Leucorrhoea Diet

A total health-building scheme is essential for the removal of the systemic toxicity, which is primarily responsible for the disease. Such a scheme should consist of correct feeding habits, proper sleep, exercise, fresh air and sunshine.

To begin with, the patient should fast for three or four days with lemon water or fruit juices for the elimination of the morbid matter from the body. During this period. The bowels should be cleansed daily with a warm water enema.

In case of habitual constipation, steps should be taken for its eradication.

Diet for Leucorrhoea:

After a short fast, the patient may adopt an all-fruit diet for about a week. In this regimen, she should have three meals a day of fresh juicy fruits such as apples, pears, grapes, grapefruits, oranges, pineapples and peaches. If the patient is suffering from anaemia, or is very much underweight, the diet may consist of fruits and milk. The patient may then gradually embark upon a well-balanced diet on the following lines:

Upon arising: A glass of lemon or orange juice in lukewarm water.

Breakfast: Fresh acid bearing fruits such as apples, oranges, pears, all berries or fruit juice and milk.

Lunch: Steamed vegetables, whole wheat wheat tortilla and butter-milk.

Dinner: Vegetable soup, a large salad of all available vegetables in season and dates, figs and raisins.

Fresh fruits or fruit juices only should be taken be¬ween meals. All forms of white flour, white sugar, fried and greasy foods, condiments, preserves, tea and coffee should be avoided.

Treatment of Leucorrhoea:

Treatment through water is extremely beneficial in curing leucorrhoea. A cold hip bath twice a day for 10 minutes will help relieve congestion in the pelvic region and facilitate quick elimination of morbid matter. A warm vaginal douche at 30° to 40° C is beneficial for general cleaning and elimination of the putrid discharge. The procedure is to fill the douche can with three pints of warm water and hang it at a level of three feet above the body. The patient should lie with the hips slightly raised above the body and special nozzle applied for this purpose should be oiled and inserted slowly into the vagina. The flow can be regulated by the small valve at the nozzle. In severe cases of leucorrhoea, the douche should be taken daily.

The patient should completely relax and should avoid mental tension and worry. Abdominal exercise and walking are also helpful.
