I had read my Natural Alternatives to HRT book from cover to cover and had promised myself that I would sail through the menopause without any problems the natural way.
I am vegetarian and don't eat very much dairy.
I stepped up the soya a little and took the occasional glucosamine sulphate.
I suddenly noticed about two years ago that my periods had stopped and, as far as I am aware, the only symptom I've had is the occasional warm feeling flooding my body, which is great, since I feel the cold very badly and suffer from Raynaud's!
Otherwise, no problems at all.
