Women Open to Natural Options for Menopause

More than a third of women have tried natural supplements to relieve menopausal symptoms, and one-quarter said they are their treatment of choice, according to a new national survey sponsored by ADM. In the poll of 1,258 women aged 40 to 55, a majority said they would like their health care professional to share more information about non-medicinal methods for addressing menopausal symptoms and be open to discussions about natural treatments.

The survey confirmed menopausal women are seeking advice from health professionals. Most cite any combination of obstetricians/gynecologists (48 percent), family physicians (38 percent) and/or general physicians (25 percent) as their menopause treatment advisors. Furthermore, 19 percent of women consult with nurse practitioners, nurses and/or pharmacists regarding treatment options for menopausal symptoms.
