Do you experience pain below your abdomen during monthly period? Does it often result in dizziness, diarrhoea, vomiting, and fever? If yes, relax your mind; you’ve got a lasting solution right at your fingertips. But, before then, let me briefly share with you why your period pains so much.
During the monthly cycle, different hormones are released upon the uterus—womb—inflammatory compounds like leukotrienes are also formed. The interaction between the hormones, however, forces a muscles contraction, that is, thickening of the muscular walls. Consequently, these contractions inhibit adequate blood flow the inability of the blood to flow effectively lead to menstrual pain and discomfort.
HOW CAN I REDUCE MENSTRUAL PAIN?
Feast on ginger. This herbal root plant has highly recommended by medical experts and researchers as super saver from menstrual cramps.
A study published in the journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine discovered that ginger is as effective as ibuprofen in relieving painful period.
The University of Maryland also recommends taking ginger three to four times daily to reduce menstrual cramp.
HOW IT WORKS
Ginger contains organic substances that inhibit the formation of inflammatory compounds. Its antioxidant nature reduces blood clot, strengthens the muscular walls enhancing easy passage of blood.
A survey conducted among young women, 18 and above indicated that women who feast on ginger tea during their monthly period experienced less pain than their counterparts who used pain relief and the likes. The most effective, more affordable home remedy for a painless period is ginger tea. So, I suggest you chew fresh ginger root or make yourself a cup of ginger tea next time you feel that intense painful period.
HOW DO I PREPARE HOMEMADE GINGER TEA
- Get ginger root, peel off the skin.
- Grate or pound the ginger to extract its yellowish juice.
- Mix thoroughly with hot water, cover for 10 to 15 minutes.
Filter the juice (water-ginger mixture) to get rid of ginger shafts. Drink the tea for 3 to four times. Drink it hot.
