Have we been looking for the cure to period pain in all the wrong places? Hot water bottles, herbal teas, medication, you name it, every woman at one point of their life can swear to admitting to trying out all the hacks to get rid of the monthly women pain. One woman however claims to say that the cure to period pain can be found in period itself.
Former hairdresser Yazmina, 26, who appeared on an SBS show called Medicine or Myth? shared her monthly ritual to get rid of the pain. Talking about the remedy, she adds that she smears the bloody, monthly discharge on her face to rid herself of the excruciating discomfort.
‘I use blood in a way to connect either through putting it on my hand or anointing it on my third eye,’ she reveals on the show.
‘By doing this, it has relieved the discomfort.’ To gather her menstrual fluids Yazmina uses a menstrual cup for her period, then pours it into a small jar.
‘I’ve been using this remedy now for about 10 months to a year and my cramping has gone,’ she says. ‘What I found is taking that time out, actually be with myself, and meditate, connect with my body, it’s like the pain has gone away. ‘I just want every woman to feel it’ she urges other woman to try the technique.
The unusual ‘healer’ has also previously shared footage of her bloody ceremony in an attempt to show that menstrual cycle is nothing to be ashamed of.
"There is too much taboo surrounding this natural cycle. By showing this publicly, I think it shows that it's actually ok to feel connected to it’’ Yazmina added.
