Calming the fire of a "hot flash"

Okay . . . so yesterday we discovered that "hot flashes" are not what we thought they were!

And we now know . . . that correcting the ratio of the amino acids called "arginine" and "lysine" can help in the battle of feeling like you're on "FIRE"!

So how do we fix this problem???

Well . . . first . . . we must avoid trigger foods such as alcohol, caffeine, fatty meats, spicy foods and processed foods.

These are all "trigger" foods . . . that are high in "arginine" and facilitate "hot flashes"

Now . . . we should add to our diet "cool" foods such as apples, bananas, spinach, broccoli, eggs and green tea. Which are all high in "lysine'

Even adding raw apple cider vinegar with "mother" will help regulate toxins in the body which can reduce the intensity of "hot flashes" and "night sweats".

And if you're looking for a spice that helps . . . "turmeric" can manage and reduce "hot flashes" and joint pain.

Okay . . . so let's better understand . . .

As we know . . . we definitely need "arginine" in the body for optimal health . . . but we need the right amount . . . not too much

So where does the amino acid called "lysine" come into play???

Well . . . as we have discovered from previous Health tips . . . "lysine" counteracts too much "arginine" in the body.
