5 Reasons to Try the Menopod

Menopod cooling device for hot flashes hot flushes menopause night sweats. great for on the go

The Menopod is the first of its kind in hot flash relief.  Let's break away from traditional ways to cool down as some aren't realistic in our busy day-to-day life. Why do we settle for the wet soggy packs of ice or peas, the fan that you can only stand in front of for so long at the office, or the water bottle on the back of your neck instead of drinking it? 

Meet the Menopod, the innovative new device that lets you take control of your day and your hot flashes once and for all.

Here are our top 5 reasons why you should try the Menopod

1.  The Travellers and Commuters are Loving the Menopod!

Instantly feel the cooling effect when you need it. Have you been on the subway, or in the middle of a long flight when you experience a hot flash? It's the worst time, as you may not have anything on you to help cool you down. You're in public, slightly embarrassed, hoping you can quickly change your sweat-drenched clothes as soon as you can get into a washroom. Or, you can pull out the Menopod and cool yourself down quickly and confidently.

2. Menopod Gives You the Control of Your Cooling Relief

An ice pack is cold at first, but it quickly melts, and you must refreeze it, juggling through multiples at a time. The Menopod gets cold when you tell it to. Not before. This gives you the power and freedom to cool down when you need it, unlike an ice pack. Take control. Cool down when you need to, throughout the day, without racing back to your freezer.

3. The Menopod is Designed to Fit in the Palm of Your Hand

The Menopod was designed to reflect the style of a computer mouse. This allows it to easily form to your hand, making it comfortable to hold. It allows discretion while keeping it on your desk. The Menopod curves comfortably around the back of your neck, offering ultra comfort when you need it the most. The ease of use is simply the push of its button.

4. Menopod = Rechargeable = Less Waste

Some women use wipes to help cool down after a hot flash. This is a quick, easy idea for women on the go, except for how much of a waste this can turn to be. Let's say, hypothetically that each pack have 20 cooling wipes. Buy 20 wipes for about $12.00 US. Now, let's be modest and say that you may deal with hot flashes 3 times a day. (Studies have shown that some women can experience hot flashes up to 20 times a day.)  The one pack will last you about a week (6 days), causing you to need about 4 packs (80 wipes) a month. That's 960 wipes a year. If this is constant, that's $576 US out of your pocket a year on something that you use once and then throw out. Or you could get the Menopod, that's rechargeable like your cellphone, and you only need to buy it once. When you are done with the Menopod, it can be safely recycled with other household electronics.

5. Trying the Menopod Has Never Been Easier!

There's nothing on the market like the Menopod! We understand it's a type of product that you need to try out and see how it can benefit you. Many companies only offer you 30 days to try out their products, which can cause you to feel pressured to decide quickly if you like it or not. Giving 100 days allows you to try out the Menopod, and really get the feel for it. Slow down the trial and the hot flashes all at once. If, by the 100 days you aren't satisfied, send it back to us. No questions asked.

How it Works

With the simple flip of a switch, the patented technology inside Menopod™ will instantly cool reaching approximately 41°F (5°C) within four (4) seconds. Just place it on the back of your neck and say goodbye to that hot flash. No more drippy ice packs or bulky gel packs.

Menopod™ is designed to work best in ambient temperatures between 60°and 90°F (0° and 35°C) and stored in temperatures between 0° and 95°F (-20° and 45°C). Menopod™ can be damaged, and battery life shortened if stored or operated outside of these temperature ranges.

Ambient temperatures will affect the operation of Menopod™. It is normal for Menopod™ to get warm with prolonged use. On average you may expect one to five (1 - 5) consecutive cycles before the device will need to cool before being used again. The recommended waiting period is ten to fifteen (10 – 15) minutes.

Avoid exposing Menopod™ to dramatic changes in temperature or humidity. The Menopod™ should never be submerged into water. If the unit is ever submerged, do not use the device.

Some of you might be wondering, what is the Menopod™?

The Menopod ® is a hand-held miniature refrigeration unit operating on the principle of the Peltier Thermoelectric Cooler. When activated it’s copper cooling plates immediately drop to 41 degrees F (5 degrees C). Menopod™ is small enough to carry in a purse and discreet to use. It works by counteracting what happens during a hot flash. When we suffer menopausal vasomotor instability (hot flash), our surface blood vessels dilate causing a flush and sensation of heat. Press the power button when the discomfort starts and place the Menopod™ on the back of your neck, where your thermoreceptors are most sensitive. Ice cubes or a bag of frozen peas might work too, but they are not instantly available and horribly messy and inconvenient.

The Menopod™ is the result of several years of extensive research and design by an experienced team of professionals. We wanted to create a product that would provide relief from menopausal hot flashes to be effective with no known side effects.

Our team looked to medical experts in the field too. Dr. Vivien Brown MDCM, CCFP, FCFP, NCMP renowned in her field, saw a real need for this kind of product. Brown says she has seen a slew of products for menopausal women introduced over the last few years -ranging from herbal remedies to sleepwear to hygiene items.

“More women are experiencing menopause today than at any time in history, with some starting to have symptoms as early as 40 years old,” said Dr. Brown. “Natural, convenient products such as the Menopod™ are an excellent choice for menopausal women providing relief from hot flashes and improving their quality of life without hormonal intervention and its potential side effects”. Hormone replacement therapy has been shown to reduce hot flashes; however, it has the stigma of potential long-term side effects, including an increased risk of breast cancer, heart disease and stroke.

Dr. Karen Snow, a Barrie-based Naturopath points out that the Menopod™ can be used in conjunction with prescribed natural supplements or on its own. “The market is ready for an effective non-evasive treatment. The fast relief from Menopod™ will give women confidence knowing they have a safe solution right in their hand,” she said.

For most women, non-medical solutions are sufficient to manage the symptoms of menopause. “About 80 percent of women will have symptoms – even 90 percent,” says Dr. Brown. “But only 20-30 percent will be disabled by their symptoms. And that’s a question I ask my patients: Are you disabled? Or can we just mitigate this by various things?”

Many of these options are straightforward: dressing in layers, not drinking alcohol and avoiding spicy foods or hot beverages can all help.

Some herbal supplements have proven popular as well, but Dr. Brown doesn’t recommend them. “Studies on some of the herbal remedies – like black cohosh, evening primrose and red clover – are inconclusive. They don’t look to be any better than placebos.”

Menopod™ customers have also reported that its cooling effects are useful for symptoms of migraine headaches, fever, hyperthermia (overheating) and may other. If cooling is effective, then Menopod can help!
