My monthly cycle lasts long. I experience heavy bleeding and then heavy white discharge throughout month. Also having multiple fibroids in uterus. Doctor advised laser surgery to get rid of fibroids which will eventually help in having normal periods. But I want to opt for natural remedies. I feel anaemic and tired all the time. I have given up non veg and diary products totally for past 1 year and not a fan of packaged foods either. Can you pls advice something?

Hello Kiran,

With a proper intake of dietary things, especially iron and Vitamin C, the intake will help in both controlling of your bleeding as well as dealing with your anaemia. Fibroids are formed due to the accumulation of toxins in our body which results in this lump, adopting a natural lifestyle will help in dealing with fibroid.

Sources like legumes, green leafy vegetables, dates, jaggery when added with sources of vitamin C like green chilies, sprouts, sweet potatoes help in overall absorption of iron, this will help in regularising your menstrual cycle. Magnesium again which are sources like almonds, walnuts, and seeds help in dealing with fibroids.

Other home remedies you can depend on is consuming cinnamon tea, as cinnamon helps in controlling bleeding during the heavy bleeding time.

Hope my suggestion will help you.

Thank you

Hi,

It is great that you understand the need to change your food and have removed dairy, animal foods and packed and processed foods. But equally important are other lifestyle changes. This includes taking care of your sleep, physical activity, and stress levels. Let us understand the working of the human body in this regard.

In mature females, every month the pituitary gland which is located at the base of the brain produces 2 female sex hormones. These hormones work in such a way to create a balance in the body which leads to either fertilization or if not fertilized leads to the monthly menstrual cycle. Estrogen and progesterone are hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle. If there is a hormonal imbalance in the body it leads to PCOS/PCOD. In this condition, a cyst or an abnormal growth in the uterus develops. This happens when over a period of time, the body is unable to eliminate the toxins from the body and they accumulate and form cysts. The cysts can dissolve when the right lifestyle choices are made. This includes maintaining the right body weight, physical activity, and healthy lifestyle changes. Hormonal imbalance in the body occurs when the body is under constant high periods of stress. This releases the hormone cortisol, which impacts the functioning of other hormones like estrogen and progesterone. Due to this constant high levels of stress, the brain gets the signal to store excess fat and slow the body's metabolism down. Lifestyle changes would help solve your health issues.

  • Removal of all animal foods, including dairy, helps in reduction in the toxin load from the system.
  • Include lots of raw vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. They all contain essential vitamins and minerals for the normal functioning of the body.
  • Try consuming plenty of vegetable juices and fruits till afternoon. This helps the body in eliminating the toxins which have been built up over a period of time.
  • Avoid excess of tea, coffee. This also triggers the production of cortisol. With this, the body gets a signal to store fat. Also tea and coffee hinder the absorption of iron in the body.
  • Exposure to sunshine and proper rest and sleep are also of prime importance. They release happy hormones, and in a relaxed state, the body can repair and heal.
  • Manage stress either by some physical activity or deep breathing. This calms the body down. This helps the body to understand that there is no urgency and it can repair and heal.
  • Adequate sleep. The body repairs and heals during sleep.

Hi Kiran

Periods are regulated by hormones - estrogen & progesterone. If there is toxic overload on the body, it can prevent the hormones from performing their routine functions. The toxic overload can happen due to stress, lack of sleep, inadequate hydration, high intake of acidic foods, etc. Our Natural Health Coach can look into your routine in a more comprehensive way and give you an action plan. Shifting to a natural lifestyle will also help you deal with all your other health issues. Let us know if you are interested, this coaching will be for a fee. You can explore our Nature-Nurtures Program for the same.
