Natural Treatment for Menopause
Don’t Give Up, Another Solution Awaits
Menopause marks the time in a female’s life when ovulation officially ends and the monthly periods cease. For 85% of women, it can also be the beginning of the many frustrating symptoms associated with menopause including, vaginal dryness, hot flashes, insomnia, mood swings, and anxiety. Natural medicine is often an effective go-to solution for many women worldwide. However with so many remedies to choose from, it can be difficult to find the one that consistently works. If you’ve tried almost everything and nothing seems to be working, there may be something missing.
Adrenal Support is an Absolute Must
The adrenal glands are the tiny but mighty glands that sit on top of each kidney. Their role is to produce hormones that are essential for our health and wellbeing. Along with the production of cortisol and epinephrine, once the ovaries retire, the adrenal glands continue to produce sex hormones including estrogen and progesterone. This means that optimally functioning adrenal glands may help reduce your symptoms, easing the transition to menopause.
Choosing an Adaptogen
It’s important to choose a remedy that contains an adaptogen; an herb that optimizes the function of your adrenal glands, protecting your body from the regular onslaught of mental and physical stress experienced in today’s world. If you are constantly feeling stressed, lacking sleep and always on the go, the adrenal glands are most likely working overtime to keep up. Chronic stress can have a negative impact on your health, making you more susceptible to insomnia, colds and the flu, heart disease, anxiety and bring on the worst of the menopausal symptoms.

It’s cooling and mood balancing effects promotes sleep, calms the mind, supports your physical and mental health and builds energy reserves which can help your body adapt more readily to stress.
Many of the beneficial effects of the Harmony Menopause line are due to the featured herb, Rehmannia glutinosa, the key adaptogenic herb in the Harmony Menopause line.
Rehmannia glutinosa is a perennial herb commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine that is known for its cooling properties.

During times of chronic stress, immune dysfunction and exhaustion, Rehmannia can be relied on for support and recovery which makes it a valued herb in the Harmony Menopause formulas.
Natural medicine can provide relief from menopause symptoms – from boosting your energy, balancing your mood and reducing hot flashes. However, keeping in mind the importance of optimizing the function of your adrenal glands, it would be important to choose a formula that contains an adaptogen. Harmony Menopause contains that missing link – Rehmannia glutinosa and along with a synergistic blend of herbs, Harmony Menopause may be just what you need.
