    The Hidden Secret Of PMS

    Do you suffer from the symptoms of PMS? If you do, you are not alone. Premenstrual Syndrome, appearing 1 to 2 weeks prior to the beginning of menstruating, the symptoms can be varied and impact lives in different ways.   Some women find it only a mild annoyance. Other women find their symptoms are severe and can really impact their lives.  When you have to work, juggle family life and work through endless lists of chores and tasks, to have 1-2 weeks PMS means nearly half your life can be spent with reduced energy with physical and emotional pain. As you grow older, especially when you hit your 40’s, the symptoms can get worse as hormones change and fluctuate. It can leave you feeling frustrated, annoyed and fed up. But there are things you can do about it.

    Symptoms of PMS

    • Bloating, upset digestion, 
    • Fatigue
    • Emotional mood swings, irritability, anger & teary
    • Change in eating habits and cravings
    • Anxiety and depression
    • Brain fog, reduced memory and concentration
    • Headaches and migraines

    Each woman will have vary with their symptoms and you might find they change from month to month.

    Stress and PMS

    The exact causes are not proven. However, tackling your stress levels, especially in the first 2 weeks of your cycle, can have a really positive impact on your symptoms during the second half of your cycle. Stress can be emotional, physical and from what you consume. Stress is caused to the body from:

    • High sugar intake
    • Caffeine
    • Stress
    • Sleep disturbance
    • Erratic eating habits
    • Low vitamin and mineral levels.
    • Unresolved emotional issues
    • Stresses caused from worries in your life. eg. relationships, career, family and money

    How to Reduce Stress for Your PMS ?

    There are the obvious changes you can make to your life.

    • Take supplement vitamins and oils (speak with your local health shop or a trained nutritionist)
    • Reduce sugar, alcohol and caffeine
    • Get better sleep
    • Eat regular healthy meals
    • Tackle stresses in your life
    • Speak to a friend, therapist or support group to release unresolved issues
    • Take regular exercise 3 times a week

    Life can get very stressful and challenging at times, but if you manage to tackle these areas, you will find some reduction in your symptoms of PMS. You might find certain times in your life creates more stress and heightened symptoms. Having a young family can mean loss if sleep, bad eating and added pressure on you; feeling unhappy in your job can be a hard time; an unhappy relationship can create difficult emotional stress. Be mindful that this is what you are experiencing and know it will pass once you have taken suitable action.

    No matter what your reason is for PMS, be kind to yourself. Reduce your stress levels and increase your exercise. It is helpful to diary your tired days so you can make sure you do less on those days. Hormonal fluctuations are all part of being a woman, I am afraid. But as shown above, there are many things you can do to help gain more control over your symptoms.  We are all unique, so what works for you will be as unique as you are.
