Pain and headache cause by menstruation is not illness; rather ‘weakness’.
This is what my wife did.
No cold drink, no carbonated drink, no Coca-Cola, no ice shake, no coconut juice drink; no any kind of drink that is cold in nature or result in ‘bodily cold’ in nature (eg. Coconut juice drink).
1 scoop of ice cream once in a while, I think is OK, for the time being; perhaps?
Ultimately, drop this as well.
Drink hot soup, tea or coffee. Fruit juice that’s not cold, may not taste nice; however human is good in getting use to new habits.
Walk a lot in the park with your love one or friends, or cycle. Don’t jog.
Drink nuts + fruits + vegitable smoothies, prefer not cold either. I guess this part common for westerner.
Try spirulina. If the instruction says take 10 a day, starting with taking 5 a day instead, 3 in the morning and 2 in the nite. If instruction says take 20 a day, take only 10 a day and split 5-5 morning and nite. Let your body get used to it. Beware of the complication, some may have this issue.
If you do not experience heat after a few weeks, slowly increase the quantity until you follow the prescription.
Or take 1 capsule of Cod Liver Oil, start with 3~4 days once before you slowly increase to follow the prescription.
Don’t start with both. Choose between Spirulina and Cod Liver Oil; else will not know which one is causing complication if there is one. Cod Liver Oil seems to have better immediate positive effect compare to spirulina, but for the long term health, I believe spirulina is better.
Pls google on these two items, find out which brand is ‘clean’ that is conveniently available to you. Pay special attention to the source; where it comes from. ‘Clean’ subject to your acceptance level; of course!
May you be well!
