"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. " - Eva
