    I first turned to Chinese medicine for help with my horrible monthly cramps that would leave me with cold sweats from the pain. Over-the-counter pain medication was there when I really needed it, but I was truly searching for a long term solution. After seriously adopting and committing to acupuncture and diet changes that my Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner advised me with, I slowly started seeing results.

    This is one of the recipes I ate pretty regularly leading up to my time of the month and during it. It’s packed with potassium, magnesium, iron and anti-inflammatory properties, which all helped to ease the pain.

    If you ever need to find some of these more specialty, herbal ingredients, check out my Amazon store page where I’ve linked most of what I use.
