amia, went to search what this is and found several organizations, but not any kind of chemical or plant. Can you give me a little more insight?

I used to have this extreme stomachache whenever my menses were on. And my grandma used to give me fresh ginger boiled in water to drink and that did help me a lot in easing the pain.

I tried the asafetida technique. The smell and the taste is awful... it is like yuck!!! I can’t drink it anymore but minus the taste and smell it is very effective. Thanks.

I have heard that banana and guava should be avoided as it could lead to constipation. But I am not sure whether it is a myth or a fact.

So far, the best remedy for my horrible cramps have been the following: Magic pad (2 and a half minutes in microwave) Boiling cinnamon stick for 2 min and drinking it warm about 3-4 times a day. Avoid cafeine drinks Try a shot of cognac (will warm up the stomach area)
