I know you’re just dying to know what one capsule of Turmeric Curcumin a few times a week could do to your period
This post is for women education but could be for men if they would like a tip to help ease the pain of what happens to their wives once a month. If you are a woman with insanely heavy periods, debilitating cramps, headaches and extreme fatigue, I may be able to help you out.
To give you some of my history, I decided to insert the copper IUD as a form of birth control. I thought I was playing it safer not adding extra hormones into my body. The doctors all agreed who I talked to. Little did I know, the copper IUD completely threw off my hormones, increased my period time from 4 days to 8 days and I went through 2 of the biggest boxes of tampons each month. So now I’m a raging bitch that I never was, bleeding twice as long than normal and spending 4 times as much money on feminine products.
Long story short, I removed the IUD and was left with how am I going to fix my body naturally. Increased estrogen levels and copper levels can create a huge cancer risk in women. Here’s what I did and now I feel better than I did before the IUD mistake.
Research on what is going on in my body
I spent hours each night researching women’s frustrations with their periods, why they are so bad and if there were women and new studies done about the copper IUD. Lucky for me I found a ton of studies that were published after I decided to get the IUD. Unfortunately, they were not published before. The studies showed how the copper will wreak havoc on a woman’s reproductive system, endocrine system, and immune system.
Note: If you’re struggling to get help, True Health Labs offers a month-long easy saliva at home test to measure all of your female hormones. I would have done this during my problem but it became available after the fact. Give it a try!
I know other women have the same symptoms as I did without the IUD problem. These women could have endometriosis, cysts, fibroids and even cancer. I found most of the pain and problems during a woman’s period are linked to inflammation. Upon researching the health benefits of turmeric, it is known for its amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also linked to reducing the risk of many female problems as listed above.
So I thought, let’s try it out. I don’t normally consume turmeric but I do live on Ibuprofen. I’ve been concerned about the amount of drug I was consuming so Turmeric actually sounded like a better alternative.
Here’s what started happening to my periods after taking Turmeric Curcumin
I bought some all natural capsules and read the combination of Curcumin caused my body to absorb the benefits more efficiently. I have a sensitive stomach so I only took one capsule at night before bed a few times a week. Here is what I noticed after one month and my first period after starting my new regimen:
The duration of my period reduced by 2 days
The amount of blood was significantly reduced
The bloating and pain reduced a noticeable amount
My headaches were less severe
I felt less fatigued
I couldn’t believe the results! Everything I wanted to achieve with this remedy was happening. I continued doing this over the next few months and each cycle was finally becoming more normal and less debilitating. I am finally down to half of a tampon box rather than 2 full boxes. I’m saving money now which is always a plus in anything nowadays! My moods have subsided and I can go out of the house with no worries.
There were other benefits discovered by taking Turmeric Curcumin
I actually started to lose weight. I am not heavy naturally but always have a gut that just won’t disappear. I know there’s many of you like this out there. Taking Turmeric Curcumin May have reduced the inflammation in my stomach and I noticed my pants fit a little looser. It wasn’t like a miracle oh my god I lost 50 lbs kind of thing. It was a small amount of inflammation released that was noticeable enough to make me feel better about myself.

I do not like the taste of Turmeric and that is why I take capsules but there are many other ways to take it. I have many recipes, teas and smoothie ideas to check out on my Pinterest boards.
