Randy Meltzer is a chiropractic and naturopathic health care professional with more than 30 years of experience. As founder of the Meltzer Natural Health Care Center, Randy Meltzer utilizes holistic, natural remedies to treat a number of health conditions for men and women, including heart disease, chronic fatigue, and menopausal symptoms.
Taking place around the age of 50, menopause affects more than one million women every year. While some experience mild or no symptoms at all, a vast number endure discomforts such as mood swings, hot flashes, bone density loss, and night sweats. The traditional remedy is hormone replacement therapy (HRT), a combination of estrogen and progestin (a synthetic-like substance for progesterone). However, taking HRT comes with numerous unpleasant side effects, including facial hair growth and weight gain.
To replace the estrogen and progesterone loss during menopause using natural remedies, women should take soy and black cohosh containing natural progesterone and phytoestrogens, a compound that resembles estrogen in the body. Other plants and natural supplements recommended for menopausal symptom relief are vitamin C, alfalfa, vitamin E, and hesperidin (a substance found in citrus fruits). More about the natural remedies offered by Randy Meltzer is available at his New York City office at 99 University Place, Suite 412, or by phone at (212) 255-6710.
