    Hi Michelle

    I came off hrt 3 weeks ago to try the natural route. I'm taking a multivitamin for women aged 50+, St John's Wort and Black Cohosh. I have to say that my symptoms have improved and I'm feeling very positive for the first time in about 3 years. I hope this helps. Take care.

    I like flax meal because it balances out my hormones and symptoms go away or diminish. Put it in cereal, smoothies and yogurt.

       I also like taking Hesperidince for hot flashes.

    Hi Michelle

    Top of the list Vit D3 (most of us are deficient in D3), Magnesium with B6 (ditto, due to soil depletion), Vit C (rosehip), raw cider vinegar, omega 3 and coconut oil. I also have some linseeds with my breakfast and I have recently started taking a non GM soy supplement.

    I don't take calcium as I get plenty in my diet. I tried Black Cohosh but it made me feel weird (happens to some folk)

    I would say go easy on the gaviscon and lansoprazole - not good in the long run. Since I cut down on bread and 'pastries' (wheat) I get hardly any acid reflux.

    I have read that Cat's Claw is good for muscle and joint pain, so we have just ordered some - I'll let you know how it goes on.

    Oooh! Before I forget - Probiotic capsules! Capsules have more types of bacteria and survive into the gut better than yoghurt drinks.

    I know I come over as a bit of a know it all in these matters, but My OH and I have got so sick of feeling sxxxxy (me with menopause and him Diabetes) that we have decided to do something about it and have done a lot of research. It's working!cheesygrin
