Is Your Period the Pits? Get Real Relief with This

I love finding and using natural remedies instead of pharmaceuticals and OTC meds for everything from colds and flus to ear infections and warts. Some of my favorite natural remedies are homemade saline wash, essential oils, and even activated charcoal.

Today, Kristin of Nature Had it First is sharing with us a fabulous natural remedy for Menstrual Cramps and Heavy Bleeding.

This post came from a reader’s experience telling us that she uses turmeric to control excessive blood flow during menstruation.

I too notice that when I am not being diligent about drinking medicinal teas and taking herbs, my period can be very short and heavy; leaving me exhausted, anemic, and very pale.

We love turmeric for so many things, controlling inflammation, helping treat cancers, liver disorders, GI issues and much more, but I hadn’t ever used it to help with menstrual issues.

When I began researching turmeric, it talked mostly about its blood thinning properties and its ability to break up blood clots, so I was still unsure how it could be of benefit to reduce and slow excessive blood flow during menstruation. Then I read that it is traditionally used to stop blood flow during early pregnancy.
