    I have just started taking sage tablets for hot flushes. I think they are less frequent but not stopped yet (only day 3)

    Glad you are getting some relief smile

    Have any of you ladies experienced waking up drenched in sweat but so cold? I experienced this last night. I had sweat dripping down the backs of my legs it was so bad. Anyone else ever have this happen? And does it usually happen in the 2 weeks before your cycle?

    Hey thanks for this, I've just found a bit of sage in my cupboard and made this tea up, hope it works, I'm not suffering too bad with flashes, I'm more hot all of the time. By the way, how much sage do you use per cup and how many of these teas do you drink a day?

    I've also just looked on utube and found a very interesting video of how to reset your vagus nerve by a lady called Cheryl Townsley. I will definitely be doing this too on a daily basis. 😀
