Hot Flashes Can Be Unbearable, But Help is Out There!

If you’re a woman, there’s a pretty good chance that hot flashes are something you may experience at some point in your life. Hot flashes are frequently a symptom of menopause and perimenopause.

  • A feeling of warmth that spreads over the body and often begins in the head and neck regions.
  • Hot flashes are a common symptom experienced by women prior to and during the early stages of the menopausal transition.
  • However, not all women approaching menopause will develop hot flashes.
  • Hot flashes can also affect women who start early menopause after undergoing chemotherapy or surgery to remove their ovaries.

I have actually just started having some of these symptoms and to say hot flashes are no fun, would be a bit of an understatement.

How I Manage My Hot Flashes

 

I have done a lot of reading, related to managing my hot flashes and some things that have worked for me include:

  • Staying cool by keeping my bedroom cool at night and using fans (or air conditioning) during the day.
  • Wearing lightweight clothes with natural fibers.
  • Exercise seems to help me too, so I try to go for a walk every day.
  • Hormone free therapy (Botanicals and herbs may have side effects or interact with other medications, so ask your doctor first.)

Like many women, I am a bit reluctant to take traditional hormone replacement therapy. Although it often works, it is not without risks.  Because of that, I would much rather give the natural treatment a try first.

Hot FlashesI recently discovered, HRT Multi-Symptom.

This NEW product helps to relieve the symptoms associated with menopause such as hot flushes, night sweats, paresthesia, insomnia, nervousness, melancholia, vertigo, fatigue, rheumatic pain and vaginal dryness. Bonus, it does not come with any side effects.

The International Day of Action for Women’s Health was May 28th. No better time for women to explore the entire series of  Swiss Natural™ products developed to support women through all stages of their life, including menopause.

Menopause is a natural occurrence, so why not treat it naturally?

I don’t know about you, but I find it comforting to know that Swiss is with me during my life journey.

  1. I can honestly say I am dreading this! My two coworkers went through hot flashes at the same time and we were all helping fan them! You could tell it was hitting them when their ears would turn red! It is definitely something I would treat, why let yourself suffer through it?

  2. I agree why not treat the symptoms if you can, no point in suffering through it. My insomnia keeps getting worse, I will have to try this because it is hard to find anything to treat it that doesn’t have a huge list of side effects.

  3. I recently spoke with my dr about hot flashes. She told me I have a while before this happens. But I know my mom suffers. Sharing this with her

  4. To be honest, hot flashes scare me a little ;) I see other women going through them and just don’t want to ever have to deal with them! I realize they’re inevitable, and I’m glad there are things that can be tried to help!

  5. I am nowhere near menopause, but I experienced them postpartum. It is definitely not easy to deal with.

  6. Thanks for the info….I’m at that stage of life where I may need something like this soon. Had never heard of it before. I’m all for anything natural that will help!

  7. I haven’t, but its just around the corner.

  8. So yeah I am there but on and off. My doctor put me on HRT quite some time ago. I stopped it entirely myself (and got a lecture from doctor about 1 year ago when he said DON”T do that) So I am currently on HRT. Estrogen actually. Little did I know hormones are also responsible for memory and memory can be impacted if estrogen tapers off dramatically. SO, that said I have always been looking for something natural and wondering how it works. I can handle hot flashes but there’s a lot more that goes with menopause – whether it is natural or surgically induced. So I will look for this and price it and read all the ingredients and decide if I want to switch. Aging is okay in many regards BUT NOT in others.

    I have gone threw it. I also never had to use any form of birth control. We have been married 38yrs this year. Our children are 35,30 and change of life baby 15. They say we are the most fertile just premenopause. So be warned. There is nothing better than to have a child at that age. She is my best friend. Any way Just want to warn people to take care and try to tough it out. Help with MENTAL PAUSE symptoms usually come with hormones. Just like some of out foods like flax .oregano just to name a couple so you will know how common the foods are. I hate to take a pill so I am glad I toughed it out. I ended up having a negative mammo. 5 months later I found a lump which was stage 1 breast cancer which was caused by hormones. So especially for women who have a hard time conceiving children Please tough it out. It is not good for any women to add hormones to their body. CHECK your self as well.

    I had to go through this a few years ago when I was put into surgical menopause and it was brutal. I finally had to resort to prescription meds for 2 years to get through it. Now I am good, no hot flashes.
