For many women going through the menopause, HRT is not a viable option. They may have a history that precludes them from this option or they may choose not to use HRT.
Then there are herbs that many people swear by, but for others they are a waste of money.
I like to address menopause with diet and lifestyle changes but for many women this may not be unachievable or practical.
After much research I was able to find a fantastic solution that boasts a 70% success rate.
It ticks all the boxes for me.
Firstly I will share a little background on what is going on in your body when it comes to the perimenopause and menopause.
You may have already heard about fluctuating hormones, dropping oestrogen levels, and non existent progesterone levels.
What you may not be aware of is the fact that what is also going on is the imbalance in the autonomic nervous system. Stay with me and I will explain all and I will keep this brief.
The Autonomic Nervous system (ANS) regulates your body processes such as heart rate and breathing. This all happens without any conscious effort from us.
Within the Autonomic Nervous system is the sympathetic (SNS) and parasympathetic (PNS) nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system is stimulatory in nature while the parasympathetic is one of conserve and restoration.
A simple example is that the SNS increases heart rate while the PNS slows heart rate.
During Perimenopause and into menopause the ANS becomes imbalanced. You end up with a ANS that is more stimulation than restoration and thus can be a main contributor to your hot flushes and night sweats.
LadyCare is a magnetic therapy. You attach the magnet to your panties so that the magnetic therapy is in line with your uterus. It is the receptors in your pelvic area that the magnetic therapy is addressing hence the application to your panties.
The theory behind the device is that the magnetic therapy helps to restore balance to your ANS, bring more restoration to your body. The result is that you should experience less hot flushes and night sweats, or even none at all.
I wanted to try this therapy out and see for myself if there was any truth to what the literature was saying.
I admit I was sceptical. Being non-invasive I felt I had nothing to lose and that if it worked I would shout it from the roof tops to let as many women as possible know.
I do not suffer from regular hot flushes or night sweats. I do take steps to avoid them so maybe I am experiencing more than I realise. I wanted to see what LadyCare would do for me.
I do know when I will suffer the dreaded night sweats. Those are the nights when I overdose on garlic (my love), too much alcohol or after particular stressful days.
3 months ago I started my experiment and I am please to report that …..I am a convert.
Even though I did not suffer night sweats generally, I did notice that I would not cuddle into my husband as the heat from him would make me too hot and uncomfortable. Two weeks into using the LadyCare device we now enjoy cuddles without me pushing away.
Using LadyCare has made me more relaxed during the day. Perhaps my ANS was out of sync without me realising it. I certainly find myself not as stressed as I usually am when I in my usual stressful haunts. We all have these haunts. One of mine is in a traffic jam. Getting stressed is not going to move the traffic. The traffic will finally clear, and it does, this time with one less stressed out driver!
