Hormone Replacement Therapy HRT Risks

Perimenopause - the transition period before menopause brings with it unpleasant symptons such as hot flashes, irritability, mood swings, depression, mental fogginess, insomnia as well as physical pain such as joint aches, headaches. These are primarily caused by disruption of adequate female hormone production of estrogen and progesterone. Synthetic estrogen and progesterone combinations are prescribed as Hormone Replacement Therapy to combat these symptoms.

However synthetic HRT is not without its risks. The risk of heart disease, invasive breast cancer, ovarian cancer, strokes and blood clots significantly go up. In fact a study involving over 16,000 women sponsored by the National Institutes of Health was stopped after 5 years when it was found that the risks of Hormone Replacement Therapy to the women in the study, far outweighed the benefits of the study.

Menosan from Himalaya Herbals is a natural herbal ayurvedic formulation that is an excellent Menosan herbal alternative to HRTalternative to synthetic HRT. It is composed of ayurvedic herbs such as Ashoka tree, Shatavari, Country Mallow, licorice and others designed to help not only with the symptoms of menopause but also to provide hormonal balance and nourishment to the female organs.
