Fight PMS with Food
Premenstrual syndrome is an extreme form of stress that produces physical and psychological wear and tear on a woman's body throughout the month, but especially prior to and during menstruation.
Stop the self-perpetuating downward spiral of poor eating habits, poor nutrition and excessive stress, and improve your health throughout the month. Include other strategies such as meditation, relaxation techniques and lifestyle changes -- all keys to reducing PMS.
Always visit a physician before making any significant dietary change. A discussion with a physician can assure you that PMS is a legitimate problem and not just a figment of the imagination or a joke. Discuss dietary supplements. Magnesium, zinc and Vitamin B-6 seem to be helpful, but ask for specific advice about help with controlling premenstrual syndrome.
