Female hormonal imbalance can be treated with combination of cleansing and rejuvenation by adopting natural food recipes and practicing simple yoga postures to bring the endocrine system in rhythm.
Tips for Common Menstrual Disorders
Three most common menstrual disorders are:
• Excess menstruation
• Absence of menstruation
• Less menstruation
To get rid of this menstrual disorder, drink a glass of hot water after mixing one table spoon lemon juice and one teaspoon ginger juice and one table spoon pure honey together twice a day. You should start drinking this, two days before your menstrual cycle starts. Take it four times a day during periods. This magic drink will relive you from the pain and uneasiness by cleaning the uterus and fallopian tubes and gradually it will discipline the abnormalities in the monthly cycle as well.
Less menstruation is caused due to lack potassium, Vitamin B and Vitamin C. Flatulence and acidity also disturbs the period and causes discomfort. To avoid this discomfort drink watermelon, sweet lime, musk melon or orange juice along with one table spoon honey and juice of basil, ginger and mint leaves two times a day.
Absence of periods which is mainly caused due to psychological problems can be treated with natural therapies like acupressure, steam bath or hydro therapy.
