Natural Relief for PMS

One minute youíre fine, the next youíre unexpectedly cranky. Maybe itís PMS. Premenstrual Syndrome affects your whole family. Making changes can lessen its symptoms and create more harmony in your home.

Food issues. Low blood sugar can make you anxious and leads to cravings for unhealthy foods. Eat every four hours to stop this cycle. Choose foods that your body processes slowly: lean proteins (chicken, turkey, fish) and vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower and peppers. Avoid white flour, sugar, potatoes and carrots. They raise blood sugar quickly.

Drink water. Soda is packed with sugar and alcohol breaks down into sugar. Either way, itís bad news. Caffeine can cause mood swings, breast tenderness and anxiety. All of these can worsen symptoms.

Take your vitamins and minerals. Some women find that taking a multivitamin alleviates moodiness and bloating. Check with your doctor to see if this is the right option for you.

Exercise and relaxation. Exercise helps reduce anxiety and elevates your mood naturally. Yoga provides both exercise and relaxation. Spending time in quiet reflection, or in a warm bath, may be just what you need to feel like yourself again.
