Health Quickie: Hot Flash Relief

Tranquil forestHere’s a quick, natural technique you can try when a hot flash shows up: Deep breathing.

The trick here is to take longer to exhale than to inhale. Start by taking as deep a breath as you can – you want to fill your belly with air, the way opera singers do. Then very slowly release the air, taking about twice as long as you did to breath in. Repeat this a couple of times and see if it works for you.
