Concerns about the safety of hormone therapy have led to demand for other options like Complementary Medicine; however, the efficacy and adverse effects of non hormonal therapies are unclear. This book presents a clinical trial comparing Chinese Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture and Hormone therapy on a population of Chinese Peri- and Post-menopausal women.
