Ayurvedic practice for healthy menstruation

Menstruation is an important gift and a blessing for women. Every month, women have a unique opportunity to  purify their body, and according to Ayurveda, cultivate physical and divine creative energy for the month ahead. It  is like pulling back the bow to launch into life and the month ahead with vitality. 

Recommendations and rituals for the menstrual cycle:
Take time off. REST

During the period of menstruating, activities are best reduced to what is essential so that the body, mind and blood flow can reserve all its energy in the pelvic floor.

Resting the physical body in regard to exercise, movements and travel, ushers the downward flow of energy and blood. Resting the mind from activities like studying, mental work and stress allows the energy and blood flow to move in a downward direction.

This is the time of the month to schedule less work. If one is unable to rest for the whole period, one should take rest and follow this protocol for at least the first 1-2 days.

A time to go inward

The menstrual period is a gifted time to naturally slow down. Attune yourselves to go more inward. Maintain positivity during this period. This helps balance the colon, bladder and hormones.

Light diet

Simple warm, cooked and light food is advised during the menstrual period. Avoid heavy foods like meat, deep fried foods, processed foods, as well as stimulants like coffee and alcohol. Avoid cold foods or drinks as this will tighten and hamper the circulatory system.

Milk rice is a great option (like a rice porridge), especially for those woman who have uncomfortable periods.

Retreating from the normal routine and everyday activities and stressors are necessary so that you may remain mindful of the great experience of shedding the lining of the uterus (endometrium) so that it can be renewed once more.
