Menopause Herbal Treatment

Your menopause herbal treatment is something that can save your sanity and perhaps your marriage : ) There is so much you can do for your natural menopause treatment.

Hormone replacement therapy comes with huge risks, so try a natural treatment for menopause herbal first.

There are many natural herbs that can help hormonal imbalance in women. Many have heard of using black cohash as a natural treatment for menopause. it does work wonders.

I always thought that by living a very healthy lifestyle and eating a healthy diet that I would never suffer from any menopause symptoms. However I did start having hot flashes, especially at night which disturbed my sleep a few times per night. I was not a happy camper. I was used to sleeping straight through the night, now I was waking up, sometimes having a hard time falling back to sleep and feeling tired when I woke up and during the day. This would never do!

I was used to being up and full of energy from morning until night.

I took a menopause herbal treatment of time released black cohash combined with dong quai. The hot flashes stopped right away and I slept like baby, never to experience any more hot flashes!

This is an amazing product called F.E. Formula, for Flash Ease Formula. I have used it to help so many of my clients as well. The key is, that the black cohash is time released so it helps alleviate symptoms for 8 hours, unlike other supplements that don't work or work only very short term.

If you are suffering from menopause and night sweats, this is the perfect product for you. It is easily available in the United States, Canada and many other countries, feel free to

contact me to learn how to order it and receive 30 to 40% off the normal retail price.

If your liver is overworked or you are suffering from adrenal exhaustion you may need more than one supplement for your menopause herbal treatment. Everybody is different. You need to figure out the cause of your symptoms of menopause in order to find the right remedy for you.

Usually you are not getting hot flashes because estrogen is high or low it’s because estrogen fluctuates. Everyone reacts differently when it comes to hormonal imbalance. Black cohash works so well because it balances out these fluctuations.
