The two most common symptoms of menopause are hot flashes and night sweats.

More than 80% of women suffer with either hot flashes or night sweats during perimenopause. The symptoms are very similar and caused by the same triggers. If you experience a hot flash you will most likely experience night sweats. 

Internal factors that cause hot flashes and night sweats.

During perimenopause estrogen levels decrease and hormones become out of balance in the body triggering a series of internal activities which causes the hypothalamus (part of the brain that controls body temperature) to inaccurately detect increased body temperature. The body then goes to cool down mode by expanding blood vessels near the surface of the skin that results in flushing and sweating.

 

External factors can also increase hot flashes and night sweats.

  • Alcohol is a hot flash trigger. The body treats it as a toxin and sweating is a result. When the body cannot metabolize alcohol particles, alcohol is passed through the skin as sweat.
  • Caffeine is a hot flash trigger. By stimulating internal activity caffeine raises body temperature, which an trigger hot flashes and night sweats.
  • Hot environments and spicy foods can trigger hot flashes and night sweats by increasing body temperature causing flushing and sweating.
  • Smoking can also trigger hot flashes and night sweats.

Phytoestrogens can help hot flashes and night sweats.

Phytoestrogens are found in nuts, seeds, and soy products. Phytoestrogens replenish depleted levels of estrogen in the body that help regulate internal imbalances and reduce hormonal symptoms, including hot flashes and night sweats. By incorporating phytoestrogens into your diet, you can reduce the intensity of hot flashes and night sweats.
