Menstrual cramps are real monsters in women’s lives. Despite being something common and bothering a large part of the female public, there are ways to combat the problem.

But it is important to emphasize that when colic begins to interfere with your quality of life, preventing you from working, walking and performing normal activities in daily life, it is no longer considered normal.

Cramps that fall out of the normal range can be signs of problems such as endometriosis or even a cyst in the uterus.

If the pain does not go away with the treatments, seek help from a professional who can closely assess your case.

Symptoms of colic vary with each organism. Most women feel strong twinges in the uterus, while others experience severe back and leg pain, nausea, diarrhea, tiredness, headache, dizziness, vomiting and even fainting.

To help relieve menstrual cramps, naturopathic herbalist André Resende has prepared a recipe for a beneficial tea that controls pain.
