      Hello Camilla, Try to eat a well balanced diet with plenty of fruit and veg. The Menopause support tablets are a plantbased alternative to HRT, check this product is suitable for you. You may find the Urticalcin tablets helpful for hair and nail growth. Ask the doctor to test for low iron, low thyroid or low Vit D incase these are health issues that need addressed too.
