Having passed a certain age, many women experience hot flushes, linked to the variations in the concentration of oestrogen in the blood. Hot flushes can appear before the menopause or they can continue for a few months afterwards. And they never come as a welcome surprise, with most of us reacting in the same ways: in frustration and exasperation. Hormone replacement treatment (HRT) is often recommended in such cases, but nature is also on your side with these natural plant-based infusions.
