An Expert Opinion by Dr.Mankads

For some girls menses becomes a painful deal. Homeopathy has powerful medicines which can give instant relief in pain as well as episodes of pain every months. Nowadays taking painkillers has become a daily habit for girls not to get disturbed in daily routines. But at the same time pain bearing threshold has decreased upto greater extent leading to lower pain bearing capacity during childbirth.

Many patients with dysmenorrhea consulted at Dr Mankads’ Homeoclinic have benefited by wonderful results.

  • Include vegetables and fruits rich in iron and vitamin c in your daily diet.
  • Food products high in calcium can always be included in our routine diet.
  • Apricots, plums, peaches and various berries rich in antioxidants and phytochemicals like blueberries, cranberries, raspberries should be used in preparing the salads, soups, smoothies and fresh juices.
  • Include green leafy vegetables in your lunch and dinner. E.g. spinach leaves, leafy lettuce leaves, kales, arugula leaves.

I was suffering from endometriosis basically. My cycles were very painful. I started with gynecology treatment first, but no considerable pain relief. Then I started treatment from Dr. Parth Mankad at Dr Mankads’ Homeoclinic. My pains were reduced upto 60% within 3 months. Now my cycles are manageable and without pain and still I am taking treatment with satisfying result.
