Tips to overcome Menstrual Cramps

Menstrual cramps - suffer no more!!!!!

To reduce the intensity of menstrual symptoms, you can change your diet:

  • Less sugar, and slightly more protein.
  • Diuretic foods such as eggplant, cucumbers and parsley can help diminish water retention.

  • Calcium supplements (1 gram per day) and magnesium (500 milligrams) can help reduce anxiety  (always take both).
  •  Vitamin B-6 (not more than 50 milligrams per day) can alleviate symptoms of anxiety and tension.
  • Vitamins E and C also help reduce the intensity of cramps.
  •  Aspirin has a mildly soothing effect.
  • And once again you can turn to plants to relieve your pains:
      •  ANGELICA in infusion: 3 1/2 tablespoons of root per quart of water.
      • MATRIX (derived from the Latin for womb): 2 teaspoons of flowers per quart of water.
