I have been having hot flashes, night sweats, and moodiness after a partial hysterectomy.
Q. Dear Terry, “I had a partial hysterectomy back in 2007. Since then, I have been having hot flashes, night sweats, and moodiness. Is there anything I can take to relieve some of these symptoms?” — Julia G., Dallas, TX
A. Dear Julia, I would recommend taking a complex of hop cone, pomegranate, and black cohosh extracts to help fight the symptoms (hot flashes, night sweats, mood, etc.) that you are experiencing. While each botanical in this blend is a strong contender in its own right, I find they are much stronger in combination. This complex of herbs also has additional benefits – it supports bone health, cardiovascular function and weight loss – additional health concerns faced by many women. I recommend taking 2 capsules of this combination daily.
When choosing a formula, make sure to look for one that features standardized extracts. And when it comes to black cohosh – make sure it is standardized to 2.5% triterpene glycosides, as this is the type of extract that was used in black cohosh research.
