Parsley is one of the most effective natural remedies for the most common menstrual problem – cramps.  Not only does parsley help to completely eradicate cramps, but it also helps to regulate the monthly cycle.  This is possible due to a component in parsley called apiol, which is actually a component of the female sex hormone estrogen.  You can ingest more parsley (and thus more apiol) by drinking parsley juice.  Studies have found that this is most effective when drunk as a juice in two ounce quantities mixed with equal parts cucumber, carrot and beet juices.  Parsley is also recognized as an excellent natural cure for cramps after pregnancy while the mother is breast feeding.  This is because both the mother and baby are provided with a wide range of nutrients and vitamins.  If you choose to use parsley as a natural remedy for treating the menstrual problems of cramps and irregularity, be sure that you drink the parsley juice every day and drink it as soon as it is freshly made.  If you make it and refrigerate it in advance, you'll find that the parsley will lose some of its natural nutritional properties as it sits for a long period of time.
