I noted the recent discussion about flushed face and eating -- and wondered if this could be further elaborated on... I am not overweight (5"4, 60kg) and I eat what I consider to be a healthy diet (mostly vegetarian, plenty of vegetables, fibre, and variety.. average day might be: homemade, fresh smoothy with fruit, yogurt & rice milk for b'fast, tuna salad for lunch, vegetable curry with tofu for dinner.. no caffeine, herbal teas). But I frequently find that if I eat a hot meal (particularly at lunch) or drink peppermint tea -- that I get an extremely flushed face -- nose & cheeks particularly -- with a very hot sensation. I've previously mentioned it to doctors, naturopaths.. i've tried de-toxing my liver (no effect). I don't drink much alcohol -- poss 3 to 6 standard drinks. I'm pretty active -- walk at least 30 minutes most days, climb stairs rather than catch lift..
