I’m trying to avoid hormone replacement therapy, so I’m relying on natural alternatives. One thing I’ve found that helps with the hot flashes is Black Cohosh.
My OB/GYN recommended this wonderful product: Remifemin. My local HEB used to carry it; as did the local CVS. Unfortunately, I can’t find it anywhere local anymore. The company website seems to be down and I’m wondering if the product has been discontinued. I can, at least, find it online for now. And it has been wonderful for relieving the hot flashes.
It claims to help with mood swings. Um….. no. Not for me, anyway. But at least I’m no longer throwing the covers off, saying, “OMG, it’s HOT in here!”
