Q. I am having hot flashes or sweats will this help or should I start taking medication? Thanks
A. There are not many cures for symptoms related to menopause, however, recent research has shown that the Mediterranean diet may help bring some relief from hot flashes and night sweats. Exercise, avoiding high-fat, high-sugar foods and eating lots of fruits and vegetables may get you through this warm time. For recipes rich in fruits and veggies check out our great selection.
