I have been having hot flushes for nearly 3 years now. I have tried all sorts of remedies - Black Cohosh, Primrose Evening Oil, Serenity Cream - and they seem to work for a little while but then they stop working. Someone suggested sage and I bought some but sadly I could not take them because they were in capsule form and contain gelatine. I am a vegetarian and I will not take gelatine. I have also put on a lot of weight in the last 2 years and I cannot seem to lose it. Do you have any advice for me?
