Stop Hot Flashes and Night Sweats Naturally!
by Lorna Vanderhaeghe
Drug manufacturers of Premarin and Prempro have been told to put a strong warning on the label about the increased risk of cancer and heart disease. In July 2002 the Women's Health Initiative study, a clinical trial designed to determine if Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), a combination of synthetic estrogen and progestins, was beneficial to healthy women, was halted due to serious safety concerns. This study involving 16,608 healthy, postmenopausal women concluded that the combination of estrogen and progestins caused a 41 percent increase in the risk of stroke, a 29 percent increase in the risk of heart attack, a doubled risk of blood clots, a 22 percent increase in cardiovascular disease and a 26 percent increase in the risk of invasive breast cancer. Now, caring physicians and hundreds of thousands of Canadian women are looking for alternatives to HRT.
What Do European Doctors Know that North American Docs Don't?
European doctors have been recommending herbal solutions to menopausal symptoms for decades and the research is very clear they are safer and just as effective in 80 percent of users. MENOSMART PLUSTM contains herbs that can halt hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings, lower cholesterol, improve vaginal dryness and much more.
Dong Quai is an effective treatment for the symptoms of menopause, especially hot flashes, as well as painful menstruation, lack of menstruation (spotting but no full blood flow), and will relieve too frequent menstruation (more than one menstrual cycle per month). In menstruating women it is also recommended for treating infertility.
Chasteberry (0.6% Acubine) Vitex, is effective in the balancing of hormones and has been traditionally used for the treatment of menstrual abnormalities, PMS, and menopausal complaints. It is especially important for women who are estrogen dominant with conditions including endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts, fibrocystic breasts and to improve the progesterone to estrogen ratio.
Black Cohosh (2mg of triterpene glycosides measured as 27-deoxyacteine) Black cohosh is the most researched herb for the treatment of the symptoms of menopause and replacement for standard hormone replacement therapy (estrogen and progestins). Effective in the treatment of the following perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms: hot flashes, profuse perspiration, headaches, heart palpitations, depression, PMS, dysmenorrhea (painful menstruation), sleep disturbances, vaginal atrophy (thinning of the vagina causing painful intercourse), vaginal dryness, nervousness, irritability and loss of concentration.
Sage Leaf - The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in the European Union recently approved 300 mg of sage as a treatment for excessive perspiration associated with menopause and in the United Kingdom, medical herbalists treat menopausal women suffering hot flashes and night sweats with sage. The sage in Menosmart Plus is not an alcohol extract or an oil. The safety studies for long term use of the full herb (i.e longer than one year) are excellent. In studies, 300 mg of sage does not cause elevated heart rate or blood pressure.
Gamma-oryzanol isolated from rice bran oil is used for the treatment of hot flashes and to enhance pituitary function and promote endorphin release by the hypothalamus thereby improving mood. Not only is it a very effective substance for alleviating menopausal symptoms but it also lowers triglycerides and total cholesterol.
Hesperidin, a potent flavonoid, improves the vascular system and our capillaries thereby improving cardiovascular health and reduction of bruising. It has also been shown to reduce hot flashes and night time leg cramps.
Two capsules at breakfast and two capsules at bedtime or as directed by a health care practitioner.
