Diet Care for Amenorrhea

Amenorrhea is when a woman of childbearing age fails to menstruate. A woman normally menstruates every 23 to 35 days.This condition occurs due to imbalance of hormones, low levels of haemoglobin and any associated disease. Food intake and amenorrhea go hand in hand. Diet plays a large role in period loss. Whether a result of restriction or over-exercising, under-eating starves your body of essential nutrients. When under-fed, your body prioritizes the energy needs of organs like the heart and the brain and shuts down other processes that it considers less important, like the menstrual cycle.
