Hello, ladies! I’m back here talking about “Aunt Flow” again as requested by so many readers on our Facebook Fan Page (https://www.facebook.com/planbwellness). Lately, I’ve received some comments, emails and phone calls asking me how to deal with menstrual cramps and heavy bleeding during menstruation. This is kind of a huge discussion, so I hope I can contain the essence here and provide something useful for, at least, someone.
Also, one of our clients who is on our Fibroid Remedy Kit called this morning to report a case of bleeding without her knowing that what will stop the bleeding is right inside her Kit.
So without further ado… menstrual cramp, abnormal bleeding and pain remedies in 3, 2, 1…
What Are Menstrual Cramps And Why Do They Happen?
Menstrual cramps are caused by contractions in the uterus. During each menstrual period, if there is no sperm to fertilize the egg, the uterus contracts to expel its lining. This process is driven by the release of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins.
These uterine contractions cause much of the pain felt during menstrual cramps because the contractions inhibit blood flow to the lining of the uterus. If the uterus contracts too strongly, it can press against nearby blood vessels, cutting off the supply of oxygen to the muscle tissue of the uterus. Pain results when part of a muscle briefly loses its supply of oxygen.
Conventional Menstrual Cramp Remedies
- Pain Medication
Do a quick search for “menstrual cramp remedies” and you’ll find lots of articles telling you to take ibuprofen at the first sign of menstrual woes. You should try to avoid ibuprofen and most over-the-counter pain relief medications. They should be a last resort to dealing with pain, and preferably not a monthly addition to your diet.
Why? Well, without going into too much details, ibuprofen (and other over-the-counter instant pain reliefs) can cause bad side effects in your digestive system, nervous system, and cardiovascular system. Um… that’s a lot of systems! (And pretty essential ones at that).
- Hormonal Birth Control
Another common suggestion to dealing with intense menstrual cramps and heavy bleeding is to take birth control pills. This makes sense on some level since the latest research suggests that cramps and other menstrual issues start with hormonal imbalances. However, birth control pills are synthetic hormones that override the normal hypothalamus-pituitary-ovarian hormonal axis to prevent ovulation. In other words: very unnatural and they can lead to so many other reproductive system disorders.
Natural Remedies For Menstrual Cramps – Good To Know
If you take a look at the list of side effects that come with each package of birth control pills, you should feel “less safe” taking them. I know from experience dealing with people that birth control pills do not do the body any good. People do have some bad reactions that scare them off for good. But even without immediate reactions, long term use leaves individuals wide open for potentially major problems including infertility, cancer, stroke, blood clots, etc.
Read this quote from Dr Erika Schwartz, A renowned physician:
‘’The belief that birth control pills are safe comes from more than 40 years of continuous brainwashing by the pharmaceutical industry to both physicians and the public. We are victims of misinformation and dangerous practices.’’ – Dr. Erika Schwartz
This is why you should try to avoid “conventional” approaches to remedy menstrual cramps, bleeding and menstrual pains. They may take away the pain, but at what cost? I understand that those who suffer from intense menstrual cramps are desperate for relief. But please consider the long term effects on your health and reproduction before sipping down another pill.
