[Alert] THIS Menopause Symptom CAUSING Heart Attack and Stroke?!
You try to eat right. You try to get in plenty of movement every day.
You don’t smoke.
But despite your best efforts, 75 percent of women STILL face an EXTREMELY HIGH risk of having a cardiovascular event like a heart attack or stroke.
Find out if you’re in the 75%…
And if you are, what you can do to stay safe.
It’s something no woman can avoid. Sooner or later, every woman will go through “the Change.”
While a small percentage of women seem to breeze through this transition, most aren’t so lucky.
In fact, a shocking 75% of women suffer from the most common menopausal symptom: hot flashes.
Even more shocking, you can be dealing with them for up to 10 years! Yikes.
Hot flashes are typically seen as a quality of life issue. But recent research has revealed that they could be a big red warning sign of much more serious problems.
Two studies were presented at the North American Menopause Society recently that found:
- Night sweats are linked to cognitive dysfunction in menopausal women.
- There’s a direct link between the frequency and severity of hot flashes and the risk of heart attack and stroke.
A major national study evaluated 3,000 women starting in 1996 (prior to menopause or in early menopause) and followed them for 20 years (into postmenopausal).
The women who had more frequent hot flashes in their 40s had DOUBLE the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and heart failure when they got older.
And the women who had more frequent hot flashes as they got older had an 80% increased risk of cardiovascular events.
So, if you’re a woman who is on the “other side” of having hot flashes—or even if you’re in the midst of them—you’re probably wondering what you can do to lower your heart risk.
I have a few recommendations.
First, start looking at hot flashes as a warning sign.
And instead of just taking a pharmaceutical drug to help alleviate the SYMPTOM, start taking steps to lower your risk of heart disease. Maintain a healthy weight, get your blood pressure under control, stay active, and spend plenty of time in the sun.
Also, I’m not a fan of the mainstream’s treatment of menopausal symptoms. Doctors prescribe everything from hormone therapy to antidepressants to antiseizure medicines.
I have found that one of the best ways to get your hormones under control—and to knock out those stubborn menopausal symptoms—is with three powerful herbs:
- Cynanchum wilfordi,
- Jerusalem sage, and
- Korean angelica
