Understanding PMS: Discover an effective way to regain hormonal balance

PMS is a term used to describe a broad range of period-related symptoms that are severe and recurrent, occurring from several days to as much as two weeks before your period. While over 150 physical and emotional symptoms are associated with PMS, the most common symptoms are irritability, anxiety, bloating, mood swings, depression, appetite changes, fatigue, water retention and breast tenderness.

Women frequently report that symptoms worsen with age or stressful times. By the way, technically speaking, mild menstrual cramps are not considered a PMS symptom, but PMS sufferers may experience cramps.

Here’s an important point: The symptoms of PMS are NOT inevitable. Changes in diet, natural techniques for stress reduction and other simple lifestyle adjustments will help to relieve PMS symptoms and achieve hormonal balance. One of the most overlooked ways to regain hormonal balance is through the improvement of relationships – after all, good relationships (love) automatically will reduce stress in your life. (a major trigger of PMS symptoms)

Reduce the physical and emotional toll of monthly periods and take back control of your health.  Join us for the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour with Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Andrea Maxim, one of southern Ontario’s leading naturopathic doctors.

3 ways to fix hormonal imbalances

As a naturopathic physician, Dr. Maxim emphasizes the fact that each person should be treated as an individual – no two people are exactly alike. But, there are some basic concepts to keep in mind:

Number one: Nourish and support the adrenals. Also known as the ‘stress glands,’ the adrenals play a critical role in overall hormone balance. They affect the thyroid and greatly impact reproductive hormones. Bottom line, the more stress you experience, the greater the risk of adrenal fatigue.

Number two: Treat the thyroid. Nearly all women concerned over hormonal imbalance will have underactive thyroid to some degree or another. Unfortunately, a poor diet – low in minerals and loaded with toxins like, fluoride in drinking water will add high levels of stress to the thyroid gland. That’s why lifestyle changes are a must, in order to effectively eliminate PMS symptoms.

Number three: Treat the reproductive organs. While the adrenals are the most important component of treating hormonal imbalance, the ovaries are also one of three primary organ systems known to impact hormonal balance.

The good news is that there are natural ways to bring your hormones back into balance, affecting not only the symptoms of PMS but a number of other components of your health. No matter how much you feel you have been suffering with conditions like PMS, given the right information, you can take back control of your life.

Join us for a program that will show you how to overcome PMS symptoms naturally, without the need for toxic drugs or risky medical procedures.

    Just eat a poor diet with loads of sugar and you can be sure of this happening. I now know and wish I had this information sooner. Not only was it uncomfortable, but my erratic moods were no fun for my family.

    Husbands should be told this, as they are clueless as to why their wife turned into a moody unpredictable person.

    • Wendy Allen

      Menopause is also hard on women.

    • Deanne Peplow

      I know someone that had a PMS hat, and wore it during her episodes, so her husband and 3 sons would know what was going on. LOL.

  • Kimberly Carson

    I would like to add stress and insufficient sleep and lack of exercise are also a contributing factor to this condition. A diet of junk food that includes greasy foods, soft drinks and sugary treats also bombard and pollute the body.

  • Hariet Fuller

    Women who experience PMS find if they overindulge by eating too much food will make the condition worst. I found that eating light helped with the cramps and mood.

  • Wendy Allen

    No gluten/dairy/soy/sugar/GMO…vitamins/good oils/minerals…probiotic…LDN..detoxing may help. No gluten may heal intestines and help more minerals absorb like Mg which may help cramps. Fish oil/evening primrose oil/Ca/Mg/probiotic/Zinc/Vit D3/Amour thyroid and more may help. Low thyroid can be due to gluten making antibodies to it. Gluten may affect hormones and every cell of the brain/body. Mg may help make insulin. Any food with a label may have hidden gluten and nuts not sold in the shell/meat basting/some spices and certified gluten free food may have 20ppm of gluten…too much.

    Drinking raspberry leaf tea everyday made my pain go away completely.
