    I had excellent results with parsley. A teaspoon or two per serving in everything I ate, three times a day consistently, really cut the hot flashes down.

    I get cold flashes when I've eaten something to which I'm allergic. SO cold, bone deep cold and no amount of heat or clothes will fix it until the allergic reaction passes off.
