BACKGROUND: Evidence suggests that many perimenopausal and early postmenopausal women will experience menopause symptoms, hot flushes being the most common. Symptoms caused by fluctuating levels of oestrogen may be alleviated by HRT but there has been a marked global decline in its use due to concerns about the risks and benefits of HRT; consequently many women are now seeking alternatives.

BACKGROUND: Evidence suggests that many perimenopausal and early postmenopausal women will experience menopausal symptoms; hot flushes are the most common. Symptoms caused by fluctuating levels of oestrogen may be alleviated by hormone therapy (HT), but a marked global decline in its use has resulted from concerns about the risks and benefits of HT. Consequently, many women are seeking alternatives.

"Religious" stigmata describe body marks and sores that reflect the crucifixion wounds of Christ (hands and wrists, feet, flank, back, shoulders, forehead) and which are transferred to an individual through fervent prayer. "Non-religious" stigmata usually describe spontaneous episodes of bleeding with no identifiable cause outside any religious context. Irrespective of the setting in which they occur, such lesions are extremely striking.
