Top herbs to relieve menstrual cramps
The last thing any woman wants during the festive period is to feel nauseous, bloated and miserable owing to menstrual cramps.
Over half of women who suffer from period pains also suffer from additional symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, fatigue, lower backache, and headache. Women with severe cases may also become dizzy or even faint.
Lots of women find that herbal remedies can work to help relieve some of the symptoms that they suffer from at that time of the month.
Ginger is known for being an anti-inflammatory and pain relieving herb.
Many women believe that ginger relieves stomach troubles such as nausea and intense cramps - things that often accompany menstruation.
The University of Maryland medical centre recommends that women who feel under the weather should take ginger two to three times a day.
Ginger can be made into a tea, which many women find comforting.
Red raspberry leaves
It is thought that red raspberry leaves help control the uterus, meaning that if you are enduring a particularly heavy period (which can be painful), the red raspberry leaves can help control the flow.
You can take red raspberry leaves either through tea or tinctures several times per day.
However, if you have the opposite problem and your periods are particularly light, the herb angelica can coax the situation.
Evening primrose oil
Look out for herbs that contain the oil evening primrose, which is probably most famous for its cramp-relieving properties.
The oil is thought to block the inflammatory prostaglandins that cause menstrual cramps. It is also used for alleviating other ailments synonymous with menstruation - hot flashes, mood swings, and light-headedness.
Evening primrose oil is so beneficial owing to the fact that it is rich in omega-6 and other essential fatty acids, which are necessary for a healthy and happy tummy.
