Hot flashes are so common that about 80% of women have them during the menopause transition. A hot flash means you have a sudden wave of extreme heat occurring any time, causing heavy sweating. They can last 30 seconds or longer.
Hot flashes are tough to get rid of. Some women resort to HRT for relief, despite the warnings of high risk that link it to cancer and other life threatening diseases. They were unaware that a safer effective alternative existed that could offer effective relief.
What is the cause of a hot flash?
Dr. John Lee believes, “Hot flushes are not a sign of estrogen deficiency, per se, but are due to heightened hypothalamic activity (vasomotor ability), secondary to low levels of estrogen and progesterone, which, if raised, would produce a negative feedback effect to the pituitary and hypothalamus. Once progesterone levels are raised, estrogen receptors in these areas become more sensitive and hot flushes usually subside.”
Hot Flashes and Bio-identical Progesterone
Why is bio-identical progesterone so effective for over 150 symptoms? Progesterone is a precursor to all other hormones in the body including estrogen, testosterone, and corticosteroids (the stress hormone). Progesterone is made from the cholesterol in your body, which is the fatty tissue. Progesterone balances your hormones if you have high or low estrogen or high or low progesterone. It affects your entire endocrine system. It may address the cause of all your hormone symptoms. Progesterone is the only bioidentical hormone that may effectively achieve relief for your symptoms.
