In Part 1 of this article, I addressed three natural remedies for Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS), including yeast-free nutrition, herbal detox, and hormonal regeneration. A yeast-free nutritional approach will prevent allergens such as simple sugars, dairy, wheat, and yeasts from entering the body. In the pre-menstrual period, I recommended to increase the intake of complex carbohydrates and crucifers such as broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and brussel sprouts. This type of food will help reduce the amount of hormones such as prostaglandin, estrogen, progesterone and prolactin, and thus reduce water retention, bloating, weight gain, and mood swings.
If you want to learn more about what you can eat and what you should avoid, follow my yeast-free cookbook: Healthy and Tasty: Dr. J’s Anti-Yeast Cooking. Secondly, go on our Herbal Detox (consisting of Yeast-Para Control and Cleansing-Balance Tea ) and hormonal regeneration product with Female Vitality. Our Herbal Detox program removes excess yeasts and parasites, thus cleaning up existing toxins. Female Vitality balances the female hormonal system and allows the female hormones to work for you instead of against you.
The following are additional natural remedies for PMS:
Exercise is particularly helpful with PMS because it generates endorphins, a morphine from within. Endorphin is an opium-like, natural substance which reduces pain and gives a calm, high feeling (without the use of drugs)! Again, don’t wait until you are in the middle of PMS to exercise. Do 30 minutes of slow walking every day. This type of exercise will improve your blood circulation and thus reduce the tendency of water retention and muscle aches. The heavy feeling and cramps in your pelvic area can also be reduced or eliminated. Regular exercise can also strengthen the muscle tone in your lower abdomen and thus increase the tolerance for pain or discomfort. A side benefit is that it also helps you become a better lover when you have tight, instead of loose, muscles. And remember, slow walking is free of charge!
2) Hands-On Healing:
Hands-on healing techniques such as therapeutic touch and gentle chiropractic adjustment known as cranio-sacral technique can be very soothing during the onset of PMS. If you feel too uncomfortable to have anyone touch you while experiencing severe cramps, just put your hand(s) on the area that is cramping, such as the lower abdomen or hip areas. The healing energy in your own hands can reduce the cramps and give some relief to pain. You can do this while lying down or sitting up, such as while driving.
3) Stress Management:
Women who are under heavy emotional stress often suffer from more PMS. Your body and mind affect each other at all times. Emotional stress can cause many kinds of physical problems including PMS. Remember, all physical illnesses have symbolic meanings. PMS involves the female reproductive system. It requires the examination of emotional issues concerning one’s femininity. A woman with a positive self-image usually takes good care of herself and does not give PMS a chance to creep in or sustain itself.
The Chinese have long believed that if a young woman has PMS, she will grow out of it after she is married. Why? Sexercise!
Sex is the best remedy for PMS. Good sex increases self-esteem and improves blood circulation. When you enjoy good quality and quantity of sex with the right partner, you feel loved and energized.
Women who suffer from PMS or menopause usually are sexually inactive whether they are married or not. Sexual desire and potency do not have to decline with age. Some of my clients enjoy frequent sex (at least three or four times a week) in their 80s! You are never too old or too tired for sex! Remember two principles: 1) you either use it or lose it; and 2) practice makes perfect! When you learn to enjoy sex on a regular basis, you will learn to enjoy being a female. Also remember, Female Vitality can help improve sexual function. When you enjoy being a female or being who you are, chances are you will say goodbye to PMS!
