How to Control PMS Naturally

you can take to control PMS naturally and that's what I'm going to discuss in this
The problem with curing PMS once and for all is that scientists really just don't know
how specific hormone changes in women that occur during the menstrual cycle
trigger the symptoms of PMS, which makes it incredibly difficult to defeat it outright.
So what can you do? Well first of all you should look at dietary changes. It's no
secret that foods have long been known to affect mood and because of this
changing the types of foods that you eat can help minimize PMS symptoms in some
First off try avoiding sweets because sugary foods alter blood sugar levels and can
exacerbate depression as well as headache and anxiety or fatigue. Even artificial
sweeteners are bad so stay away from them if possible.
Next you should try to avoid alcohol because it also produces a sugar high and can
act as a depressant. Studies have shown that many women are especially sensitive
to booze just before their menstrual period so keep that in mind.
Next you should try to avoid caffeine because it can cause anxiety. Giving up caffeine
is easier said than done and I have no illusions to the fact that it just may not be
possible for you to give it up so instead of that, try to at least avoid drinking it on an
empty stomach and that should at least help a little.
Finally try to eat six small meals a day instead of the normal three that we are used
to. Why is this important? Well, if you go for too long of period without food, your
blood sugar will drop. When your blood sugar drops it can exacerbate anxiety and
also headache and fatigue.
The problem with this strategy is that you have to do it constantly, not just during
times of PMS symptoms. Also it may take up to three months or longer before you
start to notice any sizable change when engaging in this specific strategy and that
can be a long time to change your eating habits so dramatically but it can have a
huge effect and so it might just be worth your effort.
So there you have several very natural methods for controlling premenstrual
syndrome. Not all of them will work for you and some of them may work better
than others so it may just be the case that you have to mix and match and try
different methods until you find the right mix for you.

In this article today I would like to
discuss several different methods to
control premenstrual syndrome or
PMS as it is referred to in a more
natural sort of way without relying on
harsh drugs or chemicals.
Premenstrual syndrome has been the
bane of existence for both women
and even men since the history of the
world began. It's shameful that this
condition still exists in our modern era
of technology and medical
enhancements; it should be the first
thing on our list of things to cure.
Fortunately there are many steps
