Anxiety Snapshot can be a place to start if you are searching for information about anxiety. Are you feeling more anxious than usual?

Anxiety

Are you “feeling nervous, worried, uneasy, panicky, and fearful about what might happen”?

In Signs and Symptoms of Anxiety: Anxiety – What Is Anxiety? the (Australian) Jean Hailes for Women’s Health elaborate on:

“Anxiety is part of being human. Everyone experiences it. We describe anxiety as feeling nervous, worried, uneasy, panicky, and fearful about what might happen. Anxiety can happen when we’re about to give a speech at a wedding or at work, while driving a car, going to meet with our child’s teacher, or looking down from the top of a skyscraper. It can also occur when we worry about climate change, whether our children will have jobs when they grow up, or if someone could hurt us or someone we love”.

Anxiety Disorders

Does your anxiety refuse to go away?

In Anxiety Disorders: Overview the (United States) National Institute of Mental Health explain:

Anxiety Snapshot

“Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. Many people worry about things such as health, money, or family problems. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For people with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. The symptoms can interfere with daily activities such as job performance, schoolwork, and relationships”.

Bioidentical Hormones Snapshot can be a place to start if you are searching for information about bioidentical hormones, pharmacy-compounded hormones or custom-mixed bioidentical hormone preparations.

Definition

What are bioidentical hormones?

In Menopause Management: Pharmacy-Compounded Hormones the (Australian) Jean Hailes for Women’s Health explain:

“Pharmacy-compounded hormones (sometimes referred to as bioidentical hormones) are mixtures of hormones made in compounding pharmacies that are promoted as hormones ‘exactly like our own’ hormones. They can contain oestrogens, progesterone and sometimes other hormones such as testosterone.

The hormones are made into capsules, creams, gels, drops applied to the tongue, lozenges or troches (soft square-shaped tablets) sucked in the cheek”.

Natural or Not

Are bioidentical hormones natural?

In Bioidentical Custom Compounded Hormone Therapy the Australasian Menopause Society elaborate on:

“It is important to realise that no hormone used in any preparation of pharmaceutical grade menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) or compounded “bioidentical therapy” is ‘natural’. They are all synthesised in the laboratory from some precursor by enzymatic manipulation”.

Safe or Not

Are bioidentical hormones safe?

In Menopausal Symptoms: In Depth – What the Science Says About Complementary Health Approaches for Menopause Symptoms: Other Complementary Approaches – Bioidentical Hormones the (United States) National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health note:

  • “It’s been claimed that custom-mixed bioidentical hormone preparations are more effective and safer than conventional hormone therapy, but scientific evidence to support this idea is lacking. Custom-mixed bioidentical hormones may actually be riskier than conventional treatment because less is known about their safety. Also, no regulatory agency oversees their preparation, and therefore their content may vary from batch to batch”.

‘Natural’ Hormone Therapy

Are ‘natural’ hormone therapy options available?

In Menopause FAQs: Hormone Therapy for menopause Symptoms – Q. I’ve heard about something called bioidentical hormones. What are they? the North American Menopause Society’s (NAMS) elaborate on:

“A. …Bioidentical hormones do not have to be custom-compounded (meaning custom mixed). There are many well-tested, FDA-approved hormone therapy products that meet this definition and are commercially available from retail pharmacies in a variety of doses that will allow you and your doctor to customize your therapy to meet your needs”.

Natural Products

Are natural products helpful for menopause Symptoms?

In Menopausal Symptoms: In-Depth – What the Science Says About Complementary Health Approaches for Menopause Symptoms: Natural Products the (United States) National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) elaborate on:

Complementary and Integrative Health and Menopause Snapshot

“Many natural products have been studied for menopause symptoms. However, none has clearly been shown to be helpful. There’s little information on the long-term safety of natural products, and some can have harmful side effects or interact with drugs. The sections below give more detail about several natural products studied for menopause symptoms”.

Psychological and Physical Practices

Are psychological and physical practices helpful for menopause symptoms?

In Menopausal Symptoms: In-Depth – What the Science Says About Complementary Health Approaches for Menopause Symptoms: Psychological and Physical Practices the NCCIH elaborate on:

“Only a small amount of research has been done on most psychological and physical approaches for menopause symptoms. However, the limited evidence currently available suggests that some of these approaches might help to relieve symptoms or make them less bothersome”.

Tips

What are some tips about using  complementary and integrative health for menopause symptoms?

In Complementary Medicine Options for Menopausal Symptoms: Main Points the Australasian Menopause Society caution:

  • Complementary and Integrative Health and Menopause Snapshot“Speak with your doctor before using complementary medicine because it might affect other medications
  • Avoid buying online products – their safety cannot be guaranteed
  • You should not use soy/phytoestrogen products if you can’t take prescribed hormone therapy for safety reasons such as breast cancer
  • Bioidentical compounded hormone therapy cannot be recommended because their safety is unknown
  • No complementary medicine is as effective as oestrogen therapy for menopausal symptoms”.
