Home Remedies and Cures for Heavy Menstrual Bleeding/Cramps

Some women have abnormally heavy menstrual bleeding accompanied by painful clotting and cramping. There’s a risk of anemia and one may feel weak, tired or sick for several days at a time every month. However, there are natural home remedies and cures to take to help this condition.

Mainstream doctors don’t have many effective ways to treat the problem. There are generally three options that they recommend, birth control pills, a procedure called a “D & C” or a hysterectomy. None of these are natural home remedies or very good choices.

There is a natural treatment that most mainstream doctors just don’t know about. Recommended by Jonathan V. Wright, M.D., take 50,000 units of vitamin A (not beta-carotene) daily and within one to two months a normal bleeding pattern should return.

Take 50,000 units of vitamin A daily for at least 30 days, then reduce the amount to 15,000 to 25,000 units daily to prevent recurrence. Just think how much easier, cheaper and safer this natural cure would be.

Be sure to have a gynecologist check for fibroids and/or other structural or functional abnormality before trying any treatment. As long as your doctor finds no physical problem causing the heavy menstrual bleeding, then natural home remedies and cures is definitely the way to go.

Ease Menstrual Cramps

If you have painful monthly menstrual cramps, there is a natural way to help. You may need to change your diet. There are certain foods to avoid: dairy products, fats, salt, alcohol, sugar and caffeine. All of these can make cramping more severe.

Natural home remedies and cures you can take to help relieve the cramps are taking magnesium and vitamin B6 and D3 (omega-3 fatty acids). Take these continuously for eventual relief.

These same home remedies and cures should also ease ovulation pain (mittleschmerz) which happens during the middle of the monthly cycle before your period. Many women suffer from that pain even more than from the bleeding time of their cycle.

Natural home remedies and cures are amazingly helpful for women problems as well as most other maladies. Watch for help on irregular periods and PMS in my next article.
