Like most women, I have had to endure the pain accompanied by that monthly friend-my period. For me, I experienced a lot of back pain, the usual cramps, and even upper leg and lower back pain. These symptoms afflicted me every month for years until I heard of a simple natural remedy that does wonders and kicks that pain to the curb! And that superhero-I mean, remedy-is Raspberry tea.
Why Raspberry Tea??
Raspberry Tea has long been used by natural doctors and midwives to assist in labor and delivery. So what does raspberry tea do, and why are they so important in getting rid of period pain? Well, a meta-analysis (a collection of studies) from 1941 to 2106 found that certain chemicals (flavonoids) work on the smooth muscles of the uterus. According to the Mayo Clinic, cramps occur during your period because the smooth muscles of the uterus is shedding its lining, leading to pain. Drinking raspberry tea during and even before your period comes causes those contractions to cease. When I drink raspberry tea during my period, I experience the following symptoms:
- NO back pain
- NO leg pain
- NO cramps
My period literally comes and goes without wreaking any havoc. Sometimes it ends sooner than usual.
