Has anyone tried this, did it help?
I have started taking black kohosh, but don't feel any difference. Hot flushes still on, sleepless niggts, foggy brain.
However, I am doing exercise classes almost daily: cycling, weight resistance, body combat, circuit training.....I think those are helpful for muscles, bones keep my weight under control....and helping my mind. Hard work though....
I'm tired just reading your message! I need to take some inspiration from your exercise regime!
I didn't find that black cohosh helped me, but I know other women do, and it was one of the herbal remedies my GP suggested when she told me I couldn't have HRT. I often wonder if I didn't give it long enough to work - perhaps there's a tolerance level that has to build up for it to be effective? I'm guessing! I gave up after six months or so.
If you have a look at the messages on the forum from the last two Ask Me Anything events with Nicky Williams and Maryon Stewart, there are recommendations for menopause supplements that you may find more useful. 😀
I tried it but didn't think it did much although I do use Sage and have found that helps with the night sweats, it doesn't get rid of them but I'm not waking up soaked. Have you ever tried this?
Tried the Black Cohosh and sage mix and this works much better.
I am trying Femmetrinol at the moment and that has been really good. Less and infrequent hot flushes. Also using the day and night cooling sprays which help.I always spray my pillows with lavender at night and this gives me a good 4 hours sleep.
My Dr also suggested a couple of Kalms at night would help.
Hope this helps.
Good news for you @cazita1.
Thanks for sharing! ☺
It didn’t do a thing for me or sage by itself.
Hi @Misty071264 ,
Isn't it one of the most frustrating things about the menopause and trying to get on top of your symptoms? We all look for and come up with all sorts of options, and try all sorts of things to get some relief. Sometimes the supplements or treatments we find work well and other times, as you say, they do nothing for you but work for someone else! I used to get so fed up trying a new product, or another medicine or supplement , and getting nowhere with it! I kept trying though!
I’m finally taking HRT, and that has helped enormously. Not symptom free but a massive difference.
Have you managed to find something that does work for you? 😊
