All natural remedies?

...for hot flashes...or is it flushes?
HATE THEM - can't get comfortable at night - hot one minute, then freezing...
can deal with them during the day ok - it's just at night I'm constantly throwing off blankets and then adding blankets then throwing off blankets... my poor husband...

Re: All natural remedies?

Hi kerriejg,

It is horrible at night with the hot flashes. I hear you, I do the same thing all night long, blankets on then off!!!! Do try the black cohosh it really does help. Also, try to wear all cotton pajamas they will also keep you cooler.

Take care,
Missy

Re: All natural remedies?

Hi since soy is said to help, red clover might also help since it contains estrogen properties.

Re: All natural remedies?

Hi Caat,

I have been taking the black cohosh for a couple of years now and am also having a raise in my liver enzymes. I asked my doc if the black cohosh could be causing it and she said no. How do you know that was the culprit and how bad were your liver enzymes? My doctor told me that it was high cholesterol causing mine, but I not quite sure I believe that.

Just curious,
Missy

They were high. I stopped the Black Cohash and they went back to normal.
