In order to help decrease or eliminate hot flashes many women have successfully used Lignans and Flax! Here is one customer's letter:

My Story re: Breast Cancer, Flax and Flax Hull Lignans

My name is Mary E. I was diagnosed with Stage II Breast Cancer in April 2005. I have had 3 surgeries, 6 mos of Chemotherapy + 3 mos of daily Radiation Therapy. My Oncologist assures me that I'm now cancer free, although I must take Tamoxifen every day. The Tamoxifen has caused me to have multiple hot flashes each hr of each day. I think I was experiencing up to 100 hot flashes/day before I found Flax Lignans...
Flax Hull Lignans have been found to reduce hot flashes and the combination of taking Flax and Flax Hull Lignans has reduced the occurrence and reoccurrence of Breast Cancer.

My hot flashes have completely disappeared.

I am not suffering from any hot flashes now.... Although there is an expense to taking both of these nutritional supplements, that expense is nothing in comparison to the expense of monthly co-pays for Chemotherapy and Radiation treatments in the hundreds of dollars....
I feel so good about giving my body something good every day. I will continue taking Flax and Flax Hull Lignans for the rest of my life, and thanks to the elimination of hot flashes, my quality of life has improved dramatically....~Mary E.
