by -

Flaxseeds - full of Omega 3 essential fatty acids which have 2 primary functions in the body
1. As structural fats in the membranes
2. As precursors for 'prostaglandins' which are mediators in controlling blood pressure, clotting, immune function and other physiological activities

Flaxseed can help prevent breast cancer, prostate cancer, promote a healthy digestive system and are an essential for cardiovascular health. Menopausal women should include a daily intake of 40g as research shows that this quantity can reduce hot flushes by 35% and night sweats by 44%.

Use Flaxseed Oil on salads, porridge, soups - never heat the oil, it is a cold pressed oil and when heated will change the properties of omega 3.

  • "I am a 49 year old woman who has always cared about healthy living. About 6 months ago I began to suffer with daily hot flushes, hair loss and general fatigue for which I couldn't seem to manage even with my healthy lifestyle of daily yoga and a healthy vegetarian diet. I found out about Natural Solutions on the Internet and made an appointment to enquire bout menapausal program's.  After my first appointment with Andrea I saw the value of an improved and varied diet, the introduction of a whole range of supplements and the continued need for regular detox program's. 6 months on, I'm really pleased to say that I hardly suffer from hot flushes, my hair loss is no longer a concern and actually found new hair coming through and my energy levels are back to normal. I thank Natural Solutions for bringing me the awareness I needed to ease of the menapausal symptoms and to allow me to think ahead about the way I can transition through the menapausal years with greater ease, so that I can continue to live with greater vitality.
