Heating pads helps a lot. Don't allow her to drink a lot of cold liquids. She should drink hot liquids instead. Most of the time cramps comes from blood clots. Heating pads and drinking hot liquids help with the clots. You can get her the kind that she can wear all day, even to school.

I am 37 and I still have the worst gut wrench, knee hitting cramps. All of these ladies are right I do all of these things and the combination helps.Within 12 hrs after they start they leave.So please have her do all of them.The day or so before make her go for walks or some type of exercise, heating pad on lower back a nice cup of hot (I have to have mine sweetend as well) tea, mine isn't flavored but my daughter likes the sleepytime tea, and a coupl(two) non asprin. Yes that is a pill but it help thin her blood just a little and help make the cramps go away. I only take two at the time my cramps are the worst and no more after( I don't like or believe in pill either, but in this case they do help alot).

i give my daughter (14) green tea she adds sugar of course but it works. it also helps her keep thin and healthy and she likes that. it is caffine free.
Sorry great ideas but green tea is not caffeine free, a common misconception.You can get decaffienated green tea

Hi, If you are able... take your daughter to a Naturopath. I"m in Australia & some of the Naturopaths here have various natural solutions to help. Kinesiology (I believe) may also be of some assistance. If the pain is very severe, you should have your daughter checked by your GP or a Gynecologist to make certain there is nothing more serious causing the pain

My daughter has never taken anything and she seems to cramp more then I ever did but kids now a days are not as active as we wants was.. Tea does not work for her as much as the exercises Hope she gets better may God Bless you

Pure Camomille is a naturally caffeine free herbal tea that soothes and relaxes. I even have it for myself. When babies are restless and fussy europeans make them this tea with fennel in it to calm them. It is not expensive and 100% drug free.

i agree, pills can be over done. so this is what i do when i have cramps, use a heating pad or hot water bottle. the heat helps relax the muscles. drink lots of water it keeps the muscles hrydrated. drink rasberry tea, its good for the whole system and you can get it from the sleepy time teas at walmart and drink one cup a day. i hope something helps.
