2. Try alternative therapies
One of the most tested alternative therapies is black cohosh (found in products such as Remifemin). It may help with hot flushes and vaginal dryness. Red clover (found in Promensil) may assist night sweats. The herb Vitex agnus-castus (chasteberry) is a traditional treatment for irregular or heavy periods. St John’s Wort may help with emotional instability.
