You know when you are sick and tired of being sick and tired? That is how I have been feeling for the past 15 years!
One thing I know I hate is having to travel with the burden of a bloated and painful tummy. I remember my trip to Mauritius like it was yesterday because besides feeling fat, I felt awful the whole time. If only Livia was a thing then, I would have conquered period pains like a champ.
This month I had the opportunity to try out a new product by Livia South Africa which is a small device which works to reduce the amount and pressure that comes with period pains.
Livia stimulates the nerves, making it impossible for pain to pass. The method Livia uses has been proven effective in several clinical studies and I strongly recommend the use of the device to relieve PMS at any time. -Prof Bari Kaplan
HOW IT WORKS:
The technology behind Livia is based on the Gate Control Theory, which states that non-painful signals close the gate to painful signals – blocking the sensation of pain before it’s even felt. In other words, Livia sends stimulating pulses from the surface of the skin to the nerve strands, preventing pain signals from reaching the brain.
By just connecting the cable to the device and the other end of the gel pads to your problem area- either the lower back or lower abdomen, switching it on and concentrating the amount of pressure the electrolyte should reach for those pulses to ease pain. The device can last up to 5 years and the gel pads can be replaced after every three months if used accordingly.
WHAT YOU BUY AND GET:
The product package is very simple and well protected so it is highly unlikely that you will receive a damaged product. The colours have been well thought of as they are those that ease the brains and playful. In the Livia South Africa package, you get:
- A Livia device
- A cover in any colour you like as shown in the pictures.
- A case to store and travel easy
- Three (3) months supply of gel pads.
- USB cable to charge
- A detachable cord for the device and gel pads
I have received a lot of comments asking how much the product is and for only R1980, the entire package is yours. If you calculate, the product will only cost you R33 a month over 5 years and that is even CHEAPER than the pills we buy to get rid of the pain. If I had know about this, I would have put it on my shopping list a long time ago or asked someone to get it for me as a Christmas or birthday gift- yes you can do that! The best thing about this is that you can use it for 120 days and if it does not work, you can claim your money back and return the product (this is what I thought would happen with me because my period pains get so brutal, I still have mine and I don’t even have a thought of taking it back).
WHAT I AM EXCITED ABOUT:
If I could go back in time to the many times I have toured places like Paris and the Netherlands and my work trip to Mauritius to have Livia South Africa’s device with me, I would have better memories of my period. Now I can take my girl buddy with me everywhere I go and use it on the plane. It is very small and can fit into any purse which means, drinks are on me- or my girls when they decide to hijack me to an evening of fun, music and drinks!
