It depends on what your symptoms are. Since you haven't actually started menopause you won't know for a while. If your symptoms are physical ie-hot flashes, then I'v heard that acupuncture is helpful, but it must be done regularly. For all other symptoms (emotional, moodiness, depression) homeopathy did wonders for my mother.
