Hot flushes are distinctive: a sudden feeling of heat that spreads through your body, often accompanied by sweating and flushed skin.
HRT will stop them completely, but here are 8 natural remedies for hot flushes to try during menopause.
1.Wear lighter layers so you can quickly remove any if need be.
2.Spray your face with a cool water atomiser if you feel a flush coming on, and sip cold drinks.
3.Have a lukewarm bath or shower, instead of hot.
4.Keep your bedroom cool and wear silk or cotton pyjamas.
5.Reduce stress by upping exercise. Just don’t do any exercise two hours before bedtime.
6.Avoid hot-flush triggers like caffeine, spicy food and alcohol.
7.Buy a wool duvet because wool fibres naturally pull heat away from the body.
8. Take an extra supplement that contains the agnus castus plant, as it helps with hormonal balance.
