In an article by Connections, An Educational Resource of Women’s International Pharmacy it says, “It is now well established that chronic stress leads to an out-pouring of cortisol, and with that, a gradual depletion of DHEA. Over time, this hormonal imbalance can lead to hardening of the arteries, thinning bones, increasing waistline girth, and impaired functioning of the immune system.”

If you can get a blood test done to identify your DHEA levels then you can proceed to a routine of how much to take for maintenance of your individual body. Otherwise, five to ten mg, twice a day are enough for most women on a daily program. Men who pump iron professionally are often on a high intake of DHEA because of it’s conversion to testosterone. Which is a good thing as long as it is not overdone.

Remember that each of us is different and we respond to treatments differently. Other herbs that can aid and improve symptoms of menopause are Red Clover, Dong Quai, Agnus Castus and Valerian. One textbook therapy does not work for everybody, so try a different approach if one of these do not help you. Always let your doctor know what you are taking and discuss alternative treatments with them. You don’t have to take something just because they say so. Work together to improve your health and stay natural.

As always, be sure to consult your physician before using any natural remedies or before changing your healthcare regimen, especially if you have allergies, are currently experiencing health problems, or are taking any medication.
