Symptoms, conditions and causes

What's a hot flash?

A hot flash is a sudden feeling of warmth in the upper body, which is usually most intense over the face, neck and chest. Your skin might redden, as if you’re blushing.

Cause #1: Low progesterone

During menopause, there could be a severe drop in progesterone (the hormone that works together with estrogen). A severe drop in progesterone has hot flashes as a symptom. One thing to know is that stress, high estrogen or menopause will reduce the amount of progesterone in the body.

Remedies:

  • Consume cruciferous vegetables

  • Consume DIM:

  • Consume sea kelp

  • Consume calcium D-glucarate

  • Consume wild yam extract

  • Consume black cohosh

  • Consume chaste tree

  • Avoid stress (because it lowers progesterone)

  • You can also take my Adrenal & Cortisol Support

  • You can also take my Adrenal Stress Advanced Formula

Cause #2: High amounts of stress

Your adrenals (stress-regulating glands) are backup glands to support your body with needed hormones after menopause, when the ovaries are ceasing to function. If you undergo constant high amounts of stress this can wear out your adrenals and make them insufficient.

Remedies:

  • Consume vitamin B1:

• nutritional yeast • benfotiamine

  • Improve your sleep (take naps if needed)

  • Take long walks outside daily (at least 45 minutes)

  • Avoid things and people that stress you out

  • Consume potassium and magnesium

  • You can also take my Adrenal & Cortisol Support

  • You can also take my Adrenal Stress Advanced Formula

Cause #3: Liver problems

There is another potential cause of hot flashes: your liver. Your liver’s purpose is to detoxify chemicals, poisons, heavy metals and excess hormones. It removes excess estrogen, when you have far too much of it. If you have too much cortisol or estrogen, your liver can resolve it, unless it is not properly working.

Remedies:

  • Consume cruciferous vegetables (or DIM)

  • Consume calcium D-glucarate

  • Consume purified bile salts

  • Take choline as a supplement (400 to 500 mg)

  • Consume fattier proteins, make sure they are grass-fed if possible

    • egg yolks

    • you can also eat fatty fish

  • Do an intermittent fasting plan

  • Do the Healthy Keto® diet
