Hot flushes are one of the most googled symptoms of menopause. A HUGE percentage of women going through menopause suffer from hot flushes in varying degrees.

Some of you just at night
Some of you all day long
Some lasting a few seconds
Some lasting longer
Some are just hot and flushed while others sweat
Some trigger panic ....
I'm sure we can all agree they SUCK!
Now, while each of you will need different support to get them under control, there are some things you can all do that will help.

What I am about to suggest may seem silly, like that can't possible help.... but it does! and let’s face it, you have nothing to lose by trying.

1 - make your out breath longer than your in breath.
When you are in the throes of a hot flush you need to calm your nervous system. So, by breathing in for the count of 4 and out for the count of 6 will dramatically decrease how intense and how long the hot flush will last.

2 - decrease the caffeine and alcohol... I know sorry.... but they do have a huge impact. So save the glass of wine for when you are out with the girls and the coffee for catch ups with family not every morning and night.

3 - decrease your simple carbohydrate intake.
If your blood sugar is bouncing around it will make your hot flushes more frequent and intense. So get help with your nutrition if you need it.

4 - exercise (but not too much)
it helps you burn off your stress and will decrease how often you have hot flushes. Now don't go mad as it will have the opposite effect. But get moving.

I know I haven't recommended supplements. It's with good reason. There are several natural over the counter supplements that should not be taking willy nilly... They can have negative affect if taken in the wrong amount and for too long, but that is a post for another day...

I know some of these suggestions you may have heard before... but that is because THEY WORK. So, give them a go instead of hunting for the quick fix.

If you want a plan worked out for you then send me a message or book in a consultation.
Big love
Bec
