A Melatonin/Maca Menopause Miracle?

Could these natural remedies help your hot flashes and other symptoms?

    After several months of low-dose melatonin use, many of the women saw their menstrual cycles return to normal and had relief of some of their perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms.
    Within three days, I was down to one brief hot flash a day. Within a week, my hot flashes stopped entirely. I continued to take the maca, and still do, and haven’t had a hot flash since.
