PMS – the days before the days

 

One third of all women know the difficulties of the “days before the days”. Symptoms are indeed different in each case. Some women suffer from swollen legs and others from swollen breasts while many others become irritable and depressed.

The typical signs occur one to two weeks before menstruation and rapidly disappear again with the onset of bleeding. Scientists presume that this phenomenon is instigated by a hormonal imbalance. The medical term for this is premenstrual syndrome (PMS). The good news is many natural healing herbs are grown which counter PMS. Monk’s Pepper is an effective remedy. This ancient healing plant should be taken as a tea. This is also true for the sun plant, St. John’s wort, which is known for its mood-lifting effects.

Furthermore, you can increase your feelings of wellness by improving your diet. We recommend high fiber foods containing a lot of magnesium, zinc and vitamin B as well as unsaturated fatty acids.

This can be found in saltwater fish, flaxseed oil, olive oil, linseed oil and safflower oil. If you are prone to water retention, you should switch to a low-salt diet and take regular rice days. You should also try to avoid caffeine, white sugar and animal fats whenever possible. Taking care of your psychological well-being is also important.

Stressful situations such as difficulties at work or in a relationship can exacerbate the symptoms. Let your soul relax occasionally with relaxation exercises such as autogenic training.
