Dr Eva Cwynar, PMS

1. Do you experience feelings of anxiety and irritability characteristic of mood swings?
2. Do you often feel sad or lethargic days before your menses?
3. Do you experience breast tenderness and bloating prior to your menstrual cycle?
4. Do you experience certain food cravings before and during your menstrual cycle?
5. Do you get headaches or uterine pain at the onset of menstruation?

If you answered, "yes" to two or more of these questions, you may be experiencing the cyclical, physical and emotional symptoms associated with PMS, caused by hormonal imbalance.

You know all about mood swings, feeling sad before your period, the weird food craving, the cramps. These are all the cyclical, physical and emotional symptoms associated with PMS, which is caused by hormonal imbalance.

These symptoms occur on a monthly basis, can last from a few days to a week before the menstrual period and cease at the onset of your period. Chronic or acute stress, a poor diet including sugar and caffeine, nutrient deficiencies such as EPA/DHA (essential fatty acids) and B vitamins and poor lifestyle habits can aggravate this condition.

Several natural therapies are available for the relief of symptoms associated with female hormonal imbalance, including nutritional supplementation healthy dietary habits, regular exercise, and lifestyle modifications. These natural therapies are effective in most women because they address such factors as fluctuating serotonin levels, poor liver detoxification, cravings, and the synthesis of hormone-like substances called prostaglandins that cause inflammation. All of these factors influence the likelihood and duration of the symptoms of hormonal imbalance.

Some of the benefits of following a targeted, nutritional and lifestyle program for hormonal imbalances include a restored sense of well-being and happiness, revitalized energy, relief from pain and inflammation, and increased relaxation with little or no side effects like those commonly associated with conventional treatments.
