  • Topical Use

However, combing hot oil massage with the benefits of aromatherapy is the best thing you can do for yourself during menstrual pain! The aroma of essential oils travels through the olfactory nerve directly to the brain. It influences the emotional center of the brain – the Amygdala.

meta-analysis confirmed that aromatherapy has superior effects for pain relief for menstrual cramps compared to placebo therapy. [2]

According to John Hopkins Medicine, essential oil therapy is also good for anxiety, depression, nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, and loss of appetite. Here are some essential oils that you can use for massage or aromatherapy.

Yoga 

Have you ever wondered why yoga is the first-line treatment for all mental and physical problems?

According to American Osteopathic Association, the relaxation techniques used in yoga help to lower chronic pain such as lower back pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, depression, anxiety, and whatnot. Hence, Yoga has a long list of benefits for both mental and physical health.

Similarly, performing yoga every day can be your ticket to a pain-free menstrual cycle. The best thing about yoga is that there are loads of different types of yoga to fit the need of every individual on Earth.

An experiment conducted on 40 randomly selected undergraduate nursing students proved that menstrual pain intensity and menstrual distress reduced significantly in the experimental group that participated in a 60-minutes yoga program once a week for 12 weeks. [3]

Vitamin and Mineral Therapy:

How can we forget a healthy diet when talking about menstrual pain remedies that can reduce your symptoms in the long term rather than the short term?

Now you can start vitamin and mineral therapy in two ways. The first and best way is to add more fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, whole grains, dairy, and proteins into your diet. In short, eat everything! The other way is to take vitamin and mineral supplements.

But if, regardless of eating everything, you still don’t feel any better, then get up and go take a look at your pantry and refrigerator.

Are they filled with packaged and processed foods with minimal nutrients? Or are they filled with fresh and minimally processed foods packed with nutrients?

The quality of your diet plays a major role in your body’s reaction to any ailment. Whether you want to relieve menstrual pain or you want to fix your gut, heart, liver, kidneys, and everything in between – a clean and fresh diet is the best way to go!
