Wild yam and black cohosh, and heath &heather nightime blend herb tea! Cotton sheets and a very light duvet with a celluar banket on top so you can strip off the layers!

I've found Aromatherapy, Yoga and Accupuncture helpful,amoungst other things, but its personal preference, and experience. A good book on the subject is 'Your change your choice' the integrated approach, by Michael Dooley and Sarah Stacey.

soya milk is good for the hot flushes. And my client has found that Reflexology has really helped her mood swings.

My sister is going through the menopause and once a week she comes to me for a Craniosacral Therapy session. She swears that it has helped her cool down, relax, become less stressed and she can now get a good nights sleep.

George, That's interesting. I will have to look that up (never heard of it). Thanks again. Debbie :)

What about supplements? Evening primrose oil combined with a multi vit/mineral is brilliant. Also, acupuncture for hormonal imbalance
