soy products makes sense, because soy has an estrogen analog. Other people say that eating wild yams also helps.

there's lots of homeopathic products and natural herbs that you can try as well, in the health store. i have also heard good things about Vitex/chasteberry.

you could, of course, undergo Hormone replacement therapy. I read somewhere that the early studies saying it was harmful are not quite correct.

OK Ladies, listen up! Since hormone replacement therapy has been introduced into this thread, and if you feel that at any time you or anyone you know might consider HRT, or if you feel qualified to advise others on the subject; I ask that you do a bit of information gathering, first.

I am providing two links to further information. Both articles were published in 2015. One is by the Mayo Clinic, one of the most respected hospitals in the United States.

The other is by The Telegraph (telegraph.co.uk.), a website dealing with (as best as I can understand) sensationalism and anything else that sells, including politics, sports, dating, etc..

I invite you to read both articles at your leisure. You decide for yourself which article was written with genuine concern for the menopausal woman, and which was written (unless I am sorely wrong), solely to make a quick buck at the expense of providing erroneous information to those who need the truth the most.

The Mayo Clinic does not regard all forms of HRT as unsafe for all women. It does indicate certain types of HRT at certain doses may provide benefits that outweigh the risks in women meeting certain criteria.

The Telegraph, on the other hand, seems to say: 'Everyone except our sources are wrong and have been wrong all the time. Trust us. We know best. We are not a teaching hospital, we're a website out to make a buck. What's not to trust'.

I invite your comments.
