Treat the #1 cause of heart disease, osteoporosis, and dementia at home
Last week, I showed you the #1 cause of heart disease, osteoporosis, and dementia in women. That cause is estrogen deficiency. I also told you about a cream that can help you overcome this deficiency quickly and safely. This week, I'd like to show you a few things you can do at home to beat this deficiency - and the diseases it causes.
One of the best — and least exciting — ways to help your body adjust to menopausal changes is exercise. Studies have clearly shown that the women who are in the best physical condition are the ones who have the least symptoms.
But exercise isn't all you can do. There are also several herbal remedies that contain "phytoestrogens" that can help your body make the adjustment.ÿ Phytoestrogens is the name given to certain molecules in plants that are similar enough to estrogen to reduce some of the symptoms of menopause. They are no substitute for the real thing, but they can be helpful while you body is adapting.
A simple way to keep your muscles strong as you get older (and it isn't exercise)
This one step can strengthen aging muscles, boost your immune system, and even help you manage your weight.

The most common herbs are black cohosh, red clover, don quai, saparilla, and soy. Your can buy these herbs and various combinations of them in any health food store. When you take them as directed, they are completely safe. Different brands may be more effective in one person than in another, so if the first brand you try does not work well, try another one.
Women also need to remember that alcohol, even only one glass of wine, and stress will increase their need for estrogen. So if you get hot flashes during the night after an evening out, you'll know why.
Lastly, don't forget melatonin. Melatonin is one of the few hormones that you can get without a doctor's prescription. And it is one of the most important. In fact, low levels of melatonin are a trigger for menopause. Melatonin is the master hormone that regulates the sex hormones. So it is critical that you start taking melatonin as soon as you enter into menopause.
You can learn all about melatonin in some of my past articles. Start off with a dose between 1-3 mg, and take it about 30 minutes before bedtime. About one in 20 women will have restless sleep after taking oral melatonin. For them, the best way to take melatonin is with a topical cream. I'll have more about this interesting approach to melatonin replacement in the future.
If you're experiencing menopausal symptoms, start taking these simple steps now. They can help you avoid heart disease, osteoporosis, and dementia.
