Hot flushes and night sweats, experienced at the time of menopause can be overwhelming, especially when the weather heats up. Women report that during the day in the Summertime, it’s difficult to cool down between flushes, and the short bursts of sleep they do get are interspersed by thermal surges during the night, leaving them feeling anxious, exhausted and foggy-headed by morning.
There are many tools, acknowledged through research, designed to address the thermal issues and calm anxiety, but most of them take time to kick in. Whether you choose to take HRT or adding phytoestrogen-rich food and supplements to your regime, which fool the brain into thinking that normal hormone levels are circulating, it will likely be a while before the results are apparent.
Research does show that we can reduce flushes by up to 60 per cent by doing a formal session of relaxation each day. But, busy minds often find it hard to switch off, and many women find it challenging to meditate. The Pzizz programme, which is a science-based power-napping App, including a sleep programme, does it all for us. It’s designed to take us into a deeply relaxed state and programmed to bring us out the other end, feeling calmer and cooler; a bit like a phone that’s plugged in for a recharge.
It sounds unbelievable, but it works, and menopause women love it.
“I use it every day...helps me sort myself out”, says Jackie, one of our boot camp participants.
“At first I was sceptical, but now I am a believer”, states Julie, another boot camp participant. “It is a wonderful pick-me-up during a stressful day.”
So how does it work?
Pzizz combines several different proven techniques to give you the most refreshing and revitalising nap possible. It is a blend of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and cognitive behaviour therapy, with specially composed music, sound effects and a beat that induces a wonderfully relaxed state. There are so many ‘Dreamscapes’ from which to choose. For example, you can elect to be transported to a beach, the mountains, the Cosmos or the valleys with cascading waterfalls. You can vary the length of the session and create a tailor-made programme every time. It also comes with a sleep programme that helps to train you to have a quality restful sleep.
The Pzizz app goes everywhere your phone does so you can literally take time out and use it anywhere. My patients say it’s life-changing, and I feel the same way. So much so, I managed to arrange a discount for everyone with the company. So now, when you enter the code BESTPZIZZ for a 50% discount
