Here are a couple of solutions to make your time of month so much easier:
1. Cal-mag: Calcium will be good for your teeth and bones:strengthen them while, magnesium is good for the muscles; It helps to relax them which would be best for any kind of cramps. Take it for a month and double up to servings when you sense your menses and cramps are near. Can also take it the day before if pain not intense.
2. Walking : Helps to relieve cramps as well and it will good to get some exercise.
3.Naptime: taking a nap is good to relax the muscles to and gain some strength back(if your cramps are intense like mine were). I recommend laying on the stomach with a blanket in the that area(the blanket can be in whatever form that helps to relieve the pain).
4.Water: Drink plenty of water and i mean warm water to help stay hydrated and it relieves some of the pain.
5. Avoid food(s) that cause those cramps and try to identify what are you eating that is causing this problem.
6. Stay positive: even if you still have pain , stay positive and dig deeper into what is the problem because sometimes there could be more than one item that is hurting you.
Note: The cal- mag will work better if you buy the organic/natural one because it be absorbed into the body than the non-organic/unnatural.
For me, the cal-mag,water,nap and staying positive helped me in my quest to be pain-free . Before that I got used to being in pain which was years (for me that would be 5 years since im 16) before I started my quest and that time I would mostly hang on my bed taking a nap. A couple of years I started to think positive thinking I’d be pain-free which seemed like a dream/wish and take cal-mag for a month. Which led me to wonder what is causing me to be in pain, and discovering it was my favorites:crackers,sandwich bread and pancakes was saddening but because i wanted to be pain-free I stopped eating them most of the month and just eat them on occasion. I also started taking cal-mag the day before my menses which helped to remove most of the pain but since i wanted no pain I dug deeper and discovered that pads (the ones found in stores) were causing me the small pain so, last month(feb) i started to wear cloth pads aka RUMPs which gotten rid of that remainer pain .
Have a good day!
