So, if you’re not a menopausal woman whose deepest desire is for someone to invent a stylish hat with an inbuilt fridge, you can probably look away now. For those of you still with me, if the bain of your life is hot flushes (flashes for the American contingent), I think I’ve found something that will help.
I’m a huge fan of acupuncture because I’ve never had anything that it couldn’t treat (except a polyp in my colon but that required someone chopping bits out of me) and my current acupuncturist knows pretty much all there is to know about Chinese herbology. Bearing this in mind I asked her what she could recommend for hot flushes as it’s currently over 30 degrees here and several times a day I feel as though my head could, quite literally, explode.
This is what she came up with and 3 days in, guess what? It works!!!!!
Take the rind of a watermelon (you can just eat the flesh – that’s what I did ;O) ), chop it up and leave it to stew in a cup of hot water for a few minutes and then drink. It’s that simple; hot flushes are now down to one or two a day as opposed to one or two an hour.
Thought I’d share this with you, my fellow sufferers, let me know if it works.
Have a good one
