Herbal Remedies for Dysmenorrhea

Dysmenorrhea, or painful menstruation is associated with hormonal imbalances such as high estrogen levels, deficiencies of the blood, adrenal system or immune systems, weak digestion, and liver stagnation.

A program of herbal tonics, including hormone regulators, herbal antispasmodics that have an affinity for the uterus, liver stimulants, and anti-inflammatories such as evening primrose are all recommended by herbalists. Recent research shows that women who eat soy products, such as tofu and tempeh, experience less symptoms during their menstrual cycle.
