Remedies for PMS

Millions of women suffer from premenstrual syndrome. Bloating, breakouts, pain, headaches, cramp, fatigue and irritability, the list of symptoms attributed to PMS are endless.

Month after month, some women dread the onset of their periods and the discomfort that accompanies it. Some use over-the-counter painkillers or pills that suppress the symptoms of PMS. These painkillers only mask the important messages their body is trying to send to them. Cleansing toxins from the body may provide better relief to the problems, not just the symptoms!

Menstruation is a natural cleansing process but when pain and discomfort accompany it, the body is toxic and should be cleansed through natural methods.

Follow a Healthy, Organic Diet

Make healthy changes in your diet. Think of your menstrual time as a measure of what you have done to your body and mind throughout the month. If you have had a particularly stressful month, eaten processed, fried or sugary foods, or high amounts of red meat, you will probably have a more difficult menstrual cycle.

Yoga and PMS Switch to all organic products. It’s well worth the expense to free yourself from the added hormones and synthetic agents that wreak havoc on your own delicate hormonal balance. Increasing your water intake also helps.

Reducing the amounts of carbonated drinks, white flour, soy, sugar, coffee and alcohol you consume on a daily basis, your symptoms of PMS will be easier to deal with.

Try eating more whole sprouted grains, raw and fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as raw nuts and seeds. There are many benefits to following a raw food diet.

What You Can Do to Ease PMS Symptoms

  • Get plenty of rest. Get a good night’s rest throughout the month. This is the time when your body processes what you have done during the day. The ideal amount of sleep needed is 7 to 8 hours.
  • Increase Your Daily Amount of Calcium. I then recommend increasing the intake of magnesium and calcium. Calcium and magnesium orotate seems to work the best. The American Journal of OBGYN states that calcium intake can reduce PMS symptoms [1]. The Journal also recommends increasing foods that are rich in calcium such as leafy greens and calcium-fortified foods. If you don’t get enough calcium through your diet, then try using a calcium supplement.
  • Exercise regularly. Make sure to follow a regular exercise routine as well. This will increase your mood levels, detox the body, improve circulation, improve skin quality, and leave you with an overall feeling of well-being. Yoga, Pilates and meditation are very useful for reducing your stress levels, and are excellent for moving energy, both on a physical and mental level.

Consider acupuncture and herbs for relief from PMS and cramping. Give the cycle about 2 months of weekly attention to see major improvements. As PMS and cramping are most often associated with an imbalance in the liver, as well as blood circulation stagnation, acupuncture can help recirculate the qi (energy), balancing the body and mind.

An all-natural topical cream can also help ease PMS cramps and back pain. Women apply this and massage it into the lower abdominal areas to help relieve the pain and relax the muscles.

Remedies for PMS

Look for creams made with all-natural ingredients, such as organic aloe vera, apple cider vinegar, capsaicin, organic essentials oils and other unique cooling, soothing ingredients.

You don’t have to “put up” with the monthly struggle of PMS. In my research with thousands of women, I have seen that many women have resigned themselves to putting up with their monthly PMS and menopause symptoms [2]. They believe that it is normal. Acupuncture, herbs, and liver/colon and body cleansing have shown dramatic results.
