For hot flashes and menopausal symptoms, it has been shown that choosing foods rich in phytoestrogens may help. These include legumes (particularly organic soybeans - tofu), flaxseed, other beans (lima, split peas), and alfalfa sprouts. Also, the herbs black cohosh, chasteberry, ginseng and red clover have also been reported as effective in menopause, but you should have the advice of an herbalist or naturopathic doctor before you add this to your diet. Add a few of the phytoestrogen-rich foods in with some leafy greens, banana, avocado, berries, grapes, nuts and seeds (sunflower and pumpkin)!
