Home Remedies for Relief of PMS & Menstrual Cramps
For many years, I would treat any pain that came my way with a big dose of prescription or over-the-counter medications. Muscle pain. Headaches. PMS. Menstrual Cramps. If it caused me discomfort, out came the pills. (I’m so sorry, liver.)
Now, I take a more natural approach. I no longer run for the Ibuprofen when I get a headache. Muscle cramps are treated with Epsom salt and essential oils. And PMS and cramps? Those get treated (and even better, prevented) naturally, too.
In addition to being mindful of what I eat (I have far fewer symptoms when I avoid chemically-laden processed food), I drink an herbal tea that helps alleviate, and even prevent cramps. The tea also helps me with my mood, which would otherwise be all over the place.
