6 Home Remedies for Seized or Irregular Mensuration

Published

on

Seized or irregular mensuration could constitute a big worry for every woman still in her reproductive stage of life. It could cause sleepless nights and trigger panic in women going through the health challenge.

Health experts however say most cases of seized or irregular mensuration could be treated, both in orthodox medicine and alternative medicines.
Here are some of the ways to manage the condition;

  1. REDUCE STRESS:
    The more stressed you are, the harder you need to work to manage and mitigate stress. Make sure you schedule dedicated non-work time—write it into your planner if you have to!—and engage in leisure activities you love.

Some stresses in life aren’t modifiable (sick children or caring for elderly parents), but some are—perhaps certain friendships are no longer serving you and you can let them go or maybe the time is right to make a job switch? Scan your life for stressors you can change, and then do so!

2. CUT DOWN ON BLOOD SUGAR LEVEL:
The single best (and side effect-free!) way to address blood sugar problems is with food. Emphasize healthy complex (and non-gluten) carbs, eat enough healthy, high-quality fats and proteins, and make sure you front-load non-starchy vegetables in all colors of the rainbow.

3. GO TO BED EARLIER!
Hormones are hugely affected by sleep—or, more specifically, by lack thereof. The 24-hour circadian cycle has a direct influence on, and is directly influenced by, our bodies master hormones. When we’re short on sleep, it’s almost impossible to get our hormones balanced. So make sleep a priority tonight (and every night!).

HOME REMEDIES

Besides all these, you can rely on some home remedies to help you overcome the challenge.

  • TUMERIC
    (ata ile pupa in Yoruba, Ukpo in Ibo)
    Turmeric has the ability to improve the hormonal imbalance and regulate the menstruation cycle. Its anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties reduce the cramping.

HOW TO USE
Take a ¼ teaspoon of turmeric powder (you may grind it yourself) and add it to the lukewarm milk. Take it every day, until you see improvement.

  • CORIANDER SEEDS (Seeds of Ebolo Vegetable in Yoruba)
    Another home remedy involves the use of the seeds of Corriander leaves popularly known as Ebolo in South West Nigeria could be of help in seized or irregular mensuration.

HOW TO USE
Take two cups of water and add one teaspoon of coriander seeds to it. Boil them until the quantity of water reduces to half. Strain the solution and drink it three times a day for a few days prior the onset of your period.
Follow this remedy for one or two months. Alternatively, you can also drink coriander juice on a daily basis.

  • CARROT JUICE
    Carrots are the good source of iron and regulate proper functioning of the hormonal system.

HOW TO USE
One should drink a glass of carrot juice regularly for three months to normalize an irregular menstruation cycle.

  • UNRIPE PAWPAW (PAPAYA)
    Papaya is an excellent home remedy for irregular menstruation due to stress and menopause.
    Unripe papaya contains the enzyme called ‘papain’ which suppresses progesterone, a hormone used to prepare the uterus for conception and maintain pregnancy.
    Papaya also helps contract muscle fibers in the uterus that induce periods.
    HOW TO USE
    Drink unripe papaya juice or eat chopped papaya for a few months.
    Note – Do not drink it during your periods.
  • GRAPES
    Grapes and in particular, grapeseed extract, slow blood clotting. Early research suggests that taking grape seed extract reduce premenstrual symptoms, including pain and swelling.
    HOW TO USE
    Take grape juice daily to prevent irregularity in periods. Or else, incorporate raw grapes into your daily diet in a moderate amount.
    Excess consumption of grapes may result in loose motions so use grapeseed extract where possible.
  • GINGER TEA
    Ginger helps regulate monthly periods in women. It promotes menstruation flow and also relieves the unbearable pain.
    HOW TO USE
    Just boil ½ tsp of freshly grounded ginger in one cup of water for 5-10 minutes. Then add a little sugar or honey to enhance the taste. Strain this mixture and drink three times a day after every meal for around one month.

A school in Lekki has recorded 181 cases of Covid-19 among its students and teachers.

This was declared by the Lagos state commissioner for health, Prof Akin Abayomi, via a statement signed by Tunbosun Ogunbanwo, Director, Public Affairs at the ministry.

Giving details of the investigation, Abayomi explained that a 14-year-old SS1 female student fell ill on the 3rd of October and was sent home after receiving first aid at the school. He added that the student subsequently tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday 6th of October in one of the accredited private labs in Lagos.

The Commissioner assured Lagosians that the State government, through the incident commands system, has the situation under control, stressing that appropriate steps have been taken to contain the spread and manage the positive cases. He noted that all parents have been contacted and counselled via a family zoom call on 13th October to further allay their fears and communication between school authorities and parents continues. The zoom call was attended by the commissioners for Health and Education and all relevant responders and stakeholders.

“There is a total lockdown and movement restriction in the school with the Epidemiology and Surveillance Pillar of the EOC and Ibeju-Lekki LGA State Disease Surveillance and Notification Officer (DSNO) reporting at the school daily to conduct further investigation while positive students and staff have been isolated on the premises and given the COVID-19 home-care treatment packs and are being monitored in isolation within the school premises,” Abayomi said.

The Commissioner stated that the school authorities supported by the State Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Education are following the COVID-19 guidelines as set out by the government. According to him, “students are to be isolated in the School premises and if unwell will be admitted in one of the accredited isolation centers in Lagos. Students are discouraged from going home to avoid infecting members of their families”.

The Ministry of Health is working closely with the Ministry of Education to jointly manage this minor but significant outbreak in this boarding school. “I am pleased to announce that all the infected students are predominantly asymptomatic while some have very mild symptoms, no student has required hospitalization,” he said.

“Members of the Emergency Operation Center and our counterparts in the Ministry of Education have been deployed to the school to provide strategic interventions and support to the school. This includes psychosocial support, infection prevention control, medical monitoring and risk communication experts to further enlighten and educate affected people,” Abayomi noted.

The Commissioner reemphasized the need for citizens to practise the highest standard of personal and environmental hygiene , stressing that use of face mask in public places, proper hand washing and hand hygiene practice and maintaining physical distance will help prevent the spread of the infection.

“COVID-19 is still very much with us and we must strive to prioritize the safety of all, including students and teachers, by adhering strictly to prevention protocols and guidelines issued by government to prevent its spread,” Abayomi said.

He urged Lagosians to call the 08000EKOMED or 08000356633 toll-free line if they notice any sign or symptoms of COVID-19, which include fever, cough, sore throat, fatigue or loss of taste or smell.
