Magic Magnets for Menopause
Menopause is when your periods stop (forever)and you can no longer get pregnant. You really have only reached menopause after it has been a full year since your last period. This means you have not had any bleeding, for 12 months in a row.
After menopause your ovaries produce very low levels (hormones) estrogen and progesterone. These low hormone levels can raise your risk for certain health problems.
Changing estrogen levels can also raise cholesterol levels and increase your risk for heart disease and stroke. Symptoms of menopause may begin suddenly and be very noticeable, or they may be very mild at first. Symptoms may happen most of the time once they begin, or they may happen only once in a while. Some women notice changes in many areas. Some menopausal symptoms, such as moodiness, are similar to symptoms of premenstrual syndrome
A company called Lady Care has taken the lead in the the menopause magnet market.
On their website they say : “Hot flashes, mood swings and a range of other symptoms can all have a major impact on your quality of life. LadyCare Plus+ is designed to reduce and relieve the majority of symptoms associated with menopause.”
They also list 24 symptoms of menopause:
- Hot flushes
- Mood swings
- Sudden tears
- Loss of libido, sex drive
- weight gain
- Vaginal dryness
- Painful intercourse
- Inability to concentrate
- Trouble sleeping
- Urinary incontinence upon sneezing or laughing
- Itchy, crawly skin
- heart racing
- Hair loss
- Stomach problems: indigestion and gas
- sore muscles, tendons and joints
- Breast soreness, tenderness
- Irregular vaginal bleeding
- Disturbing lapses of memory
- Increased muscle tension
- Bladder infections
Lady Care claims their magnet works by rebalancing the autonomic nervous system which is the part of our nervous system ( the involuntary one). This is the part that keeps the heart beating, lungs cycling, and your metabolism going.
From our main system, there are two main sides, the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Lady Care, claims these two divisions of the ANS get disrupted during menopause, causing hot flashes and etc.
Additionally they claim the magnet can reduce stress, supposedly reducing the troubling symptoms of menopause. ANS may play a role in menopause symptoms, but we are not convinced a close relationship exists.
After menopause, your body makes less of the hormones estrogen and progesterone. Very low estrogen levels after menopause can affect health and cause symptoms such as hot flashes.
Most researchers believe that menopause symptoms are caused by a multiple of factors with different body processes.
Maybe, Maybe not
Thus, it may be dubious to suggest that magnets have any effect on menopause.
