Stop suffering from the effects of hot flashes. There are many great natural remedies to help restore hormonal balance. Here are some of my favorite cool remedies for hot flashes:
A traditionally-used plant of the native people of Peru as far back as 3800 BC, maca is a root that provides a tonic for the whole endocrine system of the body, thereby helping to balance hormones, restore depleted glands, and improving the body’s ability to cope with stresses of all kinds, including hormonal changes. Most women who’ve used maca notice a significant drop in hot flashes. Dosage varies from product to product so it is best to follow package instructions and choose certified organic as much as possible. It’s available in both powder and capsule format.
Black cohosh is an herb that has been used by Native Americans for hundreds of years to treat hormonal imbalances linked to menstrual cramps and menopausal symptoms. Today, herbalists use the herb or its extract to treat a wide variety of hormonally-linked symptoms, including: hot flashes, irritability, mood swings, sleep disturbances, and vaginal dryness. A typical dose is two to three cups of tea daily, one teaspoon of extract two to three times daily, or in capsule form (follow package instructions).
Clary Sage Essential Oil
Due to estrogen-like properties, clary sage essential oil can help balance hormones in both menstruating and menopausal women. It may decrease excessive menstruation, lactation, and alleviate menopausal symptoms like hot flashes. The most direct route affect hormones in the brain is through inhalation; however, diluting sage essential oil diluted in a massage oil like sweet almond or grapeseed and massaging it onto the abdomen can also be beneficial.
