say goodbye to period pains naturally!


painful periods (dysmenorrhea), are not fun in the slightest, and whilst a little bit of pain may be common, we definitely shouldn't brush it under the carpet and label it as normal. our bodies are extremely clever and pain is its way of telling us that something just isn't quite right. by taking pain medication we can eliminate the symptom, but it's not getting to the root cause of why the pain is there in the first place. there are 2 main categories of dysmenorrhea: primary in which the uterine muscle is healthy but not functioning optimally; and secondary dysmenorrhea, in which the pain is caused by an underlying disorder such as in pelvic inflammatory disease or endometriosis. symptoms of pain, especially when accompanied with spotting, should always be checked with a doctor...






living with chronic pain isn't just about living with pain


chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts for more than twelve weeks. twelve weeks worth of pain sounds horrendous to most people. unthinkable to others.but what if that pain goes on for twelve months? twelve years? what if that pain just goes on and on and on with no end in sight?that's what life is like for millions of people worldwide. pain every single day.it's not pleasant. it's not pretty. but it's life. and for many people, it's really quite a difficult, ugly kind of life.when someone has chronic pain, their pain dictates what they can and, more often, can't do. they can't always go for that coffee when a friend asks. they aren't always able to go to a family wedding. they may not manage to go to their own mother's birthday party.friends sometimes drift away. they want a m...

the researchers plan to recruit 20,000 people as test subjects, all of whom will undergo a "cold pressor test" that requires them to submerge their hands in cold water for three minutes. that will give the team a way to gauge each person's pain threshold. the participants also have to answer questions about drug tolerance and how sensitive they are to pain, as well as to assess how much pain they think they'll be in for a bunch of theoretical scenarios.in addition to figuring out the role of genetics in tolerance, emily drabant conley, 23andme's vp of business development, said that results from the study may also "help advance the use of precision medicine in pain management." hopefully, being able to tailor treatments for every person could also prevent addiction to pain killers. ...

21st century wellness tip or medieval medical advice?


 back in my salad days, when i was familiar with a super applicator and knew the exact minute to "drop" my "napro", i amused more than a few people by revealing that i was always happy to get my period.it probably amused them because my periods were, putting it mildly, an unrelenting hellride: big cramps, huge flow, general existential woe and gnashing of teeth. childbirth back in the pre-germ-theory era was evidently pretty chill.  but the arrival of my monthly period was always a welcome sign that, however unpleasant those few days were, "things" were still in working order.that was before a milder brand of polycystic ovaries left me with almost psychedelic midcycle pain, and for the past few years, the contraceptive pill i take to manage all of the above has left my period c...
