Menstruation is a physiological process, which is associated with the ability to reproduce. It also indicates that genital system is working normally. Menarche rules out some of the abnormalities of genital system. Like that regular menstrual cycle every month without any difficulties shows a healthy female to some extent, who is well prepared to procreate. In Ayurvedic texts, rajah kala is not only to prepare the body for conception and pregnancy but also to cleanse toxins out of the system. So great importance is given to Aahar (diet), Vihar (life style) and Vichar (psychological status) in Ayurveda. Since birth to death, different regimens are advised by our great Acharyas to stay healthy in every stage of life, though they have elaborately discussed the therapeutic part as well on the other hand Dincharya (daily routine), Ritucharya (seasonal regimens), Garbhadhan Vidhi (regimen to be followed by both partners to get shreyasi praja), Garbhini Paricharya (regimens to be followed during pregnancy), Sutika Paricharya (regimen to be followed during puerperium) etc are advised. In the same manner Acharyas have also elaborately described Rajaswala Paricharya in, it shows that they didn’t ignore the health of the woman, so that she stays healthy, happy and can get a healthy progeny. But in current era people are not taking healthy diet, not exercising, living a sedentary lifestyle; because of this, health is getting poor and they suffer from different ailments; menstrual disorders are also the result of unhealthy life style. And stressful environment adds to all these problems. So it becomes more relevant to follow all these regimens to live a healthy life. Rajaswala Paricharya is one of the regimens to be followed; it allows the woman to get a proper rest by not indulging her in household chores and other activities; her diet and psychological status are also taken care of. Acharyas have described this regimen for first three days of menstruation, what should a rajaswala eat when digestion is poor, do’s & don’ts during this period, its effect on the foetus. And they also explained the regimen for fourh day. This regimen not only makes the menstrual cycle comfortable but also adds to get a fruitful progeny. It is a boon to follow it with some modifications according to the sources available as it is described by the Acharyas according to the sources available during that era.
