I wouldn't touch estrogen but I'm having success with a nightly prescription progesterone capsule from http://www.womensinternational.com/
The progesterone may also have helped with my 50 lb weight loss, but I'm also eating very low carb.

This review is from: The Estrogen Alternative: Natural Hormone Therapy With Botanical Progesterone (Paperback)
She needs to read it not only for herself, but for her daughter(s), her sister(s), her mother, and all her friends. This book is an absolute must for any woman wondering if there are natural alternatives out there for treatment of menopausal symptoms. It really opened my eyes to hormone replacement therapy and the ramifications that are *NOT* mentioned very frequently by the medical establishment. Do youself a favor and get this book!
Dense and informative. Not fluff. Good info.
