      Kebod:

      There is a link between essential fatty acids and our menstral cycles. In addition to the info below connecting EFA's with the menstrual cycle, we have been having a big discussion in the Iodine forum regarding the link between the hormonal system and the adrenal and endocrine systems. There is no doubt that there are direct links to these.

      If Oil Pulling does have effects on our addrenal glands, which can be thrown out of whack by anxiety...(think of the peace that some feel while OP) could have a certain effect. It's just a theory, but an interesting one. Women's periods are worse during times of higher stress and times when immune systems seem to be compromised....Where to go from here?

      Perhaps we need to see how EFA's effect our endocrine and adrenal systems. Perhaps it all comes full circle?

      the one thing I do know, we have some very complicated physiology. The sad part is, when you go to a doctor, they only treat one system, and also they are just trying to suppress symtoms. When they are monkeying with our addrenal gland, they throw off our endocrine system.....I'm sure of this and it will take a lot more research to prove this.

      Here is some info:

      In the second half of the menstrual cycle, omega-6 fatty acids, particularly arachidonic acid, are released. Subsequently, an increase in PGE2 occurs, causing uterine contractions leading to a lack of oxygen to the uterine muscles and the subsequent pain. Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, compete with omega-6 fatty acids and result in the production of the PGE-1 and 3 series. Based on these observations, the use of essential fatty acid supplementation can be very effective in the prevention and treatment of menstrual cramps.

      Supplementation with flax oil (high in omega-3 fatty acids), borage oil (high in LA and GLA), black currant oil (high in LA and GLA), evening primrose oil(high in LA and GLA), and fish oils (high in omega- 3 oils), is one way of favorably altering the synthesis of the beneficial prostaglandins; the end result likely will be less uterine contractions and less menstrual pains.

      OMEGA-6
      GLA - Gamma-Linolenic Acid can be obtained from Borage Oil, Blackcurrant Seed Oil and Evening Primrose Oil.
      LA - Linolenic Acid can be obtained from Sunflower Oil, Safflower Oil, Hemp Seed, Soya Bean, Walnut, Pumpkin-Seeds, Sesame Seeds and Flax/Linseeds.
      Omega-6 fatty acids are used in inflammatory conditions they are converted into prostaglandin (an inflammatory chemical).
      Also recommended for pre-menstrual syndrome as the GLA from Evening Primrose Oil has been demonstrated to improve bloating, irritability and depression associated with the menstrual cycle. Furthermore, reduce pre-menstrual breast pain and tenderness and help with hormone balance.
      GLA is also one of the most important nutrients for skin health and people with eczema and dry skin benefit from this supplement
      Recommended intake 150 - 1500mg per day of GLA.
