Menopause: Plant-Based Tx Show Promise

Plant-based therapies helped reduce the number of hot flashes and vaginal dryness among menopausal women, a small meta-analysis found.

Compared with control groups, use of phytoestrogens was linked to a decrease in the number of hot flashes per day (pooled mean difference of changes -1.31, 95% CI -2.02 to -0.61) and vaginal dryness score (pooled mean difference -0.31, 95% CI -0.52 to -0.10), reported Oscar H. Franco, MD, of Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, and colleagues.

But there was no significant difference in the daily night sweat score between the two treatment groups (pooled mean difference -2.14, 95% CI -5.57 to 1.29), they wrote in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Tuzki Bunny Emoticon
