Especially for Women
In health, a woman's monthly cycles follow an intricate weave of shifting hormones. Like harmonious music and dance in a theater play, all the parts work together to produce a beautiful and thrilling result.
Hormones are not the enemy - they are the directors and messengers of this monthly performance. However, they can have a powerful physical and emotional influence on us. They must have this power in order to fulfill their intended function. Although cyclic changes in body and mind are normal, imbalances produce the equivalent of poor timing, miscues and forgotten lines - with the resulting internal confusion and growing discomfort that could only be expected under the circumstances.
The Four Types of PMS
The hormones in our bodies are especially sensitive to diet and nutrition. PMS and menstrual cramping are not diseases, but rather, symptoms of poor nutrition.
Medical science recognizes four types of pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS). These correspond to distinct hormonal imbalances and can be helped with distinct sets of natural therapies.
At puberty, the female body begins a cycle of preparing for possible conception about every 28 days (on the average). This process is regulated by a continual change of balance between the hormones estrogen and progesterone. As these hormones begin to diminish, the body experiences a shift in balance and prepares for a new phase known as menopause (meno meaning month and pause meaning cessation).
A woman may have one, some, or none of these symptoms. Symptoms can be very unpredictable and disturbing if a woman does not know they are related to menopause.
