learn what triggers a hot flash-  caffeine, stress, hot foods, alchohol, warm places, are some.  If you feel a hot flash coming on, try breathing slowly.  Keep a fan around. 

I found that eating yogurt with active cultures helps a bit.

I'm not sure, but I think there are OTC supplements you can get to help with some of the symptoms.

Good luck!
