abdominal bloating

For those of you who are just beginning this wonderful process, here we can narrow down the symptoms and ask questions like "am I starting perimenopause?"

Hi Lisa,

Black cohosh makes me nervous as it rarely can cause liver damage. I had one woman who turned quite yellow and became quite ill with hepatitis caused by this herb.

If you want to augment your dwindling estrogen, if that is what is causing this symptom, try using more whole soy foods such as soy nuts and edamame. There is a supplement called alpha lipoic acid that can quiet creepy crawly nerves on the skin. It's used in fairly high doses for diabetics--the dose for menopause is not known. I'd try 100 mg twice daily.

One HOT Woman!
