Ayurvedic View on Menstrual Disorders

Nov 24, 2022

Episode 263

Colette continues her discussion on the Ayurvedic view of the menstrual cycle from episode #256 where she talked about the menstrual cycle, the doshas involved at different stages of the cycle and the gunas or qualities that you may experience throughout your cycle. In that episode she also discussed how PMS or pre-menstrual syndrome is a sign of aggravation in the doshas and gunas along with how to use the principle of opposites to pacify any imbalances.

In this episode Colette covers other menstrual cycle disorders, including:

  • Hypomenorrhea - regular but scanty or light menstrual flow.
  • Oligomenorrhea - irregular menstrual cycle.
  • Amenorrhea - an absence of the menstrual cycle.
  • Menhorrhagia - heavy menstruation, including prolonged menstruation.
  • Metrorrhagia - bleeding at irregular intervals outside of your expected cycle.
  • Dysmenorrhea - experiencing pain/cramps during menstruation.
