A free community information session on achieving drug-free menopause relief is being offered by St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton.
While hormone replacement therapy remains the most popular treatment for menopausal symptoms, studies suggests it may present risks with long-term use, says St. Joe's.
A recent research study by Dr. Sheryl Green, clinical psychologist at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, involved the development and implementation of a cognitive-behavioural intervention for symptoms of menopause. Research participants have shown a significant improvement in quality of life after participating in CBT treatment programs after successful results of treating mood swings, anxiety, depression and sexual concerns that can be associated with menopause.
