Use Nat­u­ral Reme­dies to Ease Menopause-Re­lated Symp­toms Two top nat­u­ral choices to con­sider: Phy­toe­stro­gens and black co­hosh. Phy­toe­stro­gens are plant sub­stances that bind to es­tro­gen re­cep­tors in mam­mals. Soy foods and other legumes, flax seeds, ap­ples, car­rots, fen­nel, cel­ery, and pars­ley are di­etary sources. A high-phy­toe­stro­gen diet is thought to ex­plain why menopausal symp­toms ap­pear to oc­cur less fre­quently in cul­tures that con­sume a pre­dom­i­nantly plant-based diet.

Black co­hosh is the most stud­ied herbal ther­apy for menopause symp­toms. Re­search in­di­cates that it is most ef­fec­tive for hot flashes, mood swings, sleep dis­or­ders, and body aches. It also ap­pears to be help­ful in re­duc­ing anx­i­ety, as well as symp­toms of anx­i­ety such as heart pal­pi­ta­tions. Some stud­ies have used black co­hosh in com­bi­na­tion with St. John’s wort, red clover, soy, and/or chaste tree berry.
