For All You Hot Women

Menopause is the theme for this month.  Many of us suffer in silence with the symptoms of menopause, like anxiety, depression, apathy, memory loss, decreased confidence, hot flashes, night sweats and sleeplessness to name a few.  We get so confused about what is going on with us and what is happening in our bodies. We begin to question ourselves and wonder if we are loosing our minds, if this is going to be permanent, or even worse, if these conditions are going to worsen.

So, this month we will focus on helpful information, tips and natural ways to lessen these sometimes debilitating symptoms of menopause and help us cope with life easier.  One of the most well reputed and well studied natural herbal compounds used specifically for menopause is Black Cohosh. There is, of course, much more than just one herb to discuss. We will cover more information throughout the month and we will also clear up the any misunderstandings about menopause versus peri-menopause.

First, start by taking a deep breathe, let it out and know you are not alone (there's an estimated 50 million menopausal women in the US), and no, you are not going insane.
