Category 2: Medicamentous and non-medicamentous measures to normalize metabolism
Alimentary Therapy Alimentation should be balanced and of full value, dinner should be light and not be served late in the evening. Low fat content is highly recommended, but unsaturated fatty acids are essential. The so-called mediterranean diet seems to be the best form. Osteoporosis should be prevented by high intake of milk and dairy products, in some cases calcium should be supplemented. Soy bean products are useful because of their content in phytoestrogens.
Phytotherapy Extracts of medicinal plants such as Cimicifuga (squaw root) are very helpful in treating menopausal complaints. If additionally chronic prostation with or without sleep disorders is present, treatment with melissa leaves, vandal root (valeriana), cones of hops, lavender flowers and herb of passion flower is recommended. In depressive states buds and flowers of Saint John´s wort are favourable, in states of anxiety rhizome of kava-kava. Pain of bones and connective tissue can be treated by extracts from devil@s claw rhizoma and herb of stinging nettle.
