Herbs and Menopausal Flushes (US: flashes)
Flushless Tonic – Herbal HRT
Dear Mr. Hopking, I would like to order more Flushless tonic. I do feel it has helped. I’m not quite menopausal yet but am definitely heading that way and my main symptoms have been palpitations and also itchy skin, both of which have improved since taking the tonic. I do notice that if I’ve been away and haven’t taken any with me for a week or so, those symptoms are more in evidence. So, thank you, of your help.
All best wishes, Ursula
Menopause and Flushes
Herbal Medicine to treat the causes and symptoms of Menopause
For many menopause is a psychological, emotional, and intellectual turning point, as well as a physical one. But it need not be a decline. Alan Hopking’s FlushLess herbal tonic for menopausal symptoms has been remarkably successful over the years. It is estimated to have a record 99% success rate.
What does this mean?
Hormonal changes at menopause greatly vary between individuals, some start this change at an early age (smokers), others have their normal menstrual period past fifty-five and then it begins. Some have few hot flushes others are stripping off on and off through the day. Night flushes can affect some while others have no problems when sleeping. There can be major or minor or no mood swings. This can be testing to a relationship.
Other common symptoms
Common symptoms include depression, tiredness, lack of libido, headaches, backache, urinary frequency, dryness, spotting (possible fibroids – see our tonic for fibroids), painful breasts, irritability and stress, poor concentration and memory, weepiness even for the most demure and at any time and for the most gentle of reasons. Along with this the bones will gradually lose some of their density. Skin, hair, nails, eyes, mouth, and gums undergo changes. Blood flow reduced to the skin and subcutaneous tissues contributes to the loss of skin firmness and shrinkage of underlying muscles. Deterioration of nerve endings in the ageing skin can lead to itchiness – a condition called formication; it can feel like insects crawling across or under the skin or an intense tingling.
Hello Alan, The Flushless tonic had a miraculous effect literally overnight, in 2012; the hot flushes stopped and my mood swings and energy levels were vastly improved, my husband told everyone how brilliant it was! I stopped taking Flushless last November (2017) and definitely feel the difference with lower levels of energy and some hot flushes, but luckily for me, these are very mild.
With many thanks, Moya Wall
Why is all this happening?
Obviously these are signs of the conclusion of the reproductive life. Its maximum time is normally about four years, but I know patients in their 70s with some of the symptoms. Oestrogen (or better still follicle-stimulating hormone) in the blood is the test to find out if there is a decreased oestrogen level in the body (although the symptoms may be sufficient evidence). All the symptoms above are due to reduced oestrogen in the body. Even a lot of heart problems from angina to palpitations and shortness of breath on exertion have been linked to low oestrogen in menopausal women – for this a gentle, regular exercise program will be helpful.
Attitude of mind and the next step
Throughout this time a positive attitude should be developed and maintained. Think of how you can improve your skills and creativity. Perhaps you can take that higher educational course you’ve always wanted to do? The oestrogen? Leave that to the FlushLess Tonic. It will help to support the changes you go through in a balanced way. There is Agnus Castus berry which stimulates and regulates pituitary gland function, and Wild Yam root so well known for their powerful hormonal normalizing action. Sage leaf for its action on sweats, reducing them or eliminating them altogether when backed up by the other female herbs in the mixture. Included are herbs from China: Dong Gui root (a species of Angelica) so good for oestrogen rebalance and regulating the heart; Rehmannia root also useful for the brain and pains; Lotus leaf – good for sweating and mood swings; Black Cohosh root reduces breast pains and stress; Bugleweed herb helps to calm the heart and regulate thyroid function which can be disturbed in the change. Other herbs help to restore the balance of the other symptoms mentioned. The tonic is easy to take and can be adapted to your individual needs, e.g. 1tsp 1-6 times daily. Below are other tonics you can take at the same time as required.
We deal with this subject seperately although there is an obvious link with the menopause problem of symptoms. Read about oestrogen dominance and see how it is treated with herbal medicines.
Letters from women who have used FlushLess Tonic:
I was taking HRT for 7 years and wanted to stop primarily because my mother had died at an early age of breast cancer.
After stopping HRT the hot flushes and other symptoms returned with a vengence. After starting your tonic for flushes the hot flushes are now minimal and I experience little or no other menopausal symptoms. I feel wonderful!
Another thing, since puberty I had suffered migraine headaches and was unable to drink red wine. The tonic appears to have helped 100% with the migraines and I now drink and enjoy red wine!! Thank you so much.
I am a 48 yr old woman who has been suffering from menopausal symptoms since my early 40s. These were severe hot flushes, joint pains, emotional and stress problems, etc., etc. I did not want to take traditional HRT so struggled on day and night felling dreadfull all the time, despite taking various health food shop pills, soya foods, etc., etc.
I began taking the “FlushLess Tonic” and after only 3 weeks I couldn’t believe the change in how I felt. My hot flushes had reduced rapidly, the joints pains greatly reduced, my emotions and sleep altered to a more normal pattern. I couldn’t believe the dramatic change in how I felt. It’s six months since I began taking this tonic and I can live my life almost forgetting that I’m going through the menopause.
If it wasn’t for the FlushLess Tonic I guess I would have been forced to accept defeat and take HRT with all its possible side effects. I recommend the tonic to any woman suffering from the menopause. It’s brilliant!
Update from Jan : Alan, as you know, I’m still taking your herbs and take advantage of your generous low-price offer for the 2.22L size. To be honest, if I don’t have FlushLess I become like a mad woman!!
Yes I am taking the medicines. Smaller doses but more often – if I am busy and out of the house a lot I am even brave enough to take the full dose in one hit! I haven’t had even a minor flush for some days now which is great…
Best regards, Louise.
Creams that help with menopause
Good morning Alan, Thank you for the wonderful order you sent us,,,here is some feedback on the creams … The Vitex and Wild Yam for the dryness and to restore youthfulness, is an absolute winner and works a hundred percent thank you.
The Vitex, Yam and Comfrey for the BARCODE upperlip ALSO works very well and we are exceedingly happy with it.
Mariette and friends, Portugal.
Update 2 years later from Mariette in Portugal: Greetings Alan, I feel so much more alive using this cream. The most significant thing for me is that the bar code on my upper lip most assuredly diminishes if not disappearing alltogether..in the almost one week that I was without it, those lines appeared again with aggression,,,,can you believe this???? I can vouch for it that when I apply this cream directly on my upper lip and thus feeding it with the combination to satisfy both hormones, the results are astonishing to say the least…..please never stop making it and make sure you have a successor with the same formula please? My deepest thanks for your eagerness to have studied herbal medicine,,,you have changed the lives of many, many people for the better. God bless you in all that you do as you stay in His wondrous stuff of creation.
All the best
