Pelvic Pain


Ayurveda can play a significant role in managing pelvic pain through a combination of corrective Ahar (diet), Vihar (exercise) and Aushadhi (Medicines) regime. Food also affects the mind by causing either an increase or decrease in the three qualities of mind, i.e., Satva guna (light, bliss, goodness), Rajo guna (passion, motion) and Tamo guna (darkness).5

Diet Recommendations (Aahar)

Ayurveda recommends strict following of Ojas- body building foods, and to avoid the foods that reduce the Ojas. This is critical as it regulates ovulation and enhances fertilization in conditions like endometriosis, thereby reducing suffering by pain.

  • Food such as ghee, milk, nuts, dates, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, saffron, honey, and avocados help replenish and build Ojas.
  • Fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, whole grains, protein from plant sources (like beans, peas), sweet and juicy fruits (like mangoes, peaches, plums, and pears), asparagus, broccoli, and spices (like ajwain powder, cumin to purify the uterus in women, turmeric to improve the interaction between hormones and targeted tissues, and black cumin for boosting fertility.
  • Root vegetables, grains, arugula, watercress, onions, garlic, and chives improve circulation and nourish the blood.
  • Urad dhal cooked with equal parts turmeric, cumin, coriander and fennel or banana cooked in ghee, cinnamon and cardamom for enhancing fertility.
  • Black sesame seeds and jaggery are both rich sources of vitamin E and iron, and help with causing positive changes in the female body.
  • Spinach, beans, pumpkin, tomatoes, and beets, boost iron and promote fertility.
