The Doctors welcome integrative medicine physician Dr. Nyjon Eccles to discuss claims about using magnets to treat menopause and one company's claim that clipping their product on to your underwear can help ease these symptoms.
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry is quick to note that based on current American research, there is no sufficient scientific evidence to support the company's claims.
Dr. Eccles, who was one of the researchers for one of these products, says that 500 menopausal women used the device over a 3-month period and he that 75 percent of the women found "significant relief" of a broad range of menopause symptoms. He also says there were no observed side effects.
The Doctors note that a control group, which would have been using fake magnets, was not used in that study. ER physician Dr. Travis Stork explains that a placebo effect can occur during a study and can result in inaccurate data. He says that he feels the study was "poorly designed."
Dr. Nita also notes that The National Institutes of Health says that magnets have not been proven to work for any health-related issues.
