With being a woman comes the territory of periods, and with periods can come cramps. Personally, I get some pretty gnarly ones at times. The type that feel paralyzing and you can’t move out of the one and only position that relieves them - or worse - you can’t even find a position to relieve them!  And If you’re also like me, you get a craving for some chocolate during your moontime!

So this month I tried something new, I used some medicated chocolate to help ease the tension and it was great! Not only did I satisfy that sweet tooth with a healthier-than-most snack, but I was able to be more comfortable during that time of the month when things aren’t the most comfortable.
