Yazmina Jade Adler, a 26-year-old woman from Melbourne, claims smearing menstrual blood on her face helps her get rid of her severe period pain.
Yazmina once suffered from excruciating cramps and was advised by her doctor to take pain killers.
The 26-year-old woman said she met a shamanic womb woman who told her to connect with her blood, and she actually did.
When Yazmina appeared on Medicine or Myth on SBS, she claimed that her cramps were gone when she started to meditate and apply blood on her third eye 10 months ago.
She said, ‘I’ve been using this remedy now for about 10 months to a year and my cramping has gone.’
She was being interviewed by renowned medical experts that were led by Dr. Charlie Teo, a neurosurgeon.
Yazmina brought out a small jar that had her menstrual blood.
She said, ‘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. ‘
She added, ‘By doing this, it has relieved the discomfort.’
Yazmina stores the blood in a menstrual cup for her monthly ceremony. During the ceremony, she placed one hand on her heart and the other hand on her womb.
Yazmina said, ‘I’m connecting those spaces and I just breathe into the body. I would normally connect with the blood, just by doing that, it instantly does something to me.’
She added, ‘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.’
The 26-year-old said she wants to share her unique remedy so she could help other women get rid of painful cramps they have during their menstruation.
She said, ‘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.’
Dr. Ginni Mansberg was intrigued when she saw Yazmina performing her ritual.
Dr. Ginni 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 then told the experts about how she tried everything to get off her period pain.
Yazmina then met a shamanic womb woman.
Yazmina said 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”.
She added,’Because women, we are shamed for bleeding, it’s a sanitary thing.’
