There is an article in Health News on this site that is about a new study and exercise easing some of the symptoms of menopause. Unfortunately, this study states it did not help with hot flashes, just the ability to cope with them. It does say that exercise was great for stress reduction and depression.
If you're having a problem with nite sweats and hotflashes, cohosh or flaxseed/flaxseed oil seem to be quite popular. I personally came upon the flax for something else and it worked absolutely terrific for controling both the above symptoms.
