The Monthly Monster

Every month, you dread your period and all of the awful symptoms that come along with it, especially those heart-wrenching, stomach-churning, pain-inducing menstrual cramps. Each month, as your uterus sheds its natural lining, it contracts, and the blood vessels that supply the uterus become constricted. This reduces blood flow and ultimately resulting in pain. Before you run off to your local pharmacy to purchase over-the-counter pain-relief medications, try these natural remedies instead or in supplement with medication.


    Applying heat to your lower stomach will help relax your muscles. Your blood vessels will begin to open and get your blood flowing, slowly eradicating the painful cramps. Heating pads or a hot bath can do wonders.

    Various Herbal Teas

      A variety of different teas can be made to reduce cramps. Studies have shown that the following teas might have pain-relieving properties.
        • Red raspberry leaf tea
        • Chamomile tea
        • Ginger tea
        • Cinnamon tea 

      Avoid Caffeine

        Coffee can make your blood vessels constrict and tighten even more, causing more pain and cramps. Take a break from the coffee and drink some tea instead!


          Any type of physical activity can help alleviate the pain caused by cramps. In general, studies show that the better shape you’re in and the more physically active you are, the less likely you are to suffer from menstrual cramps. 

          Stay Hydrated

            Drink water and keep your body hydrated! Hot water is better for cramps since the heat will help relax your muscles.
            Hopefully you can relieve some of your menstrual pain with these natural, home remedies!
