Natural remedies for symptoms

I am taking estradiol 2 mg daily. My hysterectomy was almost six months ago. I am having trouble managing mood swings, sleeping problems and water retention. I have started walking a few miles daily and have been making better choices in my diet. I was an assistant principal in a school that was closed due to low enrollment (found out the week after my surgery and had to go back to work much sooner than I should have), so I have the added stress of closing a school that I loved and having no job or medical coverage. I was hoping that when summer came, I would be able to take better care of myself and would start to feel better, but so far changes are tiny. I am looking for any information about vitamins or herbal treatments that you have found effective and that won't interfere with the hrt. Thank you! I feel like I am losing my mind...

Re: Natural remedies for symptoms

You might need to add some progesterone to keep that unopposed estrogen from creating symptoms like water retention, excitability, etc... it will also help with sleep.

I'm afraid I know of NO natural herbal treatments that can eliminate symptoms of surgical menopause. I think they're helpful to women in natural menopause who are still producing up to 40% of the hormones they had pre-menopause. There is a list on this site under resources that gives you vitamin and mineral supplementation requirements/suggestions.

Thanks Calypso, I was thinking the same thing about the progesterone after the research I had done. Because of your response I feel empowered to suggest that to my doctor. Blessed be.
