@StefLovesJamie:  I saw were you also said you do not exercise during your period. I use to do the same thing but it made my periods get worse.

I do a lot more cardiovascular exercise now than I ever have before. My body fat percentage is also lower than it’s ever been. I increased my muscle mass but lost fat by lifting weight and eatting more protein. This has helped me tremendously. It’s very important for you to get as much cardio as possible in the week before your period. It will help your period to be lighter and more tolerable. Go during your period if you can stand it. Even brisk walking for 20 minutes is better than nothing.

@StefLovesJamie:  I always drink chamomile tea… thinking about it I have no idea if it actually works or if it has a placebo effect, but my grandma used to say it’s good when you’re in your period.

@StefLovesJamie:  How much do you exercise when you’re not on your period? This is very important. It’s almost a preventive measure as opposed to a reactive one. I am anemic and sometimes won’t go if I have to change my tampon every 30 minutes. But my pain is tolerable these days.

Chaste tree berry. Also known as Vitex. But you should see a naturopath that specializes in women’s health.

@StefLovesJamie:Organic Blackstrap Molasses is an incredible supplement to any woman’s diet due to its incredible ability to greatly improve cramps and other menstrual symptoms.

Just mix 1 Teaspoon in warm water and drink daily

You will notice that cramps slowly get better, i used to take strong medication for endo, now i dont take anything at all.

 

(Please not that it took a year of this for all pain associated with periods to dissapear) Ive got all my sisters and cousins on to this because they know how i physically couldnt cope with the severe pain, now they see i am 100%.. I dont know why more people dont talk about this

I was told by a naturopath to use lavendar essential oil on my stomach, but I haven’t tried it yet because my cramps improved a lot when I started taking thyroid medication.
