When we changed out eating habits as a family I prayed to the Lord asking him to help me with this because I never liked putting drugs in my body and I really want to stop. I researched painful menstruation and alternative remedies for it. To God be the glory, gradually the pain lessened and it's to the point where I can carry on a normal conversation and not take painkillers.
These are the herbs that I use for painful menstruation:
Back to Eden has this to say:
Constipation is the one common cause of painful menstruation. Relieve the bowels and colon with high enemas. Keep the body warm at all times, using a hot water bottle at night, if necessary. Keep off the feet as much as possible, especially the first day. A hot sitz bath or hot fomentation to the spine and abdomen often afford relief at once. Fomentations will always relieve the pain. Give as long as necessary and repeat.
Other herbs recommended in The Little Herb Encyclopedia:
Cramp Bark(for cramps)
Queen of the Meadow
Wild Yam(for cramps)
Hope this was helpful. If there's anything that you do that works beside these, feel free to share in the comments.
