Health Tip: Relieving Hot Flashes

(HealthDay News) -- Hot flashes are often felt by women who are going through menopause and perimenopause, says Cleveland Clinic. More than two-thirds of menopausal women in North America have hot flashes, the clinic says.

To relieve hot flashes, Cleveland Clinic suggests identifying and avoiding triggers. Common ones include heat, smoking, caffeine, sugar, spicy foods, alcohol or stress.

Reducing the temperature in certain rooms, or avoiding caffeine can help ease hot flashes. Prescription and over-the-counter remedies are also available. Cleveland Clinic recommends discussing these options with your doctor.
