Your Stories: Natural therapies offered me relief from severe menstrual pain

“I will always be extremely grateful I had access to this form of health and healing.”

Many years ago, when I was a young woman, I used to suffer debilitating symptoms each time I menstruated. I would feel weak, extremely cold, extremely faint and vomit. This would last for the first day or two of onset and I lost a great deal of time both personally and professionally dealing with the symptoms.

Pain killers and other medications would often make the symptoms worse. One day a friend suggested I see a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner and as the saying goes ‘the rest is history’ in that my symptoms began to improve and I went on to have almost no adverse symptoms for the remainder of my menstrual history.

I will never forget the clinical skill and knowledge applied to my condition and I will always be extremely grateful I had access to this form of health and healing.

I have had a lifelong interest in natural therapies and went on to study Western Herbal Medicine myself (in my 50’s), as I was inspired by the safe, effective, life changing assistance that I received.
