I am 50, and have noticed over the years that whenever I take a course of GINSENG that Life is Fine. BC (before children) I didn't take it all the time, and always just for endurance and stress.... a month or 2 on then a month or 2 off. I seemed to know when it was time to start another course of it, because that's when I'd remember to buy it. I had my first child at 33, and started having extremely uncontrollable angry episodes each month, I could put my fist through the wall I would get so angry.....Ranting and raving over the stupidest things...it was like I was possessed, I could feel myself doing it but couldn't stop. But I noticed that if I was on Ginseng, I wouldn't get angry... Life was better. So I started to make sure that I took it religiously, 3 months on, 1 month off. The episodes stopped completely.
I have stopped menstruating now, and have had no (touch wood), menopause side effects. Except for the occasional hot flush when I have a glass of wine (that's a pain). Amazingly though, I would go without a period for 3 or 4 months, then when I stopped the Ginseng, I would get one....that night. It's now been 6 months since I had a Ginseng tablet, and I have just started another course. It will be interesting to see if it still has the same effect when I stop. I will let you know.
Hope this is helpful to someone. The added benefit of taking Ginseng is that my energy levels increase, and people say I don't look my age.
