Dr. Berg talks about hot flashes and what causes them. The hypothalamus runs the glands in the body, and then the pituitary to then send messages to the ovaries. This happens on a timing system. Each month, release the egg from the ovary. There is a feedback mechanism that is circular.  So if one part turns off (ovary), the back up organ kicks in because they make the same hormones. If the adrenal gland do not back up the ovaries, you will get a flash of heat.

What Causes Hot Flashes or Hot Flushes?



Black tibby07 - 2018-02-26
what if your a male and you get hot flashes?

Sahar - - 2018-02-13
I'm 37, I stopped getting on my periods naturally. (I have to use pills/injections to get on my period.) I had a test for menopause and they told me I'm not going through perimenopause. My ovarian is too small, and I have to be skinny to get on my periods. Which I'm usually not. Can it be the cause I get hot flashes all the time?

stacey del bucchia - 2018-02-13
Thank you❤

Fat Nigga - 2018-02-10
But I’m only 12 and I get them

Ashley v. Oort - 2018-02-08
I am in my 60s I still get hot flashes. They are just as bad as when I was in my 50s. Why. Help.

fourcakers - 2018-01-28
What if you are 65 and having hot flashes?

Jacqueline McIntosh - 2018-01-22
Wow, I just realized that I haven't had a hot flash in about two months. I've been eating Keto for seven months now. Yae!!!!

Lindy Ford Nutrition & Wellness - 2018-01-04
Thanks, Dr. Berg. I don't think any woman needs to suffer with hot flashes. I'm 56 and have never had one. Natural modalities and nutrition work so well.

Jacinthe Grenier - 2017-12-29
I don’t see the link to what I can do to support adrenals and reduce the hot flashes. Can someone please repost?

Diana Casares - 2017-11-17
Thank you Dr.E Berg. I share your intellectual info to others! You are AMAZING,.

tracey walker - 2017-09-03
Hi Dr Berg, do you know what would cause this on the keto diet? I am admin in a Facebook group and I along with quite a few members get hot flashes. Any ideas?

Verena - 2017-06-21
I have hot flashes, I didn't well sleep but I'm 23. :/

L.A Xavier - 2017-06-04
That diagram reminds me of something else.

Glenna Wood - 2017-05-27
This is for my friends experiencing hot flashes. Very informative.

Jeanette Louise - 2017-05-13
You're literally my favorite channel!!! I can easily plug into your videos while on the stationary bike and next thing I know my cardio is done. Thank you for all your information!!

Perceptionist - 2017-04-28
Night #4 without any more than 3 hours total in 5 days and 4 nights and gotta go to Dr via driving by 11am... SIGH. I am crabby, eyes are so blurry I can not see. Body hurts, hot flashes/feverish flushing close to 5 times an hour...! WHY WONT MY BODY SHUT DOWN?!! If I get rid of all electronics and remove the distractions of them, I get anxiety over every noise I hear, the mice the cat may bring to bed like the other night, oversleeping, life, purpose, medicals, medicals, family, medicals.... etc. I have meds for anxiety but I will not take more than prescribed. When they do finally kick in it is hours and hours later about when the sun is coming up and my body shuts down and reboots off 3 of less hours of sleep. I am losing sanity over this and my body is dissolving!
Your video is great. I have been in surgical menopause (unmanaged) for 3 years, it has been a mess. Also had 2 pituitary tumors in 04 and 09. Do you know if any of that is playing into any of this? My PCP and GYN have proven useless.

Will it be safe to take Your Estrogen Balance if you have had a Hysterectomy?

midnightchannel - 2017-04-16
(Really...? You're using football analogies to explain hot flashes?)

Monica Carrillo - 2017-04-16
Thank you Dr Berg. Thank you for the information you share with us.

Kris kspecial - 2017-04-16
I'm curious because you mentioned age 52. I'm 45 and have been having hot flashes for about a year now. How can I be going through this so early?

NeverMind - 2017-04-16

Madijo70 - 2017-04-16

Magda Dejesus - 2017-04-16
In the past I was told I had a benign tumor in the adrenal glands, I'm 40 and started having hot flashes could that be the cause?

Julia Monroe - 2017-04-15
Dr Berg, any concern taking this on Keto?

Rosa Garcia - 2017-04-15
I am 45! Already getting them !

Jack K - 2017-04-15
I started getting these at 20

Sam RS - 2017-04-15
What about hyperhydrosis? You should do a video on that.

Secret Journey - 2017-04-15
Look up Clary Sage Essential Oil for under the feet and on the ovaries to stop hot flashes. It contains estrogen.

Mali-Hélène Berl - Joanis - 2017-04-15
So what could it be in my case? I´m just 34. And I get hot flashes all the time. Sometimes during the night and a lot during the day. especially when it´s pretty cold outside. it´s so annoying cause it doesn´t stop, and when it does i start to freezing like hell. What is wrong with me?

Pamela Pratt - 2017-04-15
I wore sleeveless clothes, and bared my shoulders as soon as one began. They stopped immediately, and I never suffered from them with this technique.

Regina Roberts - 2017-04-15
Wow. Your amazing Dr. Berg. I love your explanation of things. It all makes sense!

Macabresque - 2017-04-15
I'm young (21 years old) and I often get hot flushes. It bothers me because some people around me jokes about it as if it's very weird for me to have it since menopause won't reach me for some time. Is it really odd to have this symptom if you're a young woman? Does it mean there's something wrong with my ovaries or adrenals?

PS: Thanks for your videos, dr Berg. I like them a lot! Greetings from Poland ;)

Marlene Coffman - 2017-04-15
Great video Dr. Berg! What do you think about progesterone cream for post menopausal women?

Brett Arsenault - 2017-04-15
what about hot flashes in men?

Briar Rose - 2017-04-15
Did you get a new camera? Very nice looking video. Better lighting and sound too! 👍

budgetluxuries - 2017-04-15
I just keep telling myself it's the physical sensation of glorious lipolysis.... 😉

Georgia Scott - 2017-04-15
This so interesting. I have terrible heart palpitations and some hot flushes. This would seem to explain both issues. Dr Berg, what would you recommend for helping with menopausal heart palpitations? Thank you for this series of videos.

migg seeds - 2017-04-15

Veronica Hix - 2017-04-15

Kitty Jhonson - 2017-04-15
Please talk about Copper Toxicity. Thanks!

tondafied - 2017-04-15
I don't have flashes. I'm constantly in one!!!😡🔥🔥

Ann Weinerth - 2017-04-15
I'm the adrenal gland and I'm over worked and underpaid.

Sharon McIntosh - 2017-04-15
I use a product called Estrovera which is rhubarb root. I took it once a day for a month and the hot flashes stopped. It was in the vitamin section of the drug store.

Daniel Daniels - 2017-04-15
Never heard it referred to as Hot Flashes, must be an American thing

2011ariesrules - 2017-04-15
My hormones hijacked my intelligence! They are so complex!

yourbestdriver75 - 2017-04-15
What about hot flashes in men? Since most men don't have ovaries.

Annie - 2017-04-15
I blossomed very late in my teens, so experienced menopause very late as well.
I took some recommended 'natural formula' designed for such (can't recall the name) & it worked like a charm. I quit that about 6mths to a year later, and had no further hot flushes. :) AWESOME! Yet I know some women who have suffered for many years ... whilst relying on absurd HRT meds. :(
