Hot Flashes

Here comes another one! Oh my god!! This is so annoying!! I’m hot...I’m cold... I’m sweating and soaking through to my sheets. I just want this to stop! 

Sound familiar?

Unfortunately, all too familiar for many women hitting this transitional time of life.

Of course, it’s not only a nighttime issue. These frustrating hot flashes, flushes, night sweats or whatever you want to call them can sweep over like a wave at any time and not only be uncomfortable, but horribly embarrassing at times. Yes?

Looking for relief?

Wouldn’t it be nice to smoothly glide through this transition? To have the positive aspect of never dealing with another menstrual cycle without the perimenopausal and menopausal hot flashes, mood swings etc??

Other than the infrequently necessary hormone replacement therapy, lifestyle changes and individualized herbal and supplemental therapies can go a long way to a smooth menopausal transition.

Why do some women do well with picking up a couple of herbs at the local health food store and others do not? I believe this is because each women is an individual and her treatment has to be specific to her. This is the blessing of applied kinesiology. This holistic technique allows the practitioner to find out which remedies will work best with your system. Not everyone takes a little black cohosh and “POOF” like magic, their symptoms go away. Many supplement companies would like you to think that, but in my 30 years of experience, it rarely works that way. Typically, a combination of ingredients are needed and not the same mix for everyone. Also, it’s incredibly important for the supplements to be of the highest quality. High quality, standardized, laboratory tested herbal supplements are much more common in “doctor only brands”. That being said, if you can buy a menopause remedy for $5 or $10 online or in the store, it’s probably very low quality.

It’s not easy. Right? Black cohosh... Don quai... Sage.... Red clover... Rhubarb.... Vitamine E... Bioflavinoids.... Vitex, Maca, Ashwagandha, Rhodiola, Soy isoflavones, Kava, St. John’s Wort, Ginseng and which Ginseng; Korean, Panax, Asian, Siberian, American, and the list goes on!! Yikes!!
