Hot flashes — a defining symptom of menopause — can seriously disrupt your life.
A hot flash can occur without warning, creating embarrassing episodes especially
if your face flushes, or if you routinely perspire through your clothes. As night
sweats, they can wake you from a sound sleep, with your pajamas and sheets soaked
“One day I was giving a speech…and the sweat was just pouring off me! My night sweats
were so bad I literally would have to change the sheets in the middle of the night.
Now, I’m having no symptoms, no night sweats — nothing.”
When you have a hot flash, the temperature-regulating area within your brain — in
the hypothalamus — is “tricked” into trying to get rid of extra body heat. The hypothalamus
sends cool-down signals telling your blood vessels to dilate, your heart rate to
increase, and your sweat glands to open up wide.
The result is a sudden, intense — and unpleasant — rush of heat, often accompanied
by drenching perspiration, dizziness, and even heart palpitations. You may also
feel nauseated or weak, and have a crawling sensation on your skin.
Hot flashes — indicators that something bigger is going on
When your body is trying to juggle a lot of demands — and isn’t getting enough support
— the ability to balance hormones is overwhelmed. This resulting hormonal imbalance
can send false messages to your hypothalamus, giving rise to hot flashes or night
sweats — often the first symptoms women notice as they approach the midlife transition
in perimenopause. For many women, hot flashes and night sweats persist right through
Other factors that can contribute to hot flashes:
- If you have high levels of anxiety, it can make you up to five times more likely
to experience hot flashes and night sweats.
- Certain foods like sugar, caffeine, alcohol, and hot spices are known to trigger
hot flashes in some women.
- Women with hot flashes and night sweats often report related symptoms of hormonal
imbalance, such as insomnia, anxiety, fatigue, and headaches.
What about HRT or a “magic pill” for hot flashes?
Today, the choice to use HRT (hormone replacement therapy) is a personal one, but
it used to be conventional medicine’s go-to solution for menopausal symptoms. Now
more women are experimenting with single-ingredient supplements from the drug store
or so-called “magic pills” that don’t address the underlying problem of hormonal
imbalance and cannot offer the lasting results that more comprehensive approaches
do. For example, single herbs like black cohosh only work for a minority of women.
There are effective, natural options that work to restore balance to the three key
hormones that fluctuate during perimenopause and menopause: estrogen, progesterone,
and testosterone. These options offer the best long-term relief — without subjecting
you to the known risks and frequent side effects of HRT.
