What types of complementary or alternative treatments have you tried to relieve hot flashes?

I am on Female Balance from Awareness Life and take 2 tablets twice/day. It works very well for me. I had at least 30 hot flashes a day and they are all gone.

In cooler weather when you need warmer clothing, I wear a short-sleeved or sleeveless shirt under my clothing so that I can shed the long sleeves when having a hot flash. It provides speedy relief when you strip down to that t-shirt.
