If you do not get any relief just keep looking for the right mix of herbal medications. You are bound to find one that works.
As we all know, every woman goes through menopause. On average, right around age 50. Some women, like me, start very early. I started with perimenopausal symptoms basically when I was thirty-eight. It wasn’t anything more than a rush of hormones at that time but it did make me feel nauseous and light-headed.
I tried to talk to my doctor about menopause when I was 42 and he just laughed at me. He wasn’t my doctor anymore after that. When I was 44 and started having nausea day in and day out for 2 whole months, I asked my doctor at the time if it could be hormone related and she told me I was too young without even pausing and thinking about it for a minute.
Well, I have not had to worry about my menstrual cycle now for almost two years. My last menstrual cycle was when I was 46. Too young, my behind. Doctors…what do they know?
Some things that I have learned over the past four years for the natural treatment of menopause are; alcohol and caffeine will trigger massive hot flashes, so I do not drink much anymore. Not that I did to begin with but I drink even less now and I had to give up coffee and pop to boot.
To cool down quickly when having a hot flash run cold water over your wrists and splash some on the back of your neck. Let them mostly air dry don’t dry with a towel. You will feel better almost immediately.
You can try increasing your intake of foods rich in calcium and Vitamin D. These are important to decrease your chances of developing osteoporosis after menopause.
Soy products have been known to help some women with their menopausal symptoms. You can buy soy products, like soy milk, in your local grocery store.
There are herbal remedies like Black Cohosh, Valerian Root, Red Clover and some even say peppermint and licorice will help with menopausal symptoms.
It is all just been trial and error for me and no one thing has given me total relief except the one thing ordered off the internet. I took this remedy and was hot flash free in four days. I had to quit taking it though because it gave me the most incredible heartburn I have ever had in my life.
Too bad the only thing that actually worked for the hot flashes had to be bad for my stomach. I was so elated when I was hot flash free that I almost kept on taking it but the heartburn got so bad I just couldn’t.
Natural treatment of menopause symptoms is put there you just have to take the time to find what works for you.
