Dr Oz did a segment on Night Sweats and Hot Flashes, because all women want to know how to get comfortable at night and how to avoid feeling clammy. What causes Night Sweats? What are the latest Hot Flash Products? This is a must-read for any peri-menopausal or menopausal women (and their husbands!).
Dr Oz: What Causes Night Sweats
Dr Oz said that your brain is the organ that is responsible for Night Sweats. The Hypothalamus portion of your brain is charged with regulating your temperature by sending messages to your Pituitary Gland. However, the Hypothalamus is dependent on Estrogen and so, if your estrogen levels are fluctuating, your brain does not know if you are too hot or too cold. If the Hypothalamus does not “tell” the Pituitary Gland that you are too hot or too cold, the body does not adjust in the way that it should.
