I woke up one morning at age 58, and my bed was wet, fully saturated with sweat. With no warning, menopause had begun in my life. Oh no. So I started my search for the non-prescription answer. I found Flax seeds ground up in a coffee bean grinder was the most effective plant-based estrogen.
So, I started every morning placing two tablespoons of flax seed in my coffee bean grinder to turn it into ground flax seed. I did not want to take the time to mix the ground flaxseed into yogurt or peanut butter, so I take multiple spoon fulls, chasing each spoon full with water until all the ground flax seed is gone.
Before bed, I also take over the counter supplement, Black Cohosh, another plant-based estrogen. The combination of these two has stopped my night sweats.
