Hello Varsha, 

Heavy menses or any irregularity in menses is a result of hormonal changes that are caused by our wrong eating habits and sedentary lifestyle. A wrong living style leads to accumulating toxins within the body which disturbs the functioning and hormonal balance.

Possible reasons for irregular periods 

  • Stress.
  • Incorrect sleeping pattern. 
  • Poor nutrition. 
  • Hormonal imbalance. 

Diet to take

  • Start the day with 2-3 glasses of warm water. This will help to flush out the toxins out of the body. 
  • Eat only plant-based natural foods. 
  • Take overnight soaked raisins in the morning. 
  • Drink freshly prepared homemade fruit juices like pomegranate juice, beetroot juice. This will provide the body with easily absorbable nutrients. 
  • Drink coconut water. 
  • Include green leafy vegetables, salads, sprouts to your diet.

Foods to avoid

  • Avoid processed foods and packaged foods.
  • Avoid tea, coffee, and other caffeinated drinks. 
  • Avoid dairy products as they are not meant for the human digestive system and hence facilitates the accumulation of toxins in the body. 
  • Avoid animal products. 
  • Avoid carbonated drinks. 

Physical activity 

Exercising is very important to improve the body's metabolism and blood circulation. 

  • Do 12 sets of suryanamaskar daily.
  • Do bhujanga asana, trikona asana, vriksha asana, tada asana.
  • Take a short morning walk of at least 30min daily. 
  • Take sunlight in the morning. 

Meditation and pranayam 

Meditation and Pranayam, both help to relieve stress. The vibrations that are generated during the pranayam heal many health issues along with relieving stress.

So, practice meditation for 20 minutes daily.

Perform bhramri pranayam, ujjayi pranayam.


A correct sleep cycle is very important to maintain the circadian rhythm. Hence, take 7-8hours of sleep regularly. Sleep early at night and also wake up early in the morning. 

Thank you
