1. Diet: Stick with foods that can help you cleanse and detox your insides, as well as restore hormonal balance. Instead of giving in to the chocolate temptation, having excessive carbs, and having tons of sugar, have tons of water, fruits, veggies and simple salads.
2. Multi-Vitamins: Try to take them daily! Zinc, calcium and vitamin B’s are known to help reduce cramping, bloating, and fatigue.
3. Light Exercise: Small stretches and light exercise will definitely help whatever pain you already have subside. Little movements will help relieve pressure.
4. Heating Pad: Heat will help the spasming and contracting of your lower abdominals or back. If this doesn’t help, immerse yourself in a hot, relaxing bath!
5. Tea: Chamomile, lavender, and jasmine teas help calm and relax you physically as well as mentally and emotionally. Add in a little bit of honey for an added, natural pain reliever.
6. Sleep: If you’re tired out from the physical and emotional strain of your period, then sleep! It helps regain strength, chemical balance, and helps take you away from the pain for awhile.
7. Go Natural: There are tons of all natural remedies for cramp relief. Try the naturalistic approach with vitamins and nutrients, such as omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, and acupressure, just to name a few.
