HRT Alternatives

Susanne’s blog

I originally set up Menopause Support to pass on information and experiences I gathered through my tricky menopause. If you want my ideas, tips and products to help you with your symptoms, or if you want to know more about the latest menopause research then read my blog. I?d love to hear your feedback so please post a comment at the bottom of the page!

Menopause Support Survey Results

2. June 2011 05:52

Over two-thirds of women suffer from hot flushes our recent survey results showed, and nearly a half (49%) want more information on HRT alternatives to help with their menopausal symptoms.  But even though hot flushes were the most common symptom, surprisingly nearly 60% of women complained that problems with the head, such as headaches, migraines, anxiety and confusion, were a symptom of their menopause too.  Our present free Top Tip download is 10 Ways to Improve your Headaches and Migraines. You can find this on the right hand side of the homepage. If you know of anyone who may also be suffering, then please share the link with them too.

 

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete our questionnaire.  We had a fantastic response and the results and your comments are very helpful and give us a good idea of what support you’re looking for through your menopause.  We will be making changes over the coming months but hope we will continue with this website as three-quarters of you use the internet to look up remedies and treatments for the symptoms of the menopause.  We’re also looking at writing a book based on the Menopause Support Programme as nearly half of you (49%) get your information from books.

 

We’ve drawn the winner from those that completed the survey and we are pleased to announce that Carol from Plymouth won our goodie box containing a mini Chillow Pillow, a cooling scarf, FEMA 45+ multivitamins, Pure Fish Oil capsules, Spiezia Facial Cleanser, a step counter, lemon Materia Aromatica aromatherapy oil, a selection of Pukka Teas, Walnut, Olive & White Chestnut Bach Flower Remedies, a Recovery Remedy, some Yes! Lubricants and a relaxing cd!

Barbara explains that her sex life suffered as she found vaginal dryness a real problem. “I found Omega 7 quite helpful, it lessened my dryness.”

 

We’re keeping these offers, and the very popular Menopause Supplement – Pure Fish Oil with a massive 360 mg of EPA each capsule, until the end of April.  So hurry up, start helping yourself with your menopause and order today!

Did you hear Woman?s Hour? – All about HRT

13. December 2010 09:13

We’ve just finished listening to BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour this morning here in the Menopause Support office. 

 

It was a well balanced programme as it looked at both HRT as a treatment option as well as the more natural approaches such as nutrition and acupuncture.  Several women rang in and said what had worked for them – many were lifestyle changes and complementary therapies.

 

But what came across loud and clear was that women want reliable, trustworthy information so that they can make their own decision on what to use to help them through their menopause.  They want support from other women and time to discuss different approaches so that they can decide what’s the right one for them. 

 

So that’s where we come in – here at Menopause Support you can get evidence based advice through the Menopause Support Programme.  Look at the advice section on our website www.menopausesupport.org.uk, download the free information, listen to a podcast or get the top tips.  Or if you want to hear from other women going through it go on the chat forum, a topic talk or come to a workshop.

 

We’re looking forward to hearing from you soon. To listen to the programme click on the audio link below. The Women’s hour program starts after 11 seconds into the show.
