 Naturopathic Medicine: Full Cycle: Taking the Mystery out of Menstruation  
Lauri Aesoph M. ND ©

Medeiros agrees with Stepanich's views. She advocates that her patients eat a clean diet, low in fats and sugars, drink lots of fluids, indulge in gentle outdoor exercise like walking, and practice meditation during their periods.

Doyle reports that her clients tell her they feel more powerful, energetic, and aroused during menstruation. She says this makes sense considering that menstrual flow is not that much different from the flow of fertile cervical mucus near ovulation. Doyle warns, however, that one of the most overlooked precautions regarding menses is intercourse and tampon use during heavy menstruation. Many studies now indicate that such activity is associated with a higher incidence of endometriosis.

Healthy menstruation is more than treating PMS or menstrual cramps. It is a woman understanding and honoring her unique monthly cycle. Coupling this knowledge and respect with a healthful lifestyle and, when needed, natural treatments, women can learn to enjoy and tune into their own rhythm.
