What Plant Helps With Menopause?

Menopause is a natural occurrence that affects all women. It can bring on uncomfortable symptoms such as hot flashes, irritability, mood swings, and sleep disturbances. While the traditional approach to treating these symptoms has been hormone replacement therapy (HRT), more and more women are turning to natural remedies to alleviate the discomfort of menopause.

Herbal Remedies

Herbal supplements have been used for centuries to help manage the symptoms of menopause. Some herbs may even be helpful in reducing hot flashes, although they do not replace hormones. Here are some plants that can help with menopause:

  • Red Clover: Red clover is believed to have estrogen-like effects, which may reduce hot flashes and other menopausal discomforts. Studies have found it to be effective in relieving hot flashes among postmenopausal women. A 2012 study published in Maturitas indicated that red clover could improve sleep quality among postmenopausal women over a 12-week period.
  • Chasteberry: Chasteberry has long been used to treat menstrual irregularities and balance out hormones during menopause. Studies have found it to be effective in relieving breast pain, irregular periods, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) symptoms, hot flashes, night sweats and other menopausal discomforts. It may also help reduce fatigue associated with menopause by balancing out hormones.
  • Dong Quai: Dong quai can be helpful for easing many of the physical symptoms associated with menopause such as hot flashes, night sweats and insomnia. It works by promoting blood circulation throughout the body and helping support hormonal balance during the transition into menopause. Research has shown that it can significantly reduce mild headaches experienced by women transitioning into menopause.

Other Remedies

In addition to herbal remedies there are other ways you can manage your symptoms during menopause including diet modification, exercise and lifestyle changes such as getting adequate rest/sleep each night and managing stress levels effectively through relaxation techniques like yoga or meditation.
