AYURVEDIC TREATMENT for AMENORRHOEA
Amenorrhoea (Greek: a - no; + men - month; + rhoia - flow) is the absence of periods. In Ayurveda,it can be classified into two conditions or types. In the first condition,termed as “Vilambit Artava” is a normal (physiological) occurrence in girls before Puberty (menarche), during Pregnancy and Breastfeeding (lactation) and following menopause. But failure to menstruate after puberty is called Amenorrhoea. It is generally regarded as abnormal by the age of 14 years in girls without other signs of secondary sexual development, or by the age of 16 in girls with normal secondary sexual characteristics. In the second condition, termed as :Artavavrodh”,absence of menstruation for six consecutive months before menopause in a woman who has previously had regular periods is also termed as Amenorrhoea. Hence there are two types of Amenorrhoea can be classified as Primary Amenorrhoea and Secondary Amenorrhoea
According to the Ayurveda, perspective, imbalance of tridoshas and three mental properties lead to Amenorrhoea. Aggravated vata and kapha dosha and low pitta dosha are responsible for Amenorrhoea. Specifically, imbalanced or high apana vata is responsible for amenorrhoea. Located in the pelvic region, it controls the flow of menstruation.
Mental properties like high rajsic properties high tamsic properties and low sattvik properties of mind are responsible for Amenorrhoea. Aggravated vata or apana vata causes increase of digestive fire, impairing digestion at a subtle level. Impaired digestion causes accumulation of ama or toxins in the body. This ama leads to Amenorrhoea.
When digestion is impaired, instead of the healthy nutrient plasma, ama or toxins are produced. This ama accumulates in weaker channels of the body. When this ama accumulates in rasavahi srota (which carries the nutrient plasma) or artavavahi srota (which carries the menstrual flow) and blocks them stopping the flow of menstruation, it can cause Amenorrhoea.
Aggravated vata and kapha dosha increases the cold temperament in the body, which leads to low pitta dosha or decrease of hot temperament. Menstrual blood is analogous to pitta dosha. Thus, low pitta dosha or low hot temperament leads to decrease or loss of menstrual blood
