Painful Periods: Natural Remedies

At Lhamo, we are all about taking the natural way over the harsh chemicals. Period pain is something that can be very difficult to deal with โ€“ from cramps that make you curl up in bed to backpain that makes it tough to stand, we go through a lot during that week of the month! Thankfully, there are many herbal remedies that have been shown to help reduce menstrual cramps and provide a feeling of comfort. Here are a few of them.

Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

This tea is very mild in taste but it does not taste like raspberries. It can help make your uterus stronger, which has been said to help against cramps. However, also be aware that some people have reported that their cramps got worse as the tea has been reported to stimulate contractions.


Ginger Tea

Ginger tea, on the other hand, has been proven to help against menstrual cramps. In fact, research has shown that it is anti-inflammatory and offers pain-relieving properties that are especially helpful with pain, bloating, and more. Studies have shown that taking ginger tea within the first three or four days of your period can significantly help reduce pain.


Peppermint Tea

Peppermint offers a cooling sensation โ€“ thatโ€™s why we also use it in our pads! Peppermint offers many benefits, including the ability to reduce the effects of irritable bowel syndrome because it helps reduce spasms in your muscles, which are also the cause of menstrual cramps.


Cinnamon Tea

This tea has been shown to help reduce inflammation. This is a common occurrence during menstruation, especially as inflammation is most present when you are bloated.
There are many more to try out! From green tea to oolong types of tea, try different ones out to find out what helps you feel your best.
