Menstrual cramps are every woman’s nightmare. This one week per month holds with it pain, an an annoying feeling of unease. This cycle induces pains, and hence women tend to medicate with painkillers, or with various over the counter prescriptions. However, natural remedies are within our reach, and they take much better effect than other forms of chemical medication. So today, we have come up with a list of natural remedies which can help alleviate pain, with natural elements.
A hot bath:
Cold temperatures induce more and more pain, however a warm bath can help ameliorate blood flow, and render the body warm, and decrease the pain. Some people believe showering on the first day of the menstrual cycle is harmful, however a warm shower has all the benefits for one’s body.
A patch of alcohol on the lower belly, or a warm water patch:
This one is our personal favorite, as it goes a long way with alleviating pain. It works like magic, apply a cloth of alcohol on the lower belly, and rest.
Anise is actually a natural sedative, it is one of the things we have already discussed on the blog, and it truly is a great manner for us to be able to medicate and reduce pain without the need to take in chemicals.
