Yazmina Jade Adler, from Melbourne, was suffering from excruciating period cramps but was advised by doctors to “go on the pill”.
However, the Aussie turned to a different remedy after meeting a shamanic womb woman who encouraged her to “connect” to her blood.
Appearing on SBS’s show Medicine or Myth?, Yazmina claimed she noticed instantly her cramps were gone when she started mediating in a sacred space about a year ago.
She said on the show: “I’ve been using this remedy now for about 10 months to a year and my cramping has gone.”

Yazmina admitted: “Every month, I create a ritual medication space, and I use the blood in a way to connect either through putting it on my hand or anointing it on my third eye.
“By doing this, it has relieved the discomfort.”
Yazmina – who collects her own blood through a menstrual cup for her ceremony – said she would normally place one hand on her heart and the other on her womb.
“I’m connecting those spaces and I just breathe into the body,” Yazmina said.
She continued: “I would normally connect with the blood, just by doing that, it instantly does something to me.
“What I found is taking that time out, actually be with myself, and meditate, connect with my body, it’s like the pain has gone away.”
Yazmina said she wanted to share her remedy to help other women who also suffer from painful period cramps.
“I just want every woman to feel it. I know what women go through, I know that pain and shame, I feel for the women who are struggling with this,” she added.
Dr Ginni Mansberg admitted her first reaction was revulsion but after watching Yazmina perform the ritual, she was intrigued by the remedy.
She said: “Now I see everything that you’re doing, and you’ve got so much peace coming off you, and you’ve converted what was clearly a very distressing, physical situation into something really profoundly beautiful.”
Yazmina concluded: “She [the shamanic womb woman] mentioned the blood to me, and she mentioned connecting to the blood, even just touching it.
“I decided to give it a go, and as soon as I started doing that, it was like it had this profound healing effect of like ‘oh, I don’t need to be shameful of this anymore’.”
