Too late for me - my hot flashes which were never that bad are over - but good to know!

I'm not sure if this has been touched on before, but here goes and I apologise if it has.

After trying all kinds of prescribed meds and also Black Cohosh to try and get my hot flashes under control, a friend in the UK recommended I try soy milk, or soy in some form. I'm all for trying things that mean I'm not throwing chemicals into my body, so I thought 'what the hell, I'll give it a go'.

I'm pleased to report back that after drinking 2 cups of soy milk everyday for the past month, my inner child has stopped playing with matches :) Also another added benefit I found which made me want to share was, that after a recent well woman check up, my cholesterol level has dropped from the high to just barely above normal and my blood pressure is where it should be.

My doctor told me that doing this was a lot more of a healthy path than taking premarin or any of the other meds that are out there and has given her seal of approval to continuing with this. So, if you're at your wits end with the hot flashes that seem to come with this time of our lives, give it a try; check with your doctor first if you're on any other meds though to make sure it's right for you :)
