More women choosing alternative medicine to treat menopausal symptoms

June 21, 2015

More women are turning to complementary and alternative medicine to treat their menopausal symptoms without first consulting a clinician, according to research in Menopause, and a leading menopause group is calling on clinicians to take a more active role in educating patients about the various therapies.

In a longitudinal data analysis of Australian women, researchers found that women with menopause-related symptoms were more likely to use self-prescribed complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), but were not more likely to consult a CAM practitioner.
