    Hey everyone,

    I am on Day 5.  I am 38 and had a hysterectomy 2 years ago ( I kept my ovaries).

    I am naturally a nervous person and suffered from hot flushes, going red and sweating all my life.  Since my hysterectomy they are much more severe and feel more intense.  The DR put me on HRT however my blood tests were inconclusive.  My memory is awful and energy is always low, my skin is also no prone to breakouts and my pores are huge so they think I am in menopause.

    Anyway, as I am not really getting anywhere with my DR, I am wondering if looking at my nutrition will help.  I have also stopped drinking coffee.  I was drinking 3 or 4 a day so I decided to stop when started Whole30

    Does anyone have a positive experience with Whole30 and hot flushes?

    Thank you

    Laura

     

    Hi Laura,

    I know that Whole30 can help with hormonal imbalance. I am 33, and have been undergoing fertility treatments and have been suffering from severe hot flashes as well. I am not sure if they are related to my fertility treatment medication or not- my guess is probably, yes. I am not currently on a round of Whole30 but I don't recall having hot flashes like this when I was. I am strictly speaking from personal experience- I am not a medical professional.

    I also found this article on Whole30 and menopause that you might find helpful...

    I hope this helps somewhat. Please let me know how else I can support you :)

    I am on my 3rd Whole30 in 3 years. I love to do it once a year as a cleanse. I’m on day 24 and feeling so good. The last few days I have been getting comments about my weight loss, which is a great motivator! The first week of the timeline rang pretty true for me, but the rest has felt so positive. I had to make it through a camping trip with coworkers where everyone was drinking cocktails and eating camp food and s’mores. That wasn’t so easy .....but the victory is so satisfying !

    I can’t wait for Day 30 so I can get on the scale!!

    Those are all HUGE non-scale victories! Congratulations on making it to Day 24! You're in the home stretch now! :)
