Our monthly visitor can leave us feeling pretty crap. Headaches, hormones running wild, aches – to say the least – and tossing and turning trying to get some kip are just a few of the things you might be up against.
You just want to feel better on your period, keep your plans and carry on through the week without a hitch.
It’s no wonder that we dread coming ‘on’, especially during times when you really want to wear that white dress, you’re going on holiday or there’s a specific celebration you want to be on top form for.
If you know that your period turns you into someone far from your usual happy self, then this isn’t ideal.
However, your time of the month doesn’t have to be something that fills you with dread.
We swear by Our Remedy oil to help with everything from sleepless nights to aches and poor moods – let’s hear more about it and how it might help you
No doubt you’ve seen that combo of letters before, but did you know it could make you feel better on your period?
Could a natural product make you feel better on your period?
Back and Leg Aches
I’m someone who really suffered with this during my period. It’s the sort of ache that makes you want to do nothing but curl up with a hot water bottle, but sometimes that just isn’t enough.
Using a dose of this oil daily throughout the month, may help with this symptom. The cannabinoid has been researched to find that a response between your cells and receptors may help to create an anti inflammatory and pain easing effect.
Do you notice that your heart is like a box of frogs when Aunt Flo comes to stay? This can be down to fluctuating hormone levels.
Canna binoid oil has been found to have calming properties and is used by many who suffer from anxiety.
Stomache aches happen due to your uterus contracting. They can come on suddenly, leaving you feeling hot and flustered.
This cramping could be helped with Our Remedy as the ingredients may relax the smooth muscle tissue which lines the uterus, minimising cramps.
If you suffer from IBS then you might notice your symptoms are worse during this week. It is because your hormones are changing which directly affects the digestive tract.
You might notice that bloating, stomach aches and diarrhoea are worse during this time. Our Remedy natural oil may help to regulate functions of the gut and digestive secretions.
If what you said to someone 2 weeks ago is popping into your head at 3am and causing you to toss and turn you’re not alone.
Women with PMS are twice as likely to suffer from symptoms of insomnia. Taking a dose of canna bidiol in a hot chocolate or chamomile tea before you hit the hay could do just the trick.
