May 30th, 2014

Since it is hard to predict when you are going to have a hot flash, minimize them with these helpful suggestions.

The symptoms of menopause of  are not fun, especially when they involve frequent hot flashes. Although there are treatment options that can lessen the symptom of menopause, there are also simple ways to minimize the actual hot flash when it does occur.

Layer Your Clothing

If you suffer from hot flashes, it’s a good idea to layer your clothing. So, when you start to get hot, you can take off a layer or two. It’s hard to predict when a hot flash is going to occur. However, when it does happen, it’s nice to know that you can remove your cardigan and wear only the light tank underneath.

Always Carry Water

As a general rule, you should always have water on hand. When you start to get hot, water is a great way to stay cool. You should also try to stay hydrated regularly to prevent hot flashes. If you are dehydrated, the likelihood of a hot flash is much higher.

Avoid Hot Spots

If possible, avoid hot spots. Sun and hot temperatures can easily stimulate a hot flash.Stay in the shade and wear light clothing that will not make you feel constricted.

Do Not Eat Spicy Food

Spicy food can elevate your body temperature and trigger a hot flash. During menopause, you might also have to avoid other foods that trigger your hormones.

Keep the Room Cool

It’s a good idea to keep your indoor environment as cool as possible. Keep temperature even lower at night to avoid night sweats.
