Since ancient times, folk medicine helps women whenever they have menstrual pain or unpleasant symptoms of PMS.
In this article, we bring you the most effective and also old recipe which relieves menstrual pain better than pills.
Periods existed long before the pharmacy, where we can get painkillers 24 hours a day.
The survey shows that almost 50 percent of women have menstrual pain (dysmenorrhea or menstrual cramps) during menstruation.
10 percent of women cannot perform normal daily activities because they experience severe menstrual pain.
While painkillers solve this problem within half an hour, natural remedies are not so fast.
However, natural remedies can be equally effective and much healthier, with no effects on the stomach and on the women`s body.
One of the natural oldest recipes against unpleasant menstrual pain, and some other unpleasant health issues such as poor circulation, arthritis, and indigestion, is the remedy with castor oil.
People use castor oil against pain and inflammation even in ancient Egypt and Greece.
You can activate castor oil if you combine with the heat and then it penetrates through the skin.
On that way, castor oil relaxes nerves and muscles and thus reduces spasms and pain.
Castor oil wraps against menstrual pain
You will need:
– Hot water bottle
– Thinner towel or cotton cloth
-1. Rub castor oil on your lower back (belly and ovaries area) and put the thicker layer.
-2. Lie on your belly and cover lower back with a thin towel or cotton cloth.
-3. Put warm water bottle on a towel and leave on for 15 to 20 minutes.
-4. Remove the water bottle from the back and, if necessary, leave a towel so the skin will absorb almost all the oil.
-5. The wrap will alleviate PMS symptoms such as cramps and pain in the abdomen and lower back.
– Compress place exclusively on the back, because the heat from the hot water bottles may be too aggressive for the ovaries.
– You can also put castor oil on the stomach, but then warm the stomach only with a towel and a blanket (no with hot water bottles) and leave on for 30 to 45 minutes.
– If case you decide to put a hot water bottle on your stomach then it needs to be just pleasantly warm.
With this old remedy, you will stop use unnecessary pills.
