Home Remedies For Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
Cramp-like pains in the lower abdomen at the start of a period are rarely a sign of illness but can cause great misery. Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) affects about 40 per cent of women and causes severe mood swings, headaches, bloating and sore breasts.
Home remedies for Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
Peppermint tea can help to ease the symptoms of PMS. Freshly cooked asparagus helps to control breast tenderness and bloating. Seaweed may also help - it's the natural iodine that relieves symptoms. Choose wakame, nori and kombu and use them in stews or soups.
A castor oil poultice placed on the lower abdomen will encourage the clearing of toxins through the lymphatic system. Soak an old hand towel in castor oil and place it over the abdomen, cover it with another towel and top it up with a hot water bottle.
Dandelion tea can help with bloating in the run-up to a period. It rids the body of excess fluids. Sage tea also helps, or you can eat either in a salad. Make up a cocktail of spinach, watercress, young nettle shoots, carrots and beetroot. Use the raw ingredients in a juicer if you have one, or cook the carrots and beetroot and process everything in a blender. This combination acts as a wonderful tonic at this time of the month.
Vitamin E has been found to be of benefit for symptoms of PMS.
Chase tree herb is effective in curing PMS cramps. Every morning put 10 drops of chase tree extract in a glass of water and drink.
Nutrition can be vital in controlling this condition. Make sure to get plenty of fibre and protein as well as complex carbohydrates which help expel excess estrogen from the body.
