Homeopathic PMS Relief

Homeopathic PMS Relief

Homeopathy is a system of treatments that believes that 'like can cure like.'
Miniscule doses of drugs are given that would in much larger doses cause symptoms
of the disease itself. This directs the body to begin to defend and repair itself.

In recent years the term Homeopathy has come to be an umbrella term including
natural treatments. These treatments can include phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens
are plant substances that work in a similar manner to estrogen. They have
isoflavones which are most like human estrogen. There is also natural progesterone
and DHEA.

DHEA-Dehydroepiandrosterone is a steroidal hormone that is produced from
cholesterol and secreted by the adrenal glands. Production of this master hormone is
at its peak when a woman is in her 20's and declines over time so that by age 70 we
produce only about 20% of what we made when we were younger. Men, as a result,
always have more DHEA than women. Since DHEA naturally declines supplementation
is not recommended. DHEA may be effective in combating aging, diabetes, heart
disease, obesity and PMS-premenstrual syndrome. It may also be effective in the
treatment of cancer.

Prescription medications including anti-depressants, pain medications, and
anti-inflammatories may be used for PMS relief. While these are certainly effective
some of them come with some serious side effects as do some OTC-over the
counter medications if not used properly. Many women seek to avoid these side
effects and turn toward supplements such as herbal supplements.

Herbal supplements are safer and have almost no side effects. Black Cohosh, Wild
Yam, and Chasteberry are just a few of the most common herbs used in
supplements to relieve PMS and menopause. They are effective and safer but should
not be added to your health regimen without discussing it with your physician. Some
herbs can affect the performance of prescription medications you may be taking for
other conditions.

Herbal supplements that are of high quality will have been extensively tested. The
metabolism of the ingredients should be examined at the molecular level. The
interactions of the ingredients' should also be closely examined. They should be made
according to pharmaceutical grade standards. All of this helps to guarantee that each
capsule will have the same dosage and same quality. Only standardized herbal
extracts are used to further guarantee consistent quality and dosing in each and
every capsule.
Conclusion

PMS undoubtedly brings with it some uncomfortable symptoms and though
traditional pharmaceutical treatments are effective, they have side effects most
women wish to avoid. Homeopathic PMS relief is becoming more popular precisely
because women want to avoid side effects of traditional treatments. You should
consult your doctor before adding anything to your health regimen. Homeopathic
PMS relief has become a generic term for any type of natural treatments.

There is no question that PMS
symptoms are real and for some
very severe. PMS is now being paid
attention to as real and treatable. For
a very long time it was not taken
seriously and women were told "It's
all in your head." The most severe
cases of PMS are called PMDD-
Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder.
There is a variety of treatments
available. You and your doctor can
decide which one will best fit your
needs. It might take a couple of trials
before just the right treatment is
discovered.
