How To Take Care Of Monthly Discomforts During Menstrual Cycle with Dr Poh Yu Min
1) Keep your belly warm
This prevents cold from invading your stomach and spleen.
Make sure to wear appropriately warm clothing during your menstruation and consider using a hot water bottle.
2) Avoid cold and raw foods
In the days before and during your menstruation, avoid cold or raw foods like ice cream, iced drinks, and sushi. These
foods are considered yin in nature which slow down blood in the uterus. Instead, try to eat and drink warm and cooked
3) Ginger Tea
Ginger is known to warm the body, nourish the spleen and dispel dampness. Ginger tea with brown sugar is a
common remedy for menstrual pains.
4) Eat more Greens
Dark leafy greens are a dietary source of magnesium, calcium, and micronutrients. These nutrients are
essential for mediating muscle contractions. In Chinese dietary therapy, dark green vegetables are
also considered to be mildly cleansing, which is what the body needs in a “stagnation” condition.
After menstruation, this is the phase where women’s bodies are relatively Qi and blood deficient, due to the
loss of menstruation blood. In our modern busy lifestyles, this phase is an important time to rebuild
Qi and blood by allowing time for rest and regeneration.
Bai feng Wan has long been used for providing support for female menstrual cycle and
maintaining a healthy female reproductive system. It helps to tonify qi and blood, and
relieve discomfort during menstruation. Regular consumption of Bai feng Wan relieves
menstrual cramps, prevents the symptoms of menopause and premenstrual syndrome,
corrects hormone imbalance and acts as a general tonic for the female reproductive system.
