Premenstrual Syndrome is a term that is used to describe the feelings associated with a variety of symptoms that women experience as part of their menstrual cycle. All women will suffer from some sort of PMS– unfortunately PMS is more severe for some women that for others. Symptoms can include irritability, anxiety, migraines, bloating and weight gain to name just a few.
If you are one of those who suffers from severe PMS, here are some natural solutions to help ensure that you are best equipped to deal with ‘that time of the month.’ You should:
o Get plenty of rest and exercise- Exercise is important because it can help counteract any possible weight gain that you may feel. It can also produce hormones that reduce stress. Rest can also help reduce stress and may reduce the severe effects of migraines.
o Get yourself a massage and a spa- In order to reduce effects of irritability and any soreness you may feel, consider getting a massage and a spa.
o Eat a healthy diet- A well rounded diet- plenty of grains, fruits, vegetables and water- is important to help alleviate some of the symptoms you can see with PMS. You should avoid too much caffeine and alcohol as these can exacerbate any irritability you may feel.
o Consider using a progesterone cream- Some studies have suggested that a major reason that women experience PMS symptoms is because there is an imbalance in hormone levels in the body. Progesterone is somewhat of a hormone regulator and by taking Progesterone Creams you can help redress this imbalance. Progesterone can also inhibit cravings so that you experience no weight gain.
Premenstrual Syndrome is uncomfortable for women and can be downright painful for some. If you suffer from severe PMS symptoms, consider some of the natural solutions mentioned above to help alleviate your suffering.
