Hot Flashes. 10 Amazing Foods That Help Relieve Menopausal
Hot Flashes. Many women who are experiencing menopause
complain of hot flashes. In fact, it is the most common complaint,
affecting almost 80% of women. This often debilitating, or at the very least
annoying symptom can cause a lot of discomfort and stress to the woman who suffers from them,
and can greatly impact quality of life. There are treatments for hot flashes, with
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) being the most effective, however it does carry risks,
especially for women 60 or older, and others with risk factors for certain conditions. The good news is that HRT is not only your
only option for dealing with hot flashes. A study that was published in the American
Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that simple changes to your diet can help relieve
the hot flashes. The study spanned nine years and researchers
found that a woman’s likelihood of experiencing hot flashes dropped by 20% when they incorporated
some of the following ten foods into their diets. 1. Soy. High in isoflavones, plant estrogens are thought
to have estrogen like effects to reduce hot flashes. Soy has the highest amounts of isoflavones,
with the highest levels being found in soybeans, chickpeas, and lentils. 2. Eggs. Vitamin B, which is found in eggs, plays an
important part in allowing the adrenal gland function to stabilize. Stabilizing the adrenal gland promotes estrogen
and progesterone balance, which greatly reduces the chances of a hot flash. 3. Garlic. Eating at least one clove of garlic per day,
either raw or cooked, can help balance your hormones and prevent hot flashes. This is because garlic contains phytoestrogens,
which are a plant-based hormone that mimics your body’s estrogen. 4. Mushrooms. Mushrooms contain a mineral called selenium. People with low levels of selenium have been
found to have higher stress levels. Having high stress levels triggers a rise
in epinephrine, which in turn, triggers hot flashes to occur. Maitake and shiitake mushrooms have the highest
levels of selenium, and are thought to be the best choices. 5. Bell peppers. Vitamin C is known for its hormone stabilizing
properties. Even though yellow bell peppers are the highest
in vitamin C, red and green bell peppers are both good options as well. Bell peppers also contribute to the management
of blood sugar levels. Maintaining balance in the blood sugar levels
can reduce hot flashes. 6. Salad greens. Salad greens provide the body with antioxidants
and promote healthy blood sugar levels that help stabilize estrogen levels. Regulating blood sugar and estrogen levels
reduces the chances of hot flashes. 7. Strawberries. Similar to garlic, strawberries are high in
phytoestrogens that help keep hormone levels balanced. Also high in vitamin C, strawberries are a
great addition to a diet that aims to reduce hot flashes. 8. Pineapples. Also high in vitamin C, pineapples help prevent
chemical changes to estrogen which can help prevent hot flashes. 9. Melon. Honeydew, watermelon, and cantaloupe are more
great choices to get vitamin C into your diet. Another great benefit to melons is they can
help cool you down when you are experiencing a hot flash. 10. Whole wheat pasta. Unlike white flour pasta, which is high in
starch and can trigger a hot flash, whole-wheat pasta contains fiber to help manage your blood
sugars as well as phytoestrogens. If you aren’t a fan of pasta, another option
for phytoestrogens is whole-grain breads. Final Thoughts
Adding the foods above will help limit hot flashes. In addition, it is important to cut out foods
that can trigger hot flashes. Among the top foods are dairy products. spicy foods. alcohol, and caffeine. These foods will not just trigger hot flashes
but they can also create hormonal imbalances, leading to mood swings and increase the level
of acid in the blood. You don’t need to do an entire overhaul
on your diet all at once. In fact, if you do you will likely not be
able to stick to the changes. The best way to make the changes is to slowly
substitute one food at a time. By simply changing a few of your dietary habits,
your hot flashes can soon be a thing of the past. If you’ve liked the video give it a thumb
