"I noticed you didn't mention on your site that ginger completely
soothes menstrual cramps. A few months ago, I was out of Advil and too
crampy to go to the pharmacy, which was closed anyway. I looked in my
herbal dictionary and ginger was listed as being good for PMS pain.
I just grate up about a teaspoonfull (or less) and swallow it using
water as a chaser. Within about 15-20 minutes cramps are gone, and stay
gone for many hours. It works better than commercial pills since they
seem to dull pain, whereas ginger seems to knock it out. Apparently
it relaxes the muscles or something. All I know is it works. "
