Ayurvedic PMS Program

The Raj PMS Program, based on the science of Maharishi Ayurveda, provides the most comprehensive natural approach to PMS available today, both in identifying causes and providing treatment.

Ayurveda recognizes that many factors can contribute to PMS symptoms.  Top of the list is the buildup of toxins in the physiology. When impurities and blockages accumulate in the female reproductive area, they predispose women to many symptoms during the heightened activity and transformation of menstruation. Diet, poor digestion and blocked elimination can all play a role in toxin accumulation. 

PMS symptoms can also occur when the other biological rhythms in the body are disturbed through erratic lifestyle patterns. Many women experience increased symptoms of PMS when under mental or physical stress.

Because the foundational causes of PMS differ in each individual, the first step in The Raj PMS Program is to understand your unique state of balance and imbalance. Our Ayurveda experts will create a customized program to remove deep-seated imbalances and enliven your body’s natural healing ability. This approach not only relieves symptoms of PMS, but also helps to create a healthy state of well-being

Frequently Asked Questions

Many disorders can occur when toxins build up in tissues.  Over time, accumulated toxins and impurities block the channels of circulation. This prevents proper nutrition from reaching the tissues and blocks the natural cleansing processes of the body. This allows even more impurities to accumulate in the affected area. In the case of PMS, the build-up of toxins begins to disturb the delicate biochemistry of the reproductive area.

One the first influences toxin accumulation has is on the nerve tissue. If toxins continually aggravate the nerve tissue the result can be symptoms of tenderness, pain and hypersensitivity to stimulation.

The Raj specializes in the traditional Ayurveda purification treatments, known as Panchakarma, to cleanse the body of deep-seated impurities and open the channels of circulation. These powerful but luxurious therapies provide the most thorough internal cleansing programs available in Ayurveda medicine. In fact, research has shown that these treatments remove a class of toxins (fat-soluble toxins) that no other purification treatments can remove. The daily two-hour treatment program of massage, heat treatment, and mild internal cleansing is the cornerstone of your in-residence stay at The Raj.

An important contribution of Ayurveda to the understanding of PMS is the knowledge that the type of symptoms a woman experiences during PMS depends largely on the type of imbalance that is present in the physiology when the menstrual cycle begins.

Ayurveda identifies three major governing principles of the physiological functioning in the body, called doshas. The three doshas are VataPitta and Kapha. Vata imbalance predisposes women to symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, headache and interrupted flow as the menstrual cycle begins. Pitta imbalance predisposes women to anger, irritability, excessive heat, poor complexion and pain during menstruation. Kapha imbalance predisposes women to depression, heaviness and lethargy as menstruation begins.

This understanding of foundational imbalances provides a new perspective as to why different women experience different symptoms during menstruation. During your initial Ayurveda evaluation at the beginning of your stay, our team of Ayurveda experts will identify the imbalances at the root of your individual condition and create a treatment program just for you.

At the start of your PMS Treatment Program, The Raj Ayurveda experts will use pulse assessment and other Ayurveda evaluation tools to identify your natural state of balance and determine what imbalances have developed in your physiology.

This assessment is not an evaluation of the state of cells and tissues but an evaluation of a deeper level of physiological functioning that controls the healing and self-repair mechanisms of the body. Disruptions on this level are the root cause of your PMS symptoms.

Because women can have so many different PMS symptoms for so many different reasons, different treatment approaches are necessary to address their condition. Our Ayurveda experts will create an individualized treatment program to target the specific imbalances that are causing your symptoms. This is the value of the initial Ayurveda assessment of your state of balance and imbalance at the start of your program.

The classic Ayurveda approaches used at The Raj help remove the root causes of PMS by eliminating toxic buildup, improve metabolism, reducing Vata imbalance and providing relief from stress.

Mental and physical stress leads to hormonal changes and other biochemical responses to stress that can aggravate the nervous system and the inflammatory response, causing uncomfortable PMS symptoms. Enhancing the body’s ability to recover from stress is an integral part of The Raj’s approach to health and well-being. We recommend practice of the Transcendental Meditation® program (TM) to remove the stress component of PMS. If you choose to learn meditation during your in-residence stay at The Raj, trained teachers of the Transcendental Meditation® program are available to instruct you. Please note that the cost of this class is in addition to your package price.

One of the most important factors for balancing the doshas and maintaining stability in the nervous system is to have a lifestyle that does not disrupt natural bodily rhythms. When we eat, sleep, and exercise in constantly fluctuating and disturbing patterns, the body loses its natural balancing cycles and cannot cleanse or heal itself as effectively. Therefore, regularity in our daily routine can be extremely effective in reducing symptoms of PMS.

Our Ayurveda experts will review your usual home activities, and work with you to create a daily routine that will actually increase balance in your nervous system and support continued health and well-being.
