Lately, we have been having several Muslim ladies coming in for menstrual ailments. Most often, these complaints include premenstrual syndrome (PMS), excessive bleeding, cramps and abdominal pain. These complains among women have become so common that we often mistake them as the normal passage of undergoing the monthly menstrual cycle.
In actuality, these menstrual ailments are not normal. Normal menstruation should be painless, fresh color (neither pale or dark) and unclotted. Women with menstrual ailments are not in balance and should be treated. If left untreated, it can lead to more serious issues like endometriosis, a common cause of infertility.
Menstruation can be viewed as the monthly health report card of the women. The timing of ovulation, the symptoms of pain, emotional fluctuations, breast tenderness, the color and consistency of the blood, the heaviness of the bleeding – all of these different characteristics of the period reveal information about hormonal balance or imbalance, and even the presence of concerns such as endometriosis or polycystic ovary syndrome.
Menstrual irregularities can be caused by many reasons: emotional changes, such as anger, stress, or excessive worrying, long term use of antibiotics or oral contraceptives, poor diet, insufficient rest and sleep, too much sexual activity, history of sexual abuse, surgery and etc.
When a woman with irregular periods go the doctor, they will give her contraceptive (birth control) pills to take. These pills override the woman’s own hormonal function so it does not experience the symptoms of hormonal imbalance anymore.
The contraceptive pills will regulate menstrual cycles but unfortunately they do not treat the root cause of the irregularity. When a woman discontinues the pill, the irregularity will most likely return.
What the contraceptive pills do is that they trick the body into thinking that it is pregnant and does not allow for ovulation. No egg is released from the ovary and pregnancy cannot occur. Essentially, the hormones override the body’s natural hormone functioning.
If the woman desires to have children later in their life, they should heal the hormonal imbalance without taking the contraceptive pills.
Hijama and herbs are very effective at treating menstrual disorders including painful periods, irregular periods and PMS. Hormonal imbalances are thought to be the cause of menstrual irregularities from a western medical point of view. Hijama has been shown to assist the endocrine system in keeping balanced levels of estrogen and progesterone in the body. Hijama treatment can also bring a deep sense of relaxation over the body allowing it to function on its highest level. Hijama and herbal medicine provide a natural, safe and effective way to resolve most menstrual irregularities.
The explanation is that there are various channels of energy inside the human body. As long as the energy continues to circulate, the person remains healthy. But, when there are obstructions in this flow, these blockages results in diseases and ailments. Hijama therapy, by creating suction can release these obstructions and induce the body to heal itself. This therapy is highly effective in treating an extensive range of problems, infertility being one of them.
