I believe that I have found an effective remedy that does not carry with it the health risks associated with HRT. There has been a medical study that has shown that eating soy nuts significantly reduces hot flashes.
I can understand it if some menopausal women react to this with an….UGH….I dont like soy nuts.
At the same time, I know that there are menopausal women who are desperate to find an effective remedy for this menopause symptom that is safe. Many women tell me that their hot flushes has a negative impact on the quality of their lives.
Eating Soy Nuts Significantly Reduces Hot Flashes
A study into the association of soy nuts in a woman’s diet and the effect it had on her tendency to experience a hot flash, was conducted on behalf of the National Institute of Health. Here are some excerpts from the study, as reported in the Journal Of the US Library of Medicine
The prevalence of hot flashes is much lower in Asian than in Western countries; 10%–25% of Chinese women and 10%–20% of Indonesian women have hot flashes compared with 58%–93% of western women.
These findings are thought, at least in part, to be related to consumption of a soy phytoestrogen-rich diet. The average daily soybean intake is 17–36 g in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Indonesia compared with 4 g in the United States.
The report in the journal outlines how the study was conducted
The current study examined the effect of a native form of soy, soy nuts (which are roasted soybeans), added to the therapeutic lifestyle changes (TLC) diet (currently recommended by the Adult Treatment Panel of the National Cholesterol Education Program to lower risk of CHD) on hot flashes and menopausal symptoms in a randomized, crossover trial of 60 postmenopausal women over an 8-week period.
Our objectives were to determine if dietary soy decreased hot flashes and improved menopausal symptoms.
The researchers concluded
In conclusion, soy nut ingestion was associated with a significant decrease in hot flashes and menopausal symptoms in postmenopausal women.
So there you have it ladies. If the hot flushes are having a negative effect on the quality of your life, there is something that you can do about it that is effective.
The study has shown that eating soy nuts significantly reduces hot flashes and it will also improve other menopause symptoms.
Please do not expect to see an improvement in your symptoms, if you do not improve your routine diet, while eating some soy nuts 3 or 4 times a day.
If you combine your consumption of soy nuts with regular fast food meals, you will not see an improvement.
It has also been established, in other studies, that regular exercise reduces the hot flashing.
So follow a good diet, inclusive of eating soy nuts, and exercise daily to reduce the severity and frequency of your menopause symptoms.
