Anion: A Natural Pain Relief for Dysmenorrhea

Dysmenorrhea. It hurts. Really.

On a positive note, the monthly period is a reminder of every woman’s wonderful gift of life-giving ability. In layman's term, it's Mother Nature's way of saying "You're not pregnant. Have a nice day."

During menstruation, the excessive level of hormone prostaglandin makes uterus squeeze really hard and arteries get blocked, thus, causing the pain. Simply put, it's just a woman's body laying a freaking egg and if it doesn't get used, her body will just rip down the walls inside her uterus. No big deal. Boys, it's like IMS (Irritable Male Syndrome, the male version of PMS) due to the hormone cycle changes. Just imagine someone kicking your balls every second, 5 days straight.

That being said, I'm pretty sure men would understand why red flag days can impede women's mood and performance, especially when painful menstrual cramps take a toll on them.

So during this time of the month, women (especially hardworking moms..aherm!) deserve some "me-time" too! Remember, ladies, you can't give love without loving and taking good care of yourself first. Aside from a warm bath, exercise, a diet high in calcium and antioxidants, tap into the pain reducing abilities of anion.

While women certainly cannot put a stop to their monthly visitor, Anion surely can make you feel fresh, clean, and can reduce the pain from having dysmenorrhea.

Speaking of Anion, I'm so glad I attended Jeunesse Anion Bloggers' Sparty at Make Me Blush Nail Spa and Beauty Lounge. Jeunesse Anion Executives Tina Antonio and MJ Huang discussed the benefits of anion strips in feminine pads and there was a demo of the superior absorbency of Jeunesse Anion sanitary pad.

Jeunesse Anion Marketing Communications Manager Tina Antonio shared why Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkin and Liners should be on top of mind of every woman for its health wonders and uniquely crafted 7 layers of protection during the period.

That green strip in Jeunesse Anion Pads contains anions that bind with harmful cations produced by toxins and pollution, inhibiting the growth of odor-causing bacteria, preventing skin irritation and inflammation, and restoring balance in your pH levels.

Also known as negative ions which are naturally found in lighting, ocean surf, waterfalls, and mountain air among other sources, research shows that it also improves alertness and relaxes people who are in severe pain.

 And guess what? It's very effective! I've tried it and I no longer suffer from dysmennorhea. Plus, I can bask in that fresh and healthy feeling all day!

Available in five variants--ultra-day pad, day pad non-wing, ultra night pad, all-night, and panty liner, each Jeunesse pad is not only made of the softest sterilized cotton, it also comes with an anion strip which helps to alleviate menstrual discomforts like dysmenorrhea and bacteria causing odor, plus specially-designed 7 layers of protection to ensure comfort during your period.

Registered Dietitian, Ms. Cheshire Que, also Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkin and Liners' wellness expert Cheshire Que, RND, RN, and RDN shared some expert tips and tricks from combating the bloat, how to eat mindfully, control cravings, smart snacking techniques, and weight management.

On top of these, she also shared simple breathing techniques guaranteed to relax and relieve when slew of stress become an overdrive during the time of the month.

What I learned:

  • Limit your intake of processed foods such as canned meats or cheese products during your period. 
  • Smart snacking 101: Unless you're a competitive eater, there's really no reason to scarf down your (or your kid's) meals. After all, doing the opposite (that is, slowing down) is likely better for your waistline. Note to self: Be mindful of eating my kiddo's leftovers or snacks! :)
  • Mindful eating techniques can help prevent weight gain in women, even without dieting.
  • Make meals flavorful.

While splurging on a half day of mani-pedi pampering, we were treated with Three Sisters' Restaurant of Pasig's newest breakfast menu, delicious selection of breakfast finger food from Q Provisions catering with freshly brewed, premium coffee from Craft Revolution.

Plus, I also got the antidote to overeating! MealEnders is the best way to curb my craving for something sweet before I sleep. It has low sugar with only 15 calories and it's really effective! I really love the chocolate mint flavor.

Human Nature Category Manager Diane Basino also talked about Human Nature Natural Feminine Wash with Soothing aloe vera and chamomile. Jeunesse Anion Napkin + Human Heart Nature's Natural Feminine Wash = Perfect combo, designed to ease the worries of your red days! :)

Huge thanks to Jeunesse Anion for a fun, enlightening, and prettyfying experience. So glad I had the chance to have a little "pampering" so I can be the best mom I can possibly be. #PositivelyBetter I also went home with a loot filled with Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkin and Liners, Yoko Scrub Salt, Calcium-Cee Vitamins, MealEnders, Wheatgrass CAN supplement, Bubbleman Dish Washing Liquid, and Human Nature's Natural Feminine wash formulated for the red days.
