How To Get Rid Of Period Pain: Genius Invention Could Provide An ‘Off Switch’ For Cramps

Post by Guest on Wed Apr 13, 2016 7:08 pm

There’s nothing worse than crippling period cramps. Thankfully, this could soon be a thing of the past as a group of womb warriors (read: scientists) have invented a device which claims to “switch off” period pain entirely. The gadget, called Livia, is currently being crowdfunded on Indiegogo where it has surpassed its target of $50k by a long shot. (As it stands, it has reached $95k.)

The device, which can reduce pain almost immediately, works by stimulating nerves and blocking the pain from passing to the brain.

Pulse stickers are applied to where pain is felt. Users can then turn the device on and adjust the intensity depending on the level of pain.

There's already a device that does exactly this (it wasn't marketed for period pain but pain in general)

It's called the TSE machine. Works the same kind of way and has been around for years.

They were made by Acticare but the site isn't up and running anymore? Just checked

Google Acticare TSE machine - you can read testimonials and it literally helped a few people I know with back pain - this was about 7 years ago, they've been around ages.

Works the same way as the one didge has mentioned in the OP

If you read pages 5 and 6 Eddie, it's a TENS machine but you use it differently to supply TSE.  Daughter had a tens machine, didn't do a bit of good, although I know it works for some people.

My other half had one and we also had a tens machine and they were completely different sassy.

The tens sends pulses and TSE sends like little spikes or electrical shocks - can't explain it but they're different

Going to try and show you

If you go on Amazon (we didn't buy ours from Amazon but Acticare directly) the only thing that comes up is this when you put in TSE unit

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Acticare-TENS-Relief-Treatment-Machine/dp/B0012KVTHK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1460641386&sr=8-1&keywords=TSE+unit


If you put in TENS you'll see the difference in products and prices

All I can say is it worked
I read an articles about it once and we bought one and it worked

It's an accumulative thing so go on it religiously

Or even better, try Bowen Therapy - it's a manipulation of tissue and is fantastic

Above and beyond excellent

Bear Ghrylls had it for his broken back and swears by it

Bowen therapy won't work on my knee, because the cartilege is badly damaged from a fall, manipulation will make it worse.

Sorry I worded it wrong and it's just for people like you

Recipients are generally fully clothed. Each session typically involves gentle rolling motions along the muscles, tendons, and fascia.[11] The therapy's distinctive features are the minimal nature of the physical intervention and pauses incorporated in the treatment.[12] Proponents claim these pauses allow the body to "reset" itself.[3]


Look it up and Look at testimonials

They can also "cure" or "help" fertility too - not that you require that lol

My 79 yr old neighbor guy ridiculed my 'TOMMYCOPPER' gloves and knee sleeves...but his wife finally ordered him one for this past birthday --- he walked over yesterday and apologized for his attitude and is doing so much better. Razz

I'm not quite understanding the entire why or how; but they work...I was having such horrid hand cramps while trying to drive - glove took care of that issue/had horrible knee joint pain since my condition got worse --- son gave me 2 knee sleeves and I'm now needing another pair --- I've worn them out but was able to decrease the amount of hydrocodone {500 mg pain tablets}
  https://www.copperfitback.com/?mid=6790135 

Menstrual Cramp Pain; we were told to do lay down and do stomach crunches and touch your toes rapidly as much as you could stand {circa early 60's}...we didn't have all of the OTC meds and muscle stimulations {tens units} that they have now...we just had to do some serious deep muscle exercise to relieve those cramps and it works too.

Tens Unit; mother was prescribed one due to her nerve damage and constant muscle spasms while confined to her bed --- we'd both used one before for our migraine/tension headaches but it was a $29.95 cheap Iqia unit that ran off of a 9volt battery. 
Medicare purchased her 10's Unit because PT {physical therapy required it} it's mega wattage and has deep muscle settings and settings that just help move surface blood vessels --- aided in keeping blood moving and avoiding atrophied muscle to bone issues.  They work if used properly.
