14 Home Remedies for Menstrual Cramps

These 14 home remedies for menstrual cramps can help reduce throbbing or cramping pains in the lower abdomen just before and during their menstrual periods. Many women also experience  headache, nausea, vomiting, irritability, nervousness, depression, fatigue, constipation or diarrhea. Cramps cause pain because it is the body releasing the lining of the uterus.

Here are some bonus suggestions besides what is listed in the article.

Drink plenty of water to increase blood flow and avoid becoming dehydrated. Grate fresh ginger (1 teaspoon) and steeped in hot water for five minutes, strain then add (1/8 teaspoon) Cinnamon and drink to soothe menstrual cramps.

The yoga exercise “Cat Pose” is extremely helpful in reducing menstrual cramps, personally I have used it for over 15 years in times of distress.   I also find that if I get on all four like the first picture in the series then stretch my hands far forward and placing my forehead to the floor stretches my back.  I recommend doing the yoga stretches for ten to fifteen minutes.
