Dr. Wendy Warner discusses non-hormon
Did you know that nearly 50 million women in the U.S. are affected by hot flashes?
65 to 80 percent of women experience hot flashes to some degree, and a study recently found that hot flashes can affect a woman’s health and productivity at work. Due to the sheer number of women who are affected by menopause-related hot flashes, it is critical that women become more knowledgeable about the variety of therapy options available.
A recent survey found that more than two-thirds of women ages 50 to 64 said they would be comfortable using non-hormonal treatments to control hot flashes, but only 10 percent have discussed non-hormonal treatment options with their healthcare practitioner.
Wendy Warner, MD, ABIHM of the Medicine in Balance Clinic, discusses menopause, hormone replacement therapy as a treatment for hot flashes, as well as non-hormonal approaches that she often recommends to patients to significantly reduce menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes and mood issues.
