Some say it’s ‘normal’ to experience pain every month.  I tend to view pain as the body’s way of telling us something is out of whack.  The body is always attempting to come back in to balance but sometimes needs a little help and in cases of period pain, the body is crying out for help.  Some also experience migraines and nausea with or without vomiting as well as pain. Some women experience pain from their first period (so not fair) others after a period of major stress, hormonal imbalances or even some medications that can disrupt our hormonal system.

Some explanations for this pain can be; endometriosis, poly cystic ovarian syndrome or fibroids, all of which can be eased with the help of homeopathy, nutrition and herbs.  These are all ‘Western Diseases’ so there may be some lifestyle changes that can also help here too.  The pain can however, have no identifiable underlying organic cause.  If you have taken the Contraceptive pill or steroids even if it was many years ago, this could be still disrupting your hormones.  The good news is, we can clear them out of your system.

If menstrual pain is something you suffer, you may want to look at ways we can help you resolve this pain.  Yep, there are many remedies that can help you with this.  Homeopathic remedies that have been traditionally used for a couple of hundred years for this such as; Magnesium phos, Sepia, Lachesis, Pulsatilla or Lycopodium.  These are some more common remedies, however, there are literally hundreds of remedies that can help with period pain so while you can try a couple of different remedies, you will most likely require a long consultation to work out what is behind your individual pain.

Together with homeopathy, there are many natural remedies that have traditionally been used to help your body ease some of that pain and other symptoms.  There is a lovely herbal mix we can offer you, herbal tea, the very popular magnesium supplement Bassica, practitioner only Fish Oils (you don’t want the cheap ones as they aren’t tested for heavy metals or other nasties that can make things worse for you), Tissue salts and of course you can try the float tank, packed full of magnesium to help ease pain.  Try this once weekly as you will be working on your general stress levels, help to reduce pain and help you sleep.

“I had extreme pain mid menstrual cycle. After seeing a specialist I was diagnosed with a uterine polyp. It was highly recommended that I have surgery immediately to remove my polyp, I was told no natural remedy would remove it. I quickly made an appointment with Kate.  After 2-3 months of taking Kate’s administered homeopathic remedy… it was gone!”  B, Victoria.
