Menopause is not a pleasant time for women, and I can personally understand this. But, I have found some relief to my menopause symptoms with tea.
During menopause a woman's level of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone start to decline. And, you can clearly see how it affects our mental and physical state of mind by our constant changing mood swings, and hot flashes.
For instance, I can be happy one minute and an absolute nightmare the next LOL. There are times when I feel like I'm in the middle of a tropical island surrounded by hundreds of other people yet the sun has chosen me as the one person to cast its hot rays on. Sometimes, my hot flashes are so sudden that I feel like I'm standing in an igloo wearing a bikini asking why is it so hot in here?! And are you like me that sleeps with a fan blowing directly on me with the windows open during some of the coldest nights because it feels like it's actually a summer evening?
Thank goodness I have personally found some relief to my menopause symptoms with tea and, unbeknownst to me, tea has been used for many years in the treatment of menopausal symptoms. Here are a few of my favorites.
Black cohosh is an herb with the ability to treat a majority of menopause symptoms and can be found in tea or tablets. I personally use the tablets and, it has helped with my hot flashes.

Ginger root, a great herb to steep as a tea, and it helps to relieve my hot flashes and night sweats. It is also very good with a touch of honey either hot or cold.
Peppermint is a wonderful and soothing herbal tea. It improves my mood and helps relieve abdominal gas and bloating. Peppermint
Tulsi Detox tea is an herbal blend with all the ingredients for a cleansing and soothing affect on my mind and body. It is refreshing, invigorating, and relaxing.
Menopause has also affected my sleep. I feel restless and anxious trying to fall asleep. Egyptian Chamomile tea, an herb that has been around for ages, helps me sleep better because of its calming and relaxing properties. It is a good and natural sleep aid.
While none of us can avoid or prevent menopause, we sure can try to ease the affects, and the mood swings we experience. Try a cup of tea. It's worked wonders for me.
Enjoy your time with tea!
