Take so many herbs that I can't see straight. LOl. Kidding. But that is what I do. I have endometriosis, so I'd have extremely debilitating pain during my cycles (even after meds and surgery) so these days I make sure to take aloe (internally, straight from my plant) and I also take wheatgrass, forskholii and BC powder for the migraines that come along with my cycles. I sure noticed a difference after the aloe and wheatgrass. I try to drink a glass of acai juice around my periods, but it's tough because I can't drink much without it upsetting my stomach (the acidity or something in all juice kind of makes my stomach crappy.) It's all helpful stuff though.
I also try to eat the best I can, but during my cycles I go freaking crazy! I crave everything, and usually just let myself have it.
What's helped the most is aloe though. I can do nothing and take one small chunk the first day of my period and be a new person the rest of the week. That stuff has been nothing less than a God-send for me.
