What can we do for hot flashes?


Some good poses for gently opening up the front body to allow energy to flow, (especially the pelvic area) are Supta Badda Konasana, or reclining bound angle, and a gentle reclining supported back bend. For cramps its good to stay in these poses 5-10 min.
Meditation is good for crabbiness, and some good vinyasa flow sequences really help to aid the body in ridding itself of any excess hormones (especially if standing twists are incorporated).


I think the author was suggesting that if we have a balanced diet, regular exercise, and average amounts of sleep in our daily lives then we wont have to worry about horrible PMS when it's the time of the month.


are there specific poses that would relieve the cramping? please share the know! :)


i don't see any solutions to this though. Can you list the natural remedies that you think would help alleviate not only PMS, cramping, etc...but would also be beneficial during our monthly cycle?
