    Thanks for the “recipes”! I have SOME of the herbs already, but I can see that there are a few more that I need to add to my “herbal medicine chest” (and to my medicinal herb garden.)

    Or you could try:

    1000 mgs vitamin E
    500 mgs to 1000 mgs Evening Primrose Oil
    and Sam’s Club Adult Multi vitamin (which has several of the ingredients from its former Estro-Vitamin they no longer stock).

    If that doesn’t work, the best thing I’ve found is nuts. If you are not allergic.

    Grind up 1 pound of walnuts, 1 pound of almonds and 1 pound of pecans. If you choose, you can also add 1 pound of sunflower seeds. Mix together. Pour a half a cup on your cereal every morning.

    BTW, the nuts also had another interesting side effect. I used to get up in the morning kind of creaky, taking a few seconds to straighten up to walk. Not anymore. Now I climb right out of bed without the creakiness.

    I forgot to add…the creakiness didn’t disappear right away…probably took a couple weeks to 2 months. It was the hubster who noticed – and the only dietary change I’d made was the crushed walnuts, pecans, almonds and sunflower seeds.

    I’ve learned that soy is also good for hot flashes, but be careful because too much has a very strange side effect called “peristant arousal syndrome”. Your husband may not be able to keep up.

    PrepperMom, 28 is WAAAY to early, even for early menopause! Have you gone to your Dr. to have this checked out? If not, DO so….SOON!

    I wasn’t taking near this amount of soy and it triggered it me. I would have to say, watch your soy intake ladies, especially through menopause or if you’re already taking estrogen therapies. This is an uncomfortable condition, I can assure you. Both physically and mentally.

    OK, I read the article, and have a question…who the HECK eats FOUR POUNDS of soyevery day for a month?! I don’t eat four pounds of ANYTHING a day! Or did I misunderstand and the amount was four pounds a month? Still, that is one HECK of a lot of soy! Guess the hubster doesn’t have to worry about suddenly having to fend off a randy wife! (Not that he would even TRY, LOL!)
