I’m a sweater too …except in addition to being 40 and having hot flashes, I also have thyroid disease.   We’re having our ceremony at 5 pm (in hopes that it won’t be hot) and that is also part of the reason we’re getting married in September (instead of the middle of summer).

I’m sure you’ll look gorgeous, sweat and all!

I think I’ve just started having hot flashes.  Not sure.  This is also my fear.

When I started getting hot flashes, I started doing lots of research (I am a biologist BTW). For me, the natural approach has worked beautifully. I take Omega Fatty Acid supplements and vitamin E and D – all are important for the formation of steroid hormones. Progesterone cream, which is available OTC, does wonders. Rub a dime size glob on an area with realitively thin skin, like inner thigh, arm, etc. I also take DHEA (available at vitacost.com), 50 mg. time-released (very important that it is time released) which helps the adrendal glands take up the slack.

I have not had a period for two years now and my little protocol has worked wonders for the past 4 years. Everyone of my friends with menopausal symptoms that has used my protocol has thanked me. None of us would every take Premarian because of the cruel treatment of female horses for the production of the drug.
