Menopausal hormone therapy use is associated with higher odds of high blood pressure, according to research. Longer hormone use was associated with further increased odds of high blood pressure, although this association decreased with subjects’ ages.
The authors of the study, led by Joanne Lind of the University of Western Sydney, included 43,405 postmenopausal women in their study to identify the association.
As Dr. Lind explains, the study shows that “longer use of menopausal hormone therapy is associated with having high blood pressure. It is therefore important that high blood pressure be conveyed as a health risk for women considering using menopausal hormone therapy.”
The results of the study may be taken into account when women are deciding whether, and for how long, menopausal hormone therapy is right for them.
Before deciding to start HRT, one can opt for homeopathy.
Homeopathy offers a wider range of options than Conventional medicine. Constitutional Homeopathic treatment with the management of an experienced and professional Homeopath is an excellent choice for menopausal symptoms.
Homeopathy is reassuring and helpful for both physical and emotional aspects of menopause, and most women, in addition to relief from their discomforts, experience an enhancement in self-awareness and well being after the treatment.
Thus you can rely on Homeopathy to achieve optimal health during menopause and into the later years of your life.
Homeopathic remedies for symptoms of menopause
Homeopathic remedies are prescribed by symptoms rather than conditions, as each case of a particular illness can manifest differently in different people. However, to mention about best homeopathic medicines for menopause, I would say following homeopathic medicines are generally indicated in different women as per their symptoms:
Folliculinum, Aconitum, Amylenum nitrosum, Argentum nitricum, Aurum metallicum, Belladonna, Bryonia, Calcarea carbonica, Cimicifugia racemosa, Graphites, Ignatia, Kali bromatum, Kali carbonicum, Kreosotum, Lachesis, Lycopodium, Natrum muriaticum, Nux vomica, Phosphorus, Psorinum, Pulsatilla, Sepia, Staphysagria, Sulphur, etc. etc.
Enjoy your life with no HRT.
