Living a Quarter of your life in hell, almost like a different personality inside of you. Thank you, PMS!!
Negative repetition of thoughts, foggy head, forgetfulness, cramps, feeling low, fatigue, aches, depression, anxiety, fear, being grumpy, feeling crabby.
For an entire week, or sometimes 2.
It affects relationships, work, and pretty much your everyday life. No wonder some ancient cultures had a practice of letting a menstruating woman isolate, and just let her be.
If you are like me, I am sure you have tried it all including the Birth control pills, that your Ob/Gyn told you will relieve the symptoms. The Birth Control Pills actually made things worse. Multiply all the symptoms times two.
Besides cleaning up what I eat. Check out the recipes on my blog to see a glimpse of the food I eat in a day. Here are some of the things that actually worked for me.
Vitex or Chaste Berry
One of the reasons for PMS symptoms is hormone imbalance. Vitex Berry is also known as The Women’s Herb or Chaste Tree Berry has been used by women for centuries to balance hormones. It rebalances the hormone levels and hence helps prevent the PMS symptoms as well as generally helps with physical and emotional well-being. Vitex Berry promotes a healthy balance of hormones and helps with general good reproductive health as well as preventing acne and promoting a healthy menstrual cycle. If you are looking to try one, try this Vitex Berry Hormone Balance Supplement from Gaia Herbs.
Red Raspberry Leaf Tablets
I remember using these red raspberry leaf tablets as well as tea to induce labor during my first pregnancy. Little did I know that these are also great to regulate and easy the PMS symptoms. Bonus points to Red Raspberry Leaf tablets though that they also help regulate Blood Pressure if you suffer from high blood Pressure.
I just take these along with the Red Clover Blossom 5-7 days before the cycle start date and continue through the week 1 of the cycle.
