Dr. Aggarwal’s Health Tip of the Week

Menstrual Cycle

A woman’s menstrual cycle is a very precious time for her and can usually be a very smooth event. However, many women suffer from bloating, breast tenderness, irritability, anxiety, irregular flow, spotting, pimples, abdominal cramps and fatigue. Some women’s cramps are so painful that they become debilitating. These symptoms are not necessary if your organs and energy meridians are functioning smoothly. Symptoms such as the ones above indicate an imbalance of hormones as well as an imbalance of your key hormone regulating organs such as your ovaries, liver and adrenal glands. If left untreated, hormonal imbalances can lead to cysts, breast lumps, early menopause and even infertility.

Catch your painful periods, PMS, infertility and irregular flow issues earlier and in a natural way so that you can restore balance to your entire cycle. Remember, your periods are not solely related to your uterus only. They are a reflection of the health of your entire body. If your periods are troublesome, it usually indicates that there is something else going on with your health that will lead to chronic issues. By using issues of your menstrual cycle to understand what is happening in your entire body, we begin to heal you in a holistic way and help you prevent further disease from developing later in life.

Take care of your health naturally. You can fill out a hormonal questionnaire on www.healthretreatsafrica.com to find out what state your hormones are in.
