According to several medical studies, the disorders are present only in the first days of menstruation but can be so strong and persistent as to heavily interfere with normal daily life.

I menstrual cramps or dysmenorrhea, using gynecological terminology, are cramps of uterine origin which can affect the woman with greater or lesser intensity during the menstrual period. According to several medical studies "the disorders are present only in the first days of menstruation but can be so strong and persistent as to heavily interfere with normal daily life".

La uterine wall o endometrium during the menstrual period produces considerable quantities of prostaglandins, which, in high concentrations, generate significant uterine contractions. This is the main cause of the pain during menstruation: cramps can radiate up to lower abdomen associated with anausea, headache, fatigue, diarrhea or constipation, pain in the breast, lower back, lower limbs and cold sensations.

More than 50% of women suffer from it and if the intensity and duration of pain varies by subject and by month, psychological and environmental factors exert a far from negligible influence on physical processes. The stress it is one of the main factors influencing pain to the point of causing amenorrhea or alterations in the cycle.

Among the natural remedies:

1- To relieve muscle pain and swelling from tension and menstrual fatigue try massaging the lower limbs and belly with oils or creams based on:

- capsaicin, alkaloid derived from hot peppers;

- based on menthol active ingredient contained in peppermint essential oil with refreshing and relaxing properties

- based on arnica : medicinal herb used in homeopathy for muscle pain and flu (and not only)

2- To increase the levels of magnesium, iron and Vitamin B6 intervene on the food profile by including in the diet more rice, bread, bananas, beans, nuts, meat and fish (salmon, cod, cod liver oil).



3- Do relaxation exercises, yoga and sports: when the pain is intense, massage the lower abdomen. A hot water bottle can help too: Grandma's ancient remedy is actually a real pain reliever. The heat produces a greater flow of blood to the uterus, promoting relaxation of the muscles and reducing spasms. On the market there are alternatives similar to the hot water bottle made with biodegradable materials: the Comfypac, hot pads filled with cherry stones or the Corn Bag Critters, bags of corn to be heated in the microwave.

4 - Acupuncture: Chinese medicine changes its approach to the problem of menstrual pain. The vision of the problem in oriental medicine starts from the consideration that at the basis of pain there is always an obstruction of the regular flow of energy (qi) and blood and therefore traces the problem to an alteration in the physiology of menstruation. Having said this, he intervenes on several fronts to regularize the problem. To correct nutritional imbalances, to acquire more adequate hygiene habits and a more positive psychic attitude, it is possible to intervene with acupuncture and phytotherapy sessions. Being a holistic view of the problem, we therefore recommend consulting a good expert who can understand both the physical and psychological causes in order to intervene in the best possible way.



It may not reduce menstrual pain but it will certainly make us happier remembering it Corman, for some years now, has launched the new Organ (Y) c di absorbent hypoallergenic, biodegradable and disposable 100% organic certified! Too bad, however, that there is still little demand on the market ... Could it still be the boss's fault?
