Hot flashes is the most common menopause symptom, and at least 75 percent of menopausal women suffer from it. Hot flashes can occur infrequently or, in severe cases, up to 50 times a day and last anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes each.
They are annoying, frequently embarrassing, and often completely unpredictable. The after-effects may include exhaustion, chill and tightness in the skin and even nervousness in anticipation of another hot flash episode.
DID YOU KNOW? According to an eight year long observational study conducted by Women’s Health Across the Nation (SWAN) and published in Journal of American Medical Association Internal Medicine (JAMA), hot flashes and night sweats can last up to 11.8 years for some women. Ethnicity, younger age, greater perceived stress and symptom sensitivity, lower educational level, and higher depressive symptoms and anxiety at first report of symptoms play a major role why some women experience hot flashes for longer periods of time. The median total hot flashes and night sweats duration was 7.4 years among 3302 women enrolled at 7 US sites.
What causes Hot Flashes?
Hot flashes are caused by the disruptions in the hormonal balance which is regulated by the hypothalamus , a small gland located in the brain.
The hypothalamus acts as the command center for menstruation periods, body temperature, thirst, hunger, water balance, sexual functioning and several other basic body functions.
During perimenopause and menopause, the hypothalamus is not able to communicate with the rest of the body to maintain hormonal balance. This leads to decreased production of the female sex hormone estradiol, also known as estrogen.
In the case of hot flashes, the impaired hypothalamus takes decrease of estradiol levels as a signal that the body is overheating while your temperature is perfectly normal. In response it turns on the cooling mechanisms to dissipate the nonexistent heat by dilating blood vessels, producing sweat, and increasing heart rate. This creates the skin flush that marks the onset of a hot flash.
Hot Flashes and Stress
Studies show that stress contributes to hot flashes and vice versa.
When you are nervous, your body may release the stress hormone epinephrine (also known as adrenaline). This causes blood flow to increase which, as a result, leads to an increase in body temperature. Because hot flashes are a response to an increase in temperature, stress may cause or intensify hot flashes.
Hot Flashes and Quality of Life
Hot flashes cause nothing but discomfort and can significantly lower the quality of life. In a recent Amberen clinical study, women who were able to restore the hormonal balance and bring the estrogen levels back to near normal, find that the frequency and severity of hot flashes diminishes.
How Amberen Relieves Hot Flashes
Amberen decreases frequency and intensity of hot flashes by naturally restoring your hormonal balance without any side effects. It also helps to improve the body’s ability to deal with stress.
You should notice a decrease in your symptoms within the first 30 days of taking Amberen.
The key lies in unique Amberen ingredients which rejuvenate the hypothalamus and fix its function to stabilize hormonal balance. As a result, the hypothalamus stops receiving false body temperature signals, and the hot flashes may no longer occur.
Amberen is the only product that rejuvenates function of the hypothalamus to help relieve hot flashes, night sweats, and other common menopausal symptoms. Amberen does not contain any synthetic hormones, plant-based estrogens, herbs or soy.
Hot Flashes FAQs
1. Why don’t all menopausal women experience hot flashes?
Some women may be more susceptible than others to hot flashes because they lack an appropriate number of estrogen receptors. The fewer estrogen receptors the hypothalamus has, the more estrogen is required, and the more chances are that youll experience hot flashes during menopause.
2. How long can hot flashes last?
According to a recent study, some women may experience hot flashes up to 11.8 years. On average, 7.4 years is a standard duration period of hot flashes and night sweats.
3. Will hot flashes ever end?
Amberen is clinically proven to effectively relief hot flashes and night sweats. You should take Amberen as long as you need it for symptom relief. However, hot flashes will completely stop once you transitioned from postmenopausal stage when your body has adjusted to its altered hormonal state.
4. How should I take Amberen for hot flashes relief?
We recommend you to take 1 orange and 1 white Amberen capsules once a day with water after breakfast. Should you not see the results you want within first two weeks, you may double your dosage for the next two weeks and go back to standard regimen afterwards. Call NurseAid for additional information if needed.
5. Are there any other techniques to minimize hot flashes?
Because hot flashes are caused by the effect of the hormonal imbalance on the hypothalamus, returning estrogen levels near to normal is the most effective and long-term solution for hot flashes relief. Amberen does it naturally without any hormones, plant estrogens or soy. However, identifying hot flash “triggers” may be something a woman can benefit from in addition to Amberen treatment. For example, certain foods, environmental conditions, emotional situations may stimulate a hot flash reaction, and women can try to avoid these.
Other Symptoms of Menopause
Menopause is not an illness but a natural, albeit unpleasant, part of aging.
The symptoms of menopause are primarily related to an overall decline of hormones resulting in hormonal imbalance. Only Amberen targets the root cause of menopause by restoring hormonal balance naturally.
