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
