Four types of pre-menstrual syndrome (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.


I. Anxiety type (PMS-A)

Produces anxiety, irritability, mood swings and nervous tension. It is associated with high estrogens and low progesterone. It is aggravated by general poor nutrition and often involves liver congestion.
Reduce consumption of fat and dairy products.
Use bitter liver herbs and formulas such as the ones below

II. Craving type

Produces food cravings with headache (especially sugar), fatigue, dizziness, and palpitations. It is associated with low prostaglandins and low blood sugar. Avoid table salt and eat smaller, more-frequent meals without simple sugars and starches. Licorice root, magnesium and Omega-3 oils from sources such as Evening primrose oil may help.

III. Depression type (PMS-D)

Produces depression, crying, forgetfulness, confusion, and insomnia. It is associated with low estrogens, high progesterone, and elevated aldosterone. Magnesium levels tend to be very low and nerve-damaging heavy metals, especially lead, may be high.
Nervine supplements such as Nutri-Calm, Stress-J, and Mood Elevator may help. If not taking Nutri-Calm, add B complex vitamins and maybe some extra vitamin B6.

IV. Hyperhydration type (PMS-H)

Produces fluid retention with weight gain, breast tenderness, abdominal swelling and swelling of the hands and feet.
It is associated with elevated aldosterone. Diuretic herbs, including dandelion, parsley, and Kidney Activator (K) may reduce water retention. Consider adding hormonally-active herbs and foods such as black cohosh, Phyto Soy, whole grains, and green leafy vegetables. Supplemental magnesium, vitamin B6 and vitamin E, and Omega-3 oils from sources such as evening primrose oil may help.
