Alternate Pain Relieving Methods for Menstruation:
Although having a menstruation period has its positive side, pain and cramps are undoubtedly the least pleasant part of menstruation. While taking ibuprofen can offer quick and effective pain relief, certain pain relievers and anti-inflammatories can affect the liver and stomach when taken in excess (when in doubt, we recommend that you consult your doctor).
Resorting to natural remedies such as those shown below can offer the same results as some medications and even be more pleasant.
How to tackle period cramps?
Period pain is a common problem among women. Some studies suggest that approximately 75% of young women and 25-50% of adult women experience pain or discomfort during their period.
Although it is normal to feel period pain during menstruation, experts assure that “it is an important public health problem that is a frequent cause of school and works absenteeism, and impoverishes the quality of life of women”.
Women who suffer pain during menstruation experience both physical changes (headaches, fever, abdominal pain, colic, diarrhoea, etc.) and emotional changes (irritability and mood swings, among others). There are even countries, for example, Japan, where there are laws that guarantee days off for period cramps.
For some women, these annoyances go almost unnoticed, but for others, they turn into a real hell every month. If this is your case, stay reading these recommendations.
Natural remedies for menstruation pain:
We are going to talk about four possible alternatives to relieve menstrual pain and also natural ones. Take note.
– Ginger in any form: Ginger does double duty in soothing some of the most uncomfortable menstrual symptoms: drinking ginger candy or tea relieves nausea caused by severe period cramps, and according to the study, ginger (250 mg capsules) is as effective as the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs mefenamic acid (250 mg) or ibuprofen (400 mg) for pain relief in women with primary dysmenorrhea – marching a helping of sweet and spicy ginger.
– Eat less fat (or at least healthier): Craving chocolate during your cycle is normal, but maybe you should go for something healthier when period cramps overwhelm you. Some research suggests that a low-fat vegetarian diet appears to be associated with a decrease in colic, although it is also possible to enjoy these benefits without being a vegetarian if most of the fats in your diet are based on nuts, fish, and vegetable oils. So yes, avocado counts.
– Cinnamon infusions: Cinnamon boiled in water is a pain reliever used for this type of pain due to its relaxing capacity.
– Say yes to a healthy life: Practice sports and eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Lack of physical exercise, excessive consumption of tobacco, caffeine, and alcohol, in addition to suffering from stress, and an emotional or affective state, do not help.
– Massages: Massage the ovaries area for a few minutes. After a while, you will notice an obvious improvement. We can add a few drops of rosemary alcohol to this massage.
– Evening primrose oil can become your great ally: Due to its high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids, this seed contributes to well-being during the menstrual period. Help reduce the discomfort that may accompany menstruation. Also, Primrose Oil can help to increase your well-being during the premenstrual period.
– A touch of heat: There’s nothing like snuggling with a hot water bottle or an electric blanket on your belly. Research claims that it can be as effective as ibuprofen when it comes to relieving period cramps. You can use warm massage oil to gently massage your abdomen, as well as diluted essential oils if you like aromatherapy, with pampering.
Trust us, follow these tips. Your period doesn’t have to turn into a nightmare. Say goodbye to period cramps.
