Premenstrual Syndrome – PMS


Premenstrual Syndrome – PMS

Premenstrual Syndrome – PMS

It may sound bizarre today, but in the late 1800’s opiates were used freely and extensively to treat such female ills as premenstrual syndrome symptoms. 

Opium was not uncommon to have handy, and even Heroin was available without prescription and these drugs were the “drugs of choice” for what is now called PMS ( premenstrual syndrome ). Back then it was more generally for “what ails you”. Today we define premenstrual syndrome as a condition that includes symptoms of fatigue, bloating,  headache, mood swings, and other undesirable feelings. Currently to treat these symptoms it is not Opium or Heroin, but Prozac that’s made freely available, with prescription of course, and other such drugs. Surely, since so much is now documented about long term ill effects from these hazardous substances, there must be a better treatment to provide relief from this suffering.

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.
