In my 30-plus years of practice, I’ve found that most women eventually see an end to menopause hot flashes and night sweatseven if it takes a few years. But unfortunately, some women never become completely immune to these symptoms, regardless of their age.
About half of menopausal women suffering from hot flashes see them disappear within a year, even without hormone replacement therapy, while another 30 percent experience these symptoms for up to three years. The last 20 percent of women endure menopause hot flashes for five to ten years or longer. I’ve worked with women in their 60s, 70s, and even early 80s who continue to have menopause hot flashes if they’re not on some form of hormone replacement therapy. Luckily, safe, natural therapies for menopause such as vitamin E, black cohosh, and soy isoflavones (which Ive talked about in other posts) are useful in eliminating menopause hot flashes, no matter what your age.
This combination not only eliminates menopause hot flashes, but also provides additional support to the cardiovascular system and bones. As a rule, I recommend taking the following daily dosages for menopause relief: 4001,000 IU vitamin E; 80160 mg black cohosh; and 50 mg150 mg soy isoflavones.
