With more and women and doctors choosing not to use HRT because of health and safety concerns, what alternatives are there that are safe and time proven?
Chinese medicine has always stated that it is normal for the menstrual cycle to cease at around age 49, but it is not normal for women to experience debilitating symptoms like heat flashes, depression, mood swings, insomnia and dryness.
