hot flushes

hot flushes

hot flushes I am looking for alternative therapies to help me with my hot flushes. My probs are:

Tumor hormone receptive so no more HRT
Not allowed any oestrogen derivatives or foods such as soy
Have epliepsy so can’t have evening primrose or it’s derivatives
BC nurse has advised against Black Cohosh as linked to BC
Can’t have reflexology as due to start chemo soon so app wont work

Help! Whats left, I’m burning up!!
