Hot flashes

Hot flashes and hormonal night sweats occur unexpectedly, and usually at the worst possible time. It’s a little frightening to wake up in the middle of the night in a pool of sweat — not to mention, extremely unpleasant. Hot flashes will make your make-up run, test the strength of your personal grooming habits and keep you on edge, always wondering when the next one will strike. Prescription medications are available, but they aren’t an option for every hot flash sufferer for various reasons.

Sufferers are always looking for ways to stop hot flashes and get hormonal night sweats under control. Pay attention to when your hot flashes are occurring, and what you’re eating and drinking beforehand, to learn how to avoid certain triggers that cause hot flashes. Weeding out triggers will help reduce hot flashes, and herbal remedies may help you put a stop to them completely.

Herbal cures for hot flashes and hormonal night sweats

In studies, flaxseed failed as a viable cure for hot flashes, but you may not want to give up on finding a natural cure just yet. The most common symptom of menopause, hot flashes strike many pre-menopausal and menopausal women with unbearable heat, tension and uncontrollable sweating. Many plants containing natural estrogen can help.

St. John’s wort and black cohosh are common herbs that have been touted as having the ability to stop hot flashes. Both are available in supplement form in pharmacies and grocery stores. Other herbs that are a little more difficult to obtain may be found in homeopathic stores and home gardens. The Chinese herb dong quai is thought to contain natural estrogen that may help alleviate hot flashes, hormonal night sweats (which are essentially night time hot flashes) and other menopause symptoms.

Primrose oil, ginseng, licorice root, sarsaparilla, spearmint, motherwort and wild yams have all been cited as herbal cures for menopause symptoms as well. All of these plants contain natural plant estrogens and grow in the ground, but that doesn’t mean they’re 100% safe. You should always consult with your doctor before beginning any medication regime, no matter how harmless it may seem. Many modern pharmaceuticals make use of natural plant extracts, and you never know how your regular medicines will interact with any herbal cures you may try.
