Does anyone use black cohosh for night sweats?

A friend of mine was telling me yesterday that she uses something called black cohosh (I think I'm spelling this right) to help treat her menopause. I get night sweats really badly and I'm almost 50 and I still get my cycle and everything but I think it won't be too long before I am in menopause too. She said the black cohosh should help me. I like the idea of a product made by Mother Nature instead of a lab, know what I mean? But I'm not sure about this one as I've never heard of it. I've been "lurking" on here for awhile reading other posts and I figured it was a good time to post something of my own. My friend said soy is good too and I have read some articles on that, but the black cohosh was new to me. Thank you for helping. Sally

I am 39yrs old and have had a FULL hysterectomy due to Ovarian Cancer....I stopped the Premearin and wanted to go the natural route...the Black Cohosh stopped the wicked hot flashes I had even to the point where I was no longer soaking wet from sweat, AND I was able to sleep.

I currently have (temporarily) stopped taking Black cohosh because there is a question about it being a possible Estrogen receptor...but since then, the sweats and the hot flashes are back.
