Nature Knows Best: Natural Hormone-Free Hot Flash Remedies

 If you are still in the throes of menopause, chances are that you're experiencing hot flashes. There is nothing worse than carefully applying your makeup in the morning only to end up with eyeliner running down your cheeks from a flash of heat raging through your body. 

Luckily, there are many alternatives out there for combating these uncomfortable menopause symptoms. One such company is Kindra, and I am pleased to share their advice on natural hormone-free remedies for hot flashes.

         Nature Knows Best: Natural Hormone-Free Hot Flash Remedies

Hot flashes can be a challenging aspect of menopause, one that is often discussed in women's health chats when the concept of the midlife evolution arises. It’s no wonder we are all dreaming of a world where hot flashes are merely a mild side effect of this journey, rather than a focal point. 

A part of expertly managing hot flashes is ensuring there is enough support and options for those who experience them. Many menopausal support options involve products with hormones or hormone replacement therapy (HRT). However, hormones aren’t an option for everyone and many like to opt for as natural remedies as possible.

What Causes Hot Flashes?

Hot flashes (or hot flushes, depending on where you're located in the world) can begin in perimenopause, also known as the early stage of menopause, and continue into post-menopause. When your body enters its midlife years, your estrogen levels begin to decrease. This decrease of estrogen levels triggers the body's internal thermostat (the hypothalamus) to become much more sensitive to slight changes in body temperature. This means if your body's temperature drops one degree, the hypothalamus will go into overdrive to regulate your body's temperature. But due to this hypersensitivity, it can overheat your body, thus signaling a hot flash to occur.  

Non-Hormonal Treatments and Natural Remedies for Hot Flashes

The Kindra Core Supplement is the perfect answer to hot flashes. It’s specially developed to treat the 7 most common signs of menopause, including hot flashes, mood swings, fatigue, night sweats, brain fog, disrupted sleeping, and stress. It has two plant-powered ingredients that make the formula unmatched: Pycnogenol® and Ashwagandha.


Pycnogenol® is a pine bark extract native to the coast of France. It is lauded for its antioxidant value that exceeds Vitamin C by a long shot. It is particularly amazing for managing hot flashes due to its ability to promote healthy blood circulation. It also supports the heart, amplifies immunity, and even makes skin smooth and supple. Pretty amazing, right?

Ashwagandha is the second ingredient in the Core Supplement that sets the formula apart. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, which means it helps your body adapt to its highs and lows, returning you to a calm and balanced state. Used for over 3,000 years in Ayurvedic medicine, it is known to reduce stress and boost brain functioning. These two herbs come together in our FDA-approved formula to create an incredible answer to common menopause symptoms. 

Another natural remedy that you can easily add to your food is flaxseeds. Plus, flaxseeds also curb vaginal dryness - try adding a handful to your oatmeal.

Soy plant isoflavones have shown efficacy in minimizing the occurrence of hot flashes, though some are sensitive to soy, thus nixing this as an option for relief. If you're interested in this course of action, try out red clover to see if it helps you. The aforementioned antidepressant Paroxetine is an FDA-approved non-hormonal treatment for hot flashes. 

Evening primrose oil is another herbal product that provides support in dealing with hot flashes. 

Lifestyle Changes to Make Menopause Easier

When thinking about natural remedies for hot flashes, lifestyle changes can be equally useful in decreasing the severity of hot flashes. First off, you'll want to curb your intake of spicy foods alcohol and caffeine - these can be major hot flash triggers. 

Be sure to wear breathable fabrics. Cotton, linen, and silk are all natural materials that are light on the skin, thus keeping you cool and comfortable during a hot flash. COVID-19 has mandated the use of masks for all as we work to protect one another - be sure your mask is also in a comfortable, natural material. 

Night sweats can be a major stressor. Kindra also has a Sleep Enhancing Supplement that targets menopause-induced sleep disturbances, including night sweats. In addition to this supplement, try keeping a damp washcloth with a few drops of eucalyptus oil in it by your bedside. You can lay the washcloth on your forehead and neck to help cool your body down if you're awakened by an intense hot flash.

Tend to your other menopausal symptoms to ensure you can stay as comfortable as possible should a hot flash come on. Kindra makes a Daily Vaginal Lotion that tackles vaginal dryness, ensuring that discomfort down there is one less thing for you to stress about during your daily routine. 

A balanced diet and exercise regimen is another key in managing hot flashes. Weight loss in those who are carrying extra weight has been shown to decrease the frequency of hot flashes. Plus, developing a strong relationship to a healthy lifestyle is always a plus during the midlife evolution as it will serve as a protective factor against diabetes and heart disease.

  1. I absolutely HATED Hot Flashed during menopause and am so glad that phase of my life it over - thanks for sharing this information.

  2. These are tough times to be a woman. Hope these remedies provide the relief you desire.

  3. I was blessed in that I either didn't have them, or they were so slight that they didn't cause a problem. I do eat a lot of soy maybe that lessened their scorching. Many of my friends, though, suffered with them...dressing in layers and constantly slipping sweaters on and off.

  4. I had two hot flashes and once I hadnights sweats, lucky me, for those not so luck this is good advice
