I've always been very health conscious. I exercise daily and eat well, but man oh man, those hot flashes were killing me. Not really wanting to take HRT, yet, I thought I'd add some soy to my diet and see what happened. I know that the jury is out on soy's health benefits, I'm just sharing my experience with eating tofu.
Y'all it works. It took a week or two of eating soy every day; tofu one week, edemame the next, to notice any change. Slowly the hot flashes became less severe and came less often. I still have the occasional hot flash, mostly at night, but they are nowhere as severe as before.
Obviously this may not work for you, but give it a try. Let me know how you're doing. We don't have to go through this alone, right?
Oh yea, I promised you a recipe....

Put corn meal and whatever spices you like into a bowl. For this pic I just used salt and pepper. May I recommend garlic, old bay seasoning, fresh or dried herbs, in whatever combo sounds good.
