Do you have such symptoms?

  • It’s cool outside, but I can’t stop sweating

Hot flashes” are typical symptoms of menopause, such as

  • Hot feeling and sweating that lasts for 2 to 4 minutes
  • Increases pulse rate

For example, your face suddenly gets hot, and you can’t stop sweating, etc.

About 60% of women experience it. However, it is 10% of them become so severe that it interrupts their daily lives.

Why do you get hot flashes?

Hot flashes are one of the menopause symptoms, and it is related to your women’s hormones.

During peri- or menopause, your women’s hormones called estrogen significantly drops and cause heat sensations in the body.

You also might get anxiety or depression due to an imbalance of the autonomic nervous systems.

What Chinese herbs for hot flashes should you choose?

Er Xian Tang

When you have hot flashes in traditional Chinese medicine, we consider that your body lacks yin energy (Yin deficiency).

Yin acts like water, and yang acts like fire.

Your body is supposed to be the balance of yin and yang. However, once you are in the peri-or menopause stage, you lose the essence and yin energy, causing heat.

With this condition, you can take Er Xian Tang formula.

This formula replenishes Kidney Yin and Yang energy and drains fire to treat hot flashes.

Most ingredients contain cool herbs such as Chinese salvia root, Fo-ti, tree peony, Chinese Cuscuta, and Poria.

Jia Wei Xiao Yao San

When you have hot flashes in traditional Chinese medicine, we also consider that your body has heat from the stagnation of Liver Energy (Qi).

During the peri- or menopause, your autonomic nervous systems, which control the body temperature, get dysfunctional.

In TCM, we call it Liver Qi stagnation. Once the stagnation occurs, eventually, you create heat from it.

With this condition, you can take Jia Wei Xiao Yao San.

This formula modifies Bupleurum and Peony formula and is used for soothing Liver Energy and clear heat to treat Hot flashes.

Geng Nian An Wan

When you lose Yin energy, you also lose the essence, which makes you sweat.

The kidney is the source of prenatal energy you are born with, and you deplete by aging.

So, during menopause, hot flashes happen because you lose the essence.

With this condition, you want to take Geng Nian An Wan.

This formula helps to nourish the yin energy with the essence.

The ingredients of the formula contain herbs with astringents functions to stop sweating.

Therefore, this formula helps with hot flashes.

Where can you get these Chinese herbs?

See an acupuncturist near you.

First, you can talk to your acupuncturist near you.

In the United States, in most states, acupuncturists study Chinese herbs for 4 years in school and are qualified to prescribe them.

Other Remedies

How TCM Sees Hot Flashes in Menopause and Its treatment

Are you suffering from frequent hot flashes because of menopause?

The symptom is prevalent among older women between 45 and 55 years of age. Besides the hot flashes, if you experience night sweats, virginal dryness, sleeping difficulty, mood swing, and loss of sex drive, you are more likely to be having menopause disorder.

Don’t feel alone if you are experiencing the symptoms because, according to a study, 85 % of postmenopausal women have experienced a menopause-related symptom in their lifetime.

The frequency and the duration of hot flashes are different for people, but they should be the lowest possible. In general, hot flashes in menopause can keep for 5 to 10 years.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine’s point of view, menopause disorder is primarily caused by an imbalance of yin and yang in your body, called “Yin Deficiency.” “Yin Deficiency” is the state where yin(a negative side) is losing its power, but yang( a positive side) remains its power, and the imbalance makes heat in your body. 

Here’re four types of yin yang states in which you probably see yourself if you suffer from hot flashes. Each class has different symptoms and different advice.   

Type1 (Yin Deficiency Fire) for hot flashes:

Symptoms: hot flashes on the upper body, red face, sweaty, dizziness, vertigo, ringing in ears, sleep disorder, feeling heavy body, thirsty, red tongue, and little tongue moss.

Type 1 for hot flashes - Yin Deficiency Fire

Type2 (Yin & Yang Deficiency):

The treatment is quite tricky if you are this type, so you are better off visiting an acupuncturist near you to get the proper advice. You may be seeing improvements by changing your diet and trying natural Chinese herbs.

Here are some natural remedies:
・Recommended food: peanuts, walnuts, yams, lamb & mutton, and ginger
・Drink goji berry, jujube tea, and lotus tea
・Pressing “UB23” pressure point in the morning for 3 mins
