BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Hot flash?
Posted by: wanthanee, Sunday, August 26, 2012, 9:10pm
:D Hello everyone, I read the post a few day ago from a lady who has been taking flaxseed oil but she still has hot flash. Now I can’t find the post so I would like to share my experience with her.

I would like to share my experience.  I have tried everything to help me to sleep better and it worked for me.  Sorry I don’t know how to start because of my limited English so please bear with me.  As I am 51 years old I think I have some symptoms of Menopause such as hot flashes.  I couldn’t sleep well before but now I sleep very well and I have fewer hot flashes (some days, not at all).  Some nights if I got hot flash I still sleep well.

I focus more on my diet and make time for myself.  Before, I only cared about work.  Sometime 6-7 days a week.  Then I asked myself, “What for?”  All the money goes to the big house and to help my family.  I have not even kids!  Fancy clothes and make up aren’t important to me.  So I changed to a smaller, comfortable condo not far from beaches so that I have perfect ozone and now I work only 3 days and still help my family in Thailand. I am very happy.

For healthiest, of course use the compliant eat right for your blood type and I try to consume a good balance of Yin and Yang.  It is dependent on the climate in which you live too. For example Florida  more warm so eat more cool food.

Yin is cool, Yang is hot

As I know Yin in the food:
Jujube, Dragon fruit , Apple banana, Mangosteen, Pomelo, Grapefruit, Water melon, Spinach, young Pumpkin, Napa cabbage, Turnip, Watercress, Zucchini, Cucumber, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Mung bean, Job’s tear, Brown rice,  White rice, oyster mushroom, Mountain Yam.

Long bean, seaweed, spirulina, ginger, turmeric, Jackfruit, Durian, Longan, Guava, Chinese Kale, Herbs such as cumin etc., Wild rice, Taro, Potato, barley, Wheat, Sesame seed.

That’s all I know about which food are Yin and Yang.

Also, in the book Complete Blood type Encyclopedia say about Menopause: Blood Group A:
1.     Menopause Support Protocol
     -Chamomile tea 1-3 cups daily( I drink but sometime I forgot)
     -Soy isoflavones, 50 mg: 1 capsule, daily ( I eat soy product such as  soybean,tofu,temph,
     -Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), 50 mg: daily ( I got from the food)
     -Black cohosh ( cimicifuga racemosa), standardized to 2.5% triterpene glycosides: 1-2 capsules, twice daily ( I didn’t take)

Non-secretors and other subtypes Add:

Vitamin A 10000 iu: 1 capsule, daily ( I got from the food)
Boron, 1 mg 1 capsule, daily(I take from Phytocal)

2.     Female Balancing Protocol
     -Chamomile (I drink but sometime I forgot)
     -Black Cohosh (I didn’t take)
     -Parsley Leaf 400: 1-2 capsules, twice daily (I love Cilantro I use ganish my food and may be twince a week put in my smoothies)
     -Blessed Thistle(Cnicus benedictus) tincture: 5-10 drops in warm water, twice daily(I didn’t take)
     -Black currant seed oil capsules, 500 mg: 2-3 capsules, daily (I didn’t take if desire I will look for cold press)

3.     Metabolic Enhancement Protocol
     -L-Tyrosine 250 mg 1-2 capsules, twice daily( I got from the food)

Aslo, I consume the food which is contain Choline (I got from the food such as soy Lecithin and soy products), Betaine , Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Molyodenum, Boron all of these seem like work together very well I take Phytocal. It is all in one because I am a vegetarian before I think I might missing or get not enough  some Vitamin and mineral such as Zine because I didn’t eat any seafood or Oyster.

Well, I have to watch out because I haven’t check the blood test yet. Only check blood test for B12, FSH, Progesterone, TSH, Estradiol, Lipid Profile, Comprehensive Metabolic, CBC, Urinalysis same thing I thougt I get not enough B12 but I got very high and very surprise.

Also, I check with BMI from:

In BMI & Daily Needs Calculator I need Protein only 25 g in 1 cup of oat I already got  
26.4 g if my body absorb all what about other food I got more than I need nah.

And about Linolenic Acid I need 12000 mg
Alpha-Linolenic Acid I need 1100 mg

I take a look on this website only 1 ounce of Walnut I got
Omega-3 fatty acids 2542 mg and Omega 6 fatty acids 10666 mg

And below, this website take about yin.

And this link below is very good and interesting and I follow too. Also, read all the books from Dr. D it is very helpful.

Flaxseed is an estrogenic food which means it can contribute to hormone imbalance if your friend is estrogen dominant (most of us are due to processed foods, plastics, makeup, etc.).

Although flaxseed is a diamond for me, because of my condition, I avoid it. I did not get SWAMIed yet but plan on doing so in the near future. I know that once my estrogen dominance issues are resolved, I will be able to eat all my diamonds and not react as badly to avoids.

Just because something is on your food list, if you have a reaction of some sort (allergic, etc.), it is best to avoid it until your gut is healed.

I try to keep my food list simple by selecting diamonds from each group and sticking to it. I have my regular "go-to" items which I never get tired of and can have a nice, healthy, delicious meal.

My wife has had miserable hot flashing for a year now, but recently found a formula at our local HFS that has worked wonders. My concern is that the first ingredient is black cohosh root extract, and I seem to recall there were some issues with it. Am I behind the curve on this? I see it mentioned above, which makes me think it's known negative is a "given" that I'm just not aware of.

Under the protocols Doc D says not to take if your taking med. for high blood pressure.  

It's in the Fem Balance formula which is listed good for all types.

Thank you! Really good news. She responds so well to it, therefore, so do I.

Two things that I found that has helped me tremendously are homeopathy and eliminating niacin.  You would be amazed at how many things have niacin added.

My PCP had me on niaspan for 2+ years before the truth came out. Very expensive exploit of my condition.
And yes, you flash like a lobster in a pot! I'm sure even small doses could be the culprit.
