I've had good success with flaxseed. I just grind it up in a coffee grinder and I add about a Tablespoon a day to my food and the flashes have subsided.

Calcium tablets and vitamin E should help with Hot flashes. Watch your sugar and caffeine intake. Both of those triggle hot flashes. My cousin will have a hot flash within 20 minutes of consuming sugar.

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!!

Diatomaceous Earth

To Helpplz: I buy mine at a feed store, 50 lbs for $21.00. It's real name is Diatomite Silica. You can buy it at nurseries and garden centers, too, but for far more expensive. We drink ours. I don't have hot flashes when I drink it. I took several tablespoons twice daily, and the next day the flashes quit. I vacationed in the Carribbean without air conditioning for two weeks, and the flashes still didn't happen.

I also quit having gluteal hamstring pulls--I have no idea why they quit the day after I began taking the silica. I'd had them for 5 years previously, as long as I'd been running. However, four months ago I changed my running form from heel strike to forefoot strike, and the hamstring pulls never recurred, even without my taking silica. Strange, but my knees and ankles quit hurting when I changed form, too.

When I quit taking silica, however, my hot flashes returned.

I can't tell what else silica did for me because I am not aware of having any other health problems.

Pine Bark

Hi Carol,

Did you notice if you were bloated with the pine bark? I have tried so many remedies and the ones that worked always caused me to be bloated which was just so depressing as I have already gained a ton of weight over the past few years. Thanks

Hypnosis has been shown to help reduce hot flashes by about 65% in one study and is worth a try.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Cayenne

My allergies were the worst ever this spring so after reading about cures on your website I decided to try ACV and cayenne. Not only did it eliminate my allergy symptoms, but the unexpected side benefits are great! My chronically runny nose -gone, constant throat clearing -gone, red rimmed eyes -gone, HOT FLASHES - GONE! My complexion is clearer and I have more energy. This is unbelievable. I use generic ACV and don't feel the need to switch to unfiltered.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Cayenne
Posted by Linda (Ottawa, ON, Canada) on 11/02/2008

I have just stopped taking estrogen pills, I have been on them for 5 years, now my doctor wants me off them. I have not slept for 2 weeks now,so I will try the acv for sure. I did try it many years ago for stress and I had alot of energy. I felt great, I would put 2 teaspoons of avc and one tablespoon of pure honey with one eight ounce glass of warm water. It is really not too bad to drink.

And for a UTI try one to two capsules of cayenne, the other morning I woke up at 3 in the morning with the urge to go. I never wake up in the middle of the night to got to the bathroom, and I thought to myself aw here we go again, another UTI infection. I had some Cayenne capsule so I took one in the morning and drank water all day. I took another one before supper with more water, well that was the end of that. I had been cured the same day.

My daughter told me about this site, it is great.


Eliminate Caffeine, Drink Apple Cider Vinegar

For 2 years now, I have been able to avoid hot flashes by not having caffeine. I even had to stay away from having too much decaf coffee otherwise the small amount of caffeine in the decaf would cause me to flash. Shortly after I started taking ACV (2 tbsp. 2 times a day) for joint pain, I had read that people were having success with it helping hot flashes. I decided to try drinking regular coffee again and I am still hot flash free! The ACV is wonderful!!!

Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda
Posted by Kolokea (Vancouver, Wa) on 11/11/2009

I use vineger and baking soda to unclog my kitchen sink. Vinegar is an acid you pour it down the sink that is plugged and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then you add the baking soda and this causes a chemical reaction. The vinegar and soda start to fizzle and break up the clog in the drain.

I have never heard of using the two to cure hot flashes. What will this do to my system over time?

I started getting hot flashes two years ago. I went to a health food store and they recommended Proestergin Cream. I checked it out on the computer and it seemed to work for a lot of people. I used the cream for 3 days and noticed immediate relief. After taking it a week my hot flashed when away. After some time I learned when I could miss or when I needed to increase the dozes. I went for a whole year without hot flashes. Now the cream isn't working for me. I have switched brands and gone from Yam extract to Soy extract...nothing works any more.

I will try the ACV tonight, wish me luck...

I have recently started having the most awful hot flushes going literally dripping wet after a shower and after putting on make up. My hair goes flat and lifeless. I have noticed on your site that B vitamins have an effect on your hot flushes and I take them. I shall stop the B vitamins and multi vitamins and try apple cider vinegar (I used to take it for reflux and its great). I will then report back whether or not this has worked.

One should always be careful when trying soy, that they do not have an allergy to it. I do and 1/4 oz of it can send me to the bathroom for hours, whether it be soy milk, tofu, miso,hydrolyzed soy protein, msg,etc. I also puff up like a blowfish... For a lot of skin problems I use extra virgin coconut oil, for upset stomachs, and dieting. I am just going to try ACV for hot flushes now. I will let you know how it turns out.
