Natural Remedies to Sooth Menopausal and Perimenopausal Symptoms
Hot flashes are annoying. Sweat will pour off your forehead in the coldest of places. Sleeping becomes impossible. And, if that isn’t bad enough, irritability, mood swings, and lack of concentration can also play a part in menopausal and perimenopausal women. So, what can you try as an alternative to Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)? There are some really great products on the market.
The number one thing that women ask for to help with these symptoms is, you guessed it , Black Cohosh. What do I think of this herb? I love it. It has helped so many women with menopausal and perimenopausal symptoms. Try Black Cohosh alone. I suggest buying it from Oregon Wild Harvest, Nature’s Way, Soloray or Enzymatic Therapy, as these are all great manufacturers of Black Cohosh. If you need extra support for a good night sleep there is Remifemin Good Night put out by Enzymatic Therapy. This product contains Black Cohosh plus herbs that will help to relax you so you can get a restful sleep. These herbs are Valarian, Lemon Balm, and Hops. These herbs are safe and non-addicting.
But, if you tried black cohosh for a few months and it didn’t work for you. I have another wonderful product on my shelf made by the company Solgar, a very old and trusted name. The product? PM Phytogen Complex. “PM” is the initials for the herb Pueraria Mirifica. This is a certain species of Kudzu found in Thailand and found to be the most beneficial for symptoms of menopause and perimenopause. The product also contains B vitamins that give the nervous system support. B vitamins calm your nerves while supplying you with energy. The women I have suggested this product to are giving it two thumbs up.
