I am going through menopause and have been having INTENSE hot flashes and night sweats. I decided not to take HRT and wanted to treat it naturally. I realized that GLUTEN and SUGAR were triggering this reaction. I have now been gluten free for two months and have cut back on sugar and it has helped TREMENDOUSLY!! I never thought I could cut out gluten but it's not difficult to do. I actually have more energy, my skin looks great and if I do have a hot flash it's quick and not as hot...not to mention I've lost a few pounds!;) I make sure that I don't eat anything 3 hours before I got to bed, that has really aliviated my night sweats! I guess my hormone changes has made me gluten and sugar intolerant...who knew??
