Internal Heat & Hot Flashes’ Natural Home Remedies 57 comments   Recently updated !

Yes! There are natural home remedies for internal body heat and hot flashes (hot flushes).

But before I reveal the ultimate natural home remedy, lets quickly discuss the two terms.



Internal Heat

This is a situation in which a person feel heat sensations all over the body or internal heatin some specific areas of the body.

Sometimes, the heat starts from the stomach, the chest, the throat or the waist region and radiates all through the body.

In fact some people feels very hot from inside (high core temperature) but would have a normal temperature outside the body (skin temperature)

Moreover, some will feel intense internal body heat and will start sweating profusely while others will only feel hot within without sweating.

Internal heat occurs irrespective of the environmental or atmospheric conditions and may sometime come with headache, tiredness and rapid  heartbeat.

No matter the form it shows up, Internal heat in the body makes the sufferer very uncomfortable.


Causes of Internal Heat in the body

As a matter of fact, Internal heat is not a disease. Rather, it come as symptoms or signs that your body put in place so as to inform you that something may not be right or to warn you of an impending danger within your body

Therefore, when the underlying cause is treated, the internal heat vanishes easily.

There are several factors that can cause internal body heat. This factors ranges from minor to major. Here are some of them

  • Dehydration
  • Hot atmospheric conditions that prevent proper core body temperature regulation through sweating.
  • Improper clothing
  • Strenuous physical activities or exercise
  • Certain drugs and stimulants such as cocaine etc
  • Excessive worry and Emotional problems.
  • Illness and medical conditions such as malaria, infections, stomach ulcer, high blood pressure, insomnia, seizures, muscular agitations, neurological disorders, rare tumors and lots more.

It is of utmost importance that you study your body well so as to know your exact actions that triggers the internal heat.

Knowing these triggers will help you to avoid them as much as possible.

Based on our survey, Here are some common triggers

  • Hot and Spicy foods
  • Oil and fried foods
  • Foods rich in sodium
  • Caffeine and Alcohol
  • Cigarette smoke



Hot Flashes (Hot Flushes)

A hot flash is experienced as a feeling of warmth or intense heat spreading over the body. It may be accompanied by red, flushed face, perspiration and rapid heartbeat.

Just like internal heat, A hot flash is a symptom and not a medical condition.

Hot flashes are often very brief ranging from about 30 seconds to a few minutes. On the average, a hot flash lasts between two and thirty minutes.


Causes of Hot Flashes

Although the major cause of hot flash has not yet been determined. This is probably due to the fact that majority of research on hot flashes are focused on the remedy.

Nevertheless, there is a general knowledge that hot flashes occur as a result of declining level of the reproductive hormone either in a man or in a woman.

But the exact way in which this reduction in hormone level affects thermoregulation in the body is not fully understood.

Generally, Hot flashes are characteristic symptoms of perimenopause (around menopause) and menopause. This is primarily because there is a notable reduction in the level of female reproductive hormone (estrogen) around this time.

However, several other factors and medical conditions as listed above can also cause hot flashes.


Natural Tips to Combat Hot flashes

  1. Avoid the triggers
  2. Eat healthy: Since it is generally accepted that the major cause of hot flashes is reduction in the reproductive hormone level. Hence taking foods that will increase the hormone level will adequately combat the hot flash.
    Examples of food items rich in estrogen/phytoestrogen are : Black cohosh, Flaxseed oil, Red clover, wild yam etc
  3. Take vitamins especially Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
  4. Stay Hydrated.
  5. Wear the right type of clothing
  6. Breathe slowly and deeply
  7. Stay in a cool environment especially at night

Theory behind the natural home remedy

The ingredients for the home remedy is simply coconut water, coconut meat and honey both of which have great benefits.

Below are some of the benefits that can be derived from coconut water and the meat.

  • Refuels and rehydrates – Coconut water maintains the body’s fluid levels and its potassium content helps maintain water pressure within cells and blood.
    Here is what a Professional tennis player John Isner said about coconut water
    “It is super hydrating and has kept me going in long matches and prevented me from cramping even in the hottest and most humid conditions,”
  • Due to its high electrolyte content, coconut water improves nervous system functioning and nerve transmission.
    It also prevents cramps and spasms in the muscle
  • Reduces the risk of hypertension and strokes and helps prevent or resolve kidney stones.
  • Improves digestion and metabolism via bioactive enzymes. Aids absorption of food and efficacy of drugs due to its electrolytic effect. Soothes intestinal pain/spasm.
  • Its Lauric acid content is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral. It boosts the immune system in fighting infection whilst helping to eradicate intestinal worms and candida.
  • Contains compounds (cytokinins) that protect cells from aging and cancer.

Similarly the benefits of honey even as regards menopause can not be over emphasized.

Take good care of your body! You’ve got no other place to live in

      • Ife Oluwatuyi Post author

        Hello Benedict,
        Technically, the internal heat may be telling you that there are issues that needs urgent attention within you. for example, It could be that hormonal imbalance is responsible for the heat all over your body that means getting pregnant will be difficult with hormonal imbalance

      Hi Unyime,
      Refrigerate means to put in d fridge so that it doesn’t get spoilt
      After blending, you should take half a glass daily preferably at night.

    • Ebenezer Meshida

      What difference does it make if the meat is not blended, but eaten, and the coconut water is blended with honey and drunk?

      • Ife Oluwatuyi Post author

        Hi Ebenezer,
        Thanks for reading. There is actually no much difference. But blending it brings the items together and the right dosage can be administered.

    • Ife Oluwatuyi Post author

      Hi portia,
      Yeah, stress can cause it by dropping your progesterone level.
      If you are close to menopause, then i will suggest that you take foods that will increase your progesterone level.

    My problem is that I usually experience internal heat around my waist and legs and this has been on for the past six months or so. Will this remedy of coconut meat, coconut water and honey help alleviate this problem?

    • Ife Oluwatuyi Post author

      YES, the coconut combination is very effective but if in any case you didn’t see any improvement after a week of taking it please send me a mail

      Sorry about the terrible feeling.
      This solution is applicable to men also… Do take it for 3days and let me know if you don’t feel any different. Then we can talk of herbal preparation to resolve the issue

  • Dan

    Thanks Ife. That piece is very informatiive. The remedy for internal heat is surprisingly simple and affordable. Do you have a herbal remedy for the medical condition known as cervical/focal dystonia? For the avoidance of doubt,it is a neurological disorder that usually affects the neck and face region of the body xterized by involuntary movements,spasms and pain. The symptoms also include uncontrollable smarking of the lips,numbness and tingling of the toes and finger. It is a very debilitating condition that may be accompanied by uncontrollable facial grimace(tardive dyskinesia) Orthodox and other known brands of medicine have no known cure for it and the treatment options are useless. Kindly help!!!

    • Ife Oluwatuyi Post author

      Hi goddy,
      Sorry about the dry lips and the two spots on it. It cant actually be attributed to internal heat.
      However, embarking on the therapy will do you no harm but a preferable solution to the lips will be to put honey on your lips several times in a day or a mixture of honey and glycerin. Lemme know if you have further questions

    Plzz tell me how i cure myself from this.

    • Ife Oluwatuyi Post author

  • Benny goodmind

    Thanks for this post. Honestly this feeling keeps me very miserable. It started with just internal heat within my legs and expanded to the stomach, chest and finally fever and headache. I kept on going to doctors. Some said it’s allergy another suggested infection. I took antibiotics of different types both prescribed and self prescribed. At a point I went for CBC check. After that I was asked to go for H.i.v and Ebola test as the body heat, fever and headache persisted but all were negative. Then when I stumbled on your blog, I started to investigate on the triggers. First I stopped everything fried and oil as a whole. I stopped pepper. I was on chicken without the skin and vegetables. Then honey and cold fresh milk as I couldn’t find coconut because I’m currently in Morocco. So after a day or two I noticed that the fever had stopped and the internal body heat had reduced to the minimal. But yesterday and today I ate stew and here I am now with the internal heat around my abdomen,chest and legs. I have thrown the stew away because I can not go through the same thing I went through in the past weeks. Please what are the other triggers of this internal heat?
    Thanks and God bless.


    I read your suggestion with this i am happy. and will try of your remedy if it will work then most thanks to you all

      Hello Ekpedelinah,
      I dont think internal heat is the cause of your abdominal pain… Probably something else is responsible for both.

  • Foz

    Hi, thank you for the artical. I have a lot of heat and inflammation in my bladder and pelvic area also I have heat in my head. My hands and feet are generally cold. What would you recommend I can take to resolve this issue, as I don’t want to take anymore antibiotic which I have to take whether a infection is present or not. At the moment antibiotics are the only thing that help.
    Thank you. Your advice would be much appreciated.
