I previously described how ginger works as well as the leading drug and the treatment of migraines described is one of the most common pain syndromes affecting as much as 12% of the population you call that common how about menstrual cramps the plague up to 90% of younger women you can tell this is written by a guy because he emphasizes the absenteeism and all the lost productivity for our nation but it also just really hurts so can ginger help a quarter teaspoon of ground ginger ginger powder given three times a day during the first three days of menstruation and pain dropped from like a seven on a scale of one to ten down to a five whereas in the placebo group there was no significant change most women and the placebo group said their symptoms stayed the same whereas those unknowingly in the ginger group said they felt much better a subsequent study found that even just an eighth of a teaspoon three times a day appeared to work just as well dropping pain from eight to a six but then the second month down to a three the alleviation of menstrual pain was more remarkable during the second month of the intervention and they’d only been taking the ginger for four days not the whole month suggesting that it might work even better if women use ginger every period what about the duration of pain a quarter teaspoon of ground ginger three times a day not only dropped the severity of pain from about seven down to five but decrease the duration from a total of 19 hours in pain down to about 15 hours indicating the three-quarters of a teaspoon of ginger powder a day for three days is a safe and effective way to reduce pain relief and college students with painful menstrual cramps compared to placebo capsules filled instead with powdered toast but women don’t take bread crumbs for the cramps how does ginger compared to ibuprofen an eighth of a teaspoon four times a day of ginger for three days or 400 milligrams of motrin and the ginger worked just as well as the drug of choice if you do take the drugs of a surprise to learn it may be better to take drugs like ibuprofen and naproxen on an empty stomach as this may speed up the pain relief and help keep people from taking higher doses you [Music] you
