Hot flashes were the worst. I had a Japanese fan that I kept near at hand....we called it my lifesaver!

I beg to differ Julie. Show me the studies that prove that BHRT is dangerous. HRT definately is.

HRT is dangerous whether it is "pharmaceutical" or "bio-identical". I am disappointed that this video seems to be promoting yet more pharmaceutical drugs. I think it is better to find out what vitamins and minerals women become more deficient in at menopause and take suppliments for those. Giving up caffiene is also a good thing to do until the hot flashes subside, which they do after a few years. There are some good herbal suppliments that also help with hot flashes, such as Estroven, which contains Black Cohosh and several other herbs. Much safer than pharmaceutical drugs or HRT of any kind.

Caffeine is really bad for bringing on or increasing the intensity of the hot flash. Also bad for me are ginger and garlic, and other spices like pepper (the hot peppers are definitely out!). Nothing seems to take the hot flash away, but for the most part I can minimize the intensity by avoiding these things. As time goes on, my list might grow larger - every day is now a new adventure as I try to cope with the hot flashes!
