What Is Heavy Bleeding During Period?
Heavy bleeding during periods may be occurring if you lose so much blood that you have to change pads or tampons several times an hour. You may also be experiencing heavy bleeding during periods if your menstrual cycle regularly causes you to be too weak to perform your normal activities. You may be experiencing excessively heavy bleeding if you have to get out of bed to change pads or tampons during the night or are too weak to get out of the bed in the morning. If you are loosing this much blood during your period, even if your doctor says that it is just normal for you, it can be stopped naturally! Think about this, dogs and other animals bleed so little during a menstrual cycle that it generally goes unnoticed. You can make that your normal as well!
Stop Heavy Bleeding During Periods
At Optimum Health, we stop heavy bleeding during periods by trying to work in harmony with what your body will try to do to stop the heavy bleeding. Isn’t that the most logical starting point? It is well known that the body uses vitamin A to control the amount of blood released during the menstrual cycle. Beta-carotene, the form that should be taken, gets converted into vitamin A which is then used to help minimize the flow of blood during your period. It is with this in mind that the first thing to try should be increasing the amount of beta-carotene in your diet. Doesn’t it make sense to consider this possibility before taking medicines that have harmful side effects?
Stop Heavy Bleeding During Periods With Beta-Carotene
One of the best ways to stop heavy bleeding during periods with beta-carotene is to drink carrot juice or orange carrot juice. You can add some orange juice to your carrot juice for flavor if you like. Drinking 8 ounces of carrot juice (with or without orange juice added to it) can stop your bleeding in as little as 15 minutes.
“I was standing in a puddle of blood. But, carrot juice really stopped my heavy menstrual bleeding in 15 minutes!”T, Clark, Richmond, Virginia
“I had been bleeding heavily for 6 months. My physicians had tried everything. I was weak and struggling. I came to Optimum Health and did as they suggested. I stopped bleeding in 2 hours!”M. Fuller, Richmond, Virginia
Though stopping heavy menstrual bleeding with carrot juice works quickly, it usually doesn’t stop the bleeding for long. So, adding a beta-carotene supplement with the juice is what we suggest. Take 4 Bright Eyes by Herbal Healer with your juice. When taken by itself, it takes the Bright Eyes about 45 minutes to enter your blood and stop the bleeding. When taken with the juice, it begins to work just as the effects of the juice is wearing off and will stop the heavy bleeding for about 2-8 hours.
Note that beta-carotene is one of those supplements that it is hard to find brands that work so we suggest that you use Bright Eyes by Herbal Healer or be very careful how you choose. If the supplement you choose doesn’t stop your menstrual bleeding in an hour, assume the brand is the problem.
Foods that help stop heavy menstrual bleeding are the foods rich in beta-carotene/luteins. So, make sure you eat plenty of them during your menstrual cycle. Which foods are these? So glad you asked! Try eating some carrots or drinking carrot juice. Try eating some sweet potatoes. You can bake them or cook them into puddings, pies and souffles. Other foods that are rich in beta-carotene and help stop heavy menstrual bleeding are cantaloupes, spirulina, and dark green leafy vegetables.
What Makes Heavy Bleeding Worse?
Eating sugar can make heavy menstrual bleeding worse! Eating the sugar while being sedentary during your menstrual cycle can cause insulin to be released. Insulin, indirectly, increases your menstrual bleeding. Sugar can cause such heavy menstrual bleeding that the blood may gush out and cause quite an embarrassing and frightening situation.
Sugar has made some of our clients begin to bleed heavily within a matter of minutes after it is eaten. Monitor your sugar intake and see if you tend to have heavier bleeding after eating it. You may find it helpful to minimize your sugar/carbohydrate intake when you have your menstrual cycle.
Unfortunately, many women crave sugar during their menstrual cycle and this causes very heavy periods. B complex vitamins are helpful with in these cases because they decrease and/or eliminate the sugar cravings. If you just have to have some sugar, put plenty of fiber with it to cause it to enter your bloodstream slowly. Then take your B complex vitamins to try and stop the sugar cravings from returning. Doing this can prevent the excessive bleeding or keep it from being prolonged. Your body requires a good multivitamin to go with the B Vitamins. Your body also requires all of the B vitamins in order for this to work as they work in concert with one another. Of the many brands tested, we have only found 3 brands of B vitamins to actually be constructed properly and actually stop the sugar cravings: New Sun’s B-Complex, Herbal Healer’s B-100 and Shaklee’s B-Complex. When you take enough of one of these B complex vitamins, you will notice that your menstrual cycle will stop in 3 days.
Seeking professional assistance with heavy menstrual bleeding?
Heavy menstrual bleeding can cause excessive blood loss and many other symptoms if not handled properly. We suggest you consider immediate assistance if blood is gushing, if you are beginning to look pale or if you feel too weak to walk. If you tend to have heavy menstrual bleeding regularly, then having a health professional monitor the possibility of anemia would also be a good idea. In these situations, you may need to do more than just stop the bleeding. Keep in mind that with each ounce of blood loss precious nutrients are also lost. Therefore, you may also need assistance with building your nutrient levels back up in order to feel strong and vitally energetic again.
