(NaturalNews) For women who have had, or are currently having hot flashes, they know that the flushing sensations and sweating can be overwhelming. Seven out of ten menopausal women have these symptoms which can often last for several years. These bothersome changes can interrupt the ability to concentrate, relax and enjoy life. All of this can create a kind of domino effect that can lead to everything from lethargy to depression.

During this time, it's important to eat foods that can ease symptoms so women can function optimally.

Reduce hot flashes with these foods and herbal remedies

Broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower are vegetables that can boost magnesium and potassium levels, which when too low, have been associated with major depression. In fact, make sure to eat a variety of cruciferous vegetables and leafy greens to include a variety of enjoyable foods.

All of the changes taking place in the body create both mental and physical stress. Therefore, eat a fair share of shiitake mushrooms and nuts. Their high selenium content has been linked with lowering stress levels.

According to The North American Menopause Society (NAMS), there are some definite foods to avoid. According to their "meno-menu," stay far away from spicy foods, alcohol and caffeine so as to not aggravate hot flashes.

Black Cohosh, an herb thought to help heal a variety of conditions including depression, is also something women may want to consider. The NAMS website provides information about it, saying that it ". . . has a good safety record over the years" and may be effective in hot flash reduction.

Additionally, certain herbal teas like chamomile, have been used by women for their calming effects.

Women should also consider adding ground flaxseeds or flaxseed oil to their foods. A small, six-week study conducted by the Mayo Clinic showed that women who ingested 40 grams (almost 10 teaspoons) of ground flaxseed daily noticed that their " . . . hot flash frequency decreased by 50 percent and severity by 57 percent."

Incorporating these healthy foods is advisable for a well-rounded diet, but they're especially welcome choices for women suffering from hot flashes.
