Hi...
I am desperate to find a homemade cure or at least a VERY effective homemade relief for my dysmenorrhea (VERY painful cramps, dizziness, and nausea at my first day of period). Got anything?

Just out of curiosity, why are you only seeking a homemade cure?

Well, Im sure I know what could work naturally.
Everyone here probably knows something though that could work.
Even though we are not allowed to discuss it here.
Don't know why though.

Aleve. A higher dose than recommended usually works, but I'm not telling you to take it.

Before my surgery I took the prescription strength stuff. I don't remember the dose.

Prescription strength Motrin (ibuprofen) was up to 800mg, but the OTC recommended dose is 400mg. It also works well for this problem.

BUT, I'm not telling you to take them.

We are not allowed to make suggestions on this topic?
That makes no sense? Not even by U2U?

You know with any natural remedy you must be cautious and not take it for very long. However, I have an old book with many recipes and here's one for problems in that regard.

St. Johnswort and European mistletoe:

Mix in equal parts. Parboil 1 tsp. in 1/2 cup water, then steep covered for 5 minutes. Take warm in mouthful doses.

Good luck.

If you haven't already you need to talk to your OB/GYN.
He/she should be able to tell you what works best for
most women. If you don't want prescription medication
be sure and tell your Dr. - tell him/her you are looking
for a homemade remedy. I had this condition when I was
younger - it always seemed to sneak up on me. My personal
suggestion would be to try to stay aware of the beginning
of the symptoms - take what your Dr recommends and
be good to yourself. Take naps, warm baths and try
to eliminate as much stress as possible. I feel for you -
its like being very sick once a month. I hope you find
something natural that works good for you.

I'm sorry to hear about your lady troubles. While I love and revere my generative organs, it is very easy to feel sometimes that they are a massive liability.

I recommend Dong Quai taken as a tea daily. The taste isn't everyone's, uh, cup of tea, and if you find you can't get it down, go for the tincture. Pill form = fail.

And when you've fallen to the communists, and are having a heavy flow, I can't speak highly enough of Shephard's Purse tincture. Take it sublingually to get it right into the bloodstream. It takes effect w/i minutes, and you will notice a welcome decrease in the bleeding.

And, of course, get your bits checked out regularly: dysmenorrhea can be an indicator of a more serious condition.

Some studies point to chemical estrogen,s widely found in our environment, as being the culprits. If I were you I would stop using or start eliminating what you can off the list below (link) to not only improve your overall health, but perhaps to improve your dysmenorrhea. It's worth a shot, isn't it?

Excerpt:


The human body is being bombarded with these harmful chemicals every day creating an over burdened liver, weakening the immune system and disrupting the delicate hormonal balance.

More and more evidence exposes xenoestrogens to be dangerous chemicals that need to be avoided whenever possible. Avoiding these synthetic chemicals and supporting the body through proper liver detoxification, hormone balancing and immune support, will work towards protecting our bodies.

Change you diet. Worked for me. Avoid anything with soy in it at all cost.

Of course, soy is packed full of estrogen.

Raspberry leaf tea, I swear by it.
The first day is usually awful for me but since I've been having a cup or two every day by the time Aunt Flo shows up she's less severe all round from cramps to mood and bleeding.

You can buy it loose, in caps or in tea bags. It's yummy.

If you are suggesting what I think you're suggesting, then I've never known a load of old bollocks like it almost suggested in my life.
Most of us don't look upon our menstrual week as an ailment or curse but unfortunately mother nature throws us a curve ball every month. What we most require is a way to balance the bad effects naturally, without drugs prescription or otherwise that just masks the problem.

Hmm... That is true that my father encouraged me to take milkshake with soy protein in order to have my protein at lunch... I will try stopping taking it.
