Hi, I am Dr. Maura McGill, I am an expert in natural hormone treatments.
Today I want to answer your questions about the treatments for hot flashes. Are you having hot flashes? What do they feel like? They feel like a surge of warmth that comes right up your body and that goes to your face. You think your face is going to explode with heat. Some women burst out in a beam of sweat, and some women feel like they just go red and really hot and sometimes although the woman is suffering from a lot of feelings of the hot flashes, but they are not actually all that visible.
Sometimes they are just embarrassed to be that hot. When I was going through menopause, my girlfriend said to me “Maura, don’t fan your face! It’s very aging”. A lot of women are very concerned about fanning their face.
So what are the causes of hot flashes?
Well, traditionally we know that if your estrogen drops away, as we know it does at menopause, then you’re going to get hot flashes. Unfortunately, it’s not all over the world. Not everyone gets hot flashes. It has something to do with our western diet and our western way of life. I blame the plastics, the pesticides, and the preservatives but basically you can fix it by readjusting the estrogen level.
There are other causes for hot flashes and your doctor should be able to go into them – things like thyroid disease, sugar metabolism, a couple of rare gut things, and a couple of things to do with blood pressure. The major cause that is not estrogen has to do with your sugar metabolism. Primarily we know that you get your hot flashes because your estrogen drops away.
At night, you get hot flashes for two reasons; first of all you have been sweating and at night, your body temperature goes down and you will notice the surge in temperature much more.
Secondly, sometimes the sugar metabolism from your food that you’d had in the evening will cause you to have a hot flash at night. Sometimes all of the factors come together at night and of course hot flashes at night are a major factor in insomnia.
