Women going through menopause experience fluctuating levels of progesterone and estrogen, which can bring about hot flashes, breast pain, insomnia, depression, and mood swings. While there are prescription medications that may provide relief, many women opt for home remedies. Aerobic exercise and yoga helps stop weight gain caused by menopause and decreases irritability. Black cohosh can offer relief from hot flashes while Vitamin D promotes hormone balance and bone renewal. St. John’s wort is a popular menopause home remedy. Also, Ginseng helps relieve anxiety, fatigue, and stress caused by menopause. If you decide to try supplements or herbs, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider first.
