Addressing Heavy Menstrual Periods Naturally
by Luella Isaacs
(The Best Years in Life) Every month millions of pre-menopausal women dread the effects of menstrual bleeding they experience due to the heavy bleeding and cramps. Although heavy bleeding and cramping are common during menstruation, many women experience blood loss and cramping so severe that they find it impossible to maintain a normal daily schedule, a condition known as “menorrhagia”. Many women may consider menorrhagia to be a lifelong sentence; however, heavy bleeding and cramping can be effectively controlled with tried and true natural remedies.
Normal menstrual flow occurs every 28 days but can range anywhere between 21 to 35 days. Total blood loss should be a total of two to three tablespoons. Excess bleeding can lead to blood loss of five tablespoons or more, causing the sufferer to feel weak and lightheaded.
A vitamin K deficiency can also be responsible for heavy bleeding. If the heavy blood flow does not contain blood clots, this could very well be the culprit. Foods rich in Vitamin K are leafy, green vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, and parsley.
