Ayurveda for a Healthy Period

  • Maha Rose Center for Healing 97 Green St G3 New York, NY 11222 USA (map)

Have you ever found yourself inexplicably raging, or maybe even crying, extra sensitive to everything around you only to get your period the next day? Does your appetite run wild for sugar and chocolate when your period is on its way, or do you find yourself bloating and breaking out?

Many women suffer from (pre- and) menstrual imbalances like acne, anxiety, fluid retention, sugar and chocolate cravings, mood swings, irritability, bloating, edema, headaches, cramping, breast tenderness, fatigue and lean on a limited number of tools for support. In fact, these major indicators of hormone balance are often minimized, as women accept PMS discomfort and irregularity in flow as normal. Symptoms like these should not be taken lightly! The healing system of Ayurveda teaches that PMS problems are warning signs from the body that something is out of balance. Your body is communicating to you and it’s time to start listening! According to Ayurveda, the varied symptoms of the cycle are not random, but actually indicate different types of ‘doshic’ imbalances.

In this class, you will learn to identify premenstrual and menstrual symptoms as the manifest through the 3 doshas: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. We will discuss foods to include/to avoid to improve flow, along with food remedies and herbs to treat symptoms relative to each dosha. We will also talk about general Ayurvedic recommendations to balance hormones and create a balanced cycle. During class we sample some of the herbs blended into a tonic, and students will leave with recipes and a sample of tea.
