Definition and manifestation
Night sweats, as the name itselfsuggests, stands for excessive body sweating during the night, whilesleeping. Since night sweats are different but very similar to, letus say, overexposure to warmth it is hard to successfully diagnoseit to begin with. Namely, this condition is not connected to heat ofthe room where one sleeps or the temperature in general but moreconnected with excessive sweating with no external cause.Additionally face redness and heat strikes are not connected to thiscondition.
Mainly because of the difficulty inpinpointing the exact cause of night sweating, a doctor is supposedto examine entire medical history of the suffering patient sincethere can be many causes and underlying factors causing it.
Possible causes and cures
Many different medications may havenight sweats as their noted side effect therefore be careful whenusing those and be aware of the consequences.
As far as cures are concerned, thereare many medications based on different herbs, and the effects varyfrom one individual to another. The most controversial of all theseherbs is Black Cohosh. A world-wide known remedy, extremely popularwith women fighting their menopausal heat flashes, it is known to bean extraordinary well remedy when it comes to night sweats as well.However, although some say it does wonders, other refuse to use itbecause of its side-effects claiming it to cause digestive system andliver damage.
Another renowned medicine for nightsweats is Dong Quai. Again, the efficiency of this medicine is quiteambivalent among its users and consumers. Some are quite satisfiedand found cure in it while others are disappointed and left sufferingfrom this condition. Researches have been made showing that thisplant's effect relies greatly on a placebo and that this is,basically, all that it ever does. Science has not yet managed toprove this true or false so the main choice lies in those who choosethese kinds od medications. Additionally numerous side-effects andreactions to other medications make many people give up on this one.
Finally, Ginseng presents yet anothermedicine claimed to remedy this condition. Regardless of its possiblesuccess, scientists prove that it mainly causes more relaxed sleeprather than removing the sweating.
