Hormone Replacement Therapy, (HRT) “It doesn’t prevent heart disease. In fact, it increases the risk of heart disease, breast cancer and stroke.”Dr. Jay Brooks, chairman of hematology/oncology, Ochsner Health System, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The debate has just begun but the statitics are in and the spin has begun. Rarely do we have the medical professionals divided over a treatment that has been over a wide range for so long.

Hot flashes, hot flushes and night sweats.

Tuesday, February 13th, 2007 10:04am

Hot Flashes: I remember when I was younger and old women would talk about hot flashes. I didn’t have a clue what they were, but I knew they were not a good thing. Well, now I’m there and I was right. There’s nothing like it, they start out as “warm” flashes… you know, all of a sudden you feel like someone turned the air conditioning off… but in a couple of minutes you’re ok. Then they pick up steam. You can be freezing to death one moment, then you feel it coming on… starts in the pit of your stomach and within 30 seconds, your entire body heats up like an oven. Lasts a few minutes, then you’re back to freezing. These symptoms are annoying during the day… but at night…

Night Sweats: There’s nothing like being in a deep peaceful sleep when all of a sudden you swear the house is on fire! When you wake up, both you and the bed a soaked!
