Why Natural Remedies For Hot Flashes Are SO Important
I vividly remember a client who came to see me about 10 years ago.
She wanted to deal with her hot flashes naturally, but she almost had an anxiety attack in my office just talking about them because...
But her hot flashes were so severe that she almost had an anxiety attack just talking about them.
You see... Every time she had a hot flash it came with so much anxiety, panic, and such a feeling of not being able to think or function... She was afraid to turn on the stove or drive, and she didn't feel safe taking care of her kids.
And she was having at least 10 hot flashes a day.
"I made my 14-year-old son cry." "I can't sleep for more than an hour at a time." "I drove my car through the garage door. " These are things I hear from my menopausal clients - this is what menopause can feel like - and this is what my client was feeling.
I worked with this client using herbal remedies and did some acupuncture, and here's what happened.
Twelve weeks later she came for her appointment and I asked - as I always did - "How many hot flashes are you having per day?" And she LAUGHED and said "Oh I still have a couple but they are mild, and they don't bother me." And she was completely relaxed. They truly didn't bother her. I mean...
Who cares about a tiny warm flush if the being on fire, dripping sweat, and bone-shaking anxiety are gone?
Do Natural Remedies For Hot Flashes Work?
A recent study done on hundreds of women with severe menopausal symptoms showed a 92% success rate in getting significant relief from menopause symptoms with herbal remedies alone.
In her article in The Huffington Post Blog June 11, 2011, Cathy Margolin says:
"The truth is the majority of Asian women never experience the enormous amount of discomfort that American women seem to universally suffer during the menopausal years.
The difference between the way American women and Asian women deal with menopause is like night and day. It is natural foods and herbs versus artificial hormones and drugs.
The question that women really want answered is, "How do I get back to normal?" In other words, no more hot flashes, no more night sweats, no moodiness and no foggy thinking.
Traditionally, Asian cultures seem to have an inherent understanding that food and herbs can be added to the daily diet to help manage these changes when they first appear. They don't look to artificial hormone remedies known as HRT (hormone replacement therapy) as American women do. They nourish their bodies with natural plant-based foods, including herbs, just as their culture has done for thousands of years. Asian women use this approach thoughtfully and purposefully because they understand that the principals of nourishment work effectively and are all that is needed"
