LADIES ONLY: When it’s that time – how to stop the pain!

Time of the month AGAIN and fed up with the utter pain?

Well having had a little scoot over the internet in an attempt find out more – in very basic general terms it appears as though the ‘fun’ we go through is heavily influenced by prostaglandins and of course estrogens.

I wondered – if you don’t want to be on the pill to control your estrogen levels or take ibuprofen for anti-inflammatory to have an affect on the prostaglandins – are there foods that have an affect instead so we can control this at a natural level for ourselves?

Apparently so.

To balance out your estrogen levels keep your diet healthy and balanced – have your 5-a-day, fruits, veg and nuts and reduce fast food, caffeinated drinks and alcohol. You can find more details: here.

Anti inflammatory foods to include into your diet are:

  • Beetroot (my latest favourite)
  • Fatty fish
  • Whole grains
  • Dark leafy greens
  • Nuts
  • Ginger & turmeric
  • Berries

You can find foods listed: here

It will be interesting to see if incorporating these foods and reducing the intake of those they advise against has any affect.
