A normal menstrual cycle ranges from 28 to 35 days. If a period is late and not a result of pregnancy, it’s possible to induce your period using one of the below Ayurvedic remedies. Please also consult your health care provider for assistance with your late period. It may be a sign of other health conditions.
Irregular menstruation mainly occurs due to thyroid abnormalities, PCOD issues or hormonal imbalance. The cycles can also be delayed due to mental stress, physical illness, improper lifestyle, anemia or travel.
In Ayurveda, anaartavam (delayed period) is caused due to excessive Kapha and Vata dushti. This is an imbalance of Kapha and Vata in the supportive systems of the body, the dhatus. Additionally, the apana vayu which expels the artavam (menstrual fluid) is blocked. Artavam is considered Pitta in nature and so foods which increase Pitta in the body are known to produce the desired results. Here are some Ayurvedic home remedies to increase Pitta, improve the downward energy of Vata and induce your period.
