Food to eat to regulate the menstrual cycle?

Healthy food: Foods that will help are fresh foods: fruits and vegetables, leafy greens, etc. My favorite treatment for regulating menses is acupuncture. It straightens out hormone balances in a couple months, and the good diet will keep that correction going. ...Read more

Increase complex carbohydrates – try to incorporate at least 5 servings of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit into your diet daily. Try: omega- 3 fatty acids. Try to take in magnesium either through supplementation or through your diet with your doctor’s approval. ...Read more
