Many people know the sensations of spasm — as if they are reducing a part of the body, there is a feeling of physical stiffness, "tightness"pain
We are used to suppress these feelings with pills, but in the long run, proper nutrition and herbal infusions help much more effectively.
A spasm can affect the locomotor and skeletal muscles, especially if you overtrained the day before at the gym, but much more problems are caused by spasms of smooth muscles — the one that we have inside and lines the walls of our vessels, intestines and some other hollow organs (for example, the uterus).
The prescription of spasm removal would seem to be simple: from a headache caused by a vascular spasm — an anesthetic pill, from a muscular — anesthetic gel to the affected place, and if it is reduced in the stomach — to drink a pill with drotaverine.
But maybe we can do without pills?
If the leg, the arm, the neck is cramped, the first thing we do is rubbing the sore area. And it is right!
Massage is one of the most effective ways to quickly solve a problem.
The second is the decision according to the principle "fight fire with fire".
If you did stretching without prior warming up, and cramped your leg — you need to continue to stretch, but very carefully and carefully, so as not to injure the muscle even more.
If the press was rocking, and the muscle on the abdomen tightened — to stretch the spasm section even more, hold your breath and hold as much as possible, and then breathe out, sharply relaxing.
And of course, so that the muscles do not reduce (and this is not only during training), you need to eat foods that are rich in potassium.
These are dried apricots, beans, lentils, prunes and other dried fruits, bananas, nuts, potatoes.
In adults, they are associated either with the work of the gastrointestinal tract (it can reduce both the stomach, and the intestines, and the esophagus), or, for women, with cyclical fluctuations (with monthly spasms).
Products and plants antispasmodics can alleviate the situation.
Ensure peace and brew herbal collection: 1 tbsp. l pharmacy chamomile brew and let it brew for an hour. Take 1-2 tbsp. spoonful of infusion every 2 hours during the day. You can drink this infusion and course during the week, if the problem is bothering often.
The motherwort, marjoram, sweet clover, aromas of lemon balm, peppermint and valerian also help against spasms.
Plant foods should prevail in the diet.
If spasms are caused by fermentation in the intestines, vegetables and fruits can be taken in boiled, stewed, baked form. Cabbage and beans should be excluded.
Well remove spasm carrots, onions, honey.
In any case, when cramps in the stomach should not be placed on the belly of a heating pad with heat or cold, so as not to aggravate the situation. After all, any pain in the abdomen is dangerous because some easily disguise themselves as others: pain and spasm during menstruation can be confused with an ectopic pregnancy, and protests of the overcrowded intestine — with appendicitis.
The final diagnosis should be made by a doctor.
Meteorological and people suffering from heart problems, they cause a lot of trouble. After all, the walls of blood vessels are also muscles.
And there can be a lot of problems from vascular spasm: here and heart attacks, if the vessels going to the heart, and migraines, and stroke are affected — if we are talking about the vessels of the brain.
If you feel dizzy, a sharp drop in pressure (and these are symptoms of vascular spasm in the head), consult a doctor.
And while waiting for him, pour a cup of hot tea.
Very sweet tea with ginger is an excellent means of instant help with vasospasm.
A special diet will help reduce the frequency of attacks.
Exclude or reduce to a minimum cost: animal fat, butter, processed meat products (sausages, smoked meats), egg yolks, caviar, offal. Salt replace with lemon juice, spices or sea kale.
Forget about sweets and flour products.
You need to eat as much as possible: raw plant foods — there is a maximum of vitamins and substances that help solve the problem of spasm and which are lost during heat treatment.
These are copper, iodine, calcium, potassium, magnesium, bromine, vitamins of group B. Eat raw carrots, white cabbage, lean on watermelons and melons, pumpkins, add food with parsley, onion and garlic.
Home-made cottage cheese is very useful as a prevention of problems with vessels and muscles.
For prophylaxis and as an adjuvant therapy for spasms of smooth muscles, herbal preparations are prescribed, which include mistletoe, hawthorn, caraway seeds, St. John’s wort, yarrow, arnica.
Chamomile, immortelle, birch buds will help to maintain the elasticity of the walls of blood vessels and hollow organs.
Infusions sweeten with honey (if there is no allergy to it).
