It gives you a little reminder every day that’s like, “Hey! It’s not a bad life, it’s just your Depression.”
Since I nearly died, I haven’t been able to take ibuprofen. Taking the drug (or any NSAIDs/steroids) could bring back my illness, so I’ve needed to manage without it. I used to take ibuprofen like it was candy for headaches and period cramps. However, since changing my diet, I’ve had barely any headaches at all. Still, here’s a quick and dirty guide to living without ibuprofen (for all you junkies out there).
What is one thing that every person in modern society has in common? A magnesium deficiency!!!! Cool, right? Not quite.
If you have a random headache, muscle pains that occur for no reason, muscle twitching or spasms, chronic fatigue, you may simply have a magnesium deficiency. Women, especially, become magnesium deficient during their periods. If you’ve wondered why nearly all women crave chocolate during their period or PMS, it’s because chocolate contains high levels of magnesium. Our cravings actually mean something! When you crave a certain food, it usually means your body needs a nutrient in that food, so listen to your body and give into your cravings!
It’s no secret that pads and tampons are harmful to the environment. If women generally use around 3 to 5 tampons per day, a woman will use about 30 or so tampons per month. That’s 360 tampons a year – one for every single day. So, what can we do about it? You can’t recycle tampons and they take forever to degrade. No one is really sure how long it takes to decompose, but with the population of the world being around 60% female, it doesn’t really matter. Tampons and pads are going to be in landfills forever.
