9. Eat Iron-Rich Foods

green leafy veg

Iron is an important mineral for women dealing with heavy menstrual periods as it can help prevent iron-deficiency anemia.

  • Eat iron-rich foods like dark green vegetables, legumes, pumpkin seeds, egg yolks, liver, red meat, raisins, prunes, and cereals fortified with iron.
  • You can also take an iron supplement after consulting a doctor.

10. Magnesium



Magnesium is a vital mineral to balance female hormones, such as progesterone and estrogen. Moreover, heavy menstruation can be caused by a magnesium deficiency in the body. Therefore, eating magnesium-rich foods will help control the profuse bleeding during menstruation.

  • Eat magnesium-rich foods like oats, nuts and seeds, avocado, dark chocolate, pumpkin, squash,  and watermelon.
  • If opting for a supplement, consult your doctor first.

Additional Tips

  • Keep a record of your menstrual flow.
  • Have an extra supply of sanitary pads and tampons on hand.
  • If having abdominal pain during menstruation, apply a hot water bottle to your lower abdomen or back.
  • Drink a few cups of chamomile, sage or green tea daily.
  • Get regular moderate exercise. Some good exercises include brisk walking, jogging, swimming and bicycling.
  • Enjoy a warm bath to relax muscles and ease pain and tension.
  • Get plenty of rest and make yourself as comfortable as possible.
  • Massage your lower back with warm coconut or olive oil to relieve pain.
  • Add supplements to your diet, such as zinc, calcium and vitamins B6, C and K. Before taking any supplement, consult your doctor.
  • As lack of sleep can worsen the problem, get at least 7 to 8 hours of sound sleep.
  • Do not lift heavy weight during menstruation.

  1. It can also be a sign of uterine CANCER! Get it checked out, and do NOT take “no” for an answer. Be persistent, the life you save may be your own.

  2. Good morning,
    I love your list, but I would like to add one thing…essential oil of cypress. I take two drops in a glass of water in the morning and two in the evening and it really slows down my menstrual flow. It’s truly amazing.

    1. Yes, especially the organic apple cider vinegar which also has other great benefits for you. Add organic honey w/ warm water for better results.

  3. I have not seen it here, but I read about orange juice and grapefruit juice helping. I only like orange juice so I tried it. I’ve been drinking it for about a year now whenever I start my cycle. It really works for me! I drink one or two glasses the day before or on the day I start and the day after. I hardly have any clotting or heavy cycles. I used to be afraid to go places on the second day of my cycle and I would pack extra clothes, sometimes two sets. I swear by it and tell family and friends, it’s not something I tell everyone, but when a coworker mentions her many trips to the restroom, I gotta speak up. I also believe in regular gyno appointments, because of someone I knew who had heavy cycles and cervical cancer. It’s worth a try, it may work for you too!
