Regular Exercise Reduces Hot Flashes


To avoid the dreaded hot flash, get moving. Researchers studied 92 menopausal women for 15 days and found that those who exercised regularly had fewer hot flashes for the 24 hours after a workout. But women who weren't fit had more hot flashes when they did exercise. The study didn't determine whether getting fit would help these women have fewer hot flashes.
