Hot Flashes or Menopause
Menopause is defined as occurring 6-12 months after your last menstrual period. The average age in the United States is 51; however, it can occur in your 40’s and 50’s. Menopause is a natural biological process. Symptoms may disrupt your sleep, lower your energy sexual drive for some women and trigger anxiety or feelings of sadness.

Hot Flashes commonly occur in menopausal women and can cause sweating, sudden heat, and a flushed face. The cause is unknown, however there are several possible hot flash triggers including alcohol, caffeine, and stress. Staying cool and hydrated, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can reduce the severity of hot flash symptoms.
