Harnessing Nature's Bounty: Ayurvedic Remedies for Period Pain Management

Menstrual discomfort, a universal experience for women, can significantly impact daily life. While conventional pain relievers offer temporary relief, Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine, provides a holistic approach to managing period pain using natural remedies readily available in your kitchen.

Combating the Vata Dosha:

Ayurveda attributes period pain to an imbalance in the Vata dosha, characterized by air and space elements. Vata imbalance manifests as cramps, bloating, and irregular cycles. To pacify Vata, we focus on warmth and grounding. Here's where our DIY recipes come in:

  • Ginger Tea: Ginger, a natural painkiller with anti-inflammatory properties, works wonders for cramps. Steep grated ginger in hot water for a soothing pre-period drink. Honey can be added for taste and Pitta balance.

  • Ajwain (Caraway Seeds) Pouch: Fill a cloth pouch with ajwain seeds and heat it gently. Apply this warm compress on your lower abdomen for pain relief. The carminative properties of ajwain also help with bloating.

Sesame for Soothing:

Sesame seeds, with their grounding Earth element, are excellent for balancing Vata. Here are two effective ways to use them:

  • Sesame Oil Massage: Warm sesame oil and gently massage your lower abdomen in a clockwise direction. This improves blood circulation and reduces cramping.

  • Sesame Seed Laddu: Make small balls with roasted sesame seeds, jaggery, and ghee. This sweet and nourishing recipe provides essential nutrients and combats Vata imbalance.

Dietary Dos and Don'ts:

  • Favor warming foods: Soups, stews, and cooked vegetables are easily digestible and promote comfort.
  • Limit cold and processed foods: These can aggravate Vata and worsen cramps.
  • Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of warm water or herbal teas throughout the day to flush out toxins.

Ayurveda emphasizes a holistic approach to well-being. By incorporating these simple DIY recipes and dietary modifications into your routine, you can manage period pain naturally and achieve menstrual harmony.

 Remember, consulting an Ayurvedic practitioner for personalized guidance is always recommended.

Amrutam Face Clean Up Reviews

Currently on my second bottle and happy with how this product has kept acne & breakouts in check. It doesn't leave the skin too dry and also doubles as a face mask.

Amrutam face clean up works great on any skin type, it has helped me keep my skin inflammation in check, helps with acne and clear the open pores. Continuous usage has helped lighten the pigmentation and scars as well. I have recommended the face clean up to many people and they have all loved it!!

This really changed the game of how to maintain skin soft supple and glowing! I’m using it since few weeks and see hell lot of difference in the skin I had before and now. I don’t need any makeup or foundation to cover my skin imperfections since now they are slowly fading away after I started using this! I would say this product doesn’t need any kind of review because it’s above par than expected. It’s a blind buy honestly . I’m looking forward to buy more products and repeat this regularly henceforth.
