Research: IBRAHIM and colleagues

Listed in Issue 72


IBRAHIM and colleagues reviewed (48 references) the literature for alternative therapies for treatment of menopausal symptoms.


Fewer than one in three women choose to take hormone replacement therapy (HRT), due to lack of confidence in the espoused benefits and the significant array of associated side effects. Alternatives to conventional HRT have become more accessible and acceptable to many women. Physicians now face the challenges of how to advise patients about alternative medicine and how to determine which therapies may be safe and effective.
