Best 3 Teas for Menstrual Pain
Some of the symptoms that have been putting me down during my periods are pain, headaches, diarrhea, and bloating. Like 70% of women, my menstrual cramps were severe and sometimes debilitating.
One gynecologist told me that it’s normal to have period cramps because uterine muscles are contracting to shed the lining. However, this pain was so severe to the point of interfering with my everyday life, keeping me in bed for days.
As a result, I turned to over-the-counter medications to get relief from these pains so that I wouldn’t have to take pharmaceutical pills that had worse side effects. But I came to learn that these OTC medications have adverse effects in the long run too like liver damage and stomach ulcers.
So I switched to natural pain remedies such as herbal supplements and sipping on some delicious yet beneficial herbal teas.
The good news always being a Guinea pig for nature is that tea naturally alleviated my period cramps and did away with nausea, headaches, bloating, and cramps without leaving any side effects.
