HOT FLASHES ARE SO NOT HOT
Hot Flashes and Night Sweats
The hypothalamus is responsible for a few bodily controls but is most important to women in perimenopause and menopause because it is responsible for controlling body temperature.
Hormones are responsible for controlling body temperature so when a woman’s body stops producing hormones her body temperature may fluctuate.
You’re enjoying your day, when suddenly a feeling of warmth overcomes your upper body, increasing in intensity. It might have started in your face, but it rapidly spreads to your neck, and then to your chest. The warmth intensifies, causing your skin to redden and you suddenly begin to sweat. It lasts for a moment, and then you feel your temperature begin to regulate, you possibly even feel chilled once your temperature drops. Sound familiar?
Hot flashes are one of the many disruptive, unfortunate symptoms of menopause. While aging and menopause are inevitable for the female body, you shouldn’t have to simply survive this sometimes 10-year-long process.
Hormones act as messengers for our regulatory system. As we age, our hormone production levels begin to naturally decline to result in a hormone imbalance.
