by Ananta Hemp Works Health & Beauty

Being a woman there are times we wish we never had those painful bleeding days. Sometimes it’s really frustrating for the meetings we have missed, trips we have avoided and so much more only for the throbbing pain down there. As Menstruation is a purely hormonal phenomenon the extent of cramps experienced by each individual varies, often depending on the familial history and nutritional status as well. Often certain lifestyle modifications do fire the magic for some, while others still continue to eat through the pain during each cycle.

With uncontrolled pain, many people resolve to popping pills to solve the issue, ignoring the grave complications that awaits them in the future. Menstrual cramps are totally physiological in most conditions, it is only when it shows no chance of subsiding, pathology may be interpreted. Being a part of the modern dynamic world, none of us have the time or patience to loath over menstrual pains. But apart from suffering from them, how can we overcome them? This is where the age of medicinal science, ayurveda comes into play.

Ayurveda and Menstrual cramps

Ayurveda is one branch of science that overlooks the reproductive tissues much beyond adolescence, puberty and pregnancy. Here the menstrual cycle is understood as windows to a woman’s health. By being familiar and in tune with your menstrual cycle you can interpret the doshic imbalance prevailed in your body on a month-to-month basis. Many philosophers do opine that menstruation is a timed cleanse in a woman's body, a natural mechanism to flush out vitiated bodily entities. Having doshas as the footstone for assertining ayurvedic principles, an exact correlation to many modern ailments may not be found in Ayurveda.

But menstrual cramps or Painful menstruation may be rightfully correlated to Udavarta Yonin Vyapath, one among the 20 uterine maladies mentioned by Achraya Carak in the epic Craka Samhitha. Painful menstruation is understood to occur as a result of accumulated Vata entity within the uterus due to various aetiology, be it trauma, genetics or even improper food and regimen habits.

Ayurveda does not give a standardized treatment protocol, as each body is different and requires different ways of replenishment.Yet a simplified and generalised treatment protocol for the condition can be generated using authentic references. Externally, Abhyanga or Oil massage using Hing Tailum (oil infused with asafoetida) is done in lower abdominal regions along with tub bath according to severity of the condition. Uttara vasti is the next external therapy employed, where lukewarm medicated oil, or decoction will be pushed to the uterus through the vaginal opening. Internally the patient will be administered with various formulations of ghee, oil, medicated wines and decoction formulations depending on the specific condition of the patient and the nature of the disease.
