Feng Shui Tip for October 18 – ‘World Menopause Day’

Today’s ‘World Menopause Day’ can really get one hot under the collar. If you or anyone you know has cycled into this next season of life then you’ve probably already experienced hot flashes. A great holistic remedy for night sweats, day flashes and other symptoms of menopause can come through a combination of three herbs, all readily available at most health food stores. The first is dong-quai, the second chaste tree and the third is damiana. Most alternative practitioners recommend taking two capsules (or one drop in warm water) once a day at noon. You should you taper off the herbs once the symptoms start to subside. Reduce the amount you take by half for a week and then half of that dosage for another week. Many people tell me that they’ve restored hormonal balance by using this cure, but always check with a qualified practitioner before starting any treatment.
