    Comment:
    I had a Total Hysterectomy 2 years ago and have been completly miserable. A friend recomended soy vitamins, starting taking them yesterday and for the first time I am not miserable. I actually felt my body core cool down. Was the best nights sleep I've had in 2 years. First day on them and today has been a good day so far. Wished I had known this sooner.

    Soy isoflavone has reduced hot flashes and night sweats and I can sleep thru the night. Mood swings, not so much. Experimented by not taking soy for a week and I noticed a huge difference. Highly recommend soy for hot flashes!

    I've been premenopausal for at least 18 years, and soy in its various forms has saved me. I typically use a powder and use soy milk as the base for my daily shake. Good for my fibrocystic breast and bones too.

    Has anyone tried i-cool yet? It contains genistien. I'm thinking about trying it since Estroven / black cohosh is not working for me.

    started taking 8 days after my hysterectomy w/bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Within 2 days, the night sweats had almost disappeared and the hot flashes have lessened in frequency/intensity.
