If You're Going through Menopause

Don't Sweat it!

While up to 75% to 85% of menopausal women experience hot flushes, night sweats, or other bothersome symptoms, as little as 10% to 30% rely on conventional approaches for relief—and with good reason.

The health concerns associated with conventional hormone therapies—such as those associated with breast health—are well documented, and this has caused many women to think they have to suffer living with their symptoms. If you are one of these women, then I hope you read on about an all-natural breakthrough that may help you—without adding strong hormones into your body.

First, let me help you understand the changes that are going on inside your body—so that you may better understand the solution. During menopause, your hormones are continually fluctuating not only in their levels, but also in their ratios with one another. That is, the balance between the hormones estrogen, progesterone, and others can become out of balance, leading to undesirable symptoms.

But there is more. The hormone estrogen can form different metabolites inside the body. Some of these metabolites are very potent (potentially harmful), while others are weaker (protective). A healthy ratio of weaker to more potent estrogen metabolites is important for maintaining breast tissue health.

Fortunately, hormone balance can be achieved during menopause in women who feel out of balance. Specific natural ingredients have been scientifically demonstrated to address the body's own metabolism of hormones. A formula containing natural phytoestrogens—plant-derived compounds that have weak (safer) estrogenic activity—targeted B vitamins, and the herbs turmeric and rosemary, can help to promote the right balance of hormones that many menopausal women need.
In fact, a formula providing the nutrients mentioned above has been shown in a clinical trial of 25 menopausal women to:

• Relieve hot flushes and night sweats
• Improve self-reported quality of life, including mood swings
• Promote a healthy estrogen metabolite ratio, which supports breast tissue health

If you are experiencing menopausal symptoms, ask me about a healthy, all-natural approach to relief. You don't need to sweat it out through menopause!
