The best treatment is the one you will trust and follow.
Hormone replacement therapy is ideal for treating acute symptoms and preventing bone loss, colon cancer, plaque formation, dementia, vaginal dryness and other consequences of lack of estrogen. Some people feel more comfortable with herbal products. Depends on your goals and need to discuss with your dr.
