A slightly chilly room instead of a frigid one may be all you need to keep your body cool and lessen the occurrences of hot flashes.
It is also important not to be overweight. The prime site of estrogen production during the postmenopausal stage is in body fat. Also, being overweight can open the risks for acquiring breast and uterine cancer.
By not smoking, you may reduce hot flashes as well as your risk of many serious health conditions, such as heart disease, stroke and cancer.
