There are a number of options however I strongly recommend that you consult with a naturopathic doctor to determine the remedy best fit for you. Relora is my favourite choices for chronic stress and sleep disruption. It's often the best option for patients who tend to wake up throughout the night, for highly stressed individuals and for menopausal women with hot flashes that cause sleep disruption. It can significantly reduce cortisol and raises DHEA within only two weeks of use. Take 2 before bed and 1 in the morning to ease the effects of stress and improve your rest. Black cohosh can be also used to treat hot flashes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, urinary urgency and other symptoms that can occur during menopause. Take 40 mg twice daily, away from food. You can also consult with your MD, ND or compounding pharmacy about bio-identical progesterone.
