Women and Menopause: Hot Flashes Be Gone!

Hot sleep? Sweaty sleep? Waking up in the middle of the night soaked and freezing?

Ahhh, if you're like so many women going through the same agony, it must be the change-of-life symptoms that can be incredibly challenging.

Luckily, countless women are experiencing menopausal relief using ChiliSleep bed cooling systems and products. Could you, or someone you know, be next?

Any woman who deals with menopause is painfully aware of it every day (and night). Just how many women deal with menopause? A lot. An estimated 6,000 U.S. women reach menopause daily, and by 2025, the number of postmenopausal women is expected to rise to 1.1 billion globally. Which means that you or someone you love will eventually deal with this issue, if you aren’t currently.

So if you didn't already know, it’s time to get initiated with what menopause is, how it disrupts sleep cycles, and how to stop it in its tracks.

What is Menopause?

Menopause is “the natural cessation of menstruation that usually occurs between the ages of 45 and 55” that marks the end of a woman’s reproductive period and typically lasts for around four years. Perimenopause refers to the stage preceding menopause where women experience the majority of symptoms.

The most infamous symptom associated with menopause quite often has the most damaging effects.

Hot flashes impact “up to 85% of American women,” causing women to suffer from insomnia and wake up in a pool of sweat. This is not only uncomfortable in the moment but leads to problems throughout the day caused by a lack of quality rest.

Learning to Cool Down Hot Flashes + Night Sweats

In short, menopause causes hot flashes, which causes lack of sleep, which causes a lot more problems on top of it all. If we can carry out a plan of action to decrease the impact of hot flashes, then we can decrease the impact of menopause.

How? Let’s get started.

It might seem too simple, but the answer to combating hot flashes and night sweats is to cool it down. And there are some important yet simple swaps you can make to ensure that you keep cool and sleep calmly. 

4 Steps to Cool Down the Sleep-Depriving Effects of Menopause

Step 1: The first step to good sleep is making sure that you’ve got the right clothing on for bed. That giveaway free t-shirt isn’t the best option when it comes to getting a good night’s rest. Cotton is one of the best options, but at the end of the day (literally) it’s up to you what you choose to wear, but make sure that you’re comfortable with it and that it’s breathable in order to stay cool.

Step 2: The second step is making certain that your room is ready for sleep. This includes getting your room to a comfortable temperature, dark and quiet.

Step 3: The third step is like the first one. It has everything to do with having the right bedding materials to ensure that you’re comfortable, breathable, and cool while asleep. I recommend cotton or bamboo sheets to combine the best in breathability and comfort.

Step 4: The fourth step is the game-changer that fits on top of your mattress and below whichever set of sheets that you choose. The key to combating the hot flashes that accompany menopause and keep women from getting great sleep is controlling your body's temperature. ChiliSleep products (that act as a cooling bed pad) are the best tools on the market to do just that. Whether you try out the original CubeOOLER, or the incredibly versatile weighted chiliBLANKET, there's an option for everyone!

ChiliSleep Reviews: 'My Night Sweats Have Disappeared'

Our products have been called the "menopause night sweat cure" and we are so happy to be helping improve how women sleep! Want to hear how other women are using ChiliSleep products to stay cool at night?

Here are testimonials from women who have harnessed the temperature-controlling powers of ChiliSleep's cooling mattress toppers:

Jessica W. said "Words can’t express how awesome the ChiliSleep system is! After an emergency hysterectomy in 2012 at the age of 32 and the immediate menopause and all its not-so-glorious symptoms – I am finally able to sleep comfortably at night. 9 years my husband has had to sleep in a fleece lined hoodie, flannel pants, and wool socks because I was so hot at night I ran a free-standing AC unit in our room. He’s threatened to pitch me a tent in the back yard during the middle of winter so he didn’t have to sleep in a meat locker. I ordered the system and have had it for one week now. He’s comfortable and not dressed like he’s going to sleep in an igloo! And I couldn’t be happier! For years I’ve said, 'Happy wife happy life,' but truth be told, it’s more so, 'Happy spouse, happy house!' And my house is definitely happy thanks to this awesome system!"

Kathleen G. said “I can’t believe that after suffering for the past 20 years with hot flashes and night sweats (due to menopause), that I’m finally getting relief. The morning after using the Cube for the 1st time I thought that it was a coincidence that I hadn’t woken up all night. The next morning was the same wonderful experience. Now that I have been using the Cube for over a week I know that it’s not a coincidence, THIS REALLY WORKS. I feel like a new person now that I’m getting a good night's sleep.”

Shannon H. was “desperately looking for something to help with premenopausal night sweats and would wake up in the middle of the night soaked and freezing. I was drenched from head to toe and would have to lay down a towel to try and get back to sleep. The daily changing of sheets gets old fast. I wanted to avoid supplements, there are not many good reviews on them and didn't want to add another drug to my system. I stumbled upon The Cube and it seemed to be the solution I was looking for. I felt it was a bit pricey, but with the money-back guarantee, was willing to give it a try. After a couple of days finding just the right temperature, my night sweats have disappeared. I would recommend the Cube to anyone suffering from night sweats. A great dry night's sleep is worth every penny.”

Sandra B., who was looking for ways to stay cool at night, said "The OOLER was the best purchase I ever made. No more night sweats!"

These are just some of the many women who have experienced menopausal relief using ChiliSleep products.

Could you or someone you know be next? Isn’t it time that you cooled down the hot flashes and woke up refreshed for a change? I think it is. So take these 4 steps to cool down those hot flashes and start sleeping well again!
