I have been off my bio-identical hormones for 8 months or so. I have been having some issues recently. Burning mouth, dry mouth, hot flashes, overall irritability and sleeping well some nights but not others. I think it might have been triggered by the Holidays and too much sugar.
I had acupuncture this week and have started taking magnesium at bedtime. Last night I pulled out Goddesses Never Age by Dr. Christiane Northrup. I opened up to page 248.

Here goes I am committing to 30 days with out sugar, gluten and alcohol.
