Could ginger be an effective natural remedy for menstrual cramps? Find out!

In this video, we’re going to talk about a helpful remedy for those with painful menstrual periods—ginger!

On the first day of a woman’s period, a big change happens in the uterus. These changes happen to the muscles, blood vessels, and inflammation levels. This is due to hormone-like compounds called prostaglandins.

Prostaglandins help regulate inflammation when tissue is damaged.

When someone takes an NSAID, like Ibuprofen or Aspirin, this can block certain enzymes that make prostaglandins.

Unfortunately, there can be some side effects to NSAIDS:
• Indigestion
• Ulcers
• Headaches
• Dizziness
• Drowsiness
• Allergies

The phytonutrients in ginger can act as potent inhibitors of prostaglandins.

In fact, studies have found that ginger can be just as effective as ibuprofen, acetaminophen, and caffeine for pain related to menstruation.

Of course, ginger doesn’t carry the same side effects as medications do. It can even support your digestion.

Ginger seems to be an even more effective remedy for menstrual cramps if you have it at the beginning of your period.

  1. Good day Dr . Please I have a question. I have been feeling unwell since 2days. But i was think of taking a general medical check-up. Like kidney test, liver test, insulin resistance, hepatitis test etc. I just want to do a general test to know my health statues but I don't know how to explain or what kind of test it requires. Please I will be more than grateful if you reply. Thanks

  2. Hi Dr Berg! i would love if you did a video on the absence of menstration, and what to do about it, whether it’s a deficiency or what not. I’ve been on keto (healthy, clean keto that is!) since September 2019 and lost my period back in February 2020 with no signs of it thereafter. I know I’m not the only one! A video would be so great for me to help get it back! I trust your info more then any doctor! I want to get it back naturally and without “ramping up the carbs and calories” or “gain the weight back” like some websites say to do🙄 I worked hard to lose 30 lbs and I plan to keep it off! And I don’t want to take any type of meds to “regulate” my body

    Also: I’m 21! 5’2 and went from 140 to 110 (happily so, and took me about a year and 3 months, so it wasn’t a ‘rapid’ weight loss) I try hard to get my macros in, I’m not starving myself or anything, I get 7hrs sleep at night, and overall take care of myself, and read all the ingredients to everything. I have a well comprehension of nutrition and how to take care of myself, just can’t seem to figure this mystery out. Hoping you can do a video so I can better understand what’s going on and how to get back on track🙏🏼

  3. I keep knobs of peeled and rinsed ginger root in my freezer at all times so it’s ready for grating freshly over my daily salad. I also grate it into my matcha green tea and soups. Ginger root is a kitchen staple!

  6. If you're going to use an "amazing ginger" in the thumbnail, at least use a very beautiful one, not a "average ginger" lol

  7. I have replied to several people asking the same question : how to take ginger? Since I've been taking it for years I feel obligated to share how I prepare it so others may benefit like I have.

    Grate ginger finely or crush it, you should get about 2 teaspoons worth. Put it in a cup and pour fresh boiling water( not previously boiled water that you reboiled). Let it steep for 15 to 20 minutes then drink. It also helps with the bloating gas/flatulence issues (crushed fennel seeds along with ginger are excellent for this too). Take it two days before your period starts or if you forget on the day itself. Once a day.

    You can also take by another method : take the grated ginger first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Same quantity chew it a little and mix it with your saliva for better digestibility. Then swallow. Hope this may have helped someone.

  8. How do we make the ginger? Do we chew it, make it into a disgusting concoction or what do I do? As every 1st day of my period is unbearable and so painful. Cramps that make me fail to walk or sit and over bloating even if I haven't eaten anything

  9. I heat up a shot of water and add ginger, tumeric, fenugreek, fennel (antispasmodic), cinnamon, black pepper and coconut oil. Turns out they do something similar in Indonesia and call it Jamu. Works great for pain, headaches and digestion.
