Effective Hot Flash Relief:
Most doctors believe hot flashes, mood swings, and other menopausal problems are caused by hormonal imbalances & yin deficiency. Heat Relief features effective Chinese Herbs like Phellodendri and Mu Dan Pi used by women for centuries to stop hot flashes & irritability, strongly nourish yin and balance hormones!

Say No To Artificial Hormones!
Before you risk the side effects of artificial hormones, you owe it to yourself to try the natural herbal approach for 3-4 weeks.  Heat Relief offers quick relief from the discomfort caused by menopause & perimenopause.

Proven Fast and Effective:
Dr. Robert Youngs has used this formula with great results for hundreds of women in a clinical setting. Heat Relief was formulated for women to quickly clear heat, nourish fluids, blood and yin, improve vaginal dryness and stop night sweats. 

Treatment For Menopause:
Beginning signs and early signs of menopause are afternoon heat and irritability. Hormones change with age. Try "Women's Harmony" to balance hormones before menopause signs begin or "Heat Balancer" after signs begin.

*Some women who were cold in nature before menopause and who still feel a bit like covering up after hot flashes, may need to use "Hot/Cold Balancer". 

How To Use It:
In Chinese medicine this formula would be used to treat what we call "the branch" of the problem. Hot flashes, night, sweats and feelings of internal hear are "the branch", or symptoms of a deeper issue of Yin and blood deficiency. First, the patient would use "Heat Relief" to address the symptoms of menopause. Once they are under control, usually within 4-8 weeks, the patient would then add in "Women's Heat Balancer" and slowly decrease dose of Heat Relief. It is one such herbs for menopause which offers incredible results.

Natural Menopause and Perimenopause Relief:
Menopause is a natural process that can be experienced with a celebration of freedom and joy. But night sweats, hot flashes, irritability, hot flushes, vaginal dryness, moodiness and fatigue can make it difficult to bear.

"Heat Relief" can work as quickly as 3-7 days for some women though many women can need 10-14 days. Chinese herbal medicine works more slowly than Artificial Hormones but it doesn't have the side effects either!!!

Herbs are a better solution than artificial hormones with all their side effects. Natural and plant based, herbs work best when taken 3 times a day and in larger doses. Once your symptoms are in check, you can start to slowly decrease the dose for treatment.

They are "gentle healing foods". A normal dose of Chinese herbs is 4-8 capsules three times a day or as directed by physician. 

Tips from Clinical Experience

  • Take an extra dose of Heat Relief before bed if that is when your heat feelings peak.
  • Watch your diet -less spicy food and alcohol the first 2 weeks on herbs!
  • Take higher dose, next body weight higher than yours, first 7 days.
  • Once heat is under control, add in "Women's Heat Balancer" (found on our website) to further balance hormones.

These herbs for early menopause address both the symptoms and the cause guaranteeing long term relief.

According to Chinese medicine, Yin moves with blood and is the foundation of a woman’s health. A lack of Yin can lead to a variety of problems, such as irregular menstruations, infertility, premature aging, respiratory disorders and even cardiovascular disorders. Due to its rich nature, Shu Di Huang nourishes and invigorates the blood, strengthens the kidneys and stimulates the Yin.

Shu Di Huang is especially useful in menstrual disorders. Due to blood deficiency and stagnation, menstruations are irregular and are accompanied by cramps and headaches. Shu Di Huang is also used to treat post-partum complications, hyper menorrhea or infertility.  Shu Di Huang can also help maintain the blood level normal.

This cool and bitter herb invigorates and moves the blood, nourishing and cooling your Yin energies. Mu Dan Pi can also treat menstrual disorders, such as early menstruations or epistaxis during menstruations.

Information on Black Cohosh for Menopausal symptoms:
Studies show some effectiveness of black cohosh for hot flashes during menopause. However in Chinese medicine, single herbs are rarely used. Instead, herbs are almost always combined into an herbal formula so that any possible side effects can be countered. Combining herbs also increases their effectiveness. Herbs such as Mu Dan Pi, Zhi Mu, Huang Bai and Di Huang are more effective and have been used for centuries in combination for menopause symptoms.
