How to make my favourite bliss ball recipes

HRT replacement bliss balls

This recipe is fantastic for perimenopausal or menopausal ladies who need an extra boost for hormones and energy.   These are supposed to be thebest years of your life. The kids may be grown up (mine are still very young, but I started late). We are supposed to be full of self-knowledge, self-confidence and no more mood swings. I know some days it may seem a little more like self-doubt, stress and tiredness.  If you are feeling overwhelmed, tired and stressed, find yourself half an hour to make these little balls of bliss. They are teeming with energy, nutrients and minerals that will help balance your hormones.

There are a few alternative remedies to HRT including black cohosh, red clover, dong quai, evening primrose oil, ginseng, soy, maca and kava. However, just because a product is labelled 'natural' does not mean that it is automatically safe and free from potentially damaging chemicals, so be careful in buying products and always buy from a good supplier. 

Eating cake and bliss balls may sound like a great way to help cope with menopause.  There is a very special recipe for HRT cake on the blog here. http://www.passion4juice.com/blog/261-womens-health
