    hi sarah i have had all of above, still have bar, acid reflux/heartburn or night sweats although they bound to return - all i know is the meno is a living hell and never in my worst dreams did i envisage a time like this, how cruel for us women.

    natural remedies fine if you can find way though it all as is with conventional HRT, seems trying before you are lucky enough  to find some help.

    i cant get my head around why we feel impending  doom and anxeity though  - do you have that ?, especially on waking mornings if so its trully awful.    there is lots of good info on here and the menopause matters website.  all the best debi

    Hi Sarah

    I can relate to all of your symptoms and one thing that helps me through is mindfulness practice where I sit quietly and focus on the breath. I know this may sound crazy but there are many benifits to mindfulness. First you focus the mind on the breathing and away from the symptoms but more than this the itching can be worsened by stress caused by other symptoms. The impending doom feeling is horrible but once the stress levels reduce, so do the feelings. Failing that - a cup of chamomile or liquorice tea helps with relaxation

    Stress makes all these things worse, but the symptoms make you stressed.

    Take one thing at a time and focus on finding a remedy for that and you will

    probably find some of the others will disappear, at least for a while.

    Try not to worry things will get better, just follow the advice of the wise

    ladies😊😊

    Hope you are feeling better very soon.

    Hi, Sarah ~

    Love that you want to look to natural remedies, first. I agree with that. Aromatherapy helps. Lavender-Honey Tea helps with anxiety; meditation; yoga, music; exericse; proper Vitmain supplementation; a healthy diet; lots of water and lots of solid sleep. These are all natural remedies that when practiced, regularly, DO HELP. However, there are occasions when all the healthy living just can't alleviate a hormonal imbalance. I'd rather take bioidentical hormones for a short period of time, than narcotics to manage the symtoms of an untreated imbalance. I love that you want natural remedies. I think most of us really want that, as well. It's hard to live just perfectly within that sweet spot of balance though, in fact, I think we pay for it later with the severity of our perimenopause and menopause, if we didn't take care of ourselves really well while younger. I've had to address a lot of things, naturally first, and now ... I'm ready to seek additional support through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy because some of this stuff--this anger, these waves of depression, this foggy brain, these odd aches and pains, this ANXIETY (ugh!), and just this overall sense of unwellness, this is what has got to go, for me.

    I'm only "44!" I want to live my life NOW, not wait for one week a month where I feel "ok." Here's to natural remedies though, I seek them out first. I've also heard something about arctic ruby oil, evening primrose, methylfolate, and well, even Marijuana. I think I've about exhausted my version of natural remedies. Good luck with your research! I wish you the best as your search for the answers you need.

    Hi Sarah,

    I have been dealing with Nausea since January 2016 and I think my anxiety came because of back/forth Dr visits and the frustration of not knowing what was the cause- 😢

    I had every test performed & finally came to my own conclusion that I am peri menopausal at 52-

    I do not take the Zofran that was prescribed as I prefer all that is natural (less chance of xtra symptoms from side effects)😉

    I start my morning with lemon water and drink chamomile tea or warm ginger water throughout the day, there are days that I still have nausea though but on a much lower grade level..

    to avoid constipation or digestiv discomfort.. I consume oatmeal and try to eat 1 teaspoon a day of virgin coconut oil on my toast-

    I also have found that oil-pulling at least once a day keeps the toxins and aches away (or that general sick feeling)-

    I also drink 4 ounces of tart cherry juice (again for body soreness and digestive help)

    take 2 vit c & fish oil daily & try to walk a little every day... that has helped me manage, along with finding this forum!👍

    Hope this is info provides some help- ; -)
