Painful Period Relief: Natural Healthy Period Strategies

Looking for painful period relief strategies? Getting your period regularly is part of the natural hormonal cycle. Yet, unfortunately, it may involve pain and discomfort.

The good news is that there are a lot of things that you can do to gain relief from painful periods.

Personally, I’ve had really heavy and painful periods in the past that would often wipe me out completely for days! Yet, I turned things around and for years now I’ve been experiencing healthy and light periods.

Painful periods are common, so no wonder many women are looking for relief from painful periods.

If your menstruation is heavy and painful, let’s talk about healthy period strategies that can help you.

Now, when you have your period, your body releases chemical compounds that are involved in pain and inflammation and cause the uterus to contract.

When your uterus contracts, it helps your body push out the uterine lining, or your period blood, that has been formed during your cycle.

So what can you do to help your body?

  1. Lower your body fat percentage

The excess body fat that you may carry is biologically active.

It releases inflammatory molecules into your body on a consistent basis and can not only lead to serious health challenges, like type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure but also impacts your hormones and … your periods!

So getting your body fat percentage down is very important. 

        2. Remove unhealthy inflammatory foods

You need to drop the dairy products and animal meats that themselves contain animal hormones and even antibiotics.

There was a famous study carried out called the Harvard Nurses Study, which followed 18,000 women.

The nurses were trying to get pregnant for 8 years and as part of the study they noted down what foods they consumed.

What the study discovered was striking.

They discovered that by adding just a single serving of meat per day, their risk of infertility increased by 30%. So this meant that eating meat and in particular poultry appeared to negatively interfere with their ovulation.

In fact, a single serving of chicken (half a chicken breast) a day was associated with more than a 50% increase in infertility.

Here are some other foods that can cause inflammation:

  • Processed carbs like white bread, cookies and pastries
  • General highly processed foods that lack real nutrition and instead are stuffed full of chemical additives
  • Refined sugar and salt
  • Gluten
  • Fried food
  • Coffee
  • Alcohol
  • Saturated fat

All these undermine your health and so negatively impact your hormones. So remove them from your diet and instead replace them with whole plant foods.
