It happens to ladies. You know. That "thing" that doesn't happen to guys. Let's call that thing a period. Because that is what it is called.
SPOILER ALERT: This blog is about my period so read on if you so dare.
I get cramps. Bad. Once I had to go to the ER it was so bad. I was told I needed a blood transfusion. Us females walk around with an OPEN WOUND while we are getting groceries. Hemorrhaging while greeting the neighbor. Losing BLOOD and still having the ability to sleep at night. What I am saying is women are badass warriors.
Women of the world, fear no more. I found the 100% natural cure to cramps.
Becks album, "Morning phase." Hear me out.
I just bought a pretty nice portable wireless bluetooth speaker to listen to tunes. It's better than my car radio so I brought it with me when I drove. I had it on my lap when I started the record and the vibration helped me. When I realized it I put it on my stomach. EVERY TRACK helped. The kick of the bass. The string sections. The whole album has a beautiful pulse and resonance.
This is the power of vibration. Which is the power of music. I was a Music Therapist for over a decade and time and time again I have seen so many elements of music help heal. Not just emotionally. Physically. Cognitively. Scientifically.
So the next time you're saddling old rusty, put on the album, close your eyes and let a man make your period less traumatic.
