A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Amenorrhea
I had a question the other day about amenorrhea.
Amenorrhea is the medical term for absence of periods.
Women normally don’t menstruate before puberty, during pregnancy, and after menopause.
If a woman doesn’t get her period when she normally should, it may be the symptom of a treatable medical condition.
There are 2 types of amenorrhea: primary amenorrhea and secondary amenorrhea.
Primary amenorrhea is when a young woman hasn’t had her first period by the age of 16.
Secondary amenorrhea is when a woman who’s had normal menstrual cycles stops getting her monthly period for 3 or more months.
Amenorrhea can be caused by any number of changes in the organs, glands, and hormones involved in menstruation.
Possible causes of primary amenorrhea include:
>Failure of the ovaries.
>Problems in the central nervous system or pituitary gland.
>Poorly formed reproductive organs.
In many cases, the cause of primary amenorrhea isn’t known.
Common causes of secondary amenorrhea include:
>Stopping the use of birth control.
>Some birth control methods, like Depo-Provera.
Other causes of secondary amenorrhea include:
>Extreme weight loss.
>Sudden weight gain or being very overweight.
>Hormonal imbalance due to polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
>Thyroid gland disorders.
>Tumors on the ovaries or brain (rare).
A woman who’s had her uterus or ovaries removed will also stop menstruating.
To deal with amenorrhea it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily.
*Burdock root, dong quai, and red raspberry leaf help to balance hormones.
*Blessed thistle, false unicorn root, fennel seed, sarsaparilla root, and squawvine are also hormone-balancing herbs.
*Eat a diet consisting of 50% raw organic vegetables and fruits and including soy foods. In addition, eat only 100% whole-grain products (no refined flour products) and raw nuts and seeds. A diet rich in legumes and other fiber-rich foods is very important in managing amenorrhea.
*Include “green drinks” made from organic dark green leafy vegetables in your diet.
*Avoid alcohol, caffeine, animal fats, butter, dairy products, fried foods, foods that contain additives, all hardened fats, junk foods or fast foods, red meats, poultry (except organically raised and skinless), refined and processed foods, salt, shellfish, and sugar.
*Fast for 3 days each month before the anticipated beginning of your menstrual period. Use purified water and fresh live juices.
*If you have any pain, use a heating pad, hot water bottles, or a hot bath to help relieve it. The warmth relaxes the muscles that cramp and cause pain.
*Daily moderate exercise like walking or stretching is beneficial.
*Increase Kegel exercises (tightening pelvic muscles).
*Consider a liver and/or colon cleanse.
*Consider acupuncture, energy medicine techniques, hydrotherapy, etc.
*Address any emotional issues.
*Have a chiropractic assessment.
*Eliminate toxic exposures, both food and environment.
*Eliminate excess weight; maintain a healthy weight.
*Understand your medications and possible side-effects.
*If you follow a vegetarian lifestyle or low caloric intake, it’s essential to ensure proper intake of protein, B vitamins and essential fats.
*Strong cravings for chocolate may indicate an increased need for VitalMag.
*Consider having thyroid function checked.
*Maintain balanced blood sugars.
