    According to the University of Michigan Health Center, chocolate can trigger hot flashes because it contains chemical stimulants that may raise the body’s internal thermostat.

    This is a depressing fact, when suffering from hot flashes the first thing many reach for is chocolate, only making the experience worse.

    For many women small lifestyle changes and non-hormonal remedies can manage hot flashes, for others who are a good candidate a low dose of HT works.

    No woman should have to live without chocolate or with hot flashes 🙂

    Thank you for this excellent question.
