If this is the time to detox and give your body a break as it cleanses, it is also the time of physical pain, mood swings, and irritable behavior. A lot to experience in just a few days! This is the time of PMS or Premenstrual Symptoms. Symptoms typically start during the second half of menstrual cycle which is 14 days or more after the first day of your last period and go away 1-2 days after your cycle starts. What follows is the time of period itself! For a girl, this is one duration that leaves her and people around her tensed. Here are a few natural ways for a clean, hygienic and tension free Menstrual Period.
- Eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies, legumes, brown rice, raw nuts and seeds. Avoid white flour, sugar, pasta, caffeine and dairy. Load up on potassium with products like coconut water, onions, bananas, greens, strawberries and melons, etc.
- Incorporate any type of exercise like brisk walk, yoga, walk or run for at least 20 minutes a day.
- Use organic tampons or chemical and plastic free pads to reduce menstrual cramps and maintain healthy hygiene.
