Herbal Remedy for Hot Flashes

A herbal remedy for hot flashes can also bring relief from night sweats.

The menopause is not a disease, but it can have some unpleasant symptoms.

In the years leading to the menopause, many women suffer from hot flashes (hot flushes) irritability and night sweats.


This is followed by increased risk of heart disease, a decline in bone mass, vaginal dryness and a lack of libido.

The reason is that the ovaries gradually (or in the case of a radical hysterectomy) suddenly stop producing oestrogen and progesterone.

The first herb to try is Black Cohosh - 40mg extract twice a day.

In addition, take Chasteberry - 100 mg a day.

These herbs help stabalise hormone levels, reduce hot flashes and lessen depression and vaginal dryness.

In addition to the natural remedy, you should try to avoid alcohol, chocolate, coffee and spicy foods. These can make hot flashes worse.

Get regular excercise.

Some women find that a lukewarm bath in the morning (soak for about 20 minutes) will reduce hot flashes.

Similarly, a lukewarm bath before bed can reduce night sweats.

Your hot flashes will pass in time, but things can be really unpleasant at times.

These herbal remedies could help you if you don't want to resort to chemical HRT.
