WHY ALL THE FUSS ABOUT HRT?
HRT is a treatment that functions by balancing the reproductive hormones. It’s important to consider the risks before beginning treatment, so speak to your doctor, who will take into account your medical history. Recent survey results showed that women were significantly less willing to use hormones for hot flushes and instead used exercise, diet, herbal supplements, acupuncture or meditation. But the benefits of HRT go beyond the relief of hot flushes – it also helps with night sweats, sleep disruption, bone loss and heart problems.
