Finally, there are alternative therapies that can deal with pain both in the long term and short term.
Heating pads are a savior for all types of pain. Invest in a good heating pad that you can put on your lower abdomen, legs, or lower back when the pain gets severe. Lay down with the heating pad for 15 to 30 minutes at a time.
Another remedy to consider is CBD products. CBD is popularly used for pain management and relaxation. You can find CBD in various forms like lotions, oils, vapors, or bath bombs. Products like lotions and oils allow you to cover the affected spot directly for more focused pain relief.
If CBD is not the right remedy for you, look into acupuncture and massage for relaxation and comfort. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine that works by channeling energy throughout the body.
Although acupuncture departs from western medicine, much success has been found by acupuncture patients for a diverse array of conditions.
Massage therapy can relax the muscles, especially helpful for the muscles that typically cramp during periods. While these are less economical therapies, indulging in these treatments once or twice a month can help to relieve pain and loosen the body.
While most remedies do not work to shrink fibroids, all of these options can be used to relieve pain and allow you to live a more fulfilling life without interruption.
Mix and match these suggestions to find what works for you. You may find that some of these remedies can help with various areas of your life!
