4 Home Remedies for Menstrual Cramps


It’s that time of the month again when a woman’s cycle comes. Question is, is her period a good friend with cleansing properties or a nemesis which brings in menstrual cramps? Lucky are those who can still sleep soundly while on their periods but for three out of four women experiencing menstrual cramps, the struggle is indeed real!

What causes Menstrual Cramps?

Menstrual Cramps - Revicore

Menstrual Cramps or Dysmennorhea are usually caused by the contraction of the uterus during a woman’s cycle. This is a throbbing pain which usually radiates even to a woman’s lower back and thighs. In some cases, pain comes when there is heavy blood flow, after giving birth to a woman’s first child or when there is an overproduction of prostaglandins or hormones made from sites where tissue damages are present and inflamed.

Other causes of menstrual cramps may be due to:

  • Endometriosis – happens when the tissues lining your uterus are implanted outside your uterus, for instance, in the fallopian tube.
  • Uterine Fibroids – pertains to the growth of non-cancerous lumps in the uterus walls.
  • Adenomyosis – when the tissue lining of your uterus grows into the muscular walls.
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease – happens when the female reproductive organ is infected by sexually transmitted bacteria
  • Cervical Stenosis – happens usually in women with a small opening in the cervix. A small cervix opening gives women the experience of an increase of pressure within the uterus and thus, causing cramps.

While these menstrual cramps do not necessarily or often cause medical complications, experiencing such gives much burden to women as it interferes with the activities — both physical and mental, a woman does in a day.

What Home Remedies can I do to relieve menstrual cramps?


Exercise - Revicore

Yes, an exercise could be a good remedy for menstrual cramps even when you can barely move! By doing physical exercises, your body is able to release endorphins which best counteracts prostaglandins, and thus reducing cramps. It does not have to be huge movements! You can even stick with brisk walking.

Apply Heat to Abdomen and/or lower back

Apply Heat - Revicore

A study from BMC Women’s Health has concluded that using heat patches poses the same healing effect as that of ibuprofen for dysmenorrhea. If heat patches are to no avail, you may opt to take a warm bath or use a hot towel.

Drink Chamomile Tea

Drink Chamomile Tea - Revicore

A study from American Chemical Society’s Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry found that drinking chamomile tea can help relieve various health ailments including menstrual cramps. In the study, there is a significant increase in hippurate in the urine samples. Hippurate is a natural anti-inflammatory drug that decreases prostaglandin production.

Water therapy

Water has its own natural healing capacity. This alone would explain how drinking lots of it can be a remedy for dysmenorrhea as it eases belly bloating. To make water consumption more palatable, consider adding some mint or lemon wedge to your glass.

Revicore Privita


The hormones are the most delicate balance system of our bodies, and optimal hormone balance is critical to our physical and emotional wellbeing. Estrogen dominance is extremely common among both women and men in industrialized nations. A normal part of the ageing process, it involves a strong influence from estrogen and/or increased estrogen activity due to the production of estrogen metabolites. Contributing factors include stress, high-fat diet, smoking, environmental estrogens, and environmental toxicity.
