Bring to a boil, 1 and a 1/2 inch piece of ginger(grated and pounded) and 2 tsp of fenugreek/methi seeds in 2.5 cups of water. Let this simmer for 5 minutes, covered. This makes 2 servings. Then cool this slightly and pour through a sieve into a cup. Drink this 2-3 times as needed. You could add a tsp of sugar. This did wonders for my daughter’s cramps. I also, soaked raw fenugreek/methi seeds in water for about 6 hours and got her to drink this water.
