5 Home Remedies for Excessive Menstruation

h. hunt

I have a fibroid that has been causing heavy bleeding for months so I looked up natural remedies. (I can't believe I didn't look it up sooner!) I was bleeding super heavy, with big blood clots and was sometimes soaking through every twenty minutes.

So I combined a few remedies, and am amazed at how fast and well it worked. I took ground ginger, a cinnamon stick and molasses and combined them in boiling water and drank a coffee cup full of it a couple times a day. It tastes surprisingly good! I also took extra magnesium supplements and drank the juice from one whole lemon once a day. I'm not sure which of these worked best since I did them all, but I was desperate.

Either way, I'm glad it worked and now I can finally enjoy some days with no bleeding! It completely stopped within a couple hours of consuming all of those things. I'm on day three and still no bleeding.

Cinnamon. I take 1000mg capsuled cinnamon. Just plain cinnamon and nothing else. It quickly brings excessive bleeding to a halt for me. I have bad anemia and heavy periods. This also reduces cramping, and I'm talking about those bad labor like cramps that doubles you over and leaves you crying.

If I run out of cinnamon caps, I will mix a tsp of ground cinnamon in tea or coffee and it does the trick. Sometimes I repeat it a second time if it doesn't completely take it away.

Herbal tincture of shepherd's purse:
Place several drops under the tongue every 15 minutes until bleeding slows to a normal flow.

'Shepherd's purse is used to stop heavy bleeding and hemorrhaging, particularly from the uterus. When taken internally, shepherd's purse can reduce heavy menstrual periods, and it has been used to treat postpartum hemorrhage.

Still, it is considered most effective for the treatment of chronic uterine bleeding disorders, including uterine bleeding due to the presence of a fibroid tumor. Shepherd's purse has also been used internally to treat cases of blood in the urine and bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract, such as with bleeding ulcers.

An astringent agent, shepherd's purse constricts blood vessels, thereby reducing blood flow. Shepherd's purse is also thought to cause the uterine muscle to contract, which also helps reduce bleeding.'

Excessive Menstruation-

Fortunately, I'm too old for periods anymore, but when I did have them, especially in my 30's and 40's, they were severe- so much blood that it was like a bomb had gone off inside my uterus... finally I discovered that adzuki beans, uncooked but soaked overnight, diminished the bleeding down to almost nothing- what a relief. The formula is this: eat 6 raw adzuki beans which have been soaked overnight, once a day until the symptoms diminish.
The raw beans much be chewed very well before swallowing.
This remedy was found in the book 'Healing With Whole Foods' by Paul Pitchford. It's a 35.00 book and sooooo worth it.
Best of Luck to you all.

I've had this problem for the last two months. My period would just not stop for a whole 2 months! I did not know what to do so I called my doctor and he wanted to give me an ultrasound to see what was going on with me and possibly get a DNC; but I decided to get a second opinion. I called a local doctors office and spoke with a female nurse because I figured they might know a little more. She told me to take a day off work and make sure I don't have anything to do. To not lift anything heavy and relax with my feet elevated for a long time. Also take 800 mg of ibuprofen every 6-8 hours and it should start to slow down. So luckily I was off the next day which was a Sunday and I did exactly what she said. I watched about 6 movies with my feet elevated in the recliner and relaxed. I took 4 advils since they are only 200 mg every 7 hours and basically did nothing at all during that day. The next day my period was so light I needed only a panty liner and they following day it was completely gone. I was so amazed at how fast it worked. All this time I'v been suffering and thinking I had a serious health problem and all I need to do was relax for a day. So ladies when you have a problem similar to this RELAX, prop your feet, and watch a movie! (don't forget this ibuprofen) It might help you.
