LATEST LETTER TO LISSA
I was reading the letter to you from the woman who was experiencing the night sweats. She didn\’t mention if she could be experiencing menopause, even early on set menopause but I have to tell you of my own experience that happened by mistake. I had just started to experience constant hot flashes, night sweats and I was wondering if it was normal to have them as often as I was. I am 54 so I knew part of it was common but having so many? That made me curious. I happened to be reading about Ghee butter. I liked the sound of it, bought some organic ghee, got it home and opened the jar and the smell was intoxicating. I don\’t know if it\’s because it reminded me of movie houses from when I was little and the pure smell of butter was dreamy! I started using it on toast, with cooking, on pop corn and over my veggies. I went through a jar in a short time. A few weeks went by and I had a consultation with an Ayurvedic practitioner. When she was asking me if I had hot flashes or night sweats, I told her I had been but that they had suddenly subsided. Later in the conversation I mentioned the Ghee, and she told me that the Ghee was helping with the hot flashes! I didn\’t get it for that, but I certainly got the great benefit from it. I don\’t know if my case was unusual or if something else contributed to the subsiding of those inner heat bombs. But for me? Ghee was an outstanding choice. I don\’t crave it like I did when I first got it which I heard was normal. Now I just eat it because it tastes so much better than butter. Just thought I would add my two cents!
Yes! Thanks, Patti! Ghee is a wonderful ayurvedic remedy for many ailments – thank you for the reminder! Ghee is absolutely delicious, too. It is available at most health food stores, and we are going to be carrying some amazing organic ghee on our new site: http://www.dharmasmart.com.
