What can I give my wife to help her she hasn't been able to hold anythig down for 1 1/2 days now she getting hot/cold flashes and can't even hold down water

Hello.: Hello. I suggest getting a thermometer. If her temp is 104 or above, recommend she get medical care. If her resting pulse is elevated or she feels dizzy or lightheaded upon standing, these are signs that she may be dehydrated and may need intravenous hydration. Most of the things I would recommend require being able to swallow and to hold something down. However, medical acupuncture can aid this type of emesis greatly. ...Read more

What can I do or take to ease the hot/cold flashes and night sweats?

What can I do or take to ease the hot/cold flashes and night sweats?

Hormone balancing: Night sweats: there are many potential causes to sweating at night. The term night sweats generally refers to excessive sweating at night related to a hormone imbalance.

There is no one answer to explain the origin of sweating at night. Some common causes are: infection, some cancers, several medications, low blood sugars and a host of other less common reasons.

Were going to focus in on the hormone imbalance commonly seen in menopause, although by no means limited to menopause. We have seen a common night sweats picture in the men with prostate cancer with elevated estrogen levels. Swelling often starts around your neck

We generally start with saliva testing which allows us to identify what the hormone imbalance actually is and treat accordingly. When we don't start with saliva testing we very often get very good success with progesterone cream in the form of wild yam cream. There are many different preparations of wild yam cream on the market and often the preparation does not have enough progesterone cream to be effective.

The above is the simple answer the better answer is to work with a healthcare professional who has experiencing natural hormone therapy.
