I'm in my late 40's and experiencing hot flashes fairly regularly. The worst part of going through the "Change" is the restless, sleepless nights. I wake up HOT (not quite night sweats), and then COLD. This goes on multiple times a night and I'm getting chronically tired.
Because my mom had a mastectomy at 60, the doctors felt it was hormone-replacement induced. That was 20 years ago, and I know hormone therapy has evolved, but I'm still hesitant about taking hormones.
Are there any effective, natural ways to deal with Hot Flashes?
