What Natural Treatments Work for Bad Period Pain?

Naturopath – Calanna Whole Health Pharmacy

Dear Jana, I get really bad period pain. My Dr suggested contraceptives might help but I’d prefer something natural. Do I have options?

The effectiveness of a natural treatment depends on the reason for the pain. Some conditions that lead to period pain can impact your fertility so make sure your GP is referring you for further investigations. Natural therapies for period pain centre on balancing hormones, reducing inflammation, managing stress with nutritional and herbal supplements, and more. There are differences between supplements so make sure you seek advice on a product that’s going to work for you.
