We are sure that the first thing you think of when you hear the word “cycle” – is unbearable pain. This happens to every woman in the world. However, lying the whole day and taking analgesics is not the only way to get rid of the pain…
Discover all the ways you can alleviate or even completely get rid of the pain!
- Drink more water
Water will help you avoid bloating during the cycle. Tepid and hot water will also accelerate blood circulation and alleviate cramps and muscle pain. Drink between 8-10 glasses of water.
- Enter enough calcium
Eat food rich in calcium. Calcium helps to relieve stomach cramps.
- Eat healthy food
Avoid fast food and instead, eat more green vegetables, fruit, fish, eggs, cinnamon and ginger. Avoid artificial sugar and eat food rich in natural sugars, such as, for example, strawberries.
- Avoid food that cause flatulence
Avoid oily food and grains, as well as carbonated beverages.
- Reduce intake of caffeine
This will make muscles more relaxed, and the cramps will be less painful. Tea is a much better option than coffee, and the best would be to drink tea which does not contain caffeine, such as ginger tea. Caffeine also leads to dehydration, your body will retain more water and you will be more bloated.
- Take enough vitamin D
Vitamin D affects the reduction of pain in the stomach. You can enter it in pill form, as a nutritional supplement, but also through food such as salmon, tuna, orange juice, soy milk, cereals, cheese…
- Do light exercise
- Warm up the stomach
Pour hot water in a plastic bottle or thermos and hold it in your stomach – we guarantee that it will reduce the pain for a few minutes!
- Take a shower with warm water
This will reduce the pain and help you relax.
