Menopause is the stage of a woman’s life when levels of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone decline. This results in the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause, including hot flashes, night sweats, and insomnia. Lack of estrogen also contributes to osteoporosis and heart disease. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) attempts to dupe the body into behaving as if no hormonal changes have occurred, but this treatment is associated with side effects. Black cohosh is a natural herbal remedy that, though it does not have estrogenic effects, alleviates hot flashes and other effects of reduced estrogen, without the adverse side effects of HRT medications.
