REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: At Last Naturals



Is it hot in here? Or is it just me? This is something that I continually ask my husband. For the most part, the answer is that it is just me.

Hot flashes, mood swings and generally periods of being a witch with a capital B! I am 44 and have been dealing with this on & off since I was 36. If you have been a follower on my personal blog, you know that I had a heart attack when I was 35. The following year, I had another huge medical scare when they found a 13cm cyst on my ovary. Since they had to cut to remove the cyst I decided to just remove the ovary & my uterus since I had been having problems in that department as well. So, I was left with one ovary to at least help with the hormones. So all this led to surgically induced menopause. Man, being a girl is not easy! Since I have a cardiac history, I am not supposed to take any HRTs unless they are homeopathic. I have tried another product in the past, but never really felt a difference.

I recently was sent a collection of products to try and review from At Last Naturals. Over the last two weeks,I have been using the At Last Naturals Wild Yam Extra Strength Gel and the At Last Naturals Meno-Herbs2®. I really can't give a thorough review since I've only been using the products for 2 weeks, BUT I have not had a hot flash since I started. I have also noticed that I haven't been feeling the fluttering in my chest, which had also been attributed to menopause. I would also like to think that I am not being quite as witchy too :-)) But I'm sure that my husband would beg to differ. Now, I'm hoping it will help with the weight gain that tagged along as well. I will update once I have had the opportunity to use the products for at least 3 months. I also like that it is not strictly for menopause, it also helps with symptoms of perimeno and PMS.  Wish I had At Last Naturals back when I had PMS.  And I'm sure my family does too!

If you are experiencing symptoms of menopause, peri-menopause or PMS and would like to try a natural alternative to HRT's, try At Last Naturals! Always check with your doctor before starting any type of therapy, natural or not. Giveaway follows.
