Plant-based menopause treatments

When ovaries stop producing eggs and the menstrual cycle ends, the menopause begins, and the body has to get used to hormonal changes in oestrogen and progesterone levels. The menopause can cause a myriad of symptoms that are typically treated with hormone replacement therapies, but, recently, increasing numbers of women are turning to natural menopause treatments for relief.

Treatment options:

The menopause is a natural biological event that is inevitable for anyone with a womb, and so there is no cure or prevention. There are a number of conventional medications that are typically prescribed to help manage the symptoms of menopause; however, like every form of treatment - they are not appropriate or successful for everyone.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)



Oestrogen Treatments

A word from our specialist

“The growing awareness that female physiological differences can lead to the misdiagnosis of conditions, highlights the need for clinical approaches that better account for these variations. Other conditions such as endometriosis can take up to seven years to be diagnosed, all the while the patient is passed from pillar to post and started on a plethora of medication in the hope that distress is alleviated. Experience now tells us that medical cannabis is a particularly effective treatment for menstrual-related pain conditions.“

Can natural menopause treatments help relieve symptoms?

Some of the chemicals contained in natural, plant-based menopause treatments have the ability to interact with our bodies' endocannabinoid system (ECS) when they enter the body, and are able to influence the messages it typically sends. During the menopause, changes in hormonal production affect the endocannabinoid system’s ability to function properly, and adequately regulate sleep, mood, temperature, memory, and pain - amongst other things. 

But now, evidence demonstrates that certain plant-based alternative treatments have the ability to alter these ECS messages, and they can therefore (when applied appropriately) improve sleep quality, and reduce anxiety, stress levels, and pain, making them a powerful tool in menopause management. 

Surveys of women who have used plant-based treatments for menopause symptom relief display positive results, particularly in the sleep and anxiety department, but also in the frequency of self reported night sweats, vaginal dryness, and level of enjoyment during sex. 

Our specialist doctors can legally prescribe alternative menopause treatments to those who have been struggling to manage their symptoms with conventional medicines and therapies. To find out if plant based therapies may be able to give you the relief you need, assess your eligibility here.
