But I feel obligated to share what I’ve learned about caffeine and menopause, if only to provide you with additional options for symptoms management. If you are a long-time reader of Flashfree, you will remember that I’ve previously covered the health benefits of coffee so the news isn’t all that bad.

    I read Silver Moon by Catherine Lundoff for my TBR challenge. This is a book that I have wanted to read for a while. The book is about Becca Thornton a woman starting menopause who just happens to live in a town where some women of that age are chosen to become werewolves. I thought based on the blurb on the back of the book that this was going to a very funny book. It was a very good book, with some very serious reactions. There are hunters, some bad guys, economic problems, an ex-husband who is selfish, a new love interest and of course turning into a werewolf. Once I got use to the idea…

    31 Jul 2014 | 4:10 am
    The diagnosis of menopause is usually made by menstrual and medical history, but sometimes may be made with the use of lab values. Lab values may include levels of follicle stimulating hormone, FSH, Estradiol estrogen, or Thyroid Stimulating Hormone, TSH. The most common way to diagnose menopause is after 12 months of amenorrhea, or having no menstrual periods.

    30 Jul 2014 | 5:17 am
    If you (and I DO NOT recommend it) judged what male health was all about by looking at popular culture, I think it could be summed up in one word: abs. Walk past a magazine rack and it’s all abs, all the time. But there’s a lot more to it than that. When it comes to health, we men can be our own worst enemy. According to the US government’s Medline, men are more likely to smoke, to drink, to ignore symptoms, to put off health care visits, and to make risky health choices. So today, a few simple tasks to get you back on track if you’ve strayed. #1: The next few times…

    I have been listening — against my will — to a lot of “new country” music over the last couple of weeks. And let me tell you, it’s not to my taste. My tastes are very broad when it comes to music, but 90 per cent of what I heard — from “Drunk on a plane” to “River bank” – I disliked. And it got me thinking, all these songs. It reminded me first of this video that I saw a while ago: “Why country music was so awful in 2013.” And then I got to thinking that this whole country music thing is an example of people…

    In an article from TIME magazine last year, Virginia Postrel writes about The Twisted Allure of Jihadi Glory. While it features the outcry over the Rolling Stone cover featuring Boston bomber Dzokhar Tsarnaev, it poses a bigger picture question on the power of glamourization. Postrel shares a quote from novelist Salman Rushdie, no stranger to controversy himself as the author of the 1988 novel, The Satanic Verses. Asked about what motivates suicide bombers, Rushdie’s answer is illuminating: Terror is glamour – not only, but also. [Terrorists] are influenced by the misdirected…

    Here’s what boron expert, Walter Last, has to say about supplementing with boron to treat and cure menopause…Research has now shown that boron supplementation in postmenopausal women doubles the blood level of the most active form of oestrogen, 17-beta oestradiol, to the level found in women on oestrogen replacement therapy. Equally, the blood levels of testosterone more than doubled. With HRT there is a higher risk of breast or endometrial cancer which is not known to happen with hormones produced by the body as with borax supplementation.
