How to Get Rid of Cramps in 1-2 Min Naturally
There are countless people out there who regularly suffer from different types of cramps (spasms). However, the ones that can be considered as the most common and painful ones are spasms in muscles (i.e. legs or feet), stomach cramps, and intense menstrual cramping (because of periods). Outlined here is a simple breathing technique on ‘how to get rid of cramps’. It was initially developed by more than 150 Soviet and Russian MDs, who successfully applied this method to thousands of their patients. Just about every person who tried this method stated that it helped overcome their suffering in a mere 1-2 minutes. Through this technique, it is easily possible for you to relieve severe menstrual cramps, leg-foot and stomach spasms along with many other different types of cramps. One may also apply this natural home remedy during night-time sleep.
Steps to follow to learn how to get rid of muscle spasms
To get started with learning how to stop muscle spasms, you initially need to relax all the muscles of your body, including those in the affected area. Next, exhale usually, pinch your nose and hold your breath till the time that you start experiencing a bit of discomfort. However, you need to strictly breathe via the nose only right after the breath hold.
Upon releasing the nose after this period of breath holding, don’t take a large inhalation. Instead, take a smaller inhalation using the stomach or abdominal muscles only. Now immediately relax all your body muscles and take another small inhalation through the abdomen and relax completely once again to exhale. With every breath, you need to inhale a small amount of air – about 20-30% less than your usual breathing.
These inhalations can only be made via the nose, and through the abdominal muscles. Then relax all the muscles of your body completely. The basic aim here is that of the maintenance of air hunger or shortage of air for about 1-2 minutes. Through this breathing technique, it would be easily possible for you to stop or completely eliminate cramping 2-10 times faster than by using conventional technique or by doing nothing. Severe spasms might require a period of breath retraining so that your automatic breathing pattern becomes lighter and slower so as to enhance body oxygenation.
Note: If you are using this breathing exercise before going to bed at night for spasms in feet, legs, stomach or those that are triggered due to severe menstrual period, you would need to lie on the left side or on your chest.

How can this breathing technique assist in getting rid of cramps?
Because of this exercise that allows you to get rid of cramps, increased levels of CO2 suppress increased, or rather abnormal excitability of neurons, improves the delivery of oxygen and blood to the affected area, and restores normal transmission of signals in the nervous network that controls the working of muscle cells. This same mechanism applies to muscle spasms because of severe menstrual periods, and those that are triggered during sleep at night.
Although it is possible for one to reduce or stop most muscle, stomach and leg cramps through this breathing technique in 1-2 minutes, you would to put in a whole lot more time, and achieve higher body-oxygen levels (nearly 30-35 seconds) to eliminate cramping that is caused by severe menstrual periods.
How to get rid of cramps and period cramps permanently
For a majority of people, the exercise detailed above isn’t enough in terms of getting rid of cramps forever. However, here are three steps that are going to help you achieve so:
Solution # 1
People who have a poor diet simply cannot get rid of cramps because of a lack of a certain yet unknown chemical substance that is found in vegetables and has the potential to make cramps disappear. The vegetables in which it is found are dark – usually green or brown – like lentils, broccoli, beans (not those found in jars or cans) and possible leafy greens including green or red lettuces, spinach etc. Start consuming them and monitor the effects in 1-2 days.
Solution # 2
For many people (not all), electrical grounding of the body to Earth has the potential to fix cramps as well. If truth be told, cramps were rather rare in the past because people back then had a barefoot lifestyle. This basically made it possible for them to acquire free electrons from Earth. On the contrary, just about all contemporary people possess a substantial positive electric charge, which indicates electron deficiency.
Solution # 3 – the BEST cramp-killer
Along with the two solutions mentioned above, achieve over 30-35 seconds for the body-oxygen test so that you can attain better sleep, fitness, digestion and overall health.
With all these home remedies, you can get rid of your muscle cramps in legs, feet and thigh, naturally and fast for good.
1. If you suffer from conditions like anxiety, hypertension, panic attacks or migraine headaches, then it is possible for you to experience certain negative effects because of holding your breath for too long. For this reason, just apply a safer version of the same exercise without holding your breath: start breathing 10% less than usual, and focus on accumulating air hunger.
2. If you aren’t in an optimal state of health, your breath hold is going to be rather short due to lower levels of body-oxygen. Your breathing pattern is also going to be frequent during this reduced breathing exercise. As you are hyperventilating 24/7, this is totally normal.
3. Your spasms are going to be more severe and frequent if you suffer from deficiencies in minerals like magnesium, calcium, potassium and sodium.
|Respiratory Frequency||Body-Oxygen Test (morning result)||Chances of cramps|
|More than 20 breaths/min||Less than 20 s||Very possible|
|15-20 breaths/min||20 – 30 s||Possible|
|12-15 breaths/min||30 – 40 s||Very rare|
|12 or less breaths/min||>40 s||Virtually impossible|
