Words from our in House Expert:

dr.-dave-bordered.jpgDr. Dave States: This hormonal problem is during the stage of life for the female that is starting to deregulate some of the estrogen circulating in the body.  Light progesterone creams seem to lessen the waves of flashes within the body during this change in hormones.  Feeding the overall endocrine system is essential to making a safe passage to the next stage of life.  Remember it is an essential and natural change in the womans body.
