Hot Flash Symptoms

Hot Flash Symptoms

 

During a hot flash, you may experience:

  • A sudden feeling of warmth spreading through your upper body and face
  • A flushed appearance with red, blotchy skin
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Perspiration, mostly on your upper body
  • Feeling chilled as the hot flash subsides

Hot flashes vary in frequency — you may have few or many in a day — and each hot flash usually subsides in a few minutes. They’re particularly common at night. Most women who experience hot flashes have them for more than a year, but they usually stop on their own within four to five years.

Hot Flashes I Hate Them

Hot Flashes I Hate Them

Definition by the Mayo Clinic Staff

Hot flashes are sudden feelings of warmth, which are usually most intense over the face, neck and chest. Your skin may redden, as if you’re blushing. Hot flashes can also cause profuse sweating and may leave you chilled.

Although other hormonal conditions can cause them, hot flashes most commonly are due to menopause — the time when a woman’s menstrual periods stop. In fact, hot flashes are the most common symptom of the menopausal transition.

How often hot flashes occur varies from woman to woman, but usually the range is from one or two a day to one an hour. There are a variety of treatments for particularly bothersome hot flashes.

Ways that I have found to reduce stress in my life and maybe yours too.

1. Take charge  of your thoughts by identifying the sources of your stress. Don’t blame others, deal with it yourself and move on…I got this tip from reading The Modern Woman’s Guide To A Stress-Free Lifestyle

2. Watch how much sleep you are getting. Don’t get too  much or too little sleep is the key.

3. Yoga is my all time favorite technique to use. Breathing and stretching are so healthy that it makes me feel good inside for a very long time. Try it you might like it like me!

4. Slow down and decompress your thoughts by laughing out loud or sing along with the radio.

USAGE OF ALOE VERA

USAGE OF ALOE VERA

USAGE OF ALOE VERA

The aloe vera plant is a succulent  that usually grows without a stem and has thick, green fleshy leaves that can grow as high as 2 or 3 feet.

1. Aloe produces two substances, gel, and latex. Aloe gel is the clear, jelly-like substance found in the leaves. Aloe latex is yellow and comes from under the plants skin.

2. Aloe gel can be consumed and may serve as a treatment for osteoarthritis, diabetes and treat the effects of radiation therapy. It can also be heated, along with water, and inhaled as a vapor for a treatment of asthma.

3. Aloe gel is commonly used topically for psoriasis, sunburn, dry skin and frostbite.

4. Aloe latex has been used for many years in laxatives. This part of the aloe plant can be dangerous, even deadly if consumed in large doses.

5. Makeup remover:  Aloe gel can be used as a makeup remover and can even replace your hair conditioner.

6. Sunburn remedy: Get an ice cube tray and fill it in with aloe gel and freeze. These aloe vera ice cubes are great after too much sun exposure, bug bites, poison ivy, and even psoriasis. They provide extra relief from pain, redness, inflammation or itching. Applying the cooling aloe vera cubes to the bug bites or sunburn is definitely a relaxing and soothing experience.

7. There is some scientific evidence that aloe is able to kill bacteria as well as speed wound healing.

8. Stretch marks: The healing and soothing properties of aloe vera are effective in getting rid of stretch marks.  It will help in increasing cell growth that helps in the reduction of stretch marks. Apply pure aloe vera gel and massage it daily over the affected skin.

9. Bug bites :  Aloe gel can be used to prevent itching from bug bites.

10. Dandruff remedy: Mix a tbsp of lemon juice with 2 tbsp of pure aloe vera gel and use it as a hair mask. Apply the mask to the roots of your hair and let it sit for 30mins before you rinse off.
