Women's Health & Fitness  The use of alternative therapies in select populations is of interest. One such population is that of women's health.

It is known that many women prefer natural alternatives to treatments currently available for treatment of menopausal symptoms, uterine fibroids, nausea and vomiting of pregnancy, and osteoporosis.

Breast cancer is also an area of intense interest for alternative treatments. Herbal, soy proteins, and acupuncture are being used extensively.

Regular exercise and preventative vitamin therapy with calcium and mineral supplements is especially important for pre-menopausal women in order to combat or lessen osteoporosis.
