Just what is FDA, Well if you work for a drug company chances are you will work there at some time in your life as well. FDA is the Food And Drug Administration. They regulate the Food and the Drugs that are allowed to be marketed into the United States. So, they are the ones that say if you can or cannot sale a product to the consumers. The objective is to keep drugs safe.. But they actually are very good at keeping the market free of competition. Not enough room here for that discussion so. Here is the post.
Miserable in menopause, Elizabeth Alsgaard pondered an awful choice: Drenching hot flashes or hormone therapies that might raise the risk of cancer. What former actress Suzanne Somers raved about held much more appeal — custom-mixed "bioidentical" hormones, just like ones the body makes.
"Anything I can put into my body that’s natural has to be better," said Alsgaard, a California audiologist who admitted having "no knowledge base to go on other than fear" when she took Somers’ advice.

Women who add more fat to their bodies as they approach menopause will have a harder time with hot flashes and night sweats.
Fat was perceived to protect women against vasomotor symptoms (hot flashes and night sweats) because it contains hormones that can be converted into oestrogen. However, recent research has shown that women with higher body mass index and more body fat actually suffer more hot flashes.
Gains in body fat are common over the course of midlife and the menopausal transition. To investigate whether these gains might be related to menopausal symptoms, researchers studied 1,659 American women 47 to 59 years old for four years. Every year, they checked women’s hormone levels, percentage of body fat, and frequency of hot flashes and night sweats.
The pain, discomfort and inconvenience of menopause symptoms are hormone related. Change will come when you commit to change. It’s about ‘wanting’ to make changes to feel ‘yourself’ again. It’s definitely possible. After all, I did it!
