I have briefly touched upon night sweats in an earlier post, Biohacking Night Sweats and though it may be good to revisit the little literature on it. It is a symptoms of a vast multitude of conditions. Many of the conditions have association with some form of microbiome dysfunction.
- Nocturnal sweating–a common symptom of obstructive sleep apnoea: the Icelandic sleep apnoea cohort. reported by 30.6% of male and 33.3% of female
- Parasomnias and isolated sleep symptoms in Parkinson’s disease: a questionnaire study on 661 patients.  nocturnal sweating 28.8%
- Extraintestinal manifestations in children with gastrointestinal food allergy.  night sweats (34.4%),
A microbiome dysfunction seems the most common cause with the bacteria involved likely producing more than normal amount of energy.
Night sweats are repeated episodes of extreme perspiration that may soak your nightclothes or bedding and are related to an underlying medical condition or illness.Mayo Clinic – really helpful NOT,
Using contributed data and microbiomes we found these statistically significant:
Clearly, Barley with walnuts for breakfast is recommended. Licorice and Berberine also. For the latter two, inference suggests it may help
- Effects of Licorice on Relief and Recurrence of Menopausal Hot Flashes  ” Findings showed that licorice root is effective in reducing the frequency and severity of hot flash. “
- Potential Benefits of Berberine in the Management of Perimenopausal Syndrome  ” There is growing evidence that berberine can, at least partially, minimize the negative consequences on the organism caused by low estrogens levels, …”
In terms of formal science, we get no traction. In terms of citizen science, we came up with some concrete suggestions that are very low risk.
