What You Can Do For Hot Flashes Hot flashes (or hot flushes) are one of the most frequent symptoms of perimenopause (the time before menopause actually starts) and menopause. Hot flashes occur when the blood vessels near the skin’s surface dilate to cool. They can also come at night along with sweating, known as night sweats. More than half of women in the U.S. and Canada experience hot flashes during perimenopause but not all women going through menopause have hot flashes. Hot flashes last from 30 seconds to several minutes at a time. They usually subside between the first and second year... (Read More ...)

Tips For Coping With Headaches Have you ever suffered from a migraine?  I am so fortunate that I have not.  I have had a few headaches in my life, but very seldom. People usually describe a migraine headache as a throbbing, very intense headache.  Often there will be blurred vision, difficulty concentrating, nausea, vomiting, eye pain, and the intense head pain. Headaches usually are a result of the arteries of the brain and scull (the dura mater that covers the brain and the cranial nerves), which are infected, pulled, inflamed, stretched, compressed or irritated. Headache sufferers have benefited... (Read More ...)

According to a report in the Drug and Therapeutics Bulletin, a review was done on Herbal remdedies such as black cohosh, red clover, Dong quai, evening primrose oil, ginseng,wild yam extract, chaste tree, hops, sage and kava kava.

Male menopause refers to any noticeable physiological, chemical or hormonal changes experienced by men as they begin to age (usually between the ages of 40 and 55 years.) Because of the symptoms men have reported, researchers think in fact, male menopause does exist. Maybe not at the same level women experience menopause, but more men are speaking about certain changes  they are noticing between those ages mentioned above. By the testosterone levels decreasing, this can leave a man depressed, scared, anxious, moody, lose sexual interest and have problems getting and keeping erections which... (Read More ...)

For any of you who missed the Oprah show recently, the discussion was around bioidentical vs. synthetic hormones.  Menopause is finally a “hot” topic now and getting the attention it deserves. I don’t see shame around it as Oprah was saying, I see ignorance. That is why it is so important for you to educate yourself. We all need to take control of our own health. You are in control of what goes into your body. This is a part of the wisdom of menopause! For many decades, the information for women to be on HRT (hormone replacement therapy) has been up and down.  It’s good,... (Read More ...)

In this economy, stress is already at an all time high. People are just trying to deal with the usual daily ups and downs and now what?  People we know losing jobs, or not being able to find one, life savings disappearing, losing a home, etc. When you catch a cold, what is your body trying to tell you? A new study came out at the Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.  They used 153 healthy volunteers. Their sleep patterns were studied for two weeks prior to being locked into a hotel room for five days.  Then they infected each one with a cold virus. What they found is that the people who... (Read More ...)

Menopause – what is it exactly? For so many years, it has been referred to our symptoms as if menopause is a dis-ease.  It is not!  It is a natural part of life. I feel we have been conditioned to dread it and think it is going to be very unpleasant for us and everyone around us. If that is what we are expecting, then that is how it will be. Menopause is the name given to the time in a woman’s life when she stops menstruating. It is the reverse of puberty. The major physical change is that the ovaries slow down in the production of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. This means the ovaries... (Read More ...)
