Menstrual Cramps Natural Remedies & Home Remedies


Diet as Home Remedy for Menstrual Cramps

The natural order is that women are healthy and their female functions and organs should not be a source of suffering.  Many women have talked about their troubles with menstruation for hundreds of years.  The levels of hormones are dependent primarily on diet.  For example, a diet high in fat will exaggerate the amounts of these hormones through a number of mechanisms.  Click here to read more about diet as home remedy for menstrual cramps.


Raspberry Leaf

A good natural remedy for menstrual cramps is to drink raspberry leaf tea several times a day starting 2 or 3 days prior to the menstrual period and continuing until the period ends.


Castor Oil

You can try a simple natural treatment of castor oil for your menstrual cramps.  Simply rub the castor oil on your stomach, and be sure to concentrate on your pelvis and the area above your uterus.  You can take this age old pain remedy a step further by soaking 3 squares of cotten flanel with castor oil and then putting this sandwich of flannel pieces on the area.  Put some clear plastic over it and put a hot water bottle on it at a warm not hot temperature.  Leave this for an hour or two.  This works very well for me and my cramps are usually gone quickly.

No Dairy

While there are lots of reasons to stop eating dairy products, getting rid of menstrual cramps was a great reason for me.  This is an easy home remedy that I found to really work to treat my menstrual cramps.  Not only has a lack of dairy in my diet helped to alleviate my cramps, but I'm losing weight, my acne has cleared and my hair is in such great shape, I don't need to use conditioner anymore.  Try to cut dairy from your diet. Humans are the only species on Earth that drinks milk as adults.  It's even stranger when you consider that weare also the only species that drinks milk from another species.  Milk wasn't designed to be consumed by adulthumans, so why are we drinking it?

Vitamin B12

For menstrual cramps or pain from ovulation, I stumbled upon this by accident.  I don’t really know why it works but it does for me.  Take vitamin B12.  Eat a little something when you take it.

Chinese Herbal Natural Cures

According to a clinical study at the University of Western Sydney, traditional Chinese remedies provided relief from painful menstrual cramps and were more effective than nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories and other drugs.  The use of  Chinese herbal remedies roughly doubled pain relief and relief from symptoms overall when compared with standard treatment with allopathic pharmaceuticals. The study was performed by Xiaoshu Zhu, M. Med., of the Chinese Medicine Program at the University of Western Sydney and published in The Cochrane Library, 2007 issue number 4.   The herbal remedies were also a greater improvement at providing relief for painful cramps than a hot water bottle or acupuncture.  Chinese herbal medicine is a great natural cure for menstrual cramps.



Brew a cup of hot tea and add some whisky (teaspoon) and a little fresh lemon juice.  When I was a teenager my mom would make this for me and it worked great!  I am still using it.


Black Tea & Herbs

To a cup of hot black tea, take a toothpick that has been dipped in mint oil and dip it in the tea.  Then put in a little ginger (freshly grated), nutmeg, cinnamon and a splash of lemon juice.  You can add a little honey for taste.  It does wonders as a menstrual cramps natural remedy and it even tastes good.

A good menstrual cramps home remedy is to do some sit ups.  It breaks loose the congestion in the uterus and the cramping goes down.  It works like a charm!


Cup of Hot Tea

Have a cup of hot tea.  Then lie down and relax as much as you can.  Visualize and try to feel the movement of fluid energy much like water through your uterus and out your vagina.  Relax every muscle in your body.


Calcium, Magnesium and Vitamin D

To get rid of menstrual cramps totally, take calcium supplements with magnesium and vitamin D.  Take this at breakfast and lunch and dinner.  You will also have reduced PMS, osteoporosis and you will sleep much better because of the magnesium.


Hot Bath with Epsom Salts

When you get the cramps, get in a hot bath, add a cup or two of Epsom salts and soak.  The hot water will relax your whole body including the muscles in the uterus.
