Cool Down Hot Flashes With Ayurveda

During Menopause, the pitta dosha gets unbalanced causing women to experience hot flashes. Relieve hot flashes with Ayurvedic tips like rose milk, ideal times to eat, etc


Hot flashes, caused by a pitta unbalance, are uncomfortable and irritating. To control them, try these Ayurvedic tips.

Hot flashes are a sudden feeling of feverish heat, typically as a symptom of the menopause. It can leave you feeling uncomfortable and exhausted especially if they happen regularly. Unfortunately, it is an unavoidable part of menopause when women transition from the pitta to the vata phase of their life. This transition causes the pitta to become unbalanced and the aggravation in the fiery dosha leads to hot flashes. Here are some Ayurvedic tips that you can use to get relief from hot flashes.

  • The day is divided on the basis of what dosha is at its peak during those hours. The pitta hours of the day stretch from 10 pm to 2 am and it is then that hot flashes are the most frequent. To control them, unwind during the evening with meditation and cooling drinks like herbal teas and a rose milk made by adding rose water to milk.

  • Do not take more stress than you absolutely have to. Avoid overworking yourself and reduce the pressure on yourself by prioritizing task by what’s immediate and what can task can backseat.

  • Eat your largest meal of the day around noon because it is at this time that your agni (digestive fire) is at its strongest. This way there will be no food left undigested that could cause your system to overheat.

  • To pacify the pitta, eat plenty of sweet and juicy fruits, and favour the bitter and astringent tastes. Also, include spices like dhaniya (coriander), saunf (fennel), pudina (mint) and motee saunf (anise) in your diet.
