Daily Feng Shui News for Oct. 18th – ‘World Menopause Day’

Where do I even begin on ‘World Menopause Day?’ Let’s start at the beginning. I’m talking about those days of hot flashes and irritability, mood swings and lack of sleep. Native Americans used black cohosh to effectively improve almost all menopausal symptoms, and to this day, studies show that using this flowering plant helps improves physical and psychological symptoms that include anxiety, night sweats and dryness. Of course and as always, check with a qualified professional before beginning any new medicinal protocol. But if you’re a women currently dealing with any of these symptoms, try this amazing herb — you’ll thank me later.

A Little Humor – Tide With Bleach (Married Ladies Rejoice, lmao!)

Tide With Bleach

Dear Tide:

I’m writing to say what an excellent product you have! I’ve used it since the beginning of my married life, when my Mom told me it was the best. Now that I am older and going through menopause, I find it even better! In fact, about a month ago, I spilled some red wine on my new white blouse.

My unfeeling and uncaring husband started to berate me about how clumsy I was and generally started becoming a pain in the neck. One thing led to another and I ended up with a lot of his blood on my white blouse. I tried to get the stain out using a bargain detergent, but it just wouldn’t come out. After a quick trip to the supermarket, I purchased a bottle of liquid Tide with bleach alternative, and to my surprise and satisfaction, all of the stains came out! In fact, the stains came out so well, that when the detectives who came by yesterday told me that the DNA tests on my blouse were negative and then my attorney called and said that I would no longer be considered a suspect in the disappearance of my husband, it was quite a relief.

I thank you, once again, for having such a great product. Well, gotta go. I have to write a letter to the Hefty bag people…

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.
