Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

Menstrual Cramps

My daughter had horrible menstrual cramps. When she first started her period, she was cramping 24 hours a day. During this time she was in terrible pain -- she could not get out of bed, and tried to treat the cramps with heat and ibuprofen. She continued to cramp for four additional days during every cycle with pain so severe she could hardly walk. I took her to an OB/GYN. The OB/GYN suggested beginning the ibuprofen 24 hours before starting her period and doubling the dosage. She was taking 400 mg of ibuprofen every four hours for four or five days straight. As she was still unable to function two to three days of every month, I brought her to Dr. Wang for acupuncture and herbal treatments. At first she was scared of the needles, but quickly found out they didn't hurt. After acupuncture treatments, her periods improved dramatically. She is now able to function every day of her period.
