Irritability, anxiety, fatigue, bloating, breast tenderness, headaches, moodiness and cramping are all not-so-lovely symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. If you are reading this, I assume that you are one of the many women who can relate to one or more of these unfortunate monthly occurrences.
Before we touch on how to address these symptoms naturally, let’s talk about why they happen. Hormones play a major role in PMS as well as stress which can enhance the symptoms even more. Some studies have shown that vitamin and mineral deficiencies such as Calcium and Magnesium have been linked to PMS as well. With that said, diet also contributes largely to our deficiencies and PMS in general. Caffeine from chocolate and beverages is also thought to enhance PMS symptoms, so ladies fight that food craving and avoid those tasty treats for a few days before you menstruate.
Alright now for the good stuff…
