EXERCISE MAY REDUCE HOT FLASHES

Posted: 03.29.2017
Two of the most common symptoms of menopause are night sweats and hot flashes. A new study suggests that exercise may help manage these symptoms. Researchers reported that post-menopausal women in the 20-week exercise program experienced improvement in fitness levels and their physical and mental well-being. They also reported some weight loss and a reduction in symptoms. The exercise regimen included three one-hour workout sessions per week, with aerobic exercise and strength training. The women in the test group also received psychological counseling. Benefits were still present after one year.
