Home Natural Remedies For Menstrual Cramps

If you’re currently or have suffered from cramps in the past and are looking for some remedies to try out at home, here are a few home-based solutions.

Women can suffer from many conditions such as heartburn and indigestion.  However, menstrual cramps happen way more often.

The cramps usually occur due to irregular muscle contractions. The pain area is the lower abdomen, but the pain can extend to lower legs and lower back in some cases.

If you’re currently or have suffered from cramps in the past and are looking for some remedies to try out at home, here are a few home-based solutions:

1.  Exercise

It’s common to see women suffering from the condition boycott exercise and roll up in bed. While it’s no harm in resting during the cramp cycle, saying no to physical activity can actually cause more harm than good.

Moderate exercise is beneficial, and it can also help with the condition. This is because muscles become loose from exercise and blood circulation to the pelvic area increases.

The exercise that can be performed is simple brisk war for 30 minutes, 3 times a week.

2. Diet

The pain from menstrual cramps can be reduced by making changes to your diet. While you may already know the benefits of following a well-balanced diet consisting of fresh fruits and vegetables, eating the rights food during the cycle can help to prevent energy drainage.

You should also include foods that have an anti-inflammatory effect. Foods rich in Omega 3 such as salmon and nuts are great picks.

You can also reduce prostaglandin levels in the body, which is the main hormone that contributes to the condition, by taking one or two services (tbsp.) of flaxseed each day.

3. Swimming and taking a bath

While this is not a conventional solution, swimming can help with menstrual cramps by reducing the flow of menstrual.

Taking a hot shower can also reduce the flow of heavy menstrual, and the warmth will also make the lower abdomen muscles relax, reducing the pain from the cramps.

Warm water whether it’s in a swimming pool or a bath will have an overall calming effect on the condition.

4. Yoga

Some yoga poses such as Downward Facing Pose and Bridge Pose can help you to get relief from cramp pain.

For the Downward Facing Dog pose, you need to stand straight, put your hands on the legs, and bend forward. Now take your head down to the knees. In next movement, bring your hand to the floor in front of your feet and bend your right leg and take your left leg backwards. Slope your back down and bring the bottom up.

Downward Facing Dog and other similar poses will leave you relaxed.

These are some home remedies to menstrual cramps. However, it problems continue to persist, please visit your doctor.
