4 Homemade Remedies for Menstrual Cramps

Gabriela Alvarado

While menstrual cramps are no big deal for some girls and can even go unnoticed, unfortunately other girls must deal with them when they come most inconveniently.

If your Quinceanera date coincides with your menstrual period, then you must prepare yourself with a fast and effective solution.

Take note of the following fast and effective homemade remedies for menstrual cramps:

• Place a hot towel on your lower abdomen to ease the cramps. Besides the soothing feeling, this will block nerve signals of pain to your brain.

• Drink hot tea will raise your inner body temperature. For this, we recommend non-caffeinated drinks such as soup, broth, chamomile or cinnamon tea.

• Stretching and exercise can help you release endorphins which function as natural antibiotics.

• Foods and supplements rich in Vitamin B, calcium, magnesium, and zinc can help reduce pain, swelling, and other symptoms of menstruation.

To avoid future menstrual cramps we recommend:

Eating foods rich in calcium such as fresh fruit and vegetables. Keep salty foods to a minimum, especially if you are experiencing swelling, since salt retains liquids.

• Drink plenty of water in order to release toxins.

• Avoid food that is high in saturated fat.

• Avoid drinking coffee, since it slows down calcium absorption.

Hope these tips help out to ease your pain, chica!
