Preventing diseases from affecting your day-to-day lives
Menstrual disorders

A menstrual disorder is defined as any abnormal condition affecting a person's menstrual cycle. Most women go through their menstrual cycles with little or no problems. Their menstrual cycle runs like clockwork every month, producing minor irritation. However, menstruation problems afflict a large number of women. They are experiencing physical and/or emotional symptoms right before and during menstruation. From excessive bleeding and missed periods to uncontrollable mood swings, these symptoms can severely interrupt a woman's life.

Treatment in Ayurveda

  • Ayurvedic treatment for menstruation disorders begins with vata-dosha correction.
  • Avoid circumstances that contribute to vata-dosha vitiation. 
  • It is essential to avoid intensive exercise during menstruation.
  • Avoid eating fried, hot and spicy dishes.
  • Depending on the nature of the condition, treatment may involve nourishing and toning herbs as well as revitalising treatments.
  • In addition to internal treatment, cleansing procedures can be performed to eliminate the accumulated toxins that are the root cause of the sickness.
  • Specialized massages, such as Udvartana, are useful in managing body weight, particularly in PCOS patients.
  • Diet, meditation and yoga are extremely effective because stress plays a significant influence in many conditions.
