Treating Menopause
Is menopause a natural stage of life or a health condition? Is this change something you simply have to "put up with"? Or can you actually treat it?

While menopause is inevitable, you can address the symptoms.

But when contemplating treatment, there are many options to consider. Should hormone replacement therapy be offered? If so, when and using what forms of hormones? Are bio-identicals preferred?

Nonprescription treatments such as edamame can also be very helpful.

Dr. Holly and Dr. Jacob Tietlbaum, MD, will look at similarities and differences between medical and naturopathic support for women during menopause.
