How to manage Period Pains with Chinese Herbal Tea
Menstruation pain affects all women at some point. PMS is a common condition and symptoms can affect about 85% of women. Painful pre-menstruation symptoms can usually start around 5 to 11 days before menstruation. Menstruation pain can start at anytime from the beginning of the period cycle and can continue throughout the cycle.
Menstruation pain symptoms can include:
lower abdominal cramping that can radiate to lower back;
heavy menstrual flow sometimes with clots;
mood change, etc
In western medicine, it is believed that the hormone prostaglandin, which constricts the blood flow and also triggers the shedding of the uterus lining, causes muscle contraction and cramps which can lead to menstruation pain.
In Chinese medicine, we believe there are two major causes for pain: deficiency and blockage. Menstruation pain can be caused by deficient blood and Yin fluid of the body and also can be caused by blood status in uterus or stagnation of energy flow.
Menstruation pain can be also caused by identifiable medical problem such as endometriosis, uterine fibroids, and pelvic inflammatory disease.
Our herbal tea will mostly help with the proper flow of energy and blood in the lower abdomen area to help with easing menstruation pain. The herbal tea to combat menstruation pain contains Rose buds, Chinese Motherwort, Hawthorn berry and Chinese Dates.
