All Fruit Diet

There are lots of different problems that can arise with monthly menstruation.  These problems are typically systemic, meaning that you have to treat your body's system in its entirety, instead of looking to treat individual symptoms.  Treat your entire system by undertaking an overhaul of your diet.  You should first start by going on an all-fruit diet that should last about five days.  If you are currently underweight when starting the all-fruit diet, try adding a glass of milk to each meal.  By changing your diet and eating all fruit, you are essentially “re-setting” your body and allowing your body to grow accustomed to healthy eating.

Fennel Seeds

Simply take one teaspoon of fennel seeds, and crush thoroughly.  The best way to crush them would be with a pestle and mortar.  Once the seeds are fully crushed, add them to a cup of boiling water.  Allow the water and seeds to steep for about five minutes.  Strain the seeds and drink the remainder while it is still hot.

Fish Oil

Try fish oil.  This is a wonderful antispasmodic.  A few days before your period starts, take a little more than the recommended dose, and continue to take the fish oil until your cramps have subsided.  While this won't completely cure your cramps, it will greatly reduce the amount of pain you'll be in.  During your period, be sure that you avoid eating lots of sugar and salt, as these foods will just make your pain worse.  If you're like me, you'll crave sugary and salty foods during your period, but try to resist if you want your cramps to go away.

Salt can actually help your body produce blood, and this is especially helpful as an easy home remedy during menstruation.  Remember that salt can make cramps worse, so avoid this treatment if you suffer from cramps during your monthly period.
