      so far my cancer nurse has told me to only take sage as its non hormonal but sweats and heat is killing me.my day is defined by my sweating ,its awful.

      anything that is got no natural hormones would be good but i have no clue.

    HI lainey - do you just have sweating or flushing also? i have heard that MACA is supposed to help balance hormones naturally...i was prescribed that with some other herbal concoctions from a naturalopath, but i didnt follow-thru...i think i am going to re-visit because my sweating has calmed down, but my flushing has really ramped up...i get upwards of 10 a day...actually i feel like i am in a constant state of flush - UGH!

    I am taking femerelle. Only just started but 3 days in and no hot sweats. Its linseed and vitamin b6. Hoping it keeps working as I have to come off my oestrogen

    HI Lainey,

    Not sure if you got a answer as yet.I am going though menopause and at first it was really bad, but my doctor told me about estroven , it sold in waltmart or you can get it on line and it really work so you can try it. they have different ones.

    let me know if it work for you.... and just hang in there.Try and get regular exercise too.

    Bio-idnetical hormones can be a better option; Evorel/Estradot patches in combination with Utrogestan capsules both on prescription in UK
