When it comes to battling the symptoms of my menstrual cycle each month, the thought of using a safe, effective and hormone-free technology is like meeting the ally that I never knew I needed! This innovative and discreet device can help to reduce symptoms for women across the board, from menstrual cycles and moods to fatigue and tiredness during menstruation, as well as aches, cramps and hot flushes to name but a few.
LaBalance have a powerful two-piece moulded magnetic therapy device for menopause, mood and PMT relief. Invented in the UK by Derek Price in 2006, with menstrual and menopausal women in mind, these magnets are to this day heralded as an invention that is still way ahead of its years in assisting menopausal women struggling with symptoms as well as those facing PMT.
Customers from far and wide have praised the life-changing benefits of LaBalance, which really caught my interest whilst seeking relief from PMS symptoms. In many cases, customers report a sense of normalcy has returned to their lives for having used this device which has prompted me to give it a go.
You can be forgiven for thinking that this is just a magnet, as LaBalance is in fact wonderfully unique in using a series of very powerful magnets which have been specially manufactured with a protected directional device. Whilst magnetic therapy has been used for thousands of years in many different cultures, this isn’t something that I had ever been familiar with until meeting the owners of this wonderful brand at the Om Yoga Show where we feel into deep and insightful discussion about the ethos and advantages of this device.
Taking a deep dive into the science, magnetic therapy works by helping to restore the equilibrium to the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), and resultantly minimises various symptoms of the Menopause and PMT, with trials indicating that a very impressive 7 out of 10 users may experience relief from their symptoms.
Something that I found reassuring in my decision making to try magnetic therapy is that my purchase is fully covered by their 90-day no quibble money back guarantee; so if I happened to be in the unlucky 3 out of 10 users who didn’t experience any symptom relief then I can simply send my device back and I haven’t lost out on anything. My mother always reminds me “you’ll never know until you try!” Customer feedback reports that the best results are achieved by ladies who wear the device 24/7 for 90 days, which seems a very reasonable period of time to give it a fair chance.
Let’s Talk Periods!
Periods usually start during the transition known as puberty as a girl navigates out of childhood
and into adolescence. Mine painfully began at the age of 14yrs and were incredibly heavy and irregular which left me with terrible cramps, backache and fatigue. A period lasts on average between 3-8 days, and the menstrual cycle is repeated every 28 days or so, until a time in later life when periods naturally cease in the transition called the menopause around the age of 45-55yrs.
Whilst periods typically begin between the ages of 12-14yrs, they can start as early as 8-9yrs and symptoms may very in severity. Periods are part of the monthly menstrual cycle, as the body prepares for the possibility of becoming pregnant.
At each cycle, one of a woman’s two ovaries releases an egg which travels down the fallopian tube and into the womb. The womb lining thickens incase the egg is fertilised by a sperm, and if fertilisation is successful, it will be able to grow in this lining. If the egg isn’t fertilised the lining of the womb must break down and pass out out of the body as blood which is known as a period.
What Is PMS – Premenstrual Syndrome?
For some very lucky women, periods may come and go with no noticeable symptoms at all, aside from the passing of blood. However, as you’re reading this blog I presume that, like me, you sadly haven’t been so fortunate!
For many women, the changes in the body’s hormone levels before a period can cause very noticeable physical and emotional changes which can be difficult to manage. These changes can last for anywhere from a day up to two weeks before a period starts. PMS symptoms may be mild and hardly noticeable, or more severe and incredibly disruptive to monthly wellbeing and mental health as we manoeuvre the obstacles of life as mothers, partners and career women during this time.
These hormone changes are known as PMS, or Premenstrual Syndrome and common symptoms that women experience throughout their cycle include abdominal cramps, acne, breast pain or tenderness, depression, feeling bloated, feeling irritable, feeling tired, having food cravings, hair becoming more greasy, headaches/migraines, an increase in appetite/excess hunger, joint and muscular aches and pains, mood swings, nausea, a reduced libido, social withdrawal, tension, anxiety and weight gain.
Seeing as I also have IBS, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, I feel that I spend 99.9% of my life with abdominal cramps, bloating, acne, food cravings and tension. I also feel far more emotional upon the approach of my period and at times want to lock myself away, clutch a hot water bottle to my stomach, hug my dogs and curl up into a ball until I feel more human again after my period has ended and my lower back no longer feels like it’s breaking.
Due to my IBS it’s near on impossible for me to tell what is causing my abdominal discomfort on a daily basis, whether it be digestive issues or PMS symptoms, with the menopause looming in the not-so-distance future as I recently celebrated my 36th birthday, I’m conscious of tackling these symptoms head on before the list of symptoms and severity begin to grow! After all, to be forewarned is to be forearmed.
Finally A Hormone Free Alternative!
Whether you’ve found this blog whilst looking for online pain relief for the menopause, your menstrual cycle or mood support, LaBalance devices are a hormone free alternative that may help. Their wide range of benefits include helping with tiredness and fatigue during menstruation, as well as mood swings and nausea which for me is a plus point regardless of where you are at in your journey with hormones.
If you have any questions or queries about their devices for menstrual cycle mood improvement, they warmly welcome customers to reach out and contact the team online and have worked with women across the UK to become their go-to partners for a better, healthier and happier way of life.
Whenever I have visited my doctor to ask for help with my crippling period pain, irregular periods, bloating, hormonal acne and fatigue surrounding my cycle I’ve only ever been prescribed pots and packets of pills that have left me rattling with medication; ultimately chasing symptoms with with further hormones and medication exasperates my body with the additional side effects causing more trouble, trading one problem for another.
As I’ve crept into my thirties I now avoid taking medication and much prefer an alternative, more holistic approach to my health which has allowed me to have a strong immune system and maintain a healthy active lifestyle, but my periods and symptoms are of great inconvenience to my busy schedule as a single working parent.
What Is LaBalance?
LaBalance is a small, yet mighty, directional two-piece magnetic device which easily, discreetly and comfortably attaches to your underwear. For nearly 20yrs, LaBalance has helped thousands of women who are struggling with their Menopause as wearers praise the full or partial relief that it provides from their menopausal and menstrual symptoms. It also boasts to be so neat and comfy that you’ll forget it’s even there!
To use the device you attach it onto your underwear approximately 4 inches beneath the belly button, an inch to the left or right is fine, placing the large, smooth, curved part of the device against the skin. The magnetic button secures it perfectly in place and you can go about your day as usual whilst the magnetic therapy does its job.
My package arrived with a magnetic therapy device, a spare rear magnet and a travel pouch which is perfect for storing it safely should I wish to go swimming or remove whilst it at the gym. The magnets are so secure I keep my device on during cardio and weights training and it’s no problem at all.
The package also contains a 90 day money back guarantee registration tag so that I could activate my guarantee. You simply fill it in when you receive it, and if needed, you can return the device in its original packaging with your receipt within 90 days of purchase.
Having had my first period since wearing my device I am both thrilled and amazed by the positive difference that it has made to my cycle. The magnet is surprisingly smooth and unnoticeable, even when sleeping and wearing slim-fit clothing. I usually find myself feeling so restless on my period and tossing and turning all night in my sleep; feeling over-heated and suffering terribly from cramps make me feel so exhausted, uncomfortable and unenthusiastic by the morning.
Not only did I get a far better nights sleep whilst wearing my device, but in turn this gave me far more energy to start my day, I experienced less brain fog as a result of this and it made my period more of a background event in my day as opposed to being at the forefront of my mind due to relentlessly undesirable symptoms. I feel that the usual fluctuations in my mood, body temperature, cramps and discomfort during my period have greatly minimised and wish that I’d discovered magnetic therapy decades ago!
If you’re looking for a hormone-free alternative to taking medication and pain killers when facing symptoms then it’s definitely worth a try; with a money back guarantee there’s absolutely nothing to lose and a whole new way of life to gain through freedom from symptoms!
