Treating Menopause with Magnetic Therapy

Magnetic therapy for treating menopause.
Magnetic therapy can be effective for the treatment of a variety of menopause symptoms, according to research performed in the UK.

A study done on hundreds of women discovered that utilizing magnetic therapy can help relieve many menopause symptoms, from anxiety and moodiness, to hot-flashes and cognitive issues. Nearly all of the participants reported at least a modest improvement of some of their symptoms. The study discovered that some women reported relief of nearly 70 percent of their symptoms including anxiety, moodiness, tiredness, insomnia, incontinence and breast tenderness. Hot-flashes, sweating at night, irritability, loss of sex drive and cognitive problems were reported to improve by about 30 percent, and 20 percent of the participants lost some weight – some of them losing over 20 pounds after using magnetic therapy continuously for 3 months.

Biomagnetic therapy (magnetic therapy) is an easy and simple alternative to hormone replacement therapy, a therapy connected with breast cancer, heart disease and strokes. Scientists are not sure why magnetic therapy worked, but theorized that it may increase estrogen levels, the hormone which naturally lowers through menopause. These decreased levels are the cause of many menopause symptoms. Nearly forty percent of women going through menopause pursue medical treatment for symptoms.

Some previous research has indicated magnet therapy can help ease pain associated with periods and also help to accelerate wound healing. It is believed that magnets may affect the body in a number of ways, accelerating healing by improving circulatory function and helping to easing pain by disrupting nerve signals that send information about discomfort to the brain.

Fortunately, most of the symptoms and problems connected with menopause are temporary. Menopause is a completely natural part of life and most women don't require medical treatment to handle their symptoms. If you have insomnia, don't drink caffeinated beverages and don't exercise right before going to bed. Try practicing some relaxation techniques, including deep breathing, guided visualization and muscle relaxation techniques. To help alleviate hot-flashes, try to get regular exercise, wear layers of clothing, and attempt to identify your triggers. Triggers may include such things as hot beverages, spicy food, hot temperatures, or alcohol.
