Hot Flash Relief?


Bronze Feedback Medal for All Time! 189 Feedbacks

I would like to know if any Thrifty Fun folks out there have any tips to relieve hot flashes? It's summer in Texas and I've been having more and more of them. Any ideas would be so helpful. Thanks.

Soy is very good for this. Eat some tofu or drink some soy milk.

You can increase natural estrogen with soy products such as the beverage (milk) for cereal. Flax seed, either on its own or as supplements help. Run cold water on your wrists to help reduce the intensity while having your power surges. ;)

You can also do a circular massage on the large 'bump' vertebrae on the back of your neck. This is an acupressure point for heat control that will help things move more quickly.
Sweating in sympathy.

The soy advice is sound. Here's what webmd.com says:

Also, go to the dollar stores and get the eye masks and joint remedies that are gels to keep in the fridge. They help at night. Sometimes while trying to crawl into the freezer, open your eyes and grab that bag of peas.

It's wonderful on your face, back of the neck, or anywhere you need some relief.
I went through this at 23 so I can at least know it's not coming now at 57!

Keep hydrated, too. Lemon and cucumber (in separate containers) is a refreshing way to drink more water. Good luck!

I recommend buying the Chillo Pillow - Drugstore.com sells them. You'll sleep like a baby. Also, if you can sew, making some cooling neckties for during the day. You can fill the tube with 1 tbsp. of the Moisture Crystals that Home Depot sells in their garden department.

If you don't know what cooling neckties are, you can Google websites that sell them. It's basically a tube of material that ties around your neck.

You fill the tube with the moisture crystals and wet the whole thing, tie it around your neck, and you'll keep your body temperature down.

A lot of people also sell these during the summer at music festivals and craft fairs. Super easy to make some for yourself, and in colors and fabrics that you like best. 100% cotton fabric is best.

Correction - it's spelled Chillow Pillow - Amazon also carries them.

And also a link to make your own cooling neckties

Again, I find the Moisture Crystals that Home Depot sells in the garden department work perfect.

Be sure and drink plenty of water. I have found that extra Vitamin E helps (don't overdo it). Black Cohosh is also very effective.

Soy is probably the most practical thing in terms of cost and safety and ease of use.

Black cohosh helps me with my hot flashes. It's sold almost everywhere and is located in the vitamin section. Good luck!
