Night Sweats, Chills, and other Menopausal Symptoms

Night sweats are one of the most common symptoms of menopause, and can be very uncomfortable.

What Causes Night Sweats and Chills?

The cause of most menopausal symptoms is fluctuating hormones, specifically estrogen. When estrogen levels start fluctuating, it affects the hypothalamus which regulates body temperature, causing it to misread the actual temperature and leads to episodes of profuse sweating as it tries to cool the body for no real reason.

What contributes to night sweats?

There are various factors that can increase the chances and severity of night sweats. These include:

Environmental Factors:

  • Too many blankets
  • Sleeping next to your partner
  • High room temperature
  • Warm weather
  • Visiting the sauna

Emotional Factors:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Lifestyle factors:

  • Spicy foods
  • Alcoholic drinks
  • Caffeine
  • Diet pills and other medication
  • Smoking

To manage night sweats on a natural way, you should firstly try and avoid the factors mentioned above. However, sometimes it is not easy to do this, and you might need a little extra help.
