Points - Ask the Doctor

Q: Is there a natural way to help my hot flashes?

A: Hot flashes, especially those associated with menopause, respond well to acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulations. I suggest that you consult a licensed practitioner to determine the proper course of treatment.

In the meantime try this:

1. Avoid stress, tension, and stimulants including coffee, spicy foods, alcohol, and tobacco.

2. Incorporate more black beans, sesame seeds, soybeans, walnuts, lycii berries, mulberries, yams, licorice, Chinese black dates, lotus seeds, and chrysanthemum flowers.

3. Make tea from chrysanthemum flowers and cassia seeds. Drink this three times daily.

4. Steam a chicken with lycii berries and yam.

5. Roast sesame seeds and then add them to rice porridge for breakfast.
