For almost every woman, Menarche to Menopause, is a story to tell. Despite being a universal phenomenon, the area of women's reproductive health still remains a topic that is discussed in hushed tones. And women in different cultures and communities are required to silently suffer the pain and misery caused due to hormonal changes.
Indigenous Indian systems of healthcare can provide effective solutions for self-help in reproductive healthcare. They help us accomplish this through knowledge of appropriate lifestyle and through removal of root imbalances in the basic biological functions of digestion, metabolism, circulation, tissue development and nervous system activity that in turn take care of reproductive health. It is a "fostering health" approach in comparison to a "fighting disease" strategy.
