So I just got my first period a few days ago, and ever since then, I've had awful cramps. I know that painkillers are supposed to help, but my family uses homeopathic medicine rather than over-the-counter stuff. So my question is, are there any ways of lessening cramps that don't involve painkillers or other drugs?

My friend told me that dark chocolate is supposed to help and it relaxes the muscles, also a hot water bottle may help

-don't eat to many salty foods
