What natural relief is there instead of red clover??

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi guys 

in the same boat as everyone else trying to find a way through the menopause.I had been taking red clover and was doing great but ready do some worrying stuff about breast cancer so I switched to Vit b complex. Wow what a difference back to no sleep, hot sweats,moods swings and achy joints. Yes I hear you say why but get worried all the time !  Thinking of trying Macafen as it isn,t an isoflavin but gets your body to make more oestrogen? I can,t take hrt as the progesterone makes me very very unwell. 

So my question is what do people think of Macarena as a possible solution as I need more oestrogen am 49 and about 4 years in so still in the fluctuating hormones stage. And any definitive info about the possibilities of red clover causing cancer ??

Thanks for listening guys xxxx

    I hear you with spell check.  Hi Mounty.  I use Macca and find it is great help with lots of menopause stuff. You can always give it a try and see if it suits you.  B Vits are also a good thing to take for many reasons. We are all different and different things suit different people. Good luck.
