Menopause symptoms can be extremely difficult to navigate.
From hot flashes and night sweats to feelings of depression and/or anxiety, you can feel like you're completely losing it.
However, a device developed by Dr. Nyjon Eccles, one of the leading Integrated Medicine Physicians in the UK, is offering women relief.
The device, called LadyCare, is a small, discreet, pear-shaped magnetic apparatus that clicks into a woman's underwear. It applies a magnetic field into the pelvis (the magnetic field passes into the body, not externally).
Originally the device was made with the intention of easing period pain. In one study, three out of four women received significant relief from period pain with the device. Some of the women who participated in the study and who were in perimenopause reported that their symptoms also went away.
A follow-up study which looked at 23 unique menopause symptoms showed that a majority of menopausal symptoms were relieved in as little as one month and even more so after three months.
How does the device work?
According to Dr. Eccles, it's not a hormonal effect. Instead, the magnetic affects the autonomic nervous system, restoring balance. The autonomic nervous system is the part of the nervous system that's not under conscious control. A specific branch, the sympathetic nervous system, gears you up for fight or flight. The parasympathetic nervous system is the opposite and calms the body down.
LadyCare increases the parasympathetic system and cancels out the stress reaction of the sympathetic system.
If you look at the physiology and anatomy of the human body, the parasympathetic nerves come out in the pelvis and the neck, so that's why specific placement of the device near the pelvis is required.
