Tea for Hot Flashes
I know this may be awkward because I am a guy and I’m asking this, but I’m on a pill for my high triglycerides and one of the side effects is hot flashes. They’re pretty bad (though yet again aren’t all hot flashes?) and they last for a pretty long time, and so I was wondering if anybody has any recommendations for teas/tisanes (or other things, even) that can help with them.
There are most likely not any tisane that can truly reduce the effects of hot flashes or someone would be largly profiting already, as it is a very bothersome condition.
For ‘anyone’ having to put up with hot flashes, the usual advice would be to reduce or remove caffein, sugar and alchohol from the diet.
A recommended herb for hot flashes is sage:
Sage (Salvia Officialis) is a very beneficial herb with many active compounds. For night sweats its antiperspiration (antihydrotic) and phytoestrogen compounds are most valuable. So brew yourself a cup of sage tea as an easy home remedy for hot flashes and night sweats, especially before going to sleep.
What I would recommend is combining other components with sage for a nice symptom relieving tisane.
Chamomile, sage, lemon balm and either peppermint or spearmint.
(the best mix might be 50% chamomile and the other 50% equal parts of the other 3)
hope this helps you.
