I was clear I did not want to have more medicines. So I looked at home remedies that could help me keep the pain under some control.

In my earlier posts about endometriosis, I had shared how I realized that my extremely painful period pains were not just that, but were actually a sign of severe endometriosis.

I also shared about some treatment options that are medically suggested for endometriosis, and especially about the D and C procedure, which is one of the earlier treatment options that your doctor might suggest.

The one thing that all women suffering from endometriosis have to go through no matter what is unbearable pain. For some, the pain starts just a few days before the bleeding actually begins, and ends with the bleeding. In some cases, this could be about a week, which is normally how long your cycle would be.

In some cases, such as mine, the pain can never go away, especially because my bleeding never stopped! So that meant I had to deal with mind-numbing pain every day for the past two years, for which I was put on high dosage painkillers for more than a year.

But once I decided to get off the painkillers, I was not able to function and even something as regular as speaking became almost impossible. I was clear I did not want to have more medicines. So I looked at home remedies that could help me keep the pain under some control.

That is when I found out these two desi kitchen ingredients that are natural pain reducers!

These 2 DESI remedies can reduce your endometriosis pain!

1. Ginger: Yes, almost all of us in India love that typical cup of adrak wali chai, and what better way to relieve my pain and bring it down to some extent than having more ginger?

Ginger has natural anti-inflammatory properties and also brings down your pain and nausea by significant amounts. Not only does it prevent further inflammation, it also helps treat the inflammation you have at the moment, and hence treats and prevents pain.

I have it in my cup of tea each day, I also have it freshly grated in a cup of hot water each morning. Not just that, sometimes, when I am in pain, I take a piece of fresh ginger and keep sucking on it.

2. Jeera seeds (cumin): This is another Indian spice almost all of us use in our daily meal preparation. Cumin has both anti-inflammatory as well as anti-spasmodic properties, which helps to bring down the pain levels and also soothes your body overall.

In addition to adding it to my meals in its seed or powder form, I also soak a tsp. of jeera seeds in the water for a few hours and slowly sip on it after heating it a little.
