Natural remedies for menstrual pain


Dysmenorrhea, the medical definition for menstrual pain, is a widespread discomfort, especially in young women in whom the menstrual cycle has just stabilized. It represents the leading cause of absenteeism from school and work, as it is precisely girls under the age of 20, those who had their first period before the age of 11, women with heavy menstruation, and those who have never had children, who are most susceptible. Depending on the symptoms, there are different natural remedies.

Menstruation begins approximately every 28 days. During the first day we have a major lowering of estrogen and progesterone, hormones that have an important effect on mood, and that is why we may experience states of nervousness or emotional sadness. In addition, it is possible to feel a craving for chocolate.

How to recognize dysmenorrhea

Every woman reacts differently to pain, so the symptoms of dysmenorrhea can also vary from person to person and even from month to month in the same woman. In general, dysmenorrhea is characterized by intense pain in the lower abdomen, and severe cramping may alternate with more bearable pain.

This intense pain may involve the lower back, thighs and may be accompanied by a range of symptoms such as:

  • headache;
  • dizziness;
  • nausea;
  • sense of heaviness;
  • diarrhea;
  • breast pain;
  • irritability;
  • changes in mood;

Why are menstrual pains generated?

Triggering the pains are uterine contractions generated by PGE2 prostaglandins, molecules associated with inflammation. According to many experts, when these contractions are intense, they constrict the blood vessels that supply the uterus, depriving it of oxygen for a short time.

Natural Remedies Dysmenorrhea

Obviously, natural remedies for menstrual pain will aim to decrease the inflammatory state.

1. Physical Activity

A strong anti-inflammatory effect is produced by physical movement. Researcher Nicholas Young of Ohio University’s Wexner Medical Center showed that motor activity enabled “trained” mice to reduce local and general inflammation to the point of almost being completely eliminated. To make the beneficial effect of physical exercise effective and long-lasting, it is important to practice it 30-45 minutes, at least every other day.

2. Enema

The well-being of your bowels is critical to experiencing your menstrual cycle without pain. In my personal experience, when I restored a healthy intestinal transit and overcame problems related to constipation, pain no longer occurred; perhaps because I learned to let go? It is advisable to take an enema, to decrease the intensity of abdominal, back and headache pain. It is possible to perform them with warm water; in that case follow this procedure .

3. Power supply

Nutrition is also very important:it is necessary to limit or eliminate, as much as possible, proinflammatory foods such as animal protein, mainly red and processed meats, sausages, coffee, and stimulants (usually white sugar, sugary carbonated soft drinks, alcohol, and tobacco).
