Some herbal remedies may increase your levels of estrogen and help to soothe some of the symptoms of menopause. When considering any alternative medicines or herbal remedies, it is important to remember that these options are not medically sound. That means that they haven’t been tested, no health benefits are proven and the FDA does not approve herbal supplements before they are put on the market. Be careful when trying herbal supplements, make sure the type you try has been around a while, and research other side effects and possible risk factors. Ask you provider for advice regarding the use of complimentary and alternative medications, and if you are already taking some of these remedies, make sure he or she knows what you are talking. They can interact with other medications.
