Ayurvedic perspective about PMS
Premenstrual syndrome is known as Krichhraartava in ayurvedic terms. It means difficult menses. Ayurveda says that PMS occurs due to impairment of the Apana Vata, which is a sub-associate of Vata Dosha. Apana Vata is seated in the lower pelvic area and is liable for removal of stool, urine, menstrual blood as well as reproductive fluids.
Due to intake of hot, spicy and oily foods, Apana Vata is intensified and gets circulated in the different body channels resulting in various physical problems in the form of PMS. The mood swings and psychological problems are also caused during menstruation due to aggravation of Apana Vata.
Diet & Lifestyle Advocacy
Females who have a tendency to show symptoms of PMS must take adequate amounts of lukewarm water. Warm, easily digestible and freshly prepared foods must be consumed. Use cumin seeds, fenugreek, black pepper, mint, celery seeds, coriander and asafetida during cooking. All these aid in quick and proper digestion.
Some foods must be completely avoided including cabbage, eggplant, mushrooms, potato, pumpkin, cauliflower, and peas. Similarly, indigestible foods, oily, spicy, heavy and sour foods must be avoided.
