Do you think that menstrual pains and cramps are absolutely normal? Is the pain becoming more of a routine every month? If yes, then you need to be on alert.
Bearing up with pain is not the way out. A little pain at the onset of the cycle is normal, but if it continues along with the dizziness and fatigue during the period, it is time for you to try these natural things to have healthy and pain-free menstrual cycles.
What Happens During the Menstrual Periods?
Your Body Detoxifies it Naturally!
During the menstrual period, the uterus contracts and tries to push and flush out its broken lining out of the body. During the process a hormone like chemical called prostaglandins is released. High amount of prostaglandins causes the cramps and pain. This is the body’s natural way to detox itself. So, do not make your efforts to detoxify your body during this time.
How to Get Relieved Naturally?
Avoid Drinking Tap Water:
Tap water should be completely avoided because it contains a high level of xenoestrogen which duplicates the action of naturally produced female hormone estrogen, resulting in hormonal imbalance and causes irregular cycles, utter pain, cramps etc.
Indulge in Aerobics and Take Iron Rich Food:
Try exercising more during this time to increase the blood flow to the reproductive organs. When your body loses the high amount of blood, so you should be taking care of your diet. Take whole grains, fruits and leafy veggies. Pomegranate, apples and spinach have a rich iron content.
Limit the Intake of Dairy Products:
Do not think that drinking milk or having yoghurt, cheese, etc. will be healthy during the periods. They are not. You should check the intake of these dairy products as they tend to increase the production of prostaglandins.
Reduce the Intake of Salt:
Taking more salt during this time, can make the symptoms worse. So, it is better to cut down on its consumption. Taking B-complex and Vitamin B6 is healthy, but make sure to not exceed the dose beyond 100mg. Also, never try to detoxify your bodies during menstrual periods.
Cut Down on Caffeine, Nicotine and Alcohol:
These all things should be strictly avoided during the periods to make them healthy and pain-free. Consumption of alcohol, caffeine and nicotine, etc. result in hormonal imbalance and when there is hampered production of female hormones like progesterone and estrogen you are likely to suffer from the pains and cramps.
