I loathe taking any types of medication.
When I was little and there was no inhalers for my asthma, I had to take a few pills every day and most of the time I used to hide it under the cushions in the kitchen. I didnt get better of course, but at least they werent sticking in my throat....
As I get older and the body starts to fall apart, I have realised that some pills I dont have a choice but to take, and some I actually have chosen to take ( like the natural estrogen supplements)
I have to take my thyroid meds first thing in the morning,and thats one small little pill, then after breakfast I take one vitamin D pill and 2 pills that are a herbal estrogen supplement to help me stay calm, cool and collected, to make sure I dont become the crazy snarling bitch that sweats intermittently.

I was crying for no apparent reason, I couldnt sleep as the hot flashes kept me awake at night and well....I was just one miserable cow.
So I ordered some additional herbal supplements (Black Kohosh) that were lacking in the pills I already had, to help with the mood swings and the hot flashes.
Its been three days and my general mood has taken a whole new dimension......I am a different person, I feel more alert and positive and happy. The hot flashes are getting better as well.
Is it possible for the supplements to take effect so quickly? The way I am feeling...I think yes it can.
|Possible side effects?|
Even with side effects ( like a slight woozy headache in the morning) and the fact that I now have to pop a total of 5 pills, I am thrilled that the black kohosh has made a difference to my general well being.
Men have it so much easier, no periods, no giving birth, no hormone imbalance, no menopause..... bastards...
