Let’s talk a bit about those awful hot flushes and night sweats because it’s one of the most complained about symptoms and also one of the most misunderstood.
Generally speaking they are assumed to be a symptom of menopause however in almost 90% of cases this assumption is incorrect.
How can I say this with such assurance?
Well for me the data reads that 90% of my clients who have been suffering from hot flushes, we have treated for adrenal fatigue and they have stopped. Experience, data and real life situations wins every time.
Hot flushes are also the bodies mechanism to tell you that your adrenals are not happy.
Adrenals working overtime for the last 40 or more years and they will start to tell you via waking you up in the middle of the night, heart palpitations, blood sugar cravings and hot flushes.
Hot flushes could also be certain foods triggering this response and it might be food that you have been eating all your life but now your body won’t tolerate it.
This can be a sign of an auto-immune condition in the making and it’s highly advised to conduct the appropriate tests to see what your immune system is looking like.
YES I can help you with the tests of course but you can get a saliva test done with most Naturopaths or Functional Medicine Practitioners like me. Or you can simply treat for adrenal fatigue using supportive foods and removing triggering foods that wear down on the adrenals.
Look out for my new post where I explain in more detail the difference between hot flushes and night sweats (besides the obvious).
P.S. We can heal adrenals AND we can find out those food triggers so there is no need to suffer.
