Hello Mann,

Galactorrhea is a milky nipple discharge unrelated to the normal milk production of breastfeeding. Galactorrhea itself is not a disease, but it can be a sign of an underlying problem. It usually occurs in women even in those who never had children or after menopause. The main reason behind this is hormonal imbalances. Certain medications, some drugs and birth control pills may also lead to an imbalance of hormones and result in galactorrhea. 
It is very essential to follow a correct lifestyle along with the diet to maintain the circadian rhythm and in turn the hormonal balance. 
Here are some tips that will help to maintain the hormonal balances. 


  • Start the day with 3 to 4 glasses of warm water on an empty stomach. This will help to flush out the toxins from the body. 
  • Have fresh, seasonal, and locally available fruits and vegetables in your diet. 
  • Include salads, sprouts, nuts, and beans in your diet. 
  • Have a light, easy to digest breakfast like a bowl of sprouts and soaked raisins and other dry fruits. 
  • Drink freshly prepared homemade fruit juices. 
  • Drink coconut water. 
  • Use cold-pressed oil in place of refined oils. 
  • Have whole grains like barley, millets, oats, etc.


Regular exercise is also important for improved blood circulation and metabolism.

  • Take a brisk morning walk of at least 30min. 
  • Do 12 sets of suryanamaskar. 
  • Perform tada asana, trikona asana, vriksha asana, etc.
  • Do pranayam regularly for 15-20min, specially anulom-vilom and kapalbhati pranayam. 
  • Take sunrays early in the morning. 


Sleep is equally as important as our diet. It affects the circadian rhythm and in turn the hormonal balance. So, take proper sleep of at least 7-8 hours daily. Sleep early at night and also wake up early in the morning. Read books before sleeping to improve the quality of sleep. 

Thank you

Dear Mann,

We do understand your concern about health issues. We would like to tell you that women health-related issues such as galactorrhea, PCOD or thyroid, etc. are often linked to hormonal imbalance. We would like to draw your attention to the Nature Cure perspective on the same.

Nature Cure believes that the root cause of most diseases/health conditions is Toxaemia- the accumulation of toxins within the body.  While some toxins are an output of metabolism, others are added due to unnatural lifestyle- wrong food habits, lack of rest and stress. Nature has equipped us with the measures of eliminating the toxins on a regular basis - through breathing, stool, urine, sweat, mucus depositions in nose, eyes and genitals etc. Whenever there is toxic overload due to insufficient or faulty elimination our body tries to throw out the toxins in the form of Flu, Loose-motions, cough, cold, fever, skin rashes and acute pain. Defying the body’s demand for rest and/ or suppressing the discomforting symptoms by quick-fixes like medicines, leads to an imbalance in the body. If there is a toxic overload on the body, it can prevent the hormones from performing their routine functions.

One can reverse this state of imbalance by getting back in sync with the natural laws of living. 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  Natural Health Coaching Program for the same.  

We encourage you to take charge of your health and  be inspired by Women’s Health stories in our Journeys section - click here

Wish you all the best for your good health!
