In China, the uterus is referred to as “a woman’s inner palace.” It is called a palace as it is the place to create as well as nurture a future generation. It is considered to be a sacred place that does require special care and attention.
One can avoid menstrual disharmonies, such as painful periods, endometriosis, dysfunctional uterine bleeding as well as infertility by taking care of the uterus. A healthy uterus means healthy menstrual flow.
1. Avoid products that contain xenoestrogen
These can reduce the elasticity of one’s uterine wall, thus making it thinner and also more fragile.
2. Avoid having too many sexual partners
This increases the chances of pelvic inflammation.
3. Eat plenty of cold water fish rich in Omega-3 fatty acids
These include mackerel and salmon, which do help reduce the secretion of prostaglandin – a hormone-like substance that usually can make one’s uterus contract too hard, causing much pain and also increasing the chances of a mal-positioning of one’s uterus.
4. Exercise your pelvic muscles
Experts usually admit that swimming happens to be the best form of exercise to strengthen one’s uterus. It is understood that swimming for 2 hours per week can also reduce one’s back pain, relieve period pain and also make childbirth easier.
5. Avoid using birth control pills for longer periods of time
Research has indicated that making use of birth control pills continuously for about over 8 years can actually interrupt the body’s natural hormone balance and also increase the chances of developing fibroids.
6. Have a clean sexual partner
Research conducted in England did reveal that the possibility of a woman developing a pelvic inflammatory disease that can get reduced by about 70% when her sexual partner does clean up his private part before sexual intimacy. Experts do say that many bacteria can lead to pelvic infection that gets carried in one’s folds of the male penis.
7. Don’t hold your urine
One must not hold urine which can make the waste materials accumulate in one’s bladder, thus causing bladder infection, which can also lead to vaginal as well as pelvic infection, due to their closeness. Also, a rather habitually enlarged bladder does cause undue pressure on one’s uterus, thus causing it to move out of position.
8. Quit smoking
Research in England discovered that cancer-causing substances in cigarettes tend to concentrate in one’s body fluids around one’s cervix. Long-term smoking can also have a dangerously harmful effect on one’s uterus.
9. Maintaining a healthy body weight
Lacking in adequate body fats in order to hold one’s uterus in place can also result in a prolapsed (dropped) uterus, which does increase the chances of pelvic infections as well as period pain.
10. Don’t sit for too long
Sitting at one’s desk for rather too long without adequate exercise does inhibit the healthy blood as well as energy circulation in the pelvic area. This can also cause the thickening of one’s uterine wall and also increases the chances of endometriosis. So one must get up and move around every hour or so.
