I am 100% against animal testing for any reason, but I do tend to suffer from the odd headache now and again, or menstrual cramps. They can become really bad sometimes and with not even thinking about it I would take a pain killer and then suddenly realize what an animal went through so it could be produced. Needless to say I felt really bad.

My question is, what can I take that is cruelty-free and natural that will cure (or at least lessen) pains and aches?

Help is much appreciated! :]
