Night Sweats & Menopause Night Sweats... Let MenopauseRx Explain...

Scientists have discovered that sleep is far more critical to health than previously believed and have linked sleep deprivation to serious health problems such as diabetes, obesity, depression, hypertension, and heart disease.

Your emotional well being, performance, productivity, and mental abilities are all linked with getting a good night sleep.


If you suffer from a sleep deprivation due to night sweats, getting treatment is important to maintaining good health.

Hot flashes that occur during the night can disrupt sleep and are typically classified as Night Sweats, since it is the sweating that usually awakens a woman from sleep. The amount of sweating varies from woman to woman. Occasionally, some women report that their bed sheets become dampened or even soaked with sweat during a night sweat. Since the normal sleep pattern is interrupted during a night sweat, altered sleep is usually present. This altered sleep can result in fatigue, mood changes, and irritability.

There are a number of options to help treat sleep disturbances. You should schedule a visit to your doctor and establish a routine to promote good sleep habits such as:

  • Set a standard bedtime and time to wake up: Adhere to this regimen even on weekends.

  • Reserve the bedroom for sleeping: Your body and brain will learn to associate it with sleep. Go to another room to watch TV or to read.

  • Block out background noise in your bedroom throughout the night.

  • Exercise during the day: Avoid strenuous exercise within 2 hours of bedtime.

  • Keep your bedroom dark, cool, and quiet.

  • Try to avoid napping, especially in the evening.

  • Avoid caffeine after 5 pm.

  • Reschedule medication: If you take medication that may be stimulating, such as antihistamines, decongestants, or asthma medications, take them as long before bedtime as possible.

  • Use imagery to help you relax and drift to sleep in a peaceful environment.

  • Try Valerian Root: Valerian Root is an herb that has been proven to promote a natural sleep pattern. This well tolerated herb has been used for many years and is not habit forming and not associated with the 'hang-over' effect that occur with many prescription products.

  • Wear lighter cloths: When a night sweat occurs, many women find that cooling can be achieved with wicking sleepwear which is made from micro-fiber yarn with advanced evaporation and thermo-regulation properties. The fabric pulls the moisture away from the body to the outside of the fabric, then dries rapidly to help regulate the body's temperature as you sleep. You may learn more by visiting

  • Use a natural cooling towel to aid with a better nights sleep: Chill Cooling Towels are a non-hormonal cooling towel that provides instant relief for hot flashes and night sweats. Chill Cooling Towels are 20 to 30 degrees cooler than your body temperature right out of the package. They provide instant relief on contact anytime, anywhere. You may learn more by visiting
