PMS and PMDD
Pre-Menstrual Symptoms (PMS) is a category of symptoms that women can experience as part of their monthly menstrual cycle. PMS symptoms can vary month-to-month and are typically greatly affected by stress.
Symptoms emerge after ovulation but before the start of the menstrual flow at which point they subside. Symptoms can include irritability, anxiety, sadness, bloating, sleep disorders, low back pain and headaches.
Hormones are controlled through our endocrine system. Emotions control our hormones through biochemical changes in the brain which are then secreted into the blood stream through endocrine glands.
Those women who experience severely disabling PMS symptoms may have a syndrome which is called Pre-Menstrual Disorphic Disorder (PMDD). It is typically treated with anti-depression medication.
Natural medical treatment of PMS/PMDD effectively addresses the root cause of the hormonal imbalance in the Endocrine system which results in the monthly symptoms.
Bringing balance back to your emotional, physical and mental well-being gently and effectively is the focus of energy medicine.
