Medical reports have challenged popular beliefs regarding the safety of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) for menopausal women. You may be one of the millions of women searching for safe, natural alternatives.
Menopause from A. Vogel provides a clinically substantiated potency of the traditional women's herbal product, medicinal sage. This time-tested key ingredient has a mild estrogenic action and is a safe, natural HRT alternative for addressing the discomforts accompanying menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats and irritability.
Menopause and perimenopause: By definition, a woman reaches menopause when she has not had her period for at least 12 consecutive months, but the process leading up to menopause can last many years. The two- to seven-year period that precedes menopause is called perimenopause. On average, women reach menopause at the age of 51. The number of menopausal women is on the rise. It is estimated that by the year 2026, 7.9 million Canadian women will be over the age of 50. Changes in the body during menopause are caused primarily by a gradual decrease in the production of estrogen and progesterone hormones.
The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC) now recommends that women not use hormonal therapy if they have no, or only a few, menopausal symptoms, which is the case for 70% to 80% of Canadian women in menopause or perimenopause. For many gynaecologists, this is a step forward since alternative and complementary medicines now offer viable approaches that they can discuss with their patients.
