Do You Suffer From Premenstrual Syndrome?

Dr. Nidhi Luthra

The best treatment for premenstrual syndrome in women is to get the whole body back to total health while treating the worst of symptoms. A good diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables should be taken. All stimulants including tea, salt, sugar and chocolate should be avoided.


A change in the mood and behaviour of a woman often occurs before menstruation along with some other vague physical symptoms. These changes are collectively termed as premenstrual syndrome (PMS). These symptoms might trouble a few women for one or two days and some for as many as ten days. In the normal course, these symptoms are ignore by women and are spontaneously relieved following menstruation.

The symptoms also vary from woman to woman and also in the same woman from one cycle to another. PMS may be present from puberty or may come and go during the reproductive years. Most women notice symptoms at sometime or the other, although some women are never affected. A small proportion experience symptoms severe enough to seriously disrupt the activities and health of a woman. This is when medical help becomes necessary.

The best treatment is to get the whole body back to total health while treating the worst of symptoms. A good diet with plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables should be taken. All stimulants including tea, salt, sugar and chocolate should be avoided. Do not smoke and be careful to reduce the amount of pollution you expose yourself to. Learn to relax.

The most common symptoms in PMS are abdominal bloating, br**st enlargement and tenderness and mood changes. Other physical symptoms include fluid retention leading to weight gain and swelling of the feet, ankles and hands, change in appetite, food craving and increased thirst. Skin disorders, hot flushes, headache, pelvic discomfort, backache, changes in bowel habit and frequent urination are also present in some.

When the hormonal is balance disturbed, an enormous amount of internal heat may be produced leading to sweats and fainting. Fainting is a rare occurrence and occurs in a very few women. A woman prone to fainting can take precautions to prevent it. Efforts to cool the body in the fortnight leading to the periods will prove fruitful.
