How to avoid hot flushes the natural way
Women can suffer from hot flushes at any time in their life, but they are most frequent during the menopause.
They can be irritating, awkward, and most importantly, embarrassing to a woman.
The causes of hot flushes are not yet known, nor is there a definitive medicine to prohibit them.
However, there are some homeopathic remedies that many menopausal women swear by, helping to both prevent and stop flushes when they appear.
If you feel a hot flush coming on, try and relax. Stress and nervous energy make the flush last longer and become more intense.
Some women practice particular yoga positions when they feel themselves heating up. Breathing calmly and evenly helps to alleviate the flush, as well as keeping you relaxed.
A number of doctors have asserted that deep breathing can reduce the number of hot flushes that a woman suffers. Because of this, yoga may be worth practising even when you're not going through a hot flush.
Some individuals believe that flax seed can be just as effective as hormone replacement medication in calming the severity of hot flushes.
Flax seed is high in fibre so it keeps your body ticking over the way that it should. It is thought to reduce the number of hot flushes a woman gets.
Rich in omega 3, 6 and 9, flax seed oil also has great anti-inflammatory and healing properties.
Things to avoid
Sometimes prevention is the best cure, and there are some simple things you can avoid to lessen the chances of a hot flush coming on.
Many women have found that avoiding caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, hot or spicy foods and hot drinks has helped them during the menopause.
Of course, all women are different. It's best to cut out one thing at a time and see if it has a positive effect on you.

- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi I’ve bought some of your pomegranate oil, together with rosehip and marula oils. Which of the other two oils would be better to mix with pomegranate oil for mature skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and sometimes prone to spots and milia when using rich moisturisers. Also, can I use pomegranate oil by itself or combined with either of the other two oils around my eyes

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Dolores, thank you for your message!Ashwagandha is an adaptogen so will adapt to your own bodies rhythm. It is a powerful way to regulate energy levels through the day so in some people may boost circulation and cell activity, which is why you may find yourself with insomnia. Everyone is unique and different, so will react to herbs and remedies differently. As you are using bio-identical hormones, I would advise you check with your GP, as there are often interferences with herbs. Perhaps you should try taking your Ashwagandha in the morning to regulate your bodies rhythm through the day.
