Started drinking 1 glass of soymilk a day for my hot flashes I am in my second week and do not get hot flashes anymore this advice was giving to me by my sister please try and stay with it for a couple of weeks to get it in your sytem and you will see it works. JS
Soy milk powder cured my hot flashes. I also tried everything under the sun, but the soy milk poweder was the only sure thing. If I miss one dose, they're back! I take a tablespoon in the morning, with tea or over cereal, doesn't matter. Take another dose in the evening if necessary, works like a charm!!

Hi, Thank you so much for your website, because my whole family is healthier and happier due to the natural remedies that I have found here. I am so very happy that I came across this particular remedy, as you can imagine. It was a bit by accident because I had bought my 16 yr old some protein drinks by Bolthouse Farms because, after reading the ingredients, I was impressed by how natural the product was and it also had added vitamins and minerals. My son is playing sports and growing really fast (6'5") now, so I wanted the best for his body. The drink has soy protein in it, and I had heard that soy was one of the best sources for protein. My husband & I also drink it off and on after working out, and the taste is great (believe me, I don't work for the company even though it may sound like I do!) But one night I decided I would warm a cup of it up and drink it before I went to bed.....so I did, and I have not slept this good in a long time. I have not had one hot flash since that first night of the warm drink, and I am sleeping in a more deep sleep than I have done in years! I then remembered that I had read a few months back that in countries where women do not suffer from hot flashes and other menopause problems, it is because they have a diet high in soy. Then it all made sense to me as to why the before bed soy drink had helped me so much. It did not really help my menopause symptoms till I did the warm drink at night. I don't know if it will help others like it did me, but I am going to keep drinking it! Thank you so much.
It was getting to the point where I could not enjoy going out to eat or spend any time with my friend due to the sweats that left me wet from from my head, neck, arms and under my breast. It was so uncomfortable that I felt as if I was going to combust from the heat. Only a women can explain the feeling and how awful it makes you feel. A glass of soy milk a day stopped them, and if I did get one it was very, very mild.
I was having bad hot flushing (menopausal) that lasted for hours especially in the evening. One day I didn't take the whole foods vitamin c I had been taking and hot flushing was 90% better. So my suggestion is to one by one stop taking your supplements to see if they might be making things worse.
please i have a question for ted, i have tried to email him at his address but emails have been returned.i would like to know what he thinks causes menopausal hot flashes and what to do about them. i am not having any luck with remedies. love this website tho.

i tried taking powder of turmeric -- it has been a great thing for the skin and my menopause symptoms are going smooth. Turmeric is best of all the spices -- good for all the ailments basically inside the body and physically also.

Vitamin E works for me. I'm 51 and started having hot flashes almost 2 years ago. At first ACV worked...about 9 months, it was a beautiful thing....then it stopped. I tried loads of other treatments including GNC's packets (didn't work at all), iodine (worked for 3 weeks and then stopped), soy (kinda worked but not totally) and others that didn't work...then I found Vitamin E through this site. I started with 1000 mg using liquid. I put it in my water bottle and sipped it all day. From a different post a reader said she started having hot flashes again while on Vitamin E and reduced her dosage and that seemed to work. I did this also. After 3 or 4 weeks the hot flashes were starting again so I reduced to a 400 mg gel tablet once a day. It works! I still get an occasional hot flash but nothing like I used to.
One other thing I did was to start drinking filtered water. I spent 2 weeks in Mexico this past winter and my hot flashes went away. At the time I was using a soy powder for hot flashes. When I came home I continued with the soy powder but the hot flashes came back with a vengeance. My kids think I'm nuts to filter our "safe" water but they don't have hot flashes...the filtered water may be psychological, I don't know for sure but it works for me. I would chant magic spells if I thought it would keep the hot flashes away.
I am a 48 year old woman have recently started having hot flashes and night sweats. I had no idea how uncomfortable they would be, until it finally happened. I could not sleep because of the constant heat coming and going. During the day, I would have at least 5 episodes of them, but at night I would suffer at least 10 episodes, with constant interruption of sleep. I tried the raw apple cider vinegar with no success. So next I tried the vitamin E. All I had in the cabinet was 1000IU so that is what I took. I must say it worked on the first night, and the second night, so I feel safe in saying it really works. I take it at night about an hour before bed, Peace, Rena.

I have taken vitamin E for years to reduce hot flashes. Works wonders.
I have found wild yam is an excellent cure for hot flashes/night sweats..Try it!
Zinc worked for my hot flashes. I had tried everything: Vit E, Progesterone cream, Herbs, Phytoestrogens, etc. I started using 1 to 2 zinc lozenges, the kind you buy for colds, otc, and I realized my hot flashes were gone. I had them continuosly throughout the day, with cold flashes too. I feel so much better now.
Four months ago hot flashes started coming in very strongly for me. Based on intuition, I started taking a food based zinc supplement and in 2 days the hot flashes were down about 95%!! It's amazing!
