Menstrual Cramp

Are you tired of being tired? Feeling bloated, achy and cramped? The onset of your period does not have to mean it is time to hide under a pile of covers with a scorching hot heating pad. There are ways to manage the cramping and pain with natural remedies, exercise and diet.

Exercise for Pain Management

Doctors have been advising their patients for years to make exercise a part of their daily routine for better health. Exercising on a regular basis can improve your sleep patterns, keep your weight in check and even give you lighter, less painful menstrual cycles. Walking just 30 minutes a day, five days a week can improve muscle tone and strengthen back muscles, which should lessen back pain from cramping. You can find yoga exercises for stretching the abdominal girdle; these exercises are great to do during your menstrual cycle to relief stress and reduce pain.
