DIET

In general whole plant-based diet is very effective in controlling this condition.

Eat high fiber green leafy veggies, your diet should have a balance of carbs, protein, good fat (nuts and seeds, avocados) along with antioxidants and superfoods.

It`s a natural phenomenon, end of the reproductive years you are “around menopause” and the body is making natural transition to menopause. Irregular menstrual cycle is a normal process just be with it.

The level of Estrogen (female harmone)- in your body rises & falls unevenly so so your menstrual cycles may lenghten and shorten.

In 6-12 months you will be absolutely fine. This is a difficult time for your family too (mood swings uff)

*Yoga, meditation/ breathwork can help to keep you calm

*calming teas are helpful

*Vitamin D top-up is important.

*Dong quai is my absolute favourite herb, a remedy from traditional chinese medicines. You can use the root of this plant as a tincture/extract/ as a tea.

*Switching to a whole plant-based diet really helps in the smooth closingm of this stage.

Early menopause, in your case, is at which case?

It’s a natural process. Most women begin menopause from 45-55 years. Its okay if it starts before or around that time. Its genetic as well.

Dong Quai herb (Chinese herb) is very potent for irregular periods.

Boil the roots of this herb & make a tea & drink every day. You can get its supplement capsules also (Nature’s way brand is good)

1tbs of soaked Garden cress seeds are safe for pregnant women. Moderation is key. Please ask your doctor before starting to eat regularly

Dong Quia is my fact herb for the period problems. Take 1000 mg tablet-2 times a day or have crude root extract devotion 8-10g per day. Continue for more than 3 months to see the results

Are you planning a baby? In general, there is no harm in continuing your folic acid supplement during the periods. If there are problems in periods in that case we need to look deeper. Please either consult with a gynecologist or DM ME WITH OTHER DETAILS

Start eating organic food/ food without pesticides and chemicals; it will help you magically.

There are several reasons behind this, which can be identified by a gynecologist.
Please consult and find out the cause first.
It can be due to stress, thyroid, PCOS, medication, birth control pills, or endometriosis, etc.
Please take the test done between Day 20-22 of a cycle (with Day 1 being typically the first day of menstrual bleeding).
This is generally going to reflect maximum, ongoing progesterone secretion.
Otherwise, as you can see in the graph below, the levels vary quite a bit.
This is a PERIMENOPAUSE symptom.
No need to worry, this will be settled down within 6-12 months maximum.
If you want therapy for her then, hormone therapy may be an option.
It can help with the bleeding problem and other symptoms like  hot flashes and night sweats.
