caused by menopause
Approximately 80% of North
Americain women experience menopausal hot flashes and night sweats to
Their symptoms typically include sudden feelings
of intense heat, particularly in the upper body area (chest, neck and
face), a rise of skin temperature (the skin can redden), and sweating
that can be profuse and can end with chills. Depending on the person,
their frequency will vary from a few times a week to several times a
day, and they will last from a few minutes to as much as half an hour.
When hot flashes occur at night, they are referred to as night sweats.
The moisture (sometimes called hot flushes) generated
by night sweats may happen once or several times through the
night. Soaked in their own perspiration, these women wake up in the
middle of the night and often have to change their nightwear,
pillowcase, sometimes even the whole bedding (!) before going back to
hot flashes and night sweats
A- Traditional therapy,
- Medical therapy
Hormone replacement therapy: estrogen
(sometimes mixed with progesterone) is the most efficient medical
treatment. However, many health risks are linked to the use of this
hormone treatment and it seems to outweigh its benefits.
Some antidepressant drugs, such as Venlafaxine
(Effexor), Paroxetine (Paxil) and Fluoxetine (Prozac), though less
efficient than estrogen, can reduce the frequency of hot flashes.
Other drugs, such as Gabapentine (Neurontin),
a neurologic medication, and Clonidine (Catapres and others), a high
blood pressure medication, have been moderately efficient.

(2 women) of their symptoms in their testimonial, but it had been as
an additional, unexpected benefit.

sweats, one might expect that, taken on a regular basis and
depending on the person, the apple cider vinegar tonic could potentially

hot flashes now have an

take the apple cider vinegar tonic between meals or before going to

I started drinking apple cider vinegar to prevent hot flashes from post-pregnancy hormones.
They virtually went away once I started drinking it, but then I also read that acv can help cure yeast infections. I struggled with these my entire pregnancy, and even after the baby was born.
I kept drinking the acv to keep the bacteria ratios in my body like they should be, and I haven't had a hot flash or yeast infection since! Wish I had known this months ago!

I had no idea that ACV would relieve hot flashes and night sweats!
I started using it for my cholesterol and belly fat! After a week I noticed my night sweats and hot flashes were disappearing! I was thrilled!
So I started to do more research on the benefits of ACV and read it can treat menopausal symptoms!! This truly works! It is fantastic! I even sleep better and feel great!
I mix 2 tbsp of Bragg Organic ACV with a cup of water and drink it once a day before my meal. I am amazed of all its health benefits! I will continue using it!

I am cured of the hot flushes
(it was really unbearable!!!!) caused by menopause, thanks to the tonic
of apple cider vinegar mixed in a glass of vegetable juice after lunch.
Approximately 30 minutes after
that meal, I pour myself a large glass of vegetable juice (Garden
Cocktail, 10 ounces approximately) and I mix in at least 3 tablespoons
(45 ml) of apple cider vinegar. I then enjoy my drink!
I sometimes take the same
quantity of apple cider vinegar during the day, this time diluted with
I am so happy! I used to wake
up 5 or 6 times a night, soaked with perspiration!
I can sleep well now. My
disturbing night sweats are gone!
Thanks a lot!
