Women warned about herbal remedies14th January 2009
Experts have said there is no convincing evidence that herbal remedies commonly taken to relieve troublesome menopausal symptoms actually work.
The Drugs and Therapeutics Bulletin also claims that some 'natural' treatments, like black cohosh can cause serious harm. Some 40% of UK women are believed to use complementary and alternative medicines such as red clover, ginseng, wild yam extract, chaste tree, hops, sage leaf and evening primrose oil for symptoms of the menopause. Herbalists say that the lack of proof did not mean the treatments lacked effect.
