A number of surveys have been conducted revealing that LadyCare could help to relieve menopausal symptoms.
The research findings of two major studies by Dr Nyjon Eccles (BSc MBBS PhD MRCP)
LadyCare survey with the British Association of Women Police.
In the most recent survey of LadyCare, 71% of the women involved reported fewer hot flashes after using the product. Dr Nyjon Eccles conducted the survey of 35 women from the British Association of Women Police, who worked for the Dorset Police force in the UK.
Dr Eccles’ research set out to establish how LadyCare worked after a previous study had shown the device to have such a positive effect in relieving menopausal symptoms.
As menopausal symptoms are regulated by the autonomic nervous system (ANS), which controls sweating and other bodily functions, Dr Eccles proposed that LadyCare was helping to balance the ANS.
All participants in the studies were perimenopausal or menopausal, and suffering with symptoms associated with menopause, especially hot flashes or night sweats. A recognized, non-invasive method of measuring ANS activity is by heart rate variability (HRV). Close inspection and measurement of the heart rhythm reveals that the measured time between each heartbeat varies. This variation is a reflection of the influence of the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) (speeding the heart) and parasympathetic nervous system (SNS) (slowing the heart down), and so it is a convenient way of measuring ANS activity.
The participants in the studies wore a LadyCare device continuously for three months. Of those involved in the study, 71% reported alleviation of their menopause symptoms one month after wearing LadyCare continuously. This also coincided with the data recorded on the HRV machine linking the menopausal symptoms with an imbalance in the ANS, which LadyCare could help to restore.
Survey To Determine The Effects Of LadyCare On Menopausal Symptoms
This study was prompted by anecdotal reports that menopausal symptoms were significantly improved whilst wearing LadyCare. Dr Nyjon Eccles decided to explore this further by conducting a survey to assess these effects with a larger group of women.
508 women experiencing perimenopause or menopause responded to an advertisement placed in the Daily Mail offering a free trial of LadyCare. Subjects were asked to report the duration of their symptoms and to rate them on a scale of 0 to 5 (with 0 indicating no symptoms and 5 indicating severe symptoms) prior to using LadyCare, and after one, two and three months of using LadyCare continuously.
The survey found that across the group, participants reported the following menopause symptoms:
- Hot flashes
- Vaginal Dryness
- Trouble sleeping
- Urinary incontinence
- Breast tenderness/soreness
- Feelings of doom
- Sudden weight gain
- Increased muscle tension
- Mood swings
- Loss of libido/sex drive
- Inability to concentrate
- Sore or painful muscles
- Disturbing lapses of memory
