Menopause treatment and alternative solutions for menopause relief.
Allopathic medicine is what we think of as regular medical treatment that's provided by a medical doctor that holds a M.D. degree.
Complementary or alternative therapies aren't specifically proven, but can often provide great relief. Alternative medicine includes all nonallopathic therapies, such as homeopathy, acupuncture, and herbs.
Women are more often these days turning to herbs for menopause treatment. Herbal medicine is the tradition by which much of pharmacology was originally based.
Herbs are available in different forms.
A tincture is an alcohol extract of a herb. For example, one might take an ounce of St. John's wort blossoms and pour over them an ounce or two of pure grain alcohol and let the mixture sit for about six weeks. Tinctures are the most potent forms of herbal medicine. However, they don't taste very good.
A tea is made by pouring very hot water over leaves, twigs, roots, or fruits of a plant. Very occasionally a tea can be made by boiling the dried herb in the water. Sage tea is an example of a tea that's boiled to evaporate the toxic chemicals.
An infusion is made by steeping fresh herb in cold or hot liquid. When you make sun tea, you are making an infusion.
Allopathic, Complementary, Herbal, and Homeopathic Therapeutics
Remember that anything that is potent enough to have significant beneficial effect may also have potent side effects. Make every effort to educate yourself, and inform all health care providers about all the medications you're taking. Herbs for menopause can be very valuable, but be sure to treat them with respect.
Homeopathy is an approach to treatment that is no longer taught in medical schools or used in US hospitals. In the US today there is a revival of interest in homeopathy, and many lay practitioners practice homeopathy.
