70-85% of women in perimenopause and menopause experience menopause night sweats and menopause hot flashes.
Those night sweats make it hard for us to think, work, and function during the day. Here are some ways to naturally cool things down.
Natural Relief: Lifestyle
Try these lifestyle changes before you consider using medications to treat your night sweat issues.
If this temperature feel like Antarctica to your partner, give him and electric blanket, and hopefully, you can both sleep peacefully!
Using fans and air conditioners in your bedroom can also help you.
Consider wearing pajamas made of fabrics that will wick away moisture. There are actually pajamas made specifically to help keep you dry and cool in the night!

Also, consider starting your day with a quiet mediation. Just 5 minutes of centering yourself can make a huge difference for your coming day.
Natural Relief: Herbs and Supplements
Many plants and herbs have estrogen like qualities that can help to effectively treat your menopause night sweats.
German scientists have been studying the effects of black cohosh for 50 years, and they have found it to be a safe and effective way of treating hot flashes and night sweats. Take 20 mg twice a day.

What's Going On?
You wake up in the middle of the night to intense heat.
Then you realize that you are sweating so much that you have soaked not only your nightgown, but also your sheets!
Now you have to drag your sleepy body out of bed and change your clothes before you can try to get back to sleep.
It's no wonder menopausal women can be a bit irritable - we're not sleeping very well!
Scientists are still unclear as to the exact cause of menopause night sweats, but they certainly seem to be caused by our fluctuating hormone levels (specifically, low estrogen and progesterone).
