Science based Natural Remedies for Hot Flushes and Night Sweats

Women may feel there are no effective improvements in hot flushes and night sweats except hormone therapy or perhaps a newer type of anti-depressive medication. They rightly may not want to take either of these kinds of medicines and feel instead they must either suffer or go through the pharmacy aisles to try all manner of herbal and alternative therapies most of which have not been tested scientifically or, if they have, are not better than a placebo (inactive or "dummy") pill. The reality is that a lot of very sensible and generally healthy strategies have been shown to improve hot flushes. These approaches and the scientific support for them are described in this article in the journal of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Physicians (July 2013).
