Guide to Natural Menopause
Are you in hormone hell? Fight back naturally
By 2015, almost half of all American women will be in menopause. Natural menopause is intended to be a gradual reduction of estrogen by the ovaries with few side effects. In a well-nourished, vibrant woman, the adrenals and other glands pick up the job of estrogen secretion to keep her active after menopause. While almost 90% of women experience some normal menopausal body changes and hormonal fluctuations, most only last a year or two and are not severe enough to interrupt their lives.
The Key To Surviving the Menopausal Transition
Did you know that your adrenal gland health is a key to surviving the menopausal transition? Depleted adrenals cannot help a woman achieve her new hormone balance after menopause. A natural adrenal support program can often minimize symptoms and help a woman feel more energized and with fewer disruptive symptoms like hot flashes.

What are Plant Hormones?
Plant hormones are remarkably similar to human hormones. They can be accepted by hormone receptor sites in our bodies, and, at only ¹⁄₄₀₀ to ¹⁄₁₀₀₀ the strength of human hormones, they are extremely gentle and safe, exerting a tonic effect.
Although used for centuries by both men and women, we are just beginning to understand their power. Studies on soy foods and herbs like ginseng, black cohosh and wild yam clearly show hormone-normalizing effects.
They can ease menopausal symptoms. Yet, they also do not appear to abnormally raise estrogen levels over the long term.
Research shows many plant estrogens, such as those from soybeans, can actually increase estrogen excretion in the urine.
