Wife With Heavy Menstrual Cramps
Feb. 11, 2015
My wife experiences heavy menstrual cycles and painful cramps every month and usually have to take one or two days off from work during this time. She also craves chocolate during this time. Is there anything that she can do naturally to help ease the cramps and pain and slow down the bleeding? Heavy Cramps, New York
Dear Heavy Cramps:
First of all you need to understand that many young girls and women also experiences heavy menstrual cramps along with heavy bleeding which is caused by their diets, especially eating GMO foods (processed foods). The foods have no nutritional value and also causes infertility in women and sterility in men.
Until she goes naturally and start eating foods in as natural forms as possible, she will continue to experience these symptoms which can lead to fatigue, anemia, shortness of breath and other health issues including cancer.
Periods are considered heavy if there is enough blood to soak a pad or tampon every hour for several consecutive hours. Other symptoms could include nighttime bleeding that requires getting up to change pads or tampons, passing large blood clots during menstruation, and a period that last longer than 7 days.
If she is craving chocolate, it's because she is really craving magnesium so she needs to take a Multivitamin daily for women which contains calcium, magnesium and Vitamin D and eat foods containing magnesium.
Sitting in a warm bath or using a hot water bottle can help ease menstrual cramps, but be careful taking any over-the-counter pain medications which can cause damage to the liver. Regular exercise and getting plenty of rest will also help but it’s imperative that she eats a natural diet.
