PMS

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) is reported by 80% of women, over 150 symptoms have been attributed to PMS but it’s generally thought to involve feelings of irritability, anxiousness or anger. Physical changes include bloating, breast tenderness, food cravings, and headache. Basic adjustments in diet can make an impact: reduce alcohol, caffeine, salt, sugar, refined carbohydrates and sugar. Increase your intake of fruits, vegetables, legumes, seeds, fish, and healthy oils (i.e. fish, flaxseed, olive oil). Because the body is making more estrogen during the premenstrual phase, naturopathic medicine also takes into account optimal functioning of the liver and digestive tract.
