Treat hot flushes with Complementary Therapies


Dr. Emad Tukmachi MBChB recently published a research paper to treating hot flushes in breast cancer sufferers with complementary therapies such as reflexology and body massage which work alongside Western remedies.  


He covered a number of things that can aid treatment and symptoms of hot flushes in breast cancer sufferers, because amongst other symptoms, these flushes can often be more severe in women who have been treated for breast cancer compared with healthy women, they have hot flushes twice as often and for longer periods of time.


Dr Tukmachi also listed a number of factors that precipitate hot flushes, including hot foods, lack of fitness/ exercise and an unhealthy diet.


As far as assisting Western medicine, Dr Tukmachi recommended a number of options which had one of two common threads:

 Re-introducing homeostasis to the body (re-balancing).  The regulation of body temperature is geared to delicately balanced homeostatic mechanisms, mediated either through the nervous system or by chemical transmitters.  Generally, homeostasis is maintained by the balanced activity of the autonomic nervous system and also by the endocrine system.   Reflexology is well known for re-establishing homeostasis in the body.

 Relaxing the patient so their body has every chance of fixing itself.  Therefore, patients have several choices of methods used in relaxation.  Dr Tukmachi listed, Acupressure, the Alexander technique, Body Massage, Reflexology, Shiatsu and Yoga.
