I read your comments yesterday and decided to try ACV and it really works! I have had hot flashes and night sweats for 5 years off and on. But when they come its every 20 minutes with a racing heart. I consider my flashes to be extreme! I took two tablespoons full with water at 12:45 yesterday, and only had one small one around three!! Around 8pm I had to take another treatment because they started again but very mild. After the next dose they went away again! I hope this lasts! Because I feel much better!

I have been using ACV for 3 months for very, very bad HF. First worked amazing, and I even got my perod (I'm in early menopose, age of 40), after that hot flashes came back. Still using 2tbs of ACV and BS, molases, vitamine E but still suffer.

To 'worked temporarily'.. Your body may be reacting to the sugar overload with the molasses. I used to take my ACV with agave nectar. Worked great at first. All problems went away. But then the sugar caused an imbalance with Candida, so had to stop. Did a detox to kill Candida with Parax. Then took ACV just with water. Can add Stevia if too bitter.

I started taking a tsp. of apple cider vinegar daily to see if it did anything. I finished a small bottle of unpasteurised vinegar and couldn't see any change, so I stopped taking it. A few days later, I started having mild hot flashes. I had had them before the ACV, and when they went away, I didn't make the connection. While I was taking the vinegar (about six months) I didn't have one hot flash. Now I'm travelling and didn't take any ACV for a couple weeks, and the flashes returned. Still mild, but annoying. I bought a bottle and after about 4 days, the flashes are gone again. It's very clear that ACV does the job.

I have endured hot flashes on a consistent basis for 10 years with no relief. I talked to my doctor to no avail. The sleepness nights, tiredness from lack of sleep and depression were starting to affect my psyche. I felt helpless. But just last week while searching for natural remedies for hot flashes, I found this website listing the ACV remedy and it is a miracle! I take morning and evening and my hot flashes have declined 90% and the ones I have are short and not severe. I am so thankful and although I wish I would have found it 10 years ago....this is a wonderful way to start the new year, with a new me!!

I am thrilled. Tried the Apple Cider vinegar formula for Hot Flashes. It truly cools your being. I was getting flashes twice an hour...Knowing I was going to my Ob-gyn soon I still could not wait until my appointment. Out of desparation, I came upon this wonderful site and tried the ACV, baking soda and water. It worked instantly. Its been three days without a flash. I mix 2 tablesps ACV, 1/4 teasp. baking soda, and 6 oz of warm water. Morning and Evening. Hope it keeps on working.

I've been getting hot flashes every hr lately and it has been hard to deal with. I came across your site and looked up hot flashesand was curious about the apple cider vinegar and water to help with hot flashes.

I tried it last night and slept for most of the night without sweating so I am convinced that it works! I mixed 2 TBSP with 12 ozs of water and drank it slowly. I know that you can't mention brands but I the one I used is organic and starts with a B. I found it at my health food store.

I hope this remedy helps others!

I've been taking two tablespoons of ACV in the morning and two in the evening for a week now and I only have a relief but not cured at all. I was having severe hot flashes every hour and now I am having it every 3 hours. It seems to me that this remedy don't work for everyone I am looking to try anything else.

I have been getting hot flashes at night for just over 6 months and just recently they started during the day but not as severe as nightime. They are so hot, I feel like you could bake cookies or bread on body. I have not spoken with my doctor about them yet or have I tried or taken anything until now. Sadly, ACV hasn't done the trick, they continue. I tried the 2 tblsp with 16 oz water in the evening & ACV with tea/honey in the a.m. for 4 days now... So do I continue & hope or move on to something else?

night sweats/hot flashes: I have been having hot flashes not too bad for 2 years. Then I got Mono and the hot flashes/night seats/all day sweats went to a new level. I did not sleep for more than 2 hours at a time. I happened upon this web site and decided to try ACV last night. 2 tablespoons in about 16-20 oz of water. I slept 12 hours last night no night sweats. I have had 2 mild ones in the last 6 hours since waking so I am going to drink some more. It is hard to take down at first, I had to add some sweetner.

I have been suffering form hot flashes for the past 4 years. I started the HRT 2 years ago. Tried to take in as less as possible to control the flashes,but the kept coming. The medication have caused me so many other problem with my digestive, system reflux and other thing that have made the past two years living in pure hell. I found this site about 2 oclock today. Ran to the store to purchase some ACV added it to a bottle of water and by 5 my flashes had taken a different direction. I was still flashing but not as bad and I will take a second dose in the morning. I have been taking medication to sleep I will let all know how it feel in a few days.

I've been suffering from sever hot flashes for the last 3 1/2 years. I usually get them about every 20 to 30 minutes round the clock. I haven't taken anything for them, I guess I just thought I could tough it out. But the lack of sleep has left me with no energy and big bags under my eyes. I google all the time trying to find relief and most of the websites talk about HRT or bioidenticals. I really don't want to put anything into my body that isn't natural. So I accidently came across the Apple Cider Vinegar hotflash fix. After reading how many women got relief from drinking this, I went straight to the kitchen poured a 16 oz. glass of cold water and put 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in it and drank it. It was hard to swallow and took me about 10 minutes to finish. But that was over 4 hours ago and I have not had a hot flash since the one that I had in the first 15 minutes after I drank it. This is just to easy! Why don't our health care providers tell us about this. Maybe its because no one can make any money off of this easy remedy. I hope it continues to work! I'll keep you posted!!!

I have been tormented by hotflashes for over 6 months straight. Since I have menstrual related grand mal seizures (epilepsy) I didn't want to go on HRT. As my body has been changing I haven't had any seizures for years which is the first time I have ever been seizure free. Anyway the torture has been so severe I started looking for alternative relief and came across this site 2 days ago. I went out and bought some ACV. I took 2 tbls in a glass of water yesterday morning and after 14 hotflashes I quit counting. Going to be faithful to myself I drank it again last night. I only woke up 3 times when trying to sleep and this morning haven't had a flash yet and have been up for just over 2 hrs. I am going to continue on ACV and see what happens. Even if I slow down a bit on the flashes it will give me my life back. Thank you.

A Yea on this one for me:

Apple Cider vinegar cured my night sweats. I'd been waking up drenched in sweat and shivering for the month before and after my period for 10 years. I had full checkups and bloodwork done but no problems could be found. My OB/GYN said that it's just my body's response to fluctuating hormones. Every evening that I took ACV before bed I didn't have the sweats! (I just swallowed 2 tbsp down straight, which I am now reading might not have been the best idea.) I finally got some sleep!

How long did this take to work?

Actually, for me it worked immediately. I'm pretty young- in my 30s, but I've had night sweats since I was in my early 20s due to the way my hormones combine with my panic disorder. This did the trick for me. 2tbsp in at least 16oz of water.

11 Years of Hot Flashs Finally Cured!

Desperate-I found your site-I was ready to just give up living! I tried Black Cohosh, added Dong Quai and got a little relief in the day time but NONE at night. I have had 11 years of HORRID HOT FLASHES-except the few years I took HRT Therapy. I have had 2 precancerous conditions in my life and just did not consider HRT to be the right choice. I had taken NOTHING for 1 year up until 2 weeks ago and had not slept more than 1-2 hours in over 9 months! Suicide was getting to sound painless, as the song goes. I could not think, work, clean or do anything productive. Every hour the fever would hit and then the chills, IT WAS LIKE HAVING THE FLU, 24/7. I tried the herbs about 10 days ago and like I said, got a little relief in the daytime but THEN I FOUND YOU GUYS-I took 2 Tablespoons of ACV with a little stevia and water and the hot flashes STOPPED-I mean STOPPED COLD! I tried 1 Tablespoon a few days later and they started back-I switched back to 2 Tablespoons and they stopped AGAIN!

I can't believe it!!!!! I am symptom free for 7 days now and have slept for the first time in MONTHS!!! THERE ARE NO WORDS TO EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE-
