The severity and duration of hot flashes varies among women going through menopause
. Some women have hot flashes for a very short time during menopause. Other women may have hot flashes at least to some degree for life.
To prevent hot flashes, your mother should avoid these triggers: Stress
,Caffeine, Alcohol,Spicy foods,Tight clothing, Heat and Cigarette smoke
Other things she can do to keep hot flashes at bay include:
Stay cool. Try deep, slow abdominal breathing ,exercise daily
Your mother can go in for hormone replacement therapy
(HRT) under the expert guidance of a gynaecologist or an endocrinologist
You both and your doctor may decide that hormones are or are not needed for a short time to help with symptoms of hot flushes.
Hot flushes are linked to lower estrogen
