In brief: Many possibilities
There are many homeopathic remedies that can help with hot flashes.
To find the one most likely to help you, please see an experienced classical (single remedy at a time) homeopath who can explore your case. There are hundreds of possibilities -- and you could get discouraged with trial and error alone. Short article abstract here: http://www.Ncbi.Nlm.Nih.Gov/pubmed/18194760.

Thank you for mentioning these, which can certainly help. However, they are not "homeopathic," as the question specifically asked. Some have confusion about homeopathy vs nutritional supplements, botanical medicines, etc. -- so I was sticking to the question. Best wishes!

Hot flashes: why am I getting them? What can I do about them? Is there a treatment? What causes them? All of those are great questions Hot flashes are one of the most common symptoms of menopause.
Although not limited to menopause. Menopause is when you have gone one year with no menstruation. People also get hot flashes in the Peri-menopause stage and even in the pre-menopause stage. Hot flashes are caused by an imbalance between multiple hormones but especially estrogen and progesterone. The symptoms can occur several times a day. They are often associated with filling hot all over causing one to want to take off some of their clothing. There is a syndrome called estrogen dominance, which can explain this, further. But to simply put it there is an imbalance in the relationship between estrogen and progesterone, which can lead to multiple symptoms, hot flashes being one of them. Other symptoms include things like irritability, anxiousness; night sweats painful intercourse, difficulty sleeping and many more. We've been working with these types of symptoms daily in our practice over the last 18 years. And what we have found is we get great results with natural hormone therapy. We first do a questionnaire then we check their hormones with saliva testing. (More accurate than blood testing because it measures the free hormone with out any concern about the amount of hormone bound to protein.) Once we have that information we identified what the hormone imbalance is and we simply replace what's deficient. This brings a balance between several hormones and in turn causes a relinquishing of many of the symptoms associated with menopause. Thanks for your question. The above is the simple answer the better answer is to work with a healthcare professional who has experiencing natural hormone therapy. Will be happy to further discuss your issues with you in the concierge service. Go to: https://www.healthtap.com/dr-stevenfergusonmd
