Make Hot Flashes Only a Memory.

Mar 6, 2008
Hot flashes are a part of menopause, which is a process that every female body goes through when it reaches a certain age. Hot flashes are just one symptom of menopause, but often the most popularly treated. The stress of hot flashes often begins to interfere with the well being of menopausal woman, and so they seek treatment.

There are treatments available for just the symptoms of hot flashes and also treatments that claim to reduce all of the symptoms of menopause. It is important before beginning treatments to know which symptoms are affecting you and how often.

The best thing for the body is an all natural remedy. Natural remedies and herbs can have a profound effect on a given problem, such as hot flashes and menopause, without having the negative side effects that prescribed medication sometimes carry. To this end, plant estrogens, isoflavones, black cohosh, and vitamin E have all had clinical success in treating the underlying problem of menopause.

If these have no effect, or for any reason you need to take a different route, there are many prescription medications, as well as over the counter medications, available as hot flash treatments. Hot flashes can be a thing of the past after a short talk with your doctor. They can give you information on what is available and what you can do to cope with the discomfort.

The most widely prescribed hot flash treatment is estrogen. This is referred to as hormone replacement therapy, as it is a lack of the hormone estrogen that brings on the symptoms. This can be administered in a few ways, including patch and oral forms.

The downside of hormone replacement therapy is that it can increase your risk of cancer and stroke. Make sure you ask your doctor about these risks, as well as other side effects, if you are considering this treatment.

Besides the treatments mentioned above, there are other alternatives. Since each person may respond best to a different treatment, it is important to try more than one treatment if the first treatment does not work well enough for your satisfaction.

With so many available options, no one should have to suffer through menopause if they do not want to. Research the treatment options, talk to your doctor, and be patient after starting a new treatment.
