The Sage Saga - This Hot Mama is Finally Chilling Out
|Oh, man, this one is a 'six'!|
I have therefore been monitoring my hot flashes day and night for 3 months now. For the first 2 months, I noted both the intensity and duration of every hot flash. After seeing that intensity followed duration hand in hand unwaveringly, I stopped noting duration (why you will only see one column of numbers in the notebook on the right). As for the results so far, they've surprised even me.

Despite A Ridiculously Low DoseI haven't tallied all the figures yet (still gathering info), but here is a peek at 2 of my notebooks. The notebook on the left is a typical day with no sage (17 hot flashes – average intensity: 3,3).
The notebook on the right, a typical day with sage (10 hot flashes – average intensity: 2,3). Explanation: the lower the number, the milder the flash. For more details of this scale, please visit this earlier article.
What's even more notable – these preliminary results are with a ridiculously low dose. I'm not done with this test period yet, but the indications are pretty clear. Which brings me to....
Are You a Hot Mama Too?I'd like to establish whether or not I am the only person sage has this effect on. Are you experiencing hot flashes and taking no hormones or other products for them? Are you in Denmark? (Sorry non-Danish hot mamas, proximity is an issue this time around). Are you willing to monitor your hot flashes around the clock for a period of time? Are you willing to try a brand new, plant-based product that has so far only been tested by 1 person? If so, then please send me an email here and write 'Hot Mama' in the subject line.
