symptoms such as chronic fatigue, vaginal dryness and mood swings amongst others. Maca root is believed to relieve these symptoms by correcting the hormone imbalance.

Maca root is also believed to reduce fatigue and the symptoms of PMS, increase libido, increase stamina, increase energy levels and endurance.

As you can see there are several substances that give natural help with menopause, they are all safe so you may consider trying some to see which ones work best. A word of warning though, if you decide to buy herbs, make sure you buy them from a reputable seller, Unfortunately there are many rogue traders out there who sell dodgy herbal products. You can normally tell when a herbal product is dodgy, because they tend not to have labels on them. All reputable sellers label their products. When taking any form of herbal product make sure you don't exceed the stated dose, which will be on the label. And finally before taking any herbal products it is advisable that you speak to your doctor.
