I heard someone said before “I don’t know what’s worse than these cramps or the urge to kill everyone around me”. LOL Ok so ladies we all know that the worst days of the month is when our ovaries feel like they’re being mutilated by a cheese grater! Dysmenorrhea is a common thing and it’s either we resort to a can of chocolates and Coke or Mefenamic Paracetamol. Fear no more, because there is an all natural napkin available in the Philipipines now that doesn’t only zap dysmenorrhea but improves the overall reproductive system! (Even helps you conceive if you’re trying to)
What’s really in our sanitary napkins?
Do you know that your ordinary sanitary napkins contains dioxins, synthetic fibers and petrochemical additives equivalent to four plastic bags! We all know that these chemicals (such as BPA and BPS) when made into plastic are definite carcinogens! Phthalates — which give paper tampon applicators that smooth feel and finish — are known to dysregulate gene expression, and DEHP may lead to multiple organ damage. So yes, you can agree with me that our grandmothers (and our great grandmothers) are LUCKY enough to just use regular clothes for their menstrual flow! Furthermore to give these napkins a cute look, they need to bleached with chlorine. Studies show that dioxin collects in your fatty tissues, and according to a draft report by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), dioxin a serious public health threat that has no “safe” level of exposure! Published reports show that even low or trace levels of dioxins may be linked to:
- Abnormal tissue growth in the abdomen and reproductive organs
- Abnormal cell growth throughout the body
- Immune system suppression
- Hormonal and endocrine system disruption
No wonder the plethora of cervical diseases lately and the increase in number of infertility amongst women!

Review of JCPremiere Kpads Pantyliners Anion
I stumbled upon K-Pads All Natural Napkin while I was browsing JCPremiere’s array of organic supplements. According to my supplier, there were testimonials that these napkins are instrumental to even conceiving a child! Ordering them online was easy as a breeze because they’re powered by Shopinas. (http://jcpremiere.shopinas.com) While researching about it I saw a lot of sellers, some are selling at much lower prices, but then again, I would only buy from the one that is multi-verified. Shopinas has strict standards when it comes to the verification and authenticity of its sellers. I would rather buy from a legit seller than risk getting fake products.
So, these babies arrived the next day. (Shipping is 2-3 days in the Philippines) I’ve always ordered a decent amount because they’re always OUT OF STOCK. I’ve been using this for a few months already. And I can say…it feels “airy” hahaha. There’s no peppermint in it, but there’s this feeling of coolness when you wear it. Rest assured, I didn’t get any menstrual cramps except on the first day! And it isn’t as torturing as before.
The K-Pads promise to stop dysmenorrhea. The negative ion strip is believed to increase energy, enhance immunity, regulate, lessen heavy periods, balance hormones, improve your mood and kill bacteria causing odor. I’m really not sure if it’s placebo, but the pain lessened day by day. The K-Pads also promises to:
- It helps reduce irritation and remove odor
- Accelerate oxygen circulation between the private part.
- Helps release negative ions up to 6100/cm3
- Can absorb and hold liquid up to 120-150 ml
- 155mm in length
According to JCPremiere folks the napkin is so clean you can even eat it because it is biodegradable and extremely safe. As you can see, they also have a 3 year expiry date.
Quick fact: What are negative ions? Negative ions are oxygen atoms charged with an extra electron. They are naturally created in nature by the effects of water, air, sunlight and the Earth’s inherent radiation. They can be found in waterfalls, running water, dewy plants, beach waves etc. Negative ions clear the air of dust, mold spores, pollen, pet dander, odors, cigarette smoke, bacteria and viruses. Scientists found a way to mimic these ions and make them available in anything.
Free Pap Smear Kit
A pack comes with these Vagina Health Test to check if you have inflammation. Looks pretty handy to me especially if you have no time to go on a periodic basis to get your vajajay checked. 😉 [Caution: Unauthorized use and/or duplication of pictures and content without express and written permission from this site’s owner is strictly prohibited.

Although cloth napkins are still the ideal and safest, I don’t think it works for busy people like me. I am still constantly looking for organic napkins here in the country. This one is the closest so far. Unlike other leading brands that use recycled materials like, plastic,rubberized material, industrial paste, silica and bleached recycled paper, K-Pads claims to be a safe sanitary product that’s chlorine-free, food grade and is made of biodegradable materials. Even Aubrey Miles is a huge fan of it. (Photos here and here)I’m still willing to explore more options and will report back to you. Meanwhile, a friend of mine who was trying to conceive for almost 8 years, suddenly got pregnant trying these out. Maybe it’s just a placebo effect or something. But who knows how powerful these negative ions are?
