2. Using a hot water bottle or hot water bag: Fill the hot water bottle with hot water and heat it in a painful area to relieve symptoms of physical pain. Hot water is effective. Warm water won't do. Additionally, drinking hot water can also alleviate pain.
3. Brown sugar water: Take an appropriate amount of brown sugar, not too little. Soak it in hot water and drink it while it's hot. Don't wait for it to cool down before drinking. It won't have any effect. Brown sugar can help replenish blood and alleviate menstrual cramps.

Methods for relieving dysmenorrhea
1. Dietary balance: Eating more healthy and nutritious foods such as vegetables, fruits, chicken, and fish is beneficial for women's health. Eating less and eating more in daily diet can help reduce menstrual pain.
2. Mineral supplementation: If a woman lacks minerals in her body, it can also cause physiological and physiological pain. Women should pay attention to supplementing minerals such as calcium and magnesium in daily life to help alleviate physiological pain.
3. Avoid caffeine: All foods and beverages containing caffeine should be avoided. Coffee, tea, cola, and chocolate all contain a lot of caffeine, causing excessive nervousness. Especially during physiological days, overly tense emotions are the cause of physical pain.
4. Prohibition: When swelling occurs during menstruation, drinking alcoholic beverages should be completely prohibited. Because alcohol can exacerbate edema. Meanwhile, alcohol may directly or indirectly affect changes in estrogen levels, disrupting the normal menstrual cycle.
5. Keep warm: During menstruation, insulation work must be completed to keep the body warm, accelerate blood circulation, relax muscles, especially the spasms and congested pelvic area. Wear clothes to keep warm during holidays. Additionally, drinking hot herbal tea and hot lemon juice will make you comfortable.
1. Taking painkillers: At the beginning of dysmenorrhea, women can take painkillers with milk and food. The painkillers take effect after about 20-30 minutes and last for 12 hours. This method is not recommended for long-term use.
2. Moxibustion method: Select acupoints such as Sanyinjiao and Zusanli, hang the moxa stick at a height of about 3cm from the acupoint, and ensure local warmth without burns. Each acupoint lasts for about 10-15 minutes, with a degree of redness on the skin.
3. Massage method: Rub the palms of both hands until fever occurs, and massage the lower abdomen of the navel in a clockwise direction for about 200 times. Alternatively, massage the Sanli and Sanyinjiao acupoints for one minute each.
4. Hot compress method: Hot compress on the lower abdomen can help alleviate uterine spasms, promote abdominal blood circulation, and alleviate dysmenorrhea. If heated traditional Chinese medicine is used for hot compress, the effect of promoting blood circulation, unblocking collaterals, promoting qi circulation, and relieving pain will be better.
