A natural remedy for menstrual pain

When Nature knows best! ❤️ A natural remedy for menstrual pain 🍋☕

Many years ago, when I was a teenager and living in Italy, I met an elderly woman (a friend of the family) who gave me an old Italian recipe for menstrual pain like headaches and cramps…. Last week, I was bleeding, and her remedy came to mind. I am sharing it here if you’d like to try it. I can assure you that it works!!! You’ll need fresh brewed espresso and lemon juice. Squeeze a little lemon juice, I’d say three teaspoons, in a hot double espresso. Do Not add anything else to it. No sugar, no milk…. Just freshly squeezed lemon juice and a good old-fashioned espresso. Mix and drink. It is one of the most disgusting things I had to try, but I drank it because it works like magic. ***Please do not use powdered instant coffee. It was funny to discover years later that painkillers have caffeine in them, and there was a specific tablet (I don’t remember the name) for menstrual pain made with these two ingredients. Mother Nature always knows best!

With Love and Grace
