menopause treatment LondonMenopause Treatment London: A Natural Alternative to HRT

Menopause Treatment London: We provide a safe, natural alternative to HRT. Natural treatment to support a woman through the menopause. Each prescription is formulated to meet each patient’s unique needs. Natural Medicine has become a popular, safe and effective alternative for women with debilitating menopausal symptoms, particularly in the light of the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI) study of 2002, which suggested that health risks may exceed benefits during prolonged hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

The effect of the initial publications of the WHI resulted in a decline in HRT use of around 50% in the UK. Recent research funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the USA, one of the world’s foremost medical research centres, states that “the study of alternative therapies for menopause symptoms is a rewarding and important area deserving of further inquiry”. The NHS is also listing several medicinal plants in their leaflet on alternative therapies for the treatment of menopausal symptoms.

We have successfully treated many women, who come to our clinic for help in alleviating uncomfortable and debilitating menopausal symptoms. In most cases it is easy to get significant results in a relatively short period of time. Most patients are feeling considerably better by the time of their first follow-up consultation, which is usually four weeks after the initial consultation.

“I am normally very calm and positive but the menopause made me feel like a different person. At times I felt unhinged and struggled with like both at work and at home. I wanted to avoid HRT. Having read that natural medicine can help, I made an appointment. I can’t believe how much better I feel!” – Fiona, Hampstead.

Our natural menopause treatment London clinic can alleviate hot flushes and night sweats. We also address, where necessary, any anxiety, stress or depression that may be present. Patients feel the benefit of this, reporting that they feel more like their old self. The natural treatment supports the body, while the transition (menopause) takes place. Patients are gradually taken off the natural medication, once the body has settled into menopause and there are no longer any unpleasant symptoms. The time factor is different for each woman as we are all unique.
