When the menopause begins, you can begin to feel a conglomeration of symptoms accompanying it. They can leave you feeling down and below average, but why not fight back against it with our natural remedies for hot flushes. At Women’s Health After 40, we provide helpful tips for a wide range of symptoms.
Hot flushes, which are found in around 75% of women during the menopause, describe exactly what they are. The body is given a sudden warmth or heat and is often coupled – when you’re sleeping – with night sweats or excessive sweating during the day.
While all this sounds horrible, there is help out there without taking a host of tablets. Natural remedies can help to halt the effect of hot flushes. Giving your body more Vitamin E (prevalent in almonds, spinach, avocado and sweet potato) or Evening Primrose Oil works for some women.
The oil is made into tablet form for the purposes of supplementation and can regulate the hormones in the body. Although none of these remedies are 100% fool-proof, there are other options. Hypnosis and acupuncture have received mixed results in studies for the onset of menopausal symptoms too.
