Review of Complementary Treatments for Menopause

By Kronenberg F; Fugh-Berman A

[Complementary and Alternative Medicine for Menopausal Symptoms: A Review of Randomized, Controlled Trials].

Annals of Internal Medicine, 2002, 137(10):805-813.
Language: English.
AT: Columbia University, New York, New York; and George Washington University, Washington, DC

Abstract: Since women often use popular complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) self-treatments for menopausal symptoms, the authors reviewed randomized, controlled trials of these therapies to test their efficacy. From searches of MEDLINE and AMED dating back to 1966, the authors identified 29 CAM studies that fit their protocols.

They conclude that black cohosh and other foods that contain phytoestrogens are promising for treating menopausal symptoms. The studies do not, however, support any other herbs or CAM therapies.
