*Dr. Sunita Goswami and Dr. Rashmi Sharma

Abstract

Dysmenorrhea is one of the most common reasons for non-attendance at school or work among young women. Due to Mithya Ahar, Vihar, over exertion & malnutrition this may lead to Vikruti in “Rutuchakra” leading to various Vyadhi allied to menstruation. Dysmenorrhea or menstrual cramps is one among such disorders. About 40-50% Ladies suffer from dysmenorrhea in india. Teenage girls are more prone to this disorder. Awareness, care, and simple home remedies will give comfort to the ladies suffering from Menstrual cramps. Dysmenorrhea is also called as Kashtartava in Ayurveda, which has main symptoms of pain in the lower abdomen radiating to the limbs in the first 3 days of menses causing nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and leg cramps. In menstrual disorders caused by Vata Dosha, the specific treatment prescribed for suppressing that particular Dosha, should be used. Recipes prescribed for Yoni Rogas and Uttarbasti etc. should also be used after giving due consideration to the vitiated Dosha. The changes in dietary habits such as too much Vata causing food (Vathala Ahara) should be avoided. Too much of junk food and such foods which cause constipation should be avoided.

Keywords: Ayurveda, Vata Dosha, Kashtartava, Yoga.
