7. Cinnamon


Cinnamon is effective in reducing heavy menstrual bleeding associated with endometriosis, uterine fibroids and adenomyosis. This herb reduces the bleeding by stimulating blood flow away from the uterus. In addition, its anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties help relieve cramps.

  • Add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder to a cup of hot water. Simmer for a few minutes. Add honey and drink it 2 times a day.
  • Alternatively, take 3 drops of cinnamon bark tincture, 2 times a day.
  • You can also take 15 to 30 drops of cinnamon essential oil diluted in ¼ cup of water, up to 3 times per day.

Follow any of these remedies during your period only.


8. Comfrey

  1. It can also be a sign of uterine CANCER! Get it checked out, and do NOT take “no” for an answer. Be persistent, the life you save may be your own.

  2. Good morning,
    I love your list, but I would like to add one thing…essential oil of cypress. I take two drops in a glass of water in the morning and two in the evening and it really slows down my menstrual flow. It’s truly amazing.

    1. Yes, especially the organic apple cider vinegar which also has other great benefits for you. Add organic honey w/ warm water for better results.

  3. I have not seen it here, but I read about orange juice and grapefruit juice helping. I only like orange juice so I tried it. I’ve been drinking it for about a year now whenever I start my cycle. It really works for me! I drink one or two glasses the day before or on the day I start and the day after. I hardly have any clotting or heavy cycles. I used to be afraid to go places on the second day of my cycle and I would pack extra clothes, sometimes two sets. I swear by it and tell family and friends, it’s not something I tell everyone, but when a coworker mentions her many trips to the restroom, I gotta speak up. I also believe in regular gyno appointments, because of someone I knew who had heavy cycles and cervical cancer. It’s worth a try, it may work for you too!
