How Does Our Dysmenorrhoea (Painful Periods) Treatment Benefit You?

Dysmenorrhea is a condition in which a woman experiences severe pain and frequent pain during periods. It is caused due to abnormal contractions in the uterus which is due to chemical imbalances in the body. It is also seen in women with medical conditions like endometriosis in which the endometrial tissue implants outside the uterus. The symptoms of Dysmenorrhea include lower back pain, vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, fatigue, fainting, pain in lower abdomen, severe cramps, weakness, etc.
‘Kashtartava’ is the term for Dysmenorrhea in ayurvedic text. The main reason for this condition is the aggravation of Vata and Pitta dosha. Vata is the Dosha that governs the movement of menstrual blood out of the body, according to Ayurveda. Apana vata is a vata that moves downward and out of the pelvic floor. When Apana Vata movement is in the opposite direction for numerous reasons, it produces significant discomfort and cramping. The reasons for disturbance in apana vata are lack of physical exercise, lack of personal hygiene, poor digestion and intake of oily and spicy food.
Treatment of dysmenorrhea according to ayurveda includes therapies like abhyanga, vasti, uttara basti, and virechana. Along with this special herbs are suggested that help in pacifying the effects of doshas and also balancing them. The herbs like shatavari, sukumaram kashayam, ashokarishtam, chandraprava vati and kumaryasava are used to prepare personalized formulations that help in relief from painful symptoms. This line of treatment helps in reversing the effects of dysmenorrhea in a natural way and helps in avoidance of any symptoms in near future.

Understand how we can help you with Dysmenorrhoea

Dysmenorrhea (painful periods):

A woman's life is cyclical. The cycle repeats again every month. Because this is a natural cycle, most women have no problems. However, for a select few, periods are a terrifying experience. This is because of the agony that the lady is experiencing. Dysmenorrhea is the medical term for this ailment. It's also a term for menstruation cramps. When you put in all of your effort and still can't solve your difficulties, it gets difficult. Most individuals with unpleasant periods have two options: high dosages of medications or sobbing. Ayurveda is the most effective treatment for uncomfortable periods.
Menstrual cramps are throbbing or cramping aches that occur throughout the menstrual cycle. In the majority of instances, the discomfort is felt in the lower abdomen. In many cases, it also leads to severe pain in the back and legs, which causes complete discomfort in women.

Types of dysmenorrhea:

  1. Primary dysmenorrhea: Primary dysmenorrhea is defined as discomfort during the period that begins within the first six months after menarche. This is a short-term condition that lasts fewer than 72 hours. There is no known reason for this ailment. These are prostaglandins, which cause primary dysmenorrhea. Which is the source of the discomfort. When the amount of these hormones (prostaglandins) rises, it leads to the intense contraction of the uterine muscles, and it results in pain.
  2. Secondary dysmenorrhea: This disorder develops as a result of a variety of different illnesses. Naturally, there will be no discomfort throughout your periods. Pain, on the other hand, appears as soon as the other sickness emerges. Fibroids, endometriosis, infections, and sexually transmitted illnesses are the disorders. The underlying condition, secondary dysmenorrhea, is the reason. Pain from a uterine fibroid is distinct from pain from endometriosis.

Dysmenorrhea in ayurveda:

‘Kashtartava’ is the term for Dysmenorrhea in ayurvedic text. The main reason for this condition is the aggravation of Vata and Pitta dosha.

Ayurvedic treatment for painful periods/dysmenorrhea:

Ayurveda believes in restoring balance. The more natural we are, the more normal our bodies will act. The same may be said about the eras. When menstrual blood flows freely without obstruction, the uterus does not need to contract hard. And this, naturally, aids in pain relief. Ayurveda suggests "Vata Anulomana" for this. Bringing Vata to its channels is what this entails.
It is critical to correctly diagnose the situation before beginning therapy. You can get advice from our expert on this. You must take the prescribed medications and adhere to the food and lifestyle guidelines.
The therapy lasts for a maximum of three months. In the majority of situations, panchakarma is unnecessary. Only in circumstances when the pain is severe and the problem has persisted for more than 5 years should the patient seek panchakarma treatment. However, this is solely dependent on our physicians' recommendations.
