Quick Action Plan for Genital Warts
A healthy diet is vitally important for preventing and managing menstrual problems. Avoid all sugars, refined carbohydrates, sodas, processed foods, preservatives, artificial sweeteners (especially aspartame), corn syrup, chocolate, caffeine, alcohol, white bread and white flour products, pastries, red meats, saturated fats, and hydrogenated and trans-fatty oils, emphasizing organic foods, including plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and legumes, nuts and seeds, and (sparingly) organic, free-range poultry and wild-caught fish.
For amenorrhea increase your daily food intake by 500 calories for one month, especially if you exercise for extended amounts of time.
For menorrhagia minimize carbohydrate consumption and eat only complex carbohydrates, limiting carbohydrate intake to one meal per day.
Mackerel, salmon, and trout, are excellent foods for menstrual cramps.
Helpful nutrients include vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin B-complex, vitamin B3, vitamin B6, vitamin C, flavonoids, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, omega-3 oils, evening primrose oil, and gamma linolenic acid (GLA).
For mennorrhagia, mixed bioflavonoids and, in some cases, iron can also be helpful.
Applying natural progesterone cream twice a day (half a teaspoon per application) two to three weeks before your menstrual cycle can help to relieve and possibly prevent symptoms.
Warm castor oil packs placed on the lower abdominal region for one hour three to five days a week, beginning two weeks before menstruation, can also be helpful.
