Yoga and naturopathy for Leucorrhoea

In ayurveda, leucorrhoea is known as shveta pradar, where shveta means ‘white’, and pradar means ‘discharge’. Excessive discharge of a white, sticky, foul-smelling material from the vagina is called leucorrhoea. This common problem may occur due to unhygienic conditions, infection of the genital tract, or impaired immune function. Excessive intake of heavy, oily, cold, sweet, and dense foods, consumption of too much milk, butter, yogurt, and cheese, overindulgence in sexual activity, repeated abortions or miscarriages, following improper diet and lifestyle during menstrual cycles, improper vaginal hygiene etc can cause leucorrhoea.
