What is your VMS?

If you're wondering what VMS means, it stands for Vasomotor Symptoms, aka "Hot Flashes." I saw an ad for VMS while watching an award show earlier this year. Anywho, I visited their website as instructed and took their 6-question Quiz to find out whether my hot flashes were Mild-Moderate or Severe! Right now, I am somewhere between Moderate and Severe and always looking for ways to get these flashes under control. Many things can trigger a hot flash, such as your ethnicity, hormones, weight, anxiety, STRESS, smoking, food/caffeine, and physical activity.

As you can see from the image with this post, courtesy of Everyday Health, menopause takes a toll on your body. Just last night, I couldn't get to sleep, so I made my usual cup of Chamomile tea, which by the way, does help me. During the day, I drink plenty of water, trying to stay hydrated, and what can I do for mood swings and insomnia? Let's not talk about vaginal dryness and weight gain. Something has got to give, and I mean fast!

The VMS site offers visitors 'The Hot Take' newsletter, which provides members with tips and information on managing hot flashes and so much more.
