Lost - questions about non-HRT remedies for symptoms

I found this website a couple of weeks ago and have been coming back to read alot of the posts. I had my surgery in 1990. I have felt really good until last year when my doctor wanted me to get weaned off the Premarin that I have been taking since surgery. Now I am really lost as to what I should do for the hot flashes, night sweats, and sleepless nights. I am taking a soy supplement which I suppose is helping some what. I have read a bit about the books this site has and wonder even after all this time which one would be best for me to start out with. I wish I had found this site sooner.

There's a recipe for a hot flash cocktail on the homepage of the Hormone Jungle Perhaps that would help. Do check with your doctor to be sure the supplements are okay for you to take.

Lost - questions about non-HRT remedies for symptoms

about 2 months after my surgery my hot flashes seemed unending and much more intense than before. the two supplements that seem to be suggested the most for hot flashes and night sweats are soy and black cohosh. at the beginning of february i started taking the over the counter supplement estroven. it has both soy, black cohosh and some vitamins. after several weeks my hot flashes have lessened and are less often. there are other similar products out there along with just straight soy or black cohosh in the vitamin supplement aisle of almost any store. good luck!

Thanks for the info. My primary doctor doesnt want me to take any black cohosh. I am not sure if it is because I am still taking some Premarin (one .3 every third day) or not. I will see her the end of March and will ask her.
