Many women suffer from pain during their periods. Homeopathy can provide effective relief from period pain without putting a stress on the liver. Women with other hormonal symptoms such as irregular periods or women who experience intense pain every month should see a classical homeopath for constitutional treatment.
For occasional or moderate period pains, the following homeopathic remedies are commonly indicated:
Belladonna: Useful when the pain comes on very suddenly. Throbbing pain with a sensation of heaviness, sometimes accompanied by headaches.
Magnesium Phosphoricum: Cramping pains that are relieved by pressure or warmth.
Colocynthis: This remedy can look similar to Mag Phos (pains better from pressure or warmth). A woman needing this remedy would also be in an irritable, angry mood.
Pulsatilla: This woman is very weepy and craves affection. She has no thirst and feels worse in a warm room.
Potency and Repetition: Give a 30C potency (strength) of the indicated homeopathic remedy up to every 4 hours. If there is no relief after 6-8 hours, try a different remedy.
If the remedy choice isn’t clear, try Magnesium Phosphoricum 6X Homeopathic Cell Salts. This is a great remedy for all types of cramping pains. It can be used for leg cramps or any type of muscle pain.
