CONDITIONS WE CAN HELP WITH...
Premenstrual SyndromePremenstrual 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.
