I went through menopause 10 years ago, the last month I'm having short bursts of hot flushes! No energy, little appetite, my pep has gone! Always tired, and it is awful! It's nowhere near as bad as it was! But hope it doesn't get worse..

I'm also going through hot flashes and skipped periods at 46 years of age. I think that medicinal treatments may be very helpful for some women in the short term, otherwise there's a lot that you can do by changing your eating habits, more exercise (even walking) and de-stressing. There are many remedies to try (choose a good therapist), like Cimicifuga racemosa, Rhodiola rosea and Gynostemma pentaphyllum for hot flashes. In general you'll need more magnesium and calcium too. Keep searching for the right team to support you through this challenging phase. All the best to all of you..
