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.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
