Managing Menopause - Ebooks + Bonus - Package 2
E-book #1 Alternative Medicine and Natural Healing for Menopause
Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) has been a common way to ease menstrual symptoms in women for many years. Hormone replacement therapy replaces the estrogen that a womans ovaries no longer make after menopause.
HRT has been shown to be excellent at preventing hot flashes, and improving sleep. Long-term use of hormone replacement therapy has shown to help prevent the thinning of a womans bones.
Since a study that was conducted in July of 2002, hormone replacement therapy has no longer been considered to be safe for long-term use in all post-menopausal women. The only exception is in very limited cases where other therapies are proving to be unhelpful and the woman needs relief from her symptoms.
Studies have shown that there are higher risks of breast cancer, stroke, blood clots, and heart disease, which are generally considered to outweigh the benefits of using hormone replacement therapy for a long period of time. HRT is not advised for women age 60 or over.
Traditional medicine typically falls short and since HRT is not for all women, many turn to natural and alternative medicine remedies to deal with symptoms and to improve quality of life.
There are many alternative options available to deal with menopause symptoms that can avoid the use of hormone replacement therapy and have considerably fewer risks involved.

E-book #4 The Relationship between Menopause and Osteoporosis
What Is Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a condition where the bones lose their mineral content and become brittle enough to fracture, even without provocation, such as a fall. All of the bones of the body are affected although the bones that generally fracture the most include the vertebral bodies, the hips, and the wrists.
Women are more prone to osteoporosis when compared to men. Throughout the world, osteoporosis is the cause of more than 8.9 million fractures per year. It affects more than 200 million women, which includes a tenth of all women over the age of 60. About one in three women older than 50 will suffer from a fracture related to osteoporosis, while 1 in 5 men over the age of 50 will suffer from an osteoporosis-related fracture.
Having a previous fracture is linked to an 86 increased risk of having another fracture. There is a great economic and personal toll associated with having osteoporosis. It is estimated that the disability associated with osteoporosis is more than that found in cancer and is about the same as disability associated with most chronic diseases, including hypertension, asthma, and rheumatoid arthritis.
