Using a heat patch to get rid of period cramps

Often, cramps affect many females before and during their period cycle. Though, some people only experience mild cramps, but others go through a rough time.

So, if you are someone who is not so lucky and gets hit by extreme cramps, try these home remedies to get away with the pain!


Use a heat patch

Honestly, this is the most basic home remedy to get away with period cramps. Scientifically, using a heat patch around your abdomen can help relax the muscles of your uterus, as these muscles are the reason behind period cramps. At the same time, heat can also boost circulation in your abdomen which can eventually reduce pain.

Massaging tummy with essential oils

Some oils are really helpful in reducing period cramps as they have the ability to boost circulation. So, all you need to do is massage you abdomen or tummy with some essential oils like lavender, clove, cinnamon, rose, etc. Remember, before applying the oil on your tummy, mix it well with a carrier oil like coconut oil which will help the essential oil get into your skin and do its work.

Do yoga

A study suggests that practising yoga can be helpful at reducing period cramps. In fact, there are some major yoga poses which can help in reducing period cramps, and the names of them are:

  • Child's pose or Balasana
  • Bound angle pose or Baddha Konasana
  • Head to knee forward bend or Janu Sirsasana
  • Resting corpse pose or Shavasana
Avoid having caffeine and salty foods
During periods, its highly advised to avoid caffeine, salty foods, alcohol, and fatty foods. By cutting these off from your diet during periods, drastic relief from period cramps can be attained.

Bopanna and Hima Kohli to list the petition urgently, against the backdrop of the ongoing election process.
