Hey all you 40-some female nurses out there--does ANYONE know of any herbal or other product that is a good alternative for HRT (Prempro, etc)? Something that REALLY works! Having "hot flashes" at work--say, in the middle of a code--is a real bummer--extra stress that I just don't need right now, affecting my job performance, emotional state, ability to think, and interrupting what little sleep I do get in between night shifts. Do NOT want to take HRT, because of cancer risk (first-degree relative with breast cancer). So please, suggestions anyone? Thanxxx!
