History of hysterectomy. Hot flushes, bloating, food craving. Normal?

Hi Doctor
I'm 48 years and had a hysterectomy 2 years ago, but still have my ovaries. I am currently going through menopause and the hot flushes are extreme, a minute and half every hour. Bloating around my midsection and cravings for the best foods is driving me crazy. Is this all Normal and what can I take that's 100% herbal? I was told about Espride, will this help with all that I'm going through or can u recommend something for me. Please advice if there is a patch I could use instead of meds and is it safe?

Thanking u in advance

Thanks for the query..
At the age of menopause hot flushes are common.
There might have been a imbalance of hormones..
You can take hormone replacement therapy with the advice of your gynecologist..
You have to take plenty of fluids and proper diet rich in antioxidants, calcium and omega fatty acids for proper general health..
Take care...
