Ayurveda and menstrual care

Information on how to take care of your hair, how to take care of your teeth, or how to mainatain body  is found everywhere. Along with them, it is also necessary that someone teaches us on how to take care of ourselves during menstrual cycle.

Ayurveda gives ample knowledge  on how to do this. Here menstrual  flow is considered  the by product of the first dhatu (tissue) in our body, that is the rasa dhatu – the plasma tissue.

Ayurveda consider menstrual cycle as a monthly cleanser for all women. So this is the time a woman needs care and rest which rejuvenates her completely.

Often a women experiences irregularities or disturbances in the cycle. She may experience the following difficulties.

  1. Excess and heavy bleeding
  2. Periods are longer or shorter than normal 2-7 days/
  3. Bleeding occur outsides the correct 21-35 day cycle.
  4. Sometimes absence of bleeding.

  2. Emotional disturbances
  3. Dietary habits – less nutritious food intake or excess junk food.
  4. Excess exercise
  5. Conditions like anemia, thyroid hormones imbalance.
  6. Sexual activity
