Experiencing Sporadic Night Sweats
by our Health Guru

Question:
"I'm age 46 and have begun to experience sporadic night sweats. Some more severe than others. Is there anything I can take to help ease my pre-menopause symptoms and does soy milk help?"

our Health Guru's Answer:
If you are otherwise healthy, adding phytoestrogens to your diet could easily help your pre-menopausal symptoms. Have you stopped menstruating altogether? Did your mother experience an early menopause? If yes, then start by adding red clover, chaste berry and soy isoflavones. Do not underestimate the benefit of dietary phytoestrogens.

Also, do not neglect exercise and avoid plastic wrap and be wary of environmental toxins such as insecticides, all of which can wreck havoc on your body's natural hormone cycles.
