12 Home Remedies for Menopause

Tammy

Periden-C is the absolute best remedy for menopause symptoms. Its like vitamin C on steroids. I diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer last July and the chemo cause me to go into early menopause. The hot flashes and night sweats were Unbearable. My cancer was progesterone and estrogen positive, which eliminates me as a candidate hormone therapy. My chemo nurse suggested Periden C. You have to ask the pharmacist for it even though it is an OTC vitamin.
Try it. You won't be sorry...

Daily Vitamins:
1 Multivitamin of your choice
1 High-potentcy B-Complex (250-500 mg approx dose per B Vitamin type)
1 Sublingual Dose B-12 (1000 iu)
1 Tab 400 mg Magnesium
2 capsules 2000 iu ea (4000 iu total) Vitamin D-3

In addition to the above, I began using a Progesterone (20 mg measured dose) cream, which helped with my menopausal symptoms. I was tested and found to be producing too much estrogen, estrogen dominant, was having mental fog, night sweats, mood swings and difficulty sleeping. This helped and I can buy it online or from a health food store - all natural form.

Now I have more energy, better memory, less pain and inflamation, better sleep and fewer hot flashes or night sweats.

Wow, where to begin on this topic. I saw that not many have responded with remedies so I thought it worth donating my two cents. If nothing else I hope that it kindles the discussion on this since so many women have and will be experiencing this out of the baby boomer generation.
I, like a lot of other people rushed into combating menopause when the hot flashes and night sweats began. It may interest you to know that in many cases these get worse as you get older. But there is light at the end of the tunnel.
I, at first, researched Black Cohosh and began taking the recommended dosage. However, when monitoring my blood count during my physicals my liver enzyme was up and I am pretty sure this was the culprit. It also causes adverse side affects like weak legs. And, as mentioned earlier, it is not the fav for prolonged care.
Then I began a regimen of a variety of different vitamins. There were so many I had to take them spread over several times a day. Not only is this hard for me but it was also expensive. At the same time I discovered that most, if not all, the pills I was taking were blood thinners. I was not fond of thinning my blood so I started eliminating them one by one until the symptoms re-occurred. At that time I re-introduced them one at a time until the symptoms subsided. This made sense to me as it left room to increase dosages as I get older instead of taking the maximum now when not needed, thereby making it less effective when it is. I also decided to make my weekends “pill free”. Here again it leaves room for growth and, until I have to, I am not overwhelmed with taking a lot of pills. I recommend this for every woman out there. It will take a little time getting the dose right but ultimately you are in control!
Currently, and for the last year, I have been taking the following – experiencing NO hot flashes, sleepless nights, night sweats, or other unwelcomed symptoms. Some of these doses are less than the recommended dose on the bottle – but still effective.
2 tabs Glucosamine/Chondroitin Advanced Triple Strength – I have very bad knees and this is a god send! You can get away with the less expensive but over time as the joints worsen you will need this. It is expensive but I get it when it is on sale.
1 tab Tummeric – this helps absorb the Glucosamine. It also has fringe benefits concerning cancer prevention, among other things.
2 tabs Calcium with Vitamin D (2 = 1200 mg) – The vitamin D comes in handy if you are not able to get the sun you need. Having a Vitamin D deficiency is very unpleasant.
1 tab Evening Primrose Oil
1 tab multi vitamin of choice
1 tab Korean Ginseng (highest mg I can find and afford)
1 tab of an Estroven-ish supplement. I take the store brand as it is better afforded. When attempting to eliminate this pill night sweats re-occurred as well as the hot flashes and were unbearable. It’s the losing sleep that makes you crazy!
1 tab Gingko Biloba - (highest mg I can find and afford) – this is to aid my memory (another side effect) you will not see the advantages of this until you quit taking it. Then it will feel like your thoughts are scattered and out of control.
There is my remedy for menopausal symptoms. I hope that, should you attempt it, it works as well for you as it does for me. They are still potentially blood thinners but at least it is in moderation compared to what I was taking before. I also drink a smoothie every morning with yogurt, flax seed, and several of my fruit cravings for that day. More times than not, I incorporate Pomogranit and Cranberry. An apple and banana a day doesn’t hurt either.
Life is good! And the number one reason? I am strong in my faith. Peace comes from God and within. I am diligent in my relationship with him. I CANNOT FAIL AND IT COMES FROM NOTHING I CAN CONTRIBUTE.

Best wishes to all, and peace.

Evening primrose and Lecithin'natural source' It is best to begin this at least at age 40 or so. I began taking this at age 45 and now at menopause it's a 'breeeze' hot flashes are like 'two blinks of the eye' i got Rx for night flashes and that made it worse, went back to the above, Black Kohosh can only be taken for a short period of time and must be in contact with family doctor for prolonged use. the above two are simplyu fantastic.

2 promrose 3 times a day, and with each one 1,200mg Lecithin, that is pure SOY. sometimes i take 1 extra Lecithin if needed..... i swear by this. Above all, a positive attitude, as i refuse to let menopause dictate to me and i go, 'ohhh wellll' just go with it with a smile and carry on... a lot is positive thinking and mental healing, it works...
