Tips for Treating Hot Flashes and Night Sweats

Dear Friend,

Do you sometimes wake up in the middle of the night to warm skin and damp sheets? Night sweats and hot flashes are a common occurrence with cancer patients. They can result from your course of treatment or from the tumor itself. Women tend to be more susceptible, but men can also experience either condition.

Sweat is your body's natural way of regulating temperature. When the moisture evaporates on your skin it creates a cooling effect. Patients being treated for breast cancer or prostate cancer often have hot flashes because treatment can trigger menopause or menopause-like symptoms.

Help is available to control hot flashes and night sweats, allowing you to rest more comfortably. Discuss these options with your physician to determine which one is most appropriate for you.

• In some cases hot flashes may be treated with hormone replacement therapy. Some patients have even had success with certain antidepressants or anti-convulsants.

• Stress and anxiety are contributing factors, so learning coping skills to deal with these emotions can help moderate night sweats and hot flashes. Meditation is a powerful method, and hypnosis is a newer treatment that has shown positive results.

• Wear loose-fitting clothes made from natural fibers and keep your home well-ventilated.

• Manufacturers of herbs and supplements such as Vitamin E and flaxseed make extravagant claims, but studies show that the results are mixed at best. Do not attempt treatment without consulting your healthcare provider first.

At Issels® we utilize a course of immunotherapy that strengthens your own immune system and reduces side effects. Visit our website to see and hear success stories from our patients and learn more about our non-toxic treatment protocols.

Great Ideas for Creating Lasting Family Legacies

Most of us think about leaving our loved ones a legacy. We want the people we love to have something tangible to remember us by when we're gone. Cancer simply truncates the time line, compelling us to face end-of-life thoughts today rather than several decades in the future.

Many cancer patients find comfort and satisfaction in creating a lasting family legacy. Focusing on the people and events that have touched your life also promotes a positive attitude that enhances the healing effects of Issels advanced alternative cancer treatments.
