How Soon After Starting To Take Black Cohosh Will I See Results?

I just started taking black cohosh one week ago for swets. How soon will I start feeling cooler again?

Answer

Hi dna,

The general recommendation for evaluating the effectiveness of any herbals is 6 weeks. Herbals are very weak preparations and, therefore, take awhile to build up to an effective level in your blood. If it doesn't work in that time, it probably means you need a stronger method of hormone therapy.
