Why do we experience period pain? Isn’t it normal?

Period pain is an inflammatory response occurring in the uterus often associated with an inflammatory diet. It is a sign from the body that something is out of balance or sub-optimal. In other words it is not normal for women to live with period pain, if the body is in balance we can experience our monthly cycle pain free!

While we recommend an anti-inflammatory plant based diet as part of a holistic approach to correcting period pain, you can enjoy safe and effective pain relief with our high strength tincture of ginger.
