Treating Menstrual Cramps at Home

Menstrual cramps hold the power to make you say goodbye to your daily activities while you’re on your period. Though most people believe that it is absolutely okay to have cramps and rest while you survive through them, some hate being a victim. It is recommended that you do not take any medicines to ease the cramp pain as the drugs may interfere with your menstrual cycle. However, this isn’t always the case as some type of medication may be needed. We will look at a few home remedies that you can turn to in order to decrease the menstrual pain.

Menstrual cramps are caused by the contractions of the uterus wall while it bleeds. The contractions lead to the cut off of the blood supply to the uterus which furthermore increases the pain. The intensity of the cramps as well as the blood flow varies from woman to woman depending on the thickness of the uterus wall that was developed to prepare the body for pregnancy and the physical and sexual life of a woman. Irrespective, there are some ways in which women can actually train their bodies to feel less pain.

The first step is to track your period by maintaining a menstrual calendar. This helps you to chart your emotions, pain severity and mood swings. When you have a period cycle in front of you, you can easily take ibuprofen at least two days before the anticipated date of bleeding. It helps block prostaglandins – they are responsible for the pain and cramping. Reduce those and you reduce the pain.

Some women witness constipation or loose motions at the beginning of their period. 3 days before your expected day of bleeding, you should consume at least 8 servings of fruits and vegetables to maintain a healthy colon. This will decrease the constipation and/or the loose motions as well as the pain caused by them.

While you’re menstruating, you should avoid eating red meat, fatty and fried foods, caffeine and refined sugars. It is recommended to consume more of cayenne pepper. According to scientists, refraining from normal tea and switching to chamomile tea is a good option to decrease the pain. Bilberry is another food that should be consumed at the time of menstruation.

Moving on to physical activities, including regular exercise in daily routine helps maintain a larger threshold for cramp pain. Physical movement improves the blood and oxygen circulation in the body which helps fight uterine contractions. Having a physically active routine also acts as a good way to channel any stress or anxiety that the body and brain may be dealing with.
