Excessive vaginal discharge is often related to elevated estrogen levels in the body. Check out the list of health habits to eliminate and prevent excessive/abnormal discharge.
In my previous post, I identified four major factors that can cause excessive/abnormal vaginal discharge: poor dietary habits, emotional stress, overwork, and external dampness.
Healthy Habits to Eliminate Excessive Vaginal Discharge
In this post, I’ll share with you a list of health habits you can cultivate to help eliminate and prevent excessive/abnormal vaginal discharge.
Here they are:
1. Refined Sugar
Cut down or eliminate refined sugar if you can. Balancing blood sugar level is a key strategy to eliminating excessive vaginal discharge.
2. Processed Foods
Cut down or eliminate processed foods and white flour from your diet. Add whole grains, beans and legumes instead.
3. Trans Fats
Eliminate partially hydrogenated fats (trans fats) whenever possible, because they increase the production of inflammatory chemicals, and dampness in the body – one of the leading causes of excessive vaginal discharge.
Eliminate commercial red meat, poultry and diary products that are packed with hormones and animal steroid hormones.
They contribute to excessively high levels of estrogen in the body – one of the major causes of hormone imbalance that can manifest as excessive/abnormal vaginal discharge.
If you’re looking for a supplement that helps balance your hormones and reduce estrogen dominance – which may manifest as excessive/abnormal vaginal discharge, I recommend Nature’s Way Dim-Plus Capsules.
DIM-plus contains diindolylmethane, a phytonutrient found in cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and kale. It supports the activity of enzymes that improve estrogen metabolism.
Cut down on coffee, alcohol, and other stimulants.
Eat foods rich in fiber to clear out excess estrogens. This means eating plenty of veggies, beans and whole grains.
Have a nutritious breakfast high in protein and vital nutrients.
9. Regular Meals
Eat regular meals. Try to eat 3-5 meals per day at the same time every day.
Eat mindfully without distractions, such as TV, reading, working, etc.
Stop eating when you’re 70-80% full.
12. Early Dinner
Eat your last meal at least 2-3 hours before going to bed, which will give your liver its needed rest. This will help improve estrogen metabolism and the quality of your sleep.
13. Low-glycemic Diet
Eat a low-glycemic diet. Learn why low-glycemic-index diet may be the answer to your menstrual problems.
Eat balanced meals. Check out My Little Guide to a Healthy and Balanced Diet
Sometimes it’s difficult to get all of the essential nutrients from our diet. So consider taking a good women’s multivitamin daily to make sure you’re covered.
Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day.
Exercise regularly. Go for a 30-40 minute walk, 3-5 times a week.
Learn to say no to people and situations that take energy from you. And say yes to those that give you energy.
Meditate 10-40 minutes every day. Even just 5 minutes a day can make a difference over time.
Don’t take things too seriously. Be playful.
Balance work and play. Take plenty of breaks and get plenty of rest.
Dance, sing, paint, or write. Express yourself.
Allow yourself to feel your emotions fully. Don’t resist. Let the emotion complete its cycle and pass through you.
Have a good support system. Join our community of women who listen and understand what you’re going through.
Track your menstrual cycles, vaginal discharge, and PMS/period symptoms.
Be aware of cold, damp environment. Make sure you keep yourself warm and dry most of the time, especially after sweating, shower, swimming, etc.
