Natural remedy for menstrual cramps?

I want to stop taking over the counter pain medication for my menstrual cramps. Is there a natural alternative? I've also thought about ways to have mental power over the pain. Is there a way to do that?

I would recommend energy work with a focus on energizing the lower chakras

Try this...

All this talk of religion, but it's how you live your life that is the all-important thing.
If you set out each day to do all the goodness and kindness that you can, and to do no harm to man or beast, then you are walking the highest path.
And when your time is up, if you can leave the earth a better place than you found it, then yours will have been a life well lived.

I found a couple different things that might help. One is called cramp bark, it comes from europe. Also catnip or peppermint tea can help ease the cramps. Hope it helps.

I find that putting some tuna in my diet helps - like a tuna casserole or just a sandwich. Potassium can help with muscle cramps so it might be worth it to increase the number of bananas you eat. Sitting down with a hot water bottle and a book also helps me.

StarSkye... Evening primrose oil is an herbal medicine for women's issues, among other things. It needs to be taken every day, not just when there is cramping.

Here's a good article about it: http://www.herbwisdom.com/herb-evening-primrose.html

Also... oddly enough, when I used to take Ibuprofen for cramps my other pms symtoms decreased too.

A good healthy diet is important, as toxins will find their way out of a weak area such as menstruation, also i have found that evening primrose oil capsules help, i had a woman come to me once that had endometriosis, she couldn't get pregnant, so i put her on a fruit cleansing diet and evening primrose capsules in about two months she got pregnant. This is when i was a practicing naturopathy, all the best to you.

I've had bad cramps for a long time. Usually they start in the middle of the night which is annoying! lol. When they're during the day I used a hot pack on my stomach and that helped. (I put white rice in a sock and warmed it up, but you can also use a cup of tea or bowl of soup there and enjoy it too.)

Last month I didn't have any cramping at all. I think it's because I was in the sun so much the week leading up to it. I've heard that sun is a natural anti-inflammatory so that would make sense. Also last year I switched to cloth pads and a diva cup because I heard that the chemicals in unnatural pads/tampons can worsten cramping and your period.

And I agree with psychocoslice pain/illness is a sign of nutritional deficiency. Making sure you're eating healthy and getting exercise will help too in every area of your life. Course I thought I was eating healthy, but a week ago I found out I was gluten intolerant, so I wasn't eating healthy for me.

I used to have a lot of cramping too until I started taking flaxeed and flaxeed oil. I'm not sure if it's the flaxeed or an increase in exercise that did it for me.

On a similar subject, has anyone tried Lady's Mantle, Sage, and Shepard's Purse herbal teas to stop heavy menstral bleeding? I do take Lysteda as needed but I would like to avoid it if possible.
