How To Beat Hot Flashes: Guest Post By Alex Chavarry

     As many of you know, I have been suffering from hot flashes since I began my menopause journey eight years ago. I'm always on the lookout for products that help minimize the uncomfortable symptoms of a hot flash, and recently, I found a great product that I feel many of you will benefit from. Please welcome Alex Chavarry from Cool Links on the blog today, sharing the details of a neck wrap that is sure to beat the heat when a hot flash strikes.

Cool Links Neck Wrap: A New Way to Beat the Hot Flashes

Popsicles, frozen peas, wet towels, fans full blast; she tried everything. The hot flashes and night sweats were becoming more regular. She just turned 49 years old and didn't want to enter her 50s in discomfort. The reality of menopause was sinking in. Sometimes it was subtle or sometimes it was extreme, but either way she just wanted some relief.
My mom tried everything to beat the heat. When I was a kid, she always did everything to make sure I was taken care of and comfortable. So it was difficult to see her going through this transitional period in her life without that comfort she was so good at providing.
Those years always stuck with me. It would be winter and she would run to the freezer, seemingly sweating, just to find some short term relief. Sure, as a 20 something year old man-child, I would sometimes giggle and tease, but I knew I wanted to do something to help. 
The idea started with ice in a sock, and after many years of tinkering we did it; we created the Cool Links neck wrap.

The Cool Links was designed to be the first adaptable cooling wrap to help people beat the heat. It is created with individual links which help it contour around the body making it light and comfortable. 

It is the first product to have removable cubes so you can keep extra ones in the freezer to swap out thawed ones and extend the cooling time as long as you'd like. 

We made sure to use a wrap made of moisture wicking fabric so you can feel cool without ever getting wet; not to mention stylish and fun to wear.

Mom was the first one to test the Cool Links, and as any mother would, she said she loved it and it was "the best cooling product" she's ever seen. After launching in July of 2017 at outdoor festivals throughout California, we discovered that we can now help more people too. Many women have told us how much they love the relief they get from the Cool Links as well as all of its great features.

Every detail was carefully thought of to keep mom comfortable just like she did for me all those years (and still does). We hope you enjoy it too! Pick one up at:


  1. This sounds interesting if you need to keep cool. Hot flashes were never one of the things I needed to endure during menopause. Before you call me lucky though...I suffered through cold flashes. I'm sure everyone would say they'd rather have cold flashes, but first picture yourself shivering under a fleece blanket in 90 degree heat with 90% humidity while you are soaking wet. (Because it's 90 degrees with 90% humidity and before the cold flash happened, you were sweating in the heat.) It's not a pretty picture. Especially when people keep asking if you are sick. Fun.

    1. Wow! I never thought of what it must be like to have the reverse problem!

  2. Oh, man, I've got to get me one of these! I'm into my 21st years of flashing.
    I'm a cinder . . .

  3. What a great invention! How sweet that you made this for your mom. I'm a hot flash sufferer so I'll def click over to your sales site. Your timing is great too, since summer is around the corner. Mind you, I can get the night sweats all year. Thanks for sharing Alex's product here, Marcia :)

  4. Thanks Diane & Lisa. We just released the product last year and have gotten amazing responses from customers. It really works amazing for those days when it's just too hot. Having extra cubes in the freezer really helps keep you cool all day or when you're out and about. Here's a little discount code for you to get $5 off: HW5OFF

  5. I am lucky that I only had about 4 hot flushes and 2 episodes of night sweats when I went through menopause
