There are many symptoms associated with menopause. One of the most well-known is hot flashes. Holly Lucille, ND, RN, women’s health expert and author of Bottom Line Inc’s The Natural Side of Menopause blog, explains that hot flashes are a resetting of the body’s internal thermostat as a result of hormones. However, Dr. Lucille suggests that women can combat hot flashes through a healthy diet consisting of organic foods rich in phytoestrogens (such as pomegranates and flaxseed) as well as lifestyle interventions including yoga, meditation and acupuncture.
