Premenstrual Syndrome

Premenstrual syndrome, or PMS, is defined as recurrent signs and symptoms that develop during the seven to fourteen days prior to menstruation. Symptoms vary from person to person often including; decreased energy levels, tension, irritability, depression, headache, altered sex drive, breast pain, backache, abdominal bloating and swelling of the fingers and ankles. These symptoms have physical, psychological and emotional consequences. PMS is estimated to affect 30-40% of menstruating women. In most cases symptoms are mild, however in approximately 10% of cases symptoms are debilitating.

There are many triggering factors that can be implicated in this cyclical condition, these include: high caffeine intake, tobacco use, dietary deficiencies - certain vitamin and mineral deficiencies, particularly magnesium, manganese and vitamin E, family history and stress.

By identifying the causative factors an appropriate treatment can be started which include dietary intervention, nutritional supplements and exercise.

At Nutrition Mission we can aid the regulation of your monthly cycle, reducing and eliminating the signs and symptoms people accept as 'normal' yet have debilitating effects.
I am so thankful Nutrition Mission was recommended to me. I am going through the worst time of my life with my husband and partner of 45 years seriously ill with Cancer, and if I had not had Nutrition Mission's expert guidance and very kind support, I would not have been able to help him as I have. All my family will now benefit from the knowledge Nutrition Mission has shared with me
