Natural Remedies


• Yogurt or Calcium/Magnesium . Eat two cups of yogurt a day in the days or week leading up to your period and you should not be moody or have cramps when your monthly period comes. If you don’t like yogurt, take a calcium/magnesium supplement. Continue during the time of your menstrual period. Calcium and magnesium deficiencies may be the cause of PMS or PMS-like symptoms. With either one, you should see a big difference in your cramps and your attitude.
Inositol . May relieve PMS symptoms and aids in nerve impulse transmission and helps prevent estrogen-related cancer.

• Acidophilus. Relieves symptoms by breaking down metabolites of estrogen.

Flaxseed Oil and Primrose Oil . These oils supply gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid that is important in relieving symptoms and aiding proper glandular function.

Vitamin B Complex and B12 . Crucial in the relief of stress and is essential for proper functioning of the adrenal gland.

• Pumpkin Seeds. Eat pumpkin seeds about a week before your menstrual period (a handful–1/4 of a cup a day) and your cramps should be non-existent. Also eat them as a snack during the period.

• Hot water and ginger. Boil the water and stir in two to three tablespoons of ginger and drink it up. You should feel better in 30-45 minutes.

• Dill pickle juice. Drink a half cup when you feel a cramp coming or as soon as it strikes. One heaping teaspoon of salt in water (1 to 2 to one glass) may also do the trick if you have no pickle juice handy.

• Oregano and water. Take three tablespoons of essential oil of oregano and mix with one liter of water, then bring to boiling and continue to boil for five minutes. Strain and drink as tea. You should feel better soon and continue to feel well for an entire day. Caution. Do not use ‘fragrance oil’, which is chemically manufactured.
