    Hi, I've just started to get hot flushes, around one every hour, my last period was due 2 weeks ago, I'm 49, I'm guessing this is the start of menopause. Will my periods return and will taking Ginseng or St Johns Wort work. Thankyou

      Hi Sarah Missing periods are often one of the first signs that you are approaching the menopause and hot flushes can appear at this time too, you are in the average age range 45-55 so it is possible. Periods at this time can come and go for a while or they can just stop, unfortunately, it is difficult to say how yours will unfold as it is different for every woman! If you have low mood/anxiety that can often be helped by St Johns Wort and Ginseng is used to help support the nervous system which is often under pressure when the hormones start to change. However, I don't recommend both together. You may find our Sage tablets helpful for the flushes.

      Hi Sandra Joint pain is a very common symptom in the menopause as falling oestrogen levels can affect the hydration of the joints, causing inflammation and pain. You may find Devil's Claw and Arnica Gel helpful. Check your diet too, as caffeine, high salt and sugar foods and processed foods can all irritate the joints further. I have made a short video on joint health in the menopause and what you can do to help yourself, so do take a look if you can. http://www.avogel.co.uk/health/menopause/eileens-blog/2015/12/a-vogels-menopause-mondays-joint-aches-pains/

    Sage and soya are source of vegetal oestrogens and should not be used by women in remission or at risk of developing a hormonal-related cancer (breast, ovarian, etc.)

      Hi Clare, Thank you for your comment. To take your points separately: 1. Sage was once considered to be oestrogenic in its effect, but the most recent research has shown this not to be the case. A.Vogel has researched this tirelessly, in order to be certain of our recommendations to women at risk of oestrogen-sensitive cancers. 2. Fermented soya is the form in which soya is traditionally present in Eastern diets, and Menopause Support contains fermented soya isoflavones. Intake of fermented soya isoflavones has been studied by the European Food Safety Authority to assess its safety for perimenopausal and post-menopausal women. They concluded that: • The human data did not show increased risk of breast cancer, nor of an effect on mammographic density, nor on proliferation in breast tissue. • No effect was found on endometrial thickness and no histopathological changes were seen in the uterus after 30 months of supplementation with 150mg daily of soy isoflavones. EFSA Journal 2015; 13 (10): 4246 I would just add that the dose of isoflavones in Menopause Support is a third of the amount in this study. Also, we advise women to avoid any supplement that would cause them anxiety, as this would be counter-productive to any benefits that the remedy supplied. I hope that reassures you, Clare, but please do let me know if you require any further information.
