Suggestions for health care include informing women of the advantages and disadvantages of HRT to encourage popularity. PMID: 30728754 [PubMed - in process]

The ingestion of malagueta peppers (popular name for fruits of Capsicum frutescens L., Solanaceae) causes sensations similar to those experienced by women during hot flashes. Using the homeopathic law of similars (let like be cured by like), we hypothesized that a homeopathic...
