When It Comes to Menopause You Are What You Eat
Did you know that Japanese women tend to suffer hot flashes only about 1/3 as often as American women? Or that those following a vegetarian diet also complain of hot flashes far less than the rest of us? Of course, you don't have to give up the steaks just yet - but doctors and nutritional professionals suspect that the difference is largely due to the use of soy products in the diets of these women. Several women have now realized that by incorporating some soy in their diets, their symptoms of menopause have abated considerably.
Altering your diet in small ways can have the greatest positive effect on your body as it transitions to menopause and beyond.
