Sweating with hot flushes
I am 52yrs and used Premarin (1,25mg) for 5 years. Heard alot about cancer (colon) and decided to use a natural product. Just bought Phyto Soya and would like your view on this product. Can I switch over to this and leave HRT at once?

Thanks
Mie

These soya products often help for hot flushes. They do not have the other benefits of HRT , such as protecting against osteoporosis. HRT incidentally, decreases the incidence of colon cancer.
