    I found that by stopping eating meat because it has so many hormones in it, that I wasn't having so many problems - lots of water to keep the kidneys and bladder flushed - I drink 4 16Oz. bottles of water a day - my skin is itchy all over with some areas worse than others if I don't drink that much water - every day is a challenge but it eventually eases up

      Very true. Our factory farms are doing nothing for us, the animals and the environment. We are lucky, we have found a butchter who is as concerned as us - he has his own, free-foraging pigs and buys from other organic farmers. The meat really does taste better and I can enjoy my bacon butties with a clear concience.

      Check the calcium content of your water, some of them are very high and it is not well absorbed in that form. Better to drink from a good filter.

      HI Marnee

      I notice you said your skin is itchy, im having severe itching after having showers, even using just water does it, do you think its lack of drinking water then maybe and eating meat? What about to much sugar too?

      Definitely a lack of water - not juice and coffee and tea and sodas but water - the toxins need to be flushed from your body - first I did the water then I kept getting hot flashes and it usually started after supper - as I began to narrow things down I realized it was meat - when I didn't eat meat I only had mild flushes or very little so I started eating meat again and it started all over again - most meat has hormones - lunch meats with all their chemicals were bad - if I ate a little bit of hormone free chicken I was Ok - if I eat something sweet I make sure it is low carb - you will adjust to not having sugar - a piece of fruit is better than a cup cake or cookie - watermelon is very good - reduce your caffeine intake or drink caffeine free - it is a whole new lifestyle - lots of rest and light exercises

      i agree with this.  I discovered that I can only have fresh meat, not factory packed and also only free range chicken.  I noticed bad flushes also.  So yes, everything has to be as natural as possible during this phase, our bodies seem to reject everything else.!

      Hi Sochima8,I have not change my diet or took any vitamins,I did try HRT for 3 weeks but stop it just to scared to take it.....the hotfushes was the first to settle down then the symptoms

      I did heard as well if you take HRT and stop it the symptoms will come back

      For me it is best to go through mother nature naturally....

      Menopause is not a life sentence all I know we have lost the most important hormones in the body and this is for life,but because somebody still get hot flashes in there 80's don't mean you will too.
