Flaxseed shows potential to reduce hot flashes

Data from a new Mayo Clinic (http://mayoclinic.edu) study suggest that dietary therapy using flaxseed can decrease hot flashes in postmenopausal women who do not take estrogen. The findings from the pilot study are published in the summer 2007 issue of the Journal of the Society for Integrative Oncology. A hot flash is often described as a flush of intense warmth across much of the body that may be accompanied by sweating, reddening of the skin, or, occasionally, cold shivers. Hot flashes occur in varying frequency and duration, even during sleep, and often cause or accompany sleep deprivation, anxiety and irritability. “Hot flashes are a bothersome issue for women experiencing menopause,” says Sandhya Pruthi, M.D., (http://mayoresearch.mayo.edu/mayo/research/staff/pruthi_s.cfm) Mayo Clinic breast health (http://cancercenter.mayo.edu/) specialist and the study’s primary investigator. “We hope to find more effective nonhormonal options to assist women, and flaxseed looks promising.”
