Magnets for menopause?

Posted , 8 users are following.

Hello ladies

In desperation I have just bought a ladycare magnet. I have been taking Sage, Soya & Starflower tablets for 2 weeks (no help) to help my flushes, palpitations, dizziness, insomnia, anxiety & memory.

I do not want to go down the HRT road at present. I am 54 & still have periods off & on

Any feedback from anyone 're the magnets or tablets would be much appreciated thank you smile

    Useful info 

    For a woman going through perimenopause, B-vitamins can be essential for effectively managing symptoms.   

    Adrenal fatigue, for example, is a common secondary condition for many women going through perimenopause.

    B-vitamins support healthy adrenal function, along with calming and maintaining a healthy nervous system. Many women also suffer with mood swings during perimenopause.

    Both B12 and B6 vitamins aid in the production of neurotransmitters such as serotonin, a key brain chemical needed to stabilize moods and promote feelings of wellness and contentment.

    For women who suffer with brain fog, and memory issues in perimenopause, low levels of B6 could be part of the problem.

    Depression, confusion, and an inability to concentrate are all associated with B6 deficiency. Vertigo, dizziness, and heart palpitations are also common complaints from women going through perimenopause.

    All of these symptoms have been associated with (among other things) a B12 deficiency.

    Vitamin B6 can also help with stubborn weight gain in perimenopause. It is key in the breakdown and utilization of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in our diet, and is necessary for a healthy metabolism - both which can help manage weight.

    100mg of B6 each morning 

    or Busy B complex ( containing 100mg b6 ) or Mega B 100 time release containing 100mg B6 ( both from holland and barret ) 

    B12 5000 mcg ( ug )  higher the better

      Vit E 400iu 

      Vitamin E

      This is an important vitamin to consider at the menopause.

      Over many years clinical studies have shown its effect on reducing hot flushes.

      Vitamin E is also helpful for vaginal dryness and one study showed that just 400iu taken daily for between 1 and 4 months helped 50 percent of the women given supplemental vitamin E.

      Although most women fear breast cancer, our biggest killer is heart disease.

      There is now such a wealth of information on the beneficial effects of nutrition on heart disease and unfortunately HRT has been shown to increase the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

      A study published in the Lancet showed that 2000 patients with arteriosclerosis (fatty deposits in the arteries) had a 75 percent reduction in their risk of heart attack when given vitamin E.

      At the time, researchers claimed that vitamin E was even more effective than aspirin in reducing heart attacks.

    Hi Karen, I too have been taking sage for my hot flushes and just wanted to say that sage, as with any herb, can take a while to get into your system before you will feel any benefit. I am after 6 weeks just starting to notice a reduction in my hot flushes. I would suggest that you persevere with it for a bit longer.

    I bought a magnet in January and used it for about a month in which time the hot flushes completely stopped. Sadly periods started again though sad

    Hot flushes started again in September when the periods stopped again and this time the magnet did nothing. I started on a variety of vitamins and supplements as recommended on here and the flushes did stop again.....however I have just started another period aarrggghhh.

    If anyone wants to try the magnet for less than cost price I am thinking about putting on e bay

      Oh dear sad Utter rubbish isn't it! Nothing nice about it at all is there? Should be a law against if I reckon lol. It's so good to hear I am one of many going through it. All my friends & colleagues don't seem to have it bad at all. One or 2 warm episodes & that's it. I think, like most of us here, we are getting quite extreme symptoms unfortunately sad Keep your chins up ladies x

    Yes miserablecry. I used to think that it would be a breeze but unfortunately that's not the case. I hate not sleeping and feeling like a zombie, totally inadequate and stupid and I hate what my body is doing to me and to top it all after 6 months with no periods "Alcazam" they are back with vengance.

      Hi Jay

      Yes i understand, it's awful, headaches are bad, confusion, think my work mates tolerate me I am now getting really fed up with it all. I am 55 next week and have had periods since 11 years old, think I am due my gold watch. Sage is really helping with hot flushes though.

      Hi Karen, 

      Just to repeat what I said before,, keep up with the sage because for me it seems to be working fotr the hot flushes. I also take chamomile capsules, which I am sure help with the stress.
