    You are so right, new symptoms daily! It has made me have the worst health anxiety!! I can't believe all of these symptoms are menopause related, and I'm still seeking medical answers. Nausea, no appetite, weight loss, eye problems, digestive issues, headaches....list goes on. I'm hoping it all just stops, and I can go back to some normalcy again. Hope you find some relief too. I tried estrogen a couple times, and it made me feel queasy, so I stopped. I'm on HRT now, but not sure how much, if at all, it has helped me.

    I did not see results with it after taking it for 2 months. I had better luck with St. John's wort. Sage is good for hot flashes, vitamin D3 for mood.

      I only took it for a few days at a time because my symptoms would go away, when I felt them coming on again I would take it. Really it is a good pill to take. Eventually my heart palps and anxiety went away after taking it. Hope this helps, xx

      Marisol, maybe things work on me because I eat organic foods, I avoid anything containing soy lecithin or soy of any type including chocolate, I also don't drink coffee or tea, and no alcohol which all contribute to those symptoms. So basically, the more wholesome your body is, the better your body will absorb the pills and get into your system to work.

      That's so true eating healthy is part of feeling better and I haven't been doing that lately I just started around 2 days ago trying to eat better I Don't drink coffee or tea or alcohol but I am a chocolate lover which I've stopped having around a month now I've gained so much weight and I've always have eaten the Same all my life and never gained a pound I'm going to try organics maybe I would see a change.

      You'll feel the change of eating organic when you start taking St. John's wort or any other pill and you see that it's working. Yes, I cut out chocolate because like you I gained a lot of weight, which I am now working on losing. Just avoid anything with soy in it as well. It's a hormone disruptor.

      yes it does help. thank you.   I just read another answer you gave to another lady about soy.  I seem to have trouble with soy, but you also mentioned soy lecithin which i have since looked at the label on my flax oil supplement and it is there amongst the ingredients but it is 100% organic.  Do you think it would still cause a problem?
