Based on the research we’ve highlighted today, there are a few simple strategies women can adopt in order to help control the frequency and intensity of hot flushes. They’re all achievable and are evidence-based in their effectiveness.
Follow these strategies and you’ll be able to manage your hot flushes more effectively…
Regular exercise has been shown to help us manage and control our temperature. Research shows that a high level of aerobic fitness (stamina) helps us to control our temperature, so a regular exercise habit will be effective in thermoregulation .
A weekly 3-5 exercise sessions per week should be sufficient to help keep temperature under a good level of control.
Body fat levels
We know with certainty that obesity will impact the frequency and severity of hot flushes. Beyond that though, it also ensures we maintain a higher temperature for longer. Fat has insulating properties, making it more difficult for the body to cool down post exercise .
Reaching or maintaining a healthy level of body fat will help with maintaining a manageable temperature.
Smoking affects circulation, which then in turn reduces our ability to cool ourselves. By stopping smoking we promote circulation, which helps us to cool ourselves more effectively.
