A. First make sure your thyroid hormone levels are normal as that is another cause of feeling warm.  If the problem is with hot flashes or low estrogen levels, some simple steps are to exercise, do yoga, drink at least 8 glasses of water daily and avoid hot, spicy foods.  Talk with your doctor about using estrogen if that is possible or acceptable for you and about estrogen alternative if that is not.  You can also read two of my books on the: The Soy Solution for Menopause and A Woman

I've been having hot flushes and night sweats for over five years, and I'm just wondering if they will ever end! I did go on to use HRT for the first six months and although it was great and did make the symptoms disappear, I was never happy about being on it, so came off it. Since then I have been plagued with the miseries of menopause. I keep thinking it can't go on forever, but I have to know if anyone else knows how long I can expect this to continue for. I have tried black cohosh and soy milk, but nothing helps to ease the misery.
Thanks
