Natural Remedies for PMS Symptoms

Are there really natural remedies for PMS symptoms that actually work? That's a tricky question. Although there are many different symptoms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome), they're all based on hormones and how well your endocrine system is working. If it's out of whack, so are you.

But certain natural remedies for PMS symptoms can work miracles. And combining the right PMS diet with PMS natural remedies can greatly reduce or even eliminate the symptoms.

The Most Common PMS Symptoms

Symptoms of PMS generally occur between ovulation and the beginning of menstrual bleeding. And many women report their PMS symptoms are worse during times of increased stress.

There's a saying that PMS stands for the time of the month when People Make Stupid mistakes all around you and you're the only one Possessing Mental Sanity. Or are you really temporarily insane? (If you don't think this is funny, you may be suffering from PMS symptoms right now!)

Fortunately, that temporary state of insanity and most of the other typical symptoms of PMS listed below are unnecessary and can be reversed with natural remedies for PMS symptoms.

Common physical symptoms of PMS can range from mild to severe and include:
  • Backaches, aching muscles and joints, headaches or cramps;

  • Food cravings, especially for sweets, fats and salty foods;

  • Water retention, abdominal bloating and weight gain;

  • Breast tenderness or pain from swelling;

  • Lack of energy and extreme fatigue;

  • Acne or skin breakouts;

  • Altered sex drive.
Psychological and behavioral symptoms include:
  • Anxiety,

  • Mood swings,

  • Aggressiveness,

  • Anger and irritability,

  • Depression and hopelessness,

  • Lack of clarity and inability to concentrate.
As you can see, both the physical and psychological symptoms of PMS are many and varied. And the severity of symptoms can vary from woman to woman and even from month to month.

Natural Remedies for PMS Symptoms

Certain natural remedies for PMS can wipe out or greatly decrease all of the unpleasant PMS symptoms listed above. Here are the healthy lifestyle steps to minimize your symptoms of PMS.
  • If you smoke, quit. Smoking has a negative effect on just about every bodily function.

  • Exercise regularly. Exercise increases natural brain chemicals (endorphins) that help to reduce both physical and psychological PMS symptoms and provide a feeling of well being.

  • Eat a healthy diet. A healthy low glycemic diet, high in whole grains, fresh omega 3 fish, colorful fruits and vegetables and low in sweets, salt, red meat, bad fats and high glycemic index refined carbohydrates can greatly decrease the painful symptoms of PMS.

  • Drink clean water. Instead of drinking non-nourishing sodas, alcoholic beverages, juices, sweetened drinks and caffeinated products, substitute plenty of pure, clean, healthy water.

  • Reduce stress. Use rest, relaxation and time management techniques to reduce stress.

  • Cultivate healthy relationships. Surround yourself with supportive, fun, positive people.

  • Take quality supplements. Specific nutritional health supplements have been shown to decrease PMS symptoms. Calcium and B complex help your body handle the daily stress of life. And the essential fatty acids, especially omega 3 fish oil, greatly improve your glandular and hormonal balance and reduce depression and the painful physical symptoms of PMS.
