Hot Flashes and Herbs!

I first became interested in Mexican herbalism when I read a study reporting that Maya women in the Yucatan did not experience the drastic hormonal imbalances that plague Western women at menopause because their diet includes regular ingestion of wild yams. Of course, Western practitioners focused on the wild yam aspect and added it to their hormonal supplements for menopausal women not taking into account that these Maya women had been eating wild yam their entire lives. It was not something they started to eat later in their reproductive life, certainly not something that could be ingested in pill form.

My interest in herbs to help during the final reproductive transition period has become more intense since my first hot flash–man, was that a doozy. I can’t say that I’ve found a magic bean just yet, but learning more about herbs and what to expect during menopause has taken some of the shock factor out of this phase of my life. Of course, I’m still completely taken by surprise at each hot flash episode, but I know now that I won’t spontaneously combust, it only feels that way.

Of course, I’m all about helping women at any stage of life, including la tercer edad (the third age) which is fast approaching on my own horizon. So I am pleased to say that fine folks at Ultimate Bundles have done it again with their latest batch of courses, ebooks, workbooks and seminars.

I’ve already signed up for and completed the Preparing Your Garden for the Golden Years course and have started diligently using the Menopause Symptoms Tracking Journal in the hope I can get a handle on this natural, but rough, phase of life. I plan on making the most of the years I have remaining! How about you?

Not only does the Ultimate Women’s Wellness Bundle cover menopause with these amazing resources but you will ALSO get the chance to purchase the 2019 Herbs & Essential Oils Super Bundle which includes my book Exploring Traditional Herbal Remedies in Mexico

So to recap, one reasonable price ($37) gives you access to 79 products worth $4641.70 including 33 eBooks, 29 eCourses, 12 workbooks & printables, 3 summits & documentaries, and 2 audios. You can then upgrade to receive the Herbs & Essential Oils Super bundle with 29 eBooks, 4 Printables, and 7 eCourses worth $701.14 too.

Since I’m on the subject of hormones and herbs, I also wanted to mention that the Herbal Academy has a new intensive out. The Herbal Aphrodisiacs Intensive provides a basic overview of sexuality and how herbal aphrodisiacs can be called upon to offer support in various ways. Ooh-la-la! It’s available at a discounted rate until February 16. You can find more information HERE if you’d like to be herbally hot-to-trot for Valentine’s Day.

So many options! Why not get them all?
