Once a month, almost every woman on the planet has her period. It’s usually several days of being bloated and only we women know the pain of the entire event. Not every woman cramps, though. While some women are bent over with pain, others simply go through the process almost unaffected. Why?
If you have a difficult period every month, read on to the end of this article for a possible cure. I’ve used this for the past three months in a row and it’s almost eliminated my cramps and my flow more steady. I know it sounds a bit far-fetched. I thought it was, too until I’ve noted the changes and how it has affected me for the past 3 months in a row.
It’s tough to have a period once a month. It’s emotionally wearing and physically tiring. Yet, women everywhere are doing it all of the time and only a few are actually noticed. I used to think that it had to do with genes. Maybe some cultures are either tougher or simply have easier periods. Or, I’ve often thought that maybe some women just didn’t notice that their body parts are more or less strangling different parts while letting mass amounts of blood into the common system. Could this description be more vulgar?
Self-pity is a great solution. As a woman it’s wonderful to think that you’re the only one dying once a month on the planet and the rest of the women are luckier. Maybe, it’s just something we hold onto thinking that one day when we’re close to our deaths, it’ll be all over. How exactly is that something to look forward to? The point being made is that only when we are almost dead is this thing called our “period” actually over. It’s a sobering thought.
So, how does a woman who has a tough period make it easier? The simple solution is diet. Of course, almost every doctor on this planet has likely suggested the same thing. Eat more leafy greens or even more meat or seafood. I’ve tried both with some success. I have to admit that during that time of the month, I am very drawn to a glass of wine, which is high in iron, and want to devour anything with protein in it. I’m a vegetarian, so there are many limits to this prospect.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Iron deficiency is more common in the United States than any other nutritional deficiency.
I’ve searched the web and researched the amount of iron in seaweed with little luck. Interestingly, most websites say that seaweed has very little iron. That in itself makes me take a second look at it. And I bring up seaweed for this reason.
A couple of months ago, I stocked up on bags of crispy seaweed. It’s bagged so that it can last through a nuclear blast and still remain intact. Although it hasn’t had to survive a nuclear blast, I found a bag of it just today. It also just happens to be that today, I started my period. When I saw the bag, I started to salivate. If you’ve ever been pregnant or are a woman on your period, you know what it feels like to uncontrollably salivate. If you’ve never done this before, then listen up. Whatever it is that you’re looking at or smelling is something that your body wants for a specific reason. Today, my body wanted this Japanese Crispy Seaweed, Tao Kae Noi.
When I wrote this article it was three months ago. At the time, I thought these seaweed treats might be a fluke. However, I tried this method for the past two months making sure to eat some every day and when i start to experience cramps.
Below is a monthly update from the past three months of eating Japanese Crispy Seaweed.
1. Month 1: When I opened the bag, I ate several of the delicious crispy sticks and the most amazing thing happened in literally minutes: I STOPPED CRAMPING. This was a very immediate reaction.
2. Month 2: I’ve started to eat these treats almost daily. The one thing I notice was that when I started my period I didn’t immediately start to cramp really hard. No kidding. It worked. I now sound like a kind of advertisement. I asked a nutritionist about seaweed and was told that it likely has iodine, iron and trace elements in it.
3. Month 3: This month is the third month of faithfully eating this seaweed treat. I’ve eaten the treats almost daily and when I started my period, I hardly noticed it. My second day is usually exhausting. However, my body barely noticed it.Amazingly, I didn’t have any deathly cramps and I didn’t have any insane cramps. My period has gone from 2 to 3 days of pain to 5 days of slow, soft flow. I can hardly believe the effect it’s had on my.
Whatever it is that’s in it, my body and I LOVE it.
These results may not exactly be what happens to you, but that’s exactly what happens to me. I’m going to keep these little Japanese Crispy Seaweeds in easy grasp, especially during my period. Please try it yourself. I hope that your cramps will be less during your period.
