The Hot and Cold of Menopause

The Hot and Cold of Menopause

Probably the most common symptom of menopause is a bugger called hot flashes – and it has some friends that often tag along! Some of these “friends” are things like cold feet and sudden chills across your body.

When hot flashes occur you are often left feeling that you want to rip of your clothes and sit in an ice bath, and then sometimes this feeling is immediately extinguished by chills that make you feel as if you have stepped into a freezer.

There are different reasons for hot flashes that range from poor blood circulation to stress, but the main reason is hormonal changes. During menopause, the body suffers from a severe lack of estrogen, and this causes various bodily functions to go haywire.

So How Do You Control Hot Flashes and Chills?


  • Drink plenty of water (10 glasses per day)
  • Eat well balanced meals
  • Avoid spicy foods
  • Stay away from caffeine and alcohol


  • Exercise daily
  • If you are a smoker, kick the habit
  • Keep the temperature inside your home nice and cool
  • Make sure to get enough sleep
