If you suffer from PMS symptoms, like cramping, headaches, bloating, irritability, you are definitely NOT alone.
Fully 80% of women experience some degree of discomfort related to their menstrual cycle. PMS has not been completely understood, but what is known is that opiate withdrawal symptoms are quite similar to PMS symptoms. Additionally, hormone changes occur in the body which give some internal signal to lower the endorphins in the body, and it is thought that these lowered endorphin levels are at least in part responsible for the headaches, cramps, and other undesirable symptoms of PMS. Often times the prescribing of psychotropic drugs like Prozac leads to further difficulties, while not correcting the parts of the problem that could have been corrected through diet change and targeted nutritional and other types of therapy.
Natural, drug-free methods can effectively relieve PMS symptoms.
