Warm Up with a Blanket, Not Hot Flashes
Warming up with a blanket and a good book is one thing, warming up with hot flashes and night sweats is something else entirely. A natural way to fend off the symptoms of perimenopause and menopause is with Remifemin® menopause and perimenopause relief†.
Whether you don’t feel ready for hormone replacement therapy (HRT), or you’re looking for a natural alternative for the treatment of perimenopause or menopause symptoms, the RemiSure™ black cohosh in Remifemin has been tried, tested, and trusted with almost 50 years of clinical research behind it.†
One of the main differences you’ll notice when you use natural products is that they work differently. For instance, the benefits from Remifemin appear over time, and although some women see a reduction in their symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, and mood swings in as little as two weeks, it’s best to give these supplements at least 6 weeks of consistent use for the best results.†
If you want your thermostat and not your body to feel like it’s setting the temperature, there are things you can do in addition to taking Remifemin:
For perimenopause symptoms, too†
- Wear cool cotton or special moisture-wicking pajamas. You may be tempted to go heavier at first if you feel a bit chilly in the evening, but staying light can help you avoid night sweats.
- Keep a pitcher or glass of water near your bed or on your nightstand.
- Avoid caffeine in the afternoon and early evenings—it will boost your chances of relaxing at night. Plus, caffeine can have an ability to rev up our systems overall, too, which doesn’t always mesh well with stable, even moods.
- Any fan of spicy food knows it can really raise your internal temperature. Although on some blustery days that might seem like a good idea, it’s probably best to avoid spicy snacks if night sweats and hot flashes are a concern.
Maybe you’re feeling a bit young for “menopause relief” but seem to have some of the symptoms nonetheless. You’re not alone. Many women in their late 30s and early 40s experience symptoms of hormonal changes, including hot flashes, night sweats and occasional sleeplessness, but still have regular periods. This doesn’t mean you’re experiencing early menopause, but it may mean you could be in perimenopause. The first part of the word, “peri” simply means “around,” so—“around menopause.”
It’s understandable that nobody wants to think about menopause. The fact is, some menopause symptoms do begin showing themselves well before menstruation ends. And, if some of the symptoms of menopause haven’t waited for you, there are some things you can do about it.
You’ll notice results
Even though menopause symptoms can be stubborn, and it may seem like they take time to get under control, it’s important to remember that menopause is not marked by a straight decline of estrogen production. There are peaks and valleys, and menopause symptoms may also increase and decrease before disappearing entirely.
Sticking with Remifemin can help. Most women notice relief when taking 40 mg of Remifemin—one tablet in the morning and one in the evening—the recommended level.† The important thing is to stay with it. Benefits can take anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks (at the outside) to be fully noted. But when you start feeling more like yourself again, and less like menopause or perimenopause symptoms are calling the shots, you’ll appreciate the natural support only Remifemin can provide.†
