By Kyle J. Norton

Ginger may be the next generation of natural whole food for the prevention and treatment of menstrual pain, some scientists found.

Dysmenorrhea is a menstrual pain is pain occurred around a few days before menstruation begins

The symptom normally lasts less than three days.

There are  2 types of dysmenorrhea
* Primary dysmenorrhea is the painful period with no other condition occurred most in the adolescence, affecting over 90% of women in the prime time of their reproductive years. In adolescence, some researchers suggested the symptoms are associated with the immature reproductive organs.

* Secondary dysmenorrhea is the painful period associated with the disorder in the woman's reproductive organs, such as endometriosis, adenomyosis, uterine fibroids, or infection.

Some women affected by the painful period may experience symptoms of It occurs in your lower abdominal pain can be felt in the hips, lower back, or thighs.

Other common symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, lightheadedness, headache, or fatigue.

There is no cure for dysmenorrhea. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs),  the most common treatment for both primary and secondary dysmenorrhea may be effective, however, the drugs can induce some serious side effects, including liver or kidney problems. and hypertension.

If you are currently using conventional medicine for the treatment of dysmenorrhea, please sure you know all the side effects for the preventive measure.
In the use of diet therapy for the prevention and treatment of dysmenorrhea, Dr. Dina Abadi Bavil, the lead scientist said, "Given the scores obtained on the lifestyle questionnaire, significant differences were observed between the groups with and without dysmenorrhea in terms of eating behavior (p=0.008), physical activity (p=0.011), stress (p=0.041), and social relationships".

These results clearly suggested that a healthy diet and lifestyle play important roles in the prevention
and treatment of dysmenorrhea

Ginger (Zingiber officinale) or ginger root, the second superfood used for thousands of years by mankind, is the genus Zingiber, belonging to the family Zingiberaceae, native to Tamil.

The root has been used in traditional and Chinese medicine to treat dyspepsia, gastroparesis, constipation, edema, difficult urination, colic, etc.

On findings of a natural ingredient or whole food for the prevention and treatment of dysmenorrhea in the replacement of conventional medicine without inducing side effects, researchers examine the effects of ginger on primary dysmenorrhea, through searching the database of medical literature online.

Six selected studies were reviewed by 2 authors independently.

Ginger appeared more effective for reducing pain severity than placebo.

Ginger was found as effective as those of mefenamic acid (an NSAID).

The finding point to one conclusion, oral ginger could be an effective treatment for menstrual pain in dysmenorrhea.

Dr. Daily JW, the lead scientists in another search to find the evidence of ginger for treating primary dysmenorrhea launched an investigation by looking into the database of 12 medical libraries.

Seven met specific selection criteria were included in the review.

Four of the RCTs compared the therapeutic efficacy of ginger with a placebo during the first 3-4 days of the menstrual cycle and were included in the meta-analysis.
The results of the in-depth differentiation showed that ginger processes a significant effect in reducing Pain Visual Analogue Scale (PVAS) in subjects having primary dysmenorrhea.

Six RCTs out of 7 exhibited low to moderate of the risk of bias.

These results of the RCTs strongly indicated the suggestive evidence for the effectiveness of 750-2000 mg ginger powder during the first 3-4 days of the menstrual cycle for primary dysmenorrhea.
