Relief!

Last week, I started taking the herb, Black Cohosh after doing some research on the internet for something to help my depression and time-of-life problems.  It's been amazing!  My energy level is increasing, my mood swings are much better, and most importantly my depression is greatly improved.  I haven't cried for almost a week (except while watching Les Mis). 

Obviously, my experience is limited to short term, but it seems to be what I needed to feel more like myself.  One thing that I did read as a possible problem is liver failure.  Mike and Amy promised to watch my skin tone and the whites of my eyes to check for yellowness.  It's a slight concern, but something that could easily be overlooked.

Wish I had tried this a couple of years ago.

My Chiropractor has me on Hyper-E which is 400 IU of a natural vitamin E. This has lowered my hormonal migraine occurances. Hopefully once we've gone through menopause, migraines will be in the past.
