  • No but if you find something that works, let me know.  I'm tired of waking up every night swimming in sweat.

  • I take Black Cohosh and eat at least one serving of good soy (organic soymilk, tofu, edemame, etc.) every day.

  • I work for a wellness company with a solid reputation for 20+ years that promotes Black Cohosh as well. Let me know if that works for you too.

  • Thanks Ladies I will give that a try. Has anyone ever heard of Fish Oil with I think it's EPA or something like that?

  • For me my Chemo is giving me these on top of everything else! I heard for your bedroom temp. to keep it at 64 degrees. Make sure your fully hydrated. As for extra supplements. I can't take any.. I'm Sorry. I wish you didn't have to go through this all too! Healing, cooling hugs for You!!
