How to Stop Hot Flashes Using Natural Herbs

Using Natural Herbs to Curb Hot Flashes

For women suffering from hot flashes during menopause and perimenopause, finding a cure is often a long process. With all the pharmaceutical treatments on the market, none compare to natural herbal treatments that have been used for centuries by women in the know.

What Are Hot Flashes

A hot flash is a quick feeling of heat and sometimes a red, flushed face accompanied by sweating.  Some women have a rapid heart rate or chills.  Hot flashes happen when the blood vessels near the skin’s surface dilate to cool, causing the body to break out in a sweat.  Often times they happen at night making it difficult to sleep.  Hot flashes are common among women approaching menopausal age, some are affected more than others. Finding relief in the form of natural herbs helps eliminate stress that accompanies the problem.

What Causes Hot Flashes

As of today the exact cause of hot flashes is unknown.  Hot flashes are the most frequent symptom of menopause and perimenopause.  More than two-thirds of North American women who are heading into menopause have hot flashes. They also affect women who start menopause after chemotherapy or those who have surgery to remove their ovaries.  With so much controversy in the news about hormone replacement therapy (A study known as the women’s health initiative has found an increased risk of heart disease, breast cancer, and other health risks from long term HRT use) With this in mind it’s important that women find reliable natural ingredients they can use to treat various symptoms associated with menopause.

What Natural Options Are Availableflax seeds on a spoon

While hormone therapy is used by many women, others prefer the natural route, taking doses of Vitamin E and Vitamin B to aid in the easing of symptoms. But herbs also play an important role in natural hot flash therapy.  Here are a few of the natural remedies we recommend for those going through this process.

  • Soy based foods.  Adding soy foods to your diet help balance hormone levels. Soy products such as plant estrogen, which is found in isoflavones, contribute an estrogen-similar effect to the body to weaken hot flash symptoms.  There is ongoing research about the safety and efficacy of isolated soy isoflavone supplements. We recommend using natural organic soy foods rather than supplements. Choose from tofu, edamame, soy milk, roasted soy nuts or tempeh.
  • Flaxseed.  Also known as linseed, is used in whole seed and oil form to help ease hot flash symptoms. While there is no hard scientific evidence to back up the support of this claim, women have used it successfully for years. In a small, preliminary study, women halved their hot flashes by eating 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed, twice daily, mixed into their cereal, juice, fruit, or yogurt.
  • Dong quai. Dong quai (Angelica sinensis) is known both in China and the West for its ability to support and maintain the natural balance of female hormones. It does not have estrogenic activity.  This is one of the herbs for menopause that should not be taken if a woman is experiencing heavy bleeding.  There are many forms of this herb available such as supplement form, dried form used to make teas, and even liquid injections.
  • Black cohosh (Cumicifuga racemosa). One of the best-studied traditional herbs for menopause, black cohosh is used to help alleviate some symptoms of menopause, and is considered an effective hot flash remedy. Black cohosh seems to work by supporting and maintaining hormonal levels, which may lessen the severity of hot flashes. Many women report that the herb works well but it isn’t effective for everyone. While any therapy that influences hormonal actions should be a concern, black cohosh does not appear to have estrogenic activity.
  • Evening primrose oil or black currant oil.  This is another herb commonly used to treat hot flashes during menopause. However, this botanical is sometimes accompanied by side effects such as diarrhea and nausea. It’s important to talk to your doctor before combining evening primrose with other medications, such as blood thinning drugs, because it could cause adverse reactions.

The herbs mentioned here only serve as a small reminder of natural cures you can find to treat a single symptom – hot flashes.  There are dozens of other herbs that can help alleviate the other menopausal symptoms women have to endure over the years.

Best Wishes
