I had the most terrible cramps, I wasnt sure whether this was from overdosing on coconut oil (as it has done this to me previously) or just menstrual cramps (I only get them sometimes)

I put a thick slice of ginger, honey and sprinkle of cinnamon in hot water and sipped it. About an hour later, the cramps had completely gone. Will have to experiment again as I am a little sceptic and could well have been coincidence. Just wish I could heal my piriformis syndrome next lol

Love this site!!!!!

All I can say is Wow! Thank you so much!! I can't believe how well it works. I've been suffering for years from horrible cramps. To the point where I have to throw up. After a very restless night and a painful morning in bed, I decided to see what suggestions this website has. The only thing I had at home from all of the suggestions, was dried Ginger root. I put about half a teaspoon in a glass, poured boiling hot water to make tea from it. And drank it all after it cooled down a bit, I have to say I wasn't sure it would work, but I did pray! And 10 minutes later I could not believe no more cramping!! I guess the Ginger has a way of relaxing the muscles. Thank you!!!!!

Ginger for Menstural Cramps

I used to take Motrin Ibuprofrin for menstural cramps, and now I am so happy to have discovered a natural cure.
I boil 8 cups of water add about 2 inches of fresh ginger root that has been cut into 1/8" disks. You can mash up the ginger if desired. Boil the ginger for three minutes, then simmer for ten minutes. You can drink as ginger water, or add a tea bag (i like to add two green tea bags). Two cups of ginger water should relieve the cramps. I usally save the rest in my fridge and drink as needed.

Sometime ago a gal friend was wearing a wrist brace for carpal tunnel. I told her about ginger root and gave her about ten capsules to try. About one week later I saw her and asked about the results. She said it helped with the carpal tunnel but it made the biggest difference with her menstrual cramps within about 15 to 20 minutes!
