Hot flushes can be a real embarrassing event – not to mention a complete pain in the neck to deal with!
Any woman who has experienced hot flushes knows it is something she wouldn’t wish on her worst enemy. That is why it is a sad fact indeed that almost 85% of women who go through menopause experience this horrible symptom!
Luckily there are ways to manage it so that it does not happen as often, and has less of an effect when it does actually happen. Here are 5 remedies for beating hot flushes…
Exercising for 30 to 40 minutes per day can reduce hot flushes and help treat other menopausal symptoms as well. It also helps avoid nasty menopausal weight-gain, and helps you sleep better at night (Sleep can be a big problem for women with menopause!). It can also boost your endorphins which are the feel-good hormones!
Stress is one of the main triggers of menopausal hot flushes. Managing your stress is a great way to minimize your hot flushes. Try relaxing activities like a massage, deep breathing exercises, hobbies, or just taking some “me time”.
There are certain things in our diet that might cause your hot flushes to flare up. Beware of trigger-foods like coffee, tea, other caffeinated drinks, and spicy foods.
Soy is an isoflavone, which means it has natural estrogen-like effects that can help relieve hot flushes. It is found in products like tofu, soy milk and soybeans. Other plant-based foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts and legumes can also help.
