    Losing weight, menopause and hot flushes

    Anyone got any natural remedies for hot flushes

    I am aware that my weight doesn't help but I thought I would ask if anyone knows anything natural I can eat etc to help with the hot flushes

    I've been taking sage tablets from the health food shop. They work fantastically. Another method that worked for my friend is the menopause cake. I've not needed it yet as I'm still in the early stages but she swore by it. She would make it in a loaf tin. Slice it and freeze it. You just eat a slice per day. Just google menopause cake and you'll find lots of recipes but they're essentially the same thing

    I suffered/suffer with flushes, since I lost a bit of weight though they do seem much improved, I hope when I shed the rest of my fat suit they will bugger off completely

    Below is my regime in a nutshell. I find it easy to follow & it keeps me at a healthy & good looking weight. I dont see it as a diet, it’s more of a lifestyle, which is important as diets never last.

    Drink plenty of water
    Have purechimp super tea once a day
    Eat healthily in the week & enjoy treats at the weekend
    Pick brown over white for grains
    Exercise at least 3 times a week

    We all know how to eat healthily it’s just finding a way that works for you. I have found the regime above takes minimal effort.
