Menopause Without Pills – Rethinking Hot Flashes

November 10, 2002 The New York Times

I took estrogen for more than 15 years after a severe bout of depression and hot flashes. Concerned about the possible negative effects of this therapy after such a prolonged period, I decided on an alternative approach.

With the help of a doctor who specializes in alternative medicine, I have been using a compounded progesterone-based cream that has been adjusted until any symptoms disappear. Nutritional supplements have also been a very important part of my health program.

As a result, I feel better at 72 than I did at 65.

I strongly suggest that women who have been frightened by recent statistics on hormone replacement therapy or who are still suffering from discomforts of menopause seek out this alternative approach.
