The conclusion reached on the basis of 4 years of experience with 517 female patients is that the Cimicifuga product has a hormone-like and slightly euphoric effect. This beneficial effect is particularly evident in autonomic-psychic change-of-life phenomena in the various age groups. There is no risk of adverse side effects, particularly no unphysiological bleeding.
It is generally recommended that greater attention be paid to phytotherapy for controlling mild and moderate cases in order to reduce the use of potent substances, especially hormones.
