This ginger tea is magic!
It’s a blessing for me. Nothing ever works and this tea really changed the game for me
I have read all your testimonials for this tea and since I have tried it myself (in rare months if I get period pains) I know this does work well. To understand why this recipe works, try to understand why do we get pain during the periods. Vata dosha (space and air governed) is responsible for the all the movements happening in our body including menstruation. When this Vata is imbalanced, on will experience pain. (Apana Vayu, subdosha is responsible for menstrual flow)
Having warming spice like cinnamon, ginger, haldi and jaggery helps move vata much easily thus reducing our period pain + making sure the flow is also non obstructed. This tea will help bloating or back pain as well.
Other than this tea, having a halwa/kadha prashad really helps me with anxiety/pain during periods. So anything that’s warmin, unctuous (good fat) & Nourishing & heavy (yet easy to digest) will help you balance the Vata. Just avoid super cold stuff and watch out your caffiene consumption.
Other Nuskha that works best for me is soaking raisins in water few days before the periods and having it first thing in the morning (also drink up thr water). Raisins are very rejuvenating and nourishes vata and pitta dosha.
When I asked you guys about your trusted home remedy I received about 139 entries on my Instagram. Since many are repetitive, I have collated them all for you to save it for the future. Also, know that everyone’s body is different and one must try anything new with caution. Try a little and see if it works for you else, drop it out.
