4 Hot Tips for Hot Flushes

4 Hot Tips for Hot Flushes

By Louise Hallinan, Smart Brain Health Centre.

One of the biggest complaints about menopause is Hot flushes (hot flashes).

Hot flushes tend to become more frequent after the periods have finished. That is when our Oestrogen levels are at their lowest.

Hot flushes can also be accompanied by a variety of other symptoms including perspiration, chills, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, headaches, or increased pressure in the head, heart palpitations, loss of concentration and vagueness.


  • Reduce Caffeine and Alcohol, especially Red Wine – they aggravate hot flushes
  • Include these foods in your diet - they contain Phytoestrogens, which are plant estrogens. Soy beans, tofu, tempeh, soy beverages, linseed (flax), sesame seeds, berries, oats, barley, dried beans, lentils, yams, rice, alfalfa, mung beans, apples, carrots, pomegranates, wheat germ, rice bran, soy linseed bread, ginseng, fennel and anise.                                                   
  • Choose to eat Organic chicken, meat and dairy and avoid hormone-treated chicken, meat and dairy.  
  • Vitamin D is required – so either get some sunlight exposure in the early morning or late afternoon or take a good Vitamin D3 Supplement.
