If you missed Dr. Low Dog’s webinar on Menopause Solutions yesterday, you missed this soothing recipe that’s great for a variety of symptoms of menopause, or just to help you sleep better. Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb, which Dr. Low Dog says is relaxing, can help with night sweats, mental fog, aches and pains, even boosting the immune system. “Drink this at night, before you got to bed,” she says, “and I promise you’ll be sleeping better.”
