Menopause - A New Beginning
Menopause needn't signal an end to your life. In some cultures menopause is seen as a time when older women can help support the younger women as they raise their children. The older women are revered for their wisdom and knowledge. Menopause is a time of freedom and renewal- if you have any children, they should be grown and you are free of the monthly hassle of menstruation.

Herbal Remedies For Menopause
There are many "herbal" products for sale that claim to help menopausal symptoms. These products are not regulated through the same government system as drugs, so there is little research to back up their claims. In addition, most have to be taken routinely, are not covered by insurance, and can become costly over time. Any herbal remedies for menopause should be thoroughly discussed with your health care provider. You should tell your provider if you are taking any other medications, since some of the herbal products can have harmful interactions with other drugs.
