Hot flushes or severe hot flushes usually affect women who are approaching the menopause and are caused by changes in your hormone levels affecting your body's temperature control. It can happen without warning throughout the day and night.

Sometimes, there can be triggers for hot flashes that make flashes occur more frequently. If you can identify triggers for hot flashes that affect you, then those triggers for hot flashes can be avoided, and your hot flashes will be reduced. This article will explore triggers for hot flashes and discuss what can be done to avoid these triggers in an effort to reduce hot flashes and regain control of a symptom that often seems out of control.

Here are some triggers forsevere hot flashes:

1. Caffeine
2. Alcohol
3. Spicy foods
4. Hot temperatures
5. Stress and anxiety
6. Smoking
7. Obesity


There can be different causes for severe hot flashes and no two women will respond exactly the same. Recognizing and avoiding triggers is one important part to relieving hot flashes. There are also supplements and medications—both prescription and over the counter—that can safely treat hot flashes and greatly improve the quality of life for those who suffer from them.
