A Hot Flash Update

| April 17, 2010 | 1 Comment

They’re gone! It’s been about 2 weeks since I had a hot flash!

There’s one other weapon in my fighting hot flash arsenal that I added to my routine since my last hot flash update . That wonderful weapon is Wheat Grass. No, not the real, freshly ground, taste like lawn clippings wheat grass (I have a hard time finding a steady supply in my area).

I chose to use the substitute and bought wheat grass tablets. The ones I used were made by Pines. I chose that brand because I liked their ingredient list. It contained 98% wheat grass, 1.5% silica and 0.5% magnesium stearate. The other brands were 95% or less wheat grass and had a few too many ingredients for me.

Pill Popping to Extinguish the Flashes

Not being a stranger to wheat grass, I knew that it had the power to provide the final knock out blow to the already weakened hot flashes. After a couple of days of adding wheat grass to the mix, the hot flashes disappeared.

I can’t say that the wheat grass was absolutely necessary to get rid of the hot flashes, but it sure didn’t hurt. In addition to getting rid of the hot flashes, it also got rid of a bunch of other stuff (I won’t be gauche, so I’ll just say that my system is rather clean).

Family Pill Popping

Wheat grass in pill form is a lot easier to consume. My family would run for the hills when they used to hear the squeaking grinding sound of my juicer masticating the fresh wheat grass blades. They also couldn’t stand the smell, much less attempt to swallow a shot of it. With the pills, they swallow them and don’t complain. Anything is better than drinking fresh what grass (or so they think).

Anyway, if you are suffering from hot flashes and are looking for a way to get rid of them, give it a try. If it worked for me, I would think it would work for you. No longer do I run around the house saying, “Is it hot in here, or is it just me?”
