Today's SMH article really lays it on “it's something women dread”, “10 years of hot flushes”, “50 hot flushes a day”, “a time for anti-depressants” and so on.
Nothing for it but to ignore the $1 billion Women's Health Initiative study and reach for the HRT!
I’m trusting Sydney Morning Herald won’t reject my comment which mentions Femmenessence by name, as a clinically researched natural alternative to HRT with documented positive effects on hormone levels (together with positive effects on hot flushes and all the other things that make this a trying time for so many women).
But as usual, a product can only do so much and even though I plan to continue taking Femmenessence into the sunset (for my bones, heart and neurological function) I’m working hard at all the dietary, lifestyle and exercise elements that have made menopause not much more than a cessation of my menstrual cycle. And if I manage to find a publisher who isn’t terrified of the word menopause you’ll be able to read all about those self-help measures in a new book. Meanwhile, those measures are pretty much the same as the ones that support healthy conception and pregnancy!
