Menopausal night sweats are one of the most infamous symptoms of Menopause. They wake you up in the middle of the night, leaving you cold, drenched, and unable to fall back asleep.
Like hot flashes, menopausal night sweats are a result of the drop in estrogen levels that your body experiences during Menopause. This drop confuses the hypothalamus – the body's "thermostat." The hypothalamus somehow reads your body as "too hot," triggering intense perspiration in an effort to cool off this imaginary heat.
If you've been waking up in a cold sweat, there are several lifestyle changes you can make to help you manage and minimize menopausal night sweats naturally.
Keep your room cool – Lower the heat while sleeping and put a fan on to keep the air cool and circulating.
Identify patterns – Notice patterns that may identify what could be contributing to your night sweats. Spicy foods, alcohol and cigarettes are common triggers.
Exercise – Exercise is a natural stress reliever and can help you sleep better.
