For ladies w/cramps try this: Pick up a pack of Aniseed from your local market in the spice section (Stater Bros. has it, also called 'Anise' in Spanish). Get the pack where you can see each tiny seed (not inside the husk). Bring a small pan of distilled water (1-2 cups) to a boil. If you weigh 120-150lbs put 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) of the seed into a coffee cup, (don't worry you can put more or less as needed) bruise(smash)the seeds a little with a spoon (bruising the seeds releases the helpful oils of the seed) and pour the seeds into the boiled water, cover and TURN OFF the flame. Let the seeds steep in the hot water for 20 mins. Use a sieve & pour into a cup & drink. You may drink up to 3 cups a day. Anise is a relaxant and an antispasmodic, improves digestion, gas and bloating, and it smells a little like licorice! Don't add sugar or honey; you won't need it. The hotter you drink it the better (but don't burn your mouth, reasonably hot is good). Curl up w/a good book and enjoy! My daughter doesn't take Pamprin anymore, now she just says 'mom, please make me a tea'. My grandmother learned it from her mother, & we; my 3 sisters and I learned it from ours and we use it and teach it to our kids as well. I bid you good health & learning.
