PMS: Can be Avoided

More than seventy percent women go through bloating, headaches, and mood swings etc. that can damage their health, relationship, and career.

But the good news is: this suffering can be ended. No need for endurance.

Did you know…..

A huge quantity of women suffer from premenstrual syndrome (PMS), such as headaches, sugar cravings, bloating, depression, mood swings, anxiety, fluid retention, sleep disturbances, and irritability. While some women need medical assistance sincetheir symptoms are severe. So much so that they are given a new name: Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD).

These sufferings are pointless and can be avoided since the symptoms are cropped up by stress, environmental toxins, and bad habits.

Hush now, because the BIG PHARMA, wants to keep it a secret! This is due to the fact that their businesses run from anti-inflammatory medicines to birth control pills, and so on. They obviously don’t want to lose their market in exchange for awareness for the common public.

Famous drugs treat one symptom, and cause other side-effect diseases. Like gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) turn off production of progesterone and estrogen, but causes osteoporosis as a reaction. Similarly, danazol, an ovulation suppressant, may also increase acne, facial growth, and give you deeper voice.

Living up to its reputation, the drug industry has created PMDD (a new disease), that validates, PMS symptoms as inevitable, and need to be addressed via a patent drug Sarafem (Prozac).

So, if we believe this assumption then we also have to believe that more than seventy percent women are unwell. That’s absurd! It is to say that all women are born with a disease!!! I DON’T THINK SO!!!!

View a Case History of my Client:

A woman around 37 complained of all the symptoms of PMS. These symptoms included fatigue, anxiety, depression, sugar craving, and food intolerance.

There was increase in estrogen levels, and progesterone was decreased either absolutely or relatively.

She also complained about bloating, hot flashes, acne, memory problems, joint pain, and low sex drive.

Her dietary habits included caffeine intake, junk food such as chips, cheerios, chocolates, and ice cream. Along with bakery items like bagels, donuts, and lots of dairy including cheese.

Good news is this that she overcame all these symptoms of PMS by simply following my below given recommendations. YES! WITHOUT MEDICATION.

As some of us know that caffeine, sugar, alcohol, inactivity, and stress all worsen PMS. Even dairy products, due to high hormone content, can cause hormonal imbalances in you.

So, I made certain dietary changes, added supplements and herbs, and made her exercise. Within a couple of cycles, her life changed. She lost weight, had an energy boost, and dramatically all her symptoms subsided. Her mood improved, her dry skin, and acne cleared up.

My approach here is based upon “FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE.

The cause in this regard was hormonal imbalance, poor diet and life style. As the cause was eradicated, the body re-boosted, and total reparation took placed, and balance was made.

So here goes…..


My Recommendations are:


  • Have a Clean Diet.
  • Eliminate caffeine
  • Eliminate alcohol
  • Eliminate sugar, refined flour, and processed items.
  • Balance your blood sugar by eating protein, such as a protein shake, eggs, and nut butters, for breakfast.
  • Don’t skip meals; eat small meals, moderately, daily.
  • Don’t eat three hours before going to bed.
  • Eliminate dairy, and other food allergens like gluten.
  • Eat more fiber based diet like fruits, veggies, beans, nuts, whole grains, and seeds. I like you to include 2 tbsp. of ground flaxseeds to balance hormones, and ease constipation. Add them to your smoothies, salads, etc.
  • Eat more omega-3 fatty acids in form of cold water wishes like wild salmon, sardines and herring along with walnut, and omega 3 fortified eggs.
  • Have organic products especially meat, to get rid of environmental estrogens from pesticides.

  1. Nutritional Supplement to Include.

I suggest the following:

  • Vitamin B12—-1000 mcg
  • Vitamin B6—–100 mg
  • Folate—–800 mcg
  • Calcium Citrate—-600 mg
  • Magnesium citrate——600 mg
  • DHA/EPA (Omega 3)—–1000 mg
  • Evening primrose oil——500 mg capsules (twice daily)
  • Taurine (liver detoxifier)—–500 mg
  • A Good Multivitamin

Herbs that helps include…….

  • Chasteberry fruit extract (Vitex Agnus-astus)

Cramp bark (Viburum opulus) and Wild yam (Dioscorea villosa)

  • Dandelion root
  • Flax seeds
  • Probiotic supplement.

  1.  Exercise.

Doing exercise is a must. Exercise for 30 minutes, 5 times a week.

  1. Counter Stress.

Coping up with stress is very important. Take massage, hot bath before bedtime, indulge in meditation, deep breathing exercises or yoga. All the techniques can help solves hormonal problems.

  1. Alternative Medicine Helps.

Homeopathy and acupuncture helps a lot too. One study shows promise in treating PMS with homeopathy.
