Every day about 6,000 women in the U.S. enter into menopause. Although it is a natural part of a women’s life, it can often be an uncomfortable time. One of the most common and unwelcomed symptoms of menopause are hot flashes and night sweats. They’re a result of the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that regulates temperature, mistakenly sensing that a woman is too warm resulting in a series of events to cool her down. Lifestyle habits that can help women manage hot flashes include:

  • Avoiding food triggers. Caffeine, alcohol, spicy foods and even tight clothing can cause hot flashes in some women.
  • Taking time to unwind. The stress hormone cortisol may make some women sensitive to hot flashes.
  • Kicking the habit. There’s one more reason to quit smoking! One study found that heavy smokers were four times more likely to have a hot flash than women who never smoked. Women looking to quit can seek support by consulting a health professional to develop a customized tobacco cessation plan. Homeopathic medicines like Lobelia inflata 6C can also help fight those tobacco cravings.*
  • Dressing in layers. Wearing lightweight clothes, such as tanks and cardigans, allow you to shed heavier clothing when a hot flash strikes.
  • Helping your body the natural way. Homeopathy offers a hormone-free choice for women. Blue tube single medicines such as Glonoinum can offer relief for sudden hot flashes with profuse sweating and a throbbing headache; while Lachesis mutus helps relieve hot flashes and night sweats as well as the associated irritability.* These medicines are also included in Boiron’s Cyclease Menopause. These hormone-free and soy-free tablets help reduce the intensity and frequency of hot flashes, without any known drug interactions.*

  2. Hi, My husband had to have his bladder and prostrate removed as a result of aggressive cancer. He never complains about anything but he has had terrible hot flashes ever sense the surgery. The oncologist is keeping his testosterone levels low as a precaution to prevent further cancer. Your product Acteane seems to be helping him to manage the hot flashes better. However, I can’ t seem to find it on your website. He is not a believer in suppliments so when I find him looking for this product I feel it must really work. I am hoping you can help me find it. thank you Merrilea
