Menopause and HRT

Welcome to Menopause and Hormone Replacement Therapy Home in Holisticonline.com!

Menopause Infocenter

Menopause is the ending of a woman's monthly menstrual periods and ovulation. It also signals other changes to the body and mind, brought on in part because the body begins producing smaller amounts of the hormones estrogen and progesterone (among others). The menopausal period is different for each individual woman. Menopause typically occurs between the ages of 45 and 55.

Menopause is not a disease. It is a natural process in a woman's life. How a woman views this time of her life can have a lot to do with how frequent and severe her symptoms are. If menopause is viewed as the end of youth and sexuality, this time will be much more difficult than if it is viewed as the next, natural phase of life. With a proper diet, nutritional supplements, and exercise, most of the unpleasant side effects of menopause can be minimized, if not eliminated.

Although menopause is one of the greatest physical milestones in a woman's life, many women lack concrete information about what is taking place and what are their options. Here is all the information you need to make an intelligent decision.
