How many drops of black cohosh do you take and how many times a day?WhiteAsh wrote:Hi, everyone.
I came upon this forum when doing on a search on "herbals and menopause." It came as a real suprise to me to read Brynne's post and her links on "Soy."
What a disappointment - and how frightening, in a way, it was for me to read the links Brynne referred us to about the possibly harmful effects of soy products.
I have been taking two supplements for menopause recently, one of which contains Black Cohosh and the other of which contains Soy Standardized Extract and isoflavones. The HOT FLASHES I was experiencing stopped completely after taking these two products regularly for about four days. What I did get, though, was very sore breasts and some moodiness which I am not sure is attributable to PMS (my FSH is 43, so I may still get a period or two) or to the black cohosh and/or the soy supplement. I haven't had a period since January and the hot flashes and night sweats started in earnest right about that time.
I got desperate and started taking the above-mentioned supplements, never thinking they'd have such an immediate affect on the hot flashes and night sweats.
My thoughts were that I had discovered a real goldmine in these supplements and that others could benefit in knowing that relief could be had "safely" and naturally. I guess, after reading the articles on soy's safety - or lack thereof - I was dead wrong.
Thanks for listening - and sharing any thoughts you all might have on the matter. Happy Easter to everyone.
