Home Remedies - Hot Flushes - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Risk factors for menopausal concerns include:-

  • Low estrogen
  • Diets low in phytoestrogens-flaxseeds, peanuts, macadamias, rice bran oil promotes endorphin release
  • Insulin resistence
  • Anxiety, fear, tension
  • Adrenal stress depletes magnesium
  • Thyroid imbalance
  • Low body weight
  • Premature menopause
  • Neurotransmitter imbalances

Dietary Suggestions:

  • Increase magnesium intake - magnesium regulates body temp, vasodilation of blood vessels. Magnesium holds potassium in cells.
  • Increase potassium intake - potassium increases secretion of hormones.Increase intake of sea weed, wheat bran/germ, nuts, bananas, molasses, rye brewers yeast, dark green vegetables, sunflowers and whole grains.
  • Drink sage tea.
  • Gain up to a pound a year for ten years. Thin women have more hot flashes and an altogether more difficult menopause than heavier women. Fat cells produce estrone, a kind of oestrogen. 
  • Eat more soy products
