Can Menopause Cause Cold Flashes?

DONT PAUSEThe average age of menopause in American women is 51, but most women will experience menopause symptoms for at least a few years before their final periods. Hot flashes may be the most widely recognized symptom, but cold flashes are not uncommon. Cold flashes are similar to hot flashes in that they have the same underlying cause: changing hormones.

A cold flash is defined as a feeling of intense cold or chills, which may be accompanied by shivering. It occurs without any change in ambient temperature and may seem to have no relation to any other external factors. Scientists believe that cold flashes occur when the hypothalamus, which acts as the body’s thermostat, malfunctions as a result of hormone changes. Your brain responds by increasing the temperature set point, and your body then reacts by shivering to increase its temperature to match the set point. You may experience cold flashes alone or in conjunction with hot flashes and night sweats.

If you are suffering from cold flashes, you may try dressing in layers that can be easily put on or taken off as needed. A balanced diet and regular exercise keep your body operating at its best. Natural supplements such as DON’T PAUSE can be extremely effective for managing cold flashes. DON’T PAUSE uses a blend of herbs and other natural ingredients to keep hormone levels more stable. You can take one or two capsules a day according to your needs. Contact us today to learn more or to place your DON’T PAUSE.
