Vegetarians help relieve dysmenorrhea
Many female friends come to menstruation, and the lower abdomen hurts.
In order to alleviate dysmenorrhea, various methods have been tried, sometimes eating chocolate, drinking brown sugar water, warming the belly with a hot water bottle, and some people even taking painkillers, the effect may vary from person to person.
銆€銆€A new study found that vegetarianism helps relieve dysmenorrhea.
Even if you don’t eat vegan, supplementing soy or protein powder every day can improve premenstrual syndrome and dysmenorrhea.
銆€銆€According to a study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 30 women with severe dysmenorrhea were treated with low-fat vegetarian diet. After two menstrual cycles, the 30 women were relieved of pain, worry, and nausea.Symptoms of premenstrual syndrome such as bloating have also slowed down, and the average dysmenorrhea time has been reduced from seven days to four days, indicating that a light vegetarian diet is indeed helpful in relieving dysmenorrhea in women.
銆€銆€According to experts in obstetrics and gynecology, dysmenorrhea is caused by the endometrial detachment during the menstrual cycle, and a large amount of secreted substances cause contraction of the uterine muscles.
Dysmenorrhea without a clear cause is called primary dysmenorrhea, and the number of women affected by this may be more than 50%, and the more serious is about 5%-15%.
Dysmenorrhea usually begins in adolescence, and interferes with normal life in severe cases. Primary dysmenorrhea gradually decreases with age or after growth.
銆€銆€Secondary dysmenorrhea is less common, accounting for about a quarter of women with dysmenorrhea.
Pain in the endometrial tissue that bleeds during menstruation may be aggravated by the cervix. Other factors, such as uterine tilting, lack of exercise, and stress, stress, may increase the pain.
銆€銆€One of the most common causes of secondary dysmenorrhea is endometritis, as well as uterine fibroids, salpingitis and pelvic inflammatory disease may also cause abdominal pain, which may be aggravated by menstruation.
Dysmenorrhea is always pain in the lower abdomen, but also affects the lower back and thighs, sometimes acute pain, sometimes persistent headache, and often accompanied by headache, nausea, constipation, diarrhea and frequent urination, urgency and so on.
At this time, if you can actively rest and sleep, exercise regularly and adjust your diet, you can alleviate the symptoms of dysmenorrhea.
銆€銆€Studies have found that low-nutrition diets such as vegetables and beans can alter the binding globulins that regulate sex hormones in the body and reduce the synthesis of substances that cause dysmenorrhea.
In particular, soybean may be a plant estrogen, and the effect of suppressing dysmenorrhea is most pronounced.
It has also been found that unsaturated fatty acids can inhibit the secretion of estrogen and reduce the degree of dysmenorrhea. Unsaturated fatty acids are mostly found in plant feces, so vegetarians can achieve the purpose of inhibiting dysmenorrhea.
銆€銆€In addition, the unsaturated fatty acids in vegetables, fruits and legumes are about omega-3 fatty acids, which have anti-inflammatory and analgesic functions.
However, the omega-6 fatty acids contained in animal dung and fried foods are generally painful.
Therefore, eating more vegetarian food can indeed reduce the pain-causing factors in the body.
銆€銆€Some foods that produce swell gas should be eaten as little as possible during menstruation, such as watermelon, onions, carrots, etc., leading to faster gastrointestinal motility and uterine contraction; foods with too much salt can cause cell edema and increase dysmenorrhea.
Alcohol will accelerate the loss of vitamin B and mineral substances, causing fatigue, decreased resistance, and easy to induce premenstrual syndrome. Such food should be avoided a week before menstruation.
