I believe I am peri-meno, because of my age, and I do get night sweats at times and seem to be gaining weight in my middle. Isn't being a woman fun?!!!!! ;-)

Anyway, I have noticed that if I eat snacks after dinner I will get night sweats. It seems like the higher the calories, the worse it is.

The trick for me is not eating after dinner. sigh.

Good luck to you! :-)

Not over-eating at a sitting can keep hot flashes at minimum or not happening at all. For me, overeating always brings on a hot flash 15-30 minutes after a huge meal. The point where that does not happen is when I only eat 1/2 of a normal plate of food. Also, if I habitually eat grains, potatoes, and sugar (high carb-foods) hot flashes keep me up all night. Sticking to a diet of meat, berry fruit (low carb), and veggies in smaller amounts than I once ate when I was younger and buring vast amounts of calories, has proven to be ideal for this older woman's long-term health and nutritional assimulation. There is also less to nil inflammatory arthritic flareups.

Responding to the emails posted, I think Valentina is closer to the "answers." After a vaginal hysterectomy (kept my ovaries) I started realizing a lot more hot flashes (from 1 or 2 a day to 5-10 hotflashes per day). Took black cohosh which minimized all, but got tired of using it and wanted to help out my liver. I got mad and headed for the organic food section...did a liver cleanse, put myself on 75-90% organic and several weeks later I realized I hadn't had a hot flash for a week, they fluctuate now between 1 a week to none. Now I am seriously studying the ph aspect of my body chemistry. Valentina's email was reinforcement and I am sure I am on the right path. I am now adjusting my grocery list to include a lot more Alkaline forming foods and fewer acid forming foods. Wish me luck. I am 53.

re: Fountain of Youth-- I am 58 years old and I am still asked for an age ID when going into clubs. I have always looked much younger than I am - Here is what I have always done:

* Never take drugs of any kind - no aspirin, no antibiotics, no alcohol, no smoking, This is most important. *

I eat raw salads daily and use generous quantities of Apple Cider Vinegar - Organic - and Organic Olive Oil. Most of the food I consume is raw and occasionally I add a little cottage cheese or organic cheese in small amounts and about one time per month, I eat organic kefir or yogurt - The only cooked food I have is vegetable soup that I make from organic vegetables. I do NOT eat any grains, rice, beans etc. Everyone asks me where I get my protein. Apparently I don't need it.

* Still have not gone through menopause, my hair has no gray, my teeth are just like when I was young - I do yoga daily and callanetics and am very active physically. Most people I know are sick with all kinds of things and they run for a prescription immediately - this, I believe, was the biggest factor for me. Oh one more thing - I also use lots of fresh garlic daily in salads. This may sound difficult, but I find it extremely easy to live like this and cook so minimally. No grease in the kitchen!

Re Night Sweats: I changed to a vegan diet and am no longer having night sweats. Eliminate all meat, all milk products, eggs, and as much oil and butter from the diet as you possibly can.

Don't eat wheat products but change to rye bread, ezekiel bread or other good whole grain bread. You can have sugar in small quantities and use fruit spreads, jams and jellies on toast. You can have refried beans on tortillas or soft tacos with as many of the fixings as you like - just no cheese. Lose weight, stop having night sweats, and control diabetes too.

After three days I lost several pounds, reduced blood pressure, had tons of energy and stopped all night sweats.
