3-Anemia (a B12/B9/Iron deficiency) causes changes in blood flow and oxygen deficiency
4-Carbohydrate/grain rich diet depletes minerals/electrolytes/B vitamins and increase bloating
5-Over-exercising/under-eating stresses your brain/pituitary gland into improper hormone releasing patterns
6-Pelvis Stress from improper structure of surrounding musculoskeletal system

A few Places to start:
Most female disorders will be quickly influenced by a change to a Paleo Diet lifestyle. We suggest switching to a macro nutrient balance of 70% of diet being fat and protein based while only 30% or less being carbohydrate based. We suggest that most carbohydrates come from vegetable sources. Protein is anything with fins, feathers, feet or eggs. Healthy fats may include animal sources from grass fed grazing animals or wild caught fish. Plant fats include olives, avocado, coconut and other nut products as well.
Note: peanuts are high in prostaglandins so exclude those. Also, "quickly influenced" means a few months not a few days.
