HOT FLASH SPECIAL ERT FROM MOTHER NATURE
MOTHER NATURE'S ERT
I've never been able to take hormones due to a fibroid tumor discovered when I was 30. So hot flashes made my life miserable when I hit my early 50's -- until I learned of an energy drink recipe, so simple, so inexpensive, I've used it now for 20 years.
A package of firm tofu is the first ingredient. Open the package, drain the water, and cut into five slices. Place one slice in your blender. Store the remainder of the tofu in a container that will hold water; cover the tofu with water and refrigerate.
Next, peel a banana and drop that into the blender, followed by a half teaspoon each of oat bran, wheat germ, and REAL cocoa powder. Last, add a half cup of skim milk.
Blend, pour and enjoy.
Other additions if you like: 1 teaspoon frozen orange juice, a couple strawberries, fresh made applesauce...
It's terrific! My friend who was on ERT had to cut her pills in half after drinking this for a year as her period started again.
This is a great breakfast substitute, I usually drink it after morning exercise and don't get hungry for another couple of hours.
