As a TCM herbalist for many years, I can tell you that Chinese Herbs can really help with Hot Flashes. Even stopping them altogether in many cases! This is because the Chinese Medicine system treats the cause of the Hot flashes. This is usually dryness and a deep dehydration that comes with age. TCM does not focus on hormones, or try to replace them!

Don't worry you don't have to know a thing about Chinese Herbs. Here are some effective formulas! All formula ingredients are well known and researched TCM herbs that are %100 safe, even for a child.

You can just print the formulas and take them to a Chinese Herb store. They are actually prescriptions! Some Chinese Herbal Pharmacies will make up capsules for you. Many will make up powders of all of the ingredients together. Just take a teaspoon mixed with some warm water 2-3 times a day.

Also, very effective is to gently boil the "raw" herbs for 20 minutes and simply drink the strong "Decoction" several times a day. This is the traditional way, but I haven't seen many people willing to put up with the hassle, bad smell or taste, for too long. So, powders are fine, and easy to take.

Here's Two Great formulas:

The first is for Hot Flashes that are really bad, as well as dehydration. All ingredients are well known and researched TCM herbs that are %100 safe, even for a child.
