Over 90% of most women have suffered from premenstrual symptoms (PMS) of some form, that’s quite a staggering statistic.

PMS is a general term for premenstrual symptoms, which describes a range of physical and psychological symptoms, which can happen between ovulation and the start of your period that can affect women each month. The good news is that changes can be made through diet and lifestyle.

Any woman who suffers will know symptoms can be debilitating and can range from mild to severe lasting for a couple of days to over a week in some extreme cases. While it can be complex PMS isn't something you just have to put up with, it is possible that you can have a symptom free monthly cycle.
 
If you are experiencing PMS symptoms read on to find out some simple steps that you can take to help you.
 
1. Increase dietary (insoluble) fibre
 
Flaxseed (linseeds), seeds, whole grains, fruit & vegetables. In some cases excess oestrogen in relation to progesterone can be a driver in PMS, therefore insoluble dietary fibre can be useful to eliminate the excess oestrogen from the body via the bowel helping to restore balance.
 
2. Reduce sugar and caffeine - making subtle changes in these areas can bring much-needed relief. Research has shown that women who have diets high in sugar the more severe her symptoms will be. Most women crave comfort sugary food around the time of their period so you are not alone. A range of naturally sweet raw and natural ingredients can give you the best of both worlds. Choose herbal or fruit teas.
 
3. Reduce your stress - easier said than done, but this really is crucial, as stress raises the stress hormones, cortisol and adrenaline, which in turn cause an imbalance to our hormones oestrogen and progesterone.
 
4. Reduce alcohol - yes, it’s true, alcohol reduces the liver's ability to detoxify your hormones. Alcohol affects your blood sugar fluctuations which really are bad news for PMS. Your liver is your best friend when it comes to hormone health, so moderation is key here.
 
Like with any health problem the most important step to take is the first one. Food is only part of the puzzle and there is often a little more digging to find out the root cause. If you feel that you need extra support and you’re committed to making positive changes get in touch with Nikki Harris - Women's Hormone Health.
