Transit problems during menstruation

Les problèmes de transit pendant les règles

In this video, Marion, accompanied by Emilie, a naturopath specializing in premenstrual syndrome, answer our customer's question. Why do many women experience transit problems during or before their period?

75% of women suffer from transit problems during their period or premenstrual syndrome (PMS), due to the influence of the hormone prostaglandin on the digestive tract. This hormone, responsible for the contraction of the uterus to expel menstrual flow, can also affect the digestive system, sometimes causing constipation or diarrhea.

To promote more pleasant transit, we recommend a diet rich in fiber and starch, avoidance of fatty foods, regular exercise and adequate hydration. However, we encourage you to consult a healthcare professional for personalized advice. This advice in no way replaces medical advice.

Hormonal imbalance

Émilie, a naturopath specializing in women's health, completes this video by explaining the role of prostaglandins in inflammation and hormonal imbalance linked to premenstrual syndrome. She then offers dietary advice on how to reduce inflammation, such as focusing on fruits, vegetables, oily fish and seeds, while avoiding processed foods, refined sugars and saturated fats.

She also recommends herbs such as turmeric, ginger and evening primrose oil for their anti-inflammatory properties, as well as supplements such as B vitamins, magnesium, zinc, selenium and vitamin E to regulate inflammation and support intestinal and hormonal health.

In conclusion, we encourage women suffering from persistent symptoms to implement a suitable routine and consult a healthcare professional for personalized follow-up. The advice shared in this video aims to inform and support women in managing their menstrual symptoms, while emphasizing the importance of taking individual needs into account and consulting a healthcare professional for tailored support.
