Menopause Treatment

Our gynaecologists believes in a multi-pronged approach to menopause management. We recommend a combination of lifestyle changes like exercise, healthy diet and regular screening, combined with nutritional supplements, herbal remedies, phyto-estrogens and bone-strengthening medication.
