Help with PMS
Each month like clockwork, many women suffer from a rather strange collection of symptoms. They may become irritable, emotional and forgetful. They may have cravings for food like French fries or chocolate. And they may hate the way they look because they feel bloated all the time. If you’re a woman who finds yourself experiencing these symptoms, you may need help with PMS (premenstrual syndrome).
Natural Relief for PMS Symptoms
Premenstrual syndrome is a name given to a group of symptoms that women suffer from around their menstrual cycle. These symptoms may include fatigue, irritability, food cravings, bloating, breast tenderness, headaches, body aches, acne and gastro-intestinal symptoms.
PMS is caused by a constellation of immune system, hormonal system and autonomic nervous system imbalances that will fluctuate throughout your monthly cycle. At MD Wellness a holistic medical doctor will measure the various metabolic imbalances contributing to your symptoms. Once these imbalances are identified, they can then be rectified through metabolic therapy.
Causes of PMS
Elevated estrogen levels
Low progesterone levels
PMS and Diet
Women who suffer from PMS should be very careful about consuming certain food products. Polyunsaturated vegetable oils (which are high in omega-6 fatty acids) can exacerbate PMS by adversely affecting prostaglandin balance. Also sugar, high carbohydrate and low fat, low protein diets can contribute to this problem. Patients should avoid all vegetable oils except olive oil and coconut oil. Caffeine in the form of coffee, tea, soda and chocolate can also worsen PMS symptoms in certain women.
