Natural Cures For Hot Flashes Treatment

There are exceptional alternatives for hot flashes treatment that will amaze you. I will like to introduce you to a few of them here.

A hot flash is the unexpected unpleasant feeling of burning heat. It usually begins in the chest, neck, or face, and spread to other parts of the body. This can cause a mild or heavy sweating. Some people may experience this at night. That is called night sweat.

Sometimes, the sweating can be so heavy that your sheets would need to be changed. Natural hot flashes treatment remedies can alleviate the problem.

Hot flash is mainly caused by menopause. Sometimes it is caused by other hormonal conditions. This affects many women. Some of them experience it way before menopause begins. If it happens before menopause begins, it is called perimenopause.

Hot flashes usually last for about 30 seconds to 5 minutes. They can happen a few times in a year or as often as 20 to 40 times a day.

  • Rely on cotton dresses, pillows, sheets for night sweat. They draw away moisture from the body.
  • Avoid flannel, satin, or cotton/polyester blends which trap wetness around the body.
