If you have been experiencing frequent headaches, constipation related skin problems, nausea, weight gain and general lack of vitality and a host of other unexplained health issues, you should consider detoxing your body. Detoxing is short for detoxification. As the name suggests, it involves cleansing the body of all the potentially harmful dietary and environmental toxins and revitalizing it.
Detoxing primarily accelerates the elimination of body waste, cleans the colon, enhances blood circulation, purges allergenic or fatty food items from the diet and replenishes the body with nutrients to promote optimal health and functioning of the liver.
A hot flash is a typical feeling of warmth, most commonly felt in the head and neck and gradually spreading to the whole of the body. Hot flashes may last from as brief as 30 seconds to as long as a few minutes. However, it must be noted that a hot flash is only a symptom and not the problem itself. Hot flashes become more pronounced during the phase of menopausal transition in women. They may also be caused as a side effect of various medical conditions and treatments.
Hot flashes are generally followed by redness of the skin and perspiration. Hot flashes can also occur as a result of certain uncommon medical conditions.
Some of the common causes of hot flashes are:
Decline in the levels of estrogen when a woman approaches menopause
Hormonal change due to ageing
Irregular thermoregulation or the body’s ability to adjust and control its temperature
Uncommon medical conditions and reactions to medicines
Here are the key symptoms of Hot Flashes:
Redness of the skin, also known as flushing
Excessive perspiration which can be more pronounced at nights and occur during sleep
The release of serotonin hormone (in cases of the Carcinoid syndrome)
