Natural remedy for hot flushes
One of the most talked about symptom of the menopause is hot flushes. Hot flushes can occur at any moment, causing facial burning and tingling, and even sweat that drenches your entire body. They can occur at night, interrupting your sleep, resulting in headaches, tiredness, and irritability.
Women around the world for centuries have used black cohosh and sage to provide comfort and relief from hot flushes.

St John’s Wort is a herbal remedy known for lifting mood and is often referred to as a natural antidepressant. It activates serotonin, the "feel good" chemical in the brain, working towards lifting your spirits.

Physical activities such as aerobic conditioning or strength training will increase bone density, protecting you against osteoporosis and can keep the hot flushes away for up to 24 hours. Meditation and yoga are also a great way of managing the symptoms of menopause.
