Beat the PMS Pain with Homeopathy

Beat the PMS Pain with Homeopathy

A 27-year-old working professional in an IT company, Suchitra, has been experiencing severe mood swings and erratic emotions since her period started at the age of 15 but has always dismissed to spot the symptoms.

It wasn’t until she was called in by her boss for some glaring errors in a very important presentation that she realized how much her symptoms affected her daily life. Only after visiting the doctor, she got to know about something called as Premenstrual Syndrome symptoms (PMS).

The doctor put her on oral contraception as part of PMS treatment that eased physical symptoms like bad cramps and her mood preceding her periods filled with despair and suicidal thoughts. The PMS treatment was giving temporary relief to Suchitra but there was no long-term relief from PMS pain and symptoms.

The week before each period would always be a nightmare for her. Seemingly minor problems at work would drive her to tears; she would struggle to complete a task at hand, have problems sleeping and would pick fights with her spouse and anyone else in her immediate vicinity.

Let us understand in brief, what is premenstrual syndrome?

Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a combination of physical and emotional symptoms that occur one or two weeks before a woman's period. Different women experience different symptoms, and they get better once the bleeding begins.

The most common premenstrual syndrome symptoms include mood swings, depression, food cravings, tender breasts, bloating, feeling tired, irritability and fatigue. These are normal symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. But when they disturb a woman’s daily life, they are called PMS.

What can you do with PMS?

If you are one of those who suffer from unpleasant symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, you can help your doctor by recording on a calendar, the exact date on which your symptoms appear or disappear. After three or four months, you will be able to coordinate the appearance of these symptoms with the onset of menstruation. However, not all premenstrual syndrome symptoms can be attributed to PMS, but if there is a rhythmical recurrence of the symptoms, always at the same menstrual phase, then you can be sure that the condition is due to premenstrual syndrome and is the right time to contact a doctor.

PMS Treatment in Homeopathy

Women’s hormones are an intricate, delicate, and incredibly complex symphony - a symphony that is needed in order to carry out the miraculous feat of conception, pregnancy, childbirth, and nursing a newborn baby. This ever-shifting symphony can easily be thrown out of whack. To come back into balance, nature offers us homeopathy.

The disagreeable character of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is sufficiently mild to be tolerated by most; in some it induces considerable misery. One of the simplest methods of treating premenstrual syndrome is to approach a qualified and experienced homeopathy.

Advantages of treating your PMS symptoms with Homeopathy:

  • Holistic approach
  • Understands the root cause of the disease
  • Identifies the distressing complaints
  • Customized treatment plan

PMS treatment in homeopathy helps in reducing the pain and discomfort before and during periods. It also helps you to get rid of severe headaches which you might experience during those painful days of PMS.

Homeopathy is a mind-body medicine; therefore, it reduces emotional hypersensitivity such as irritability, anger, sadness and dislikes during the ‘moment’.

Besides taking PMS treatment, you can ease the pain up to some extinct by paying attention to your lifestyle:

  • Avoid alcohol and caffeine (including chocolate). Caffeine can worsen PMS pain by contributing to breast tenderness, nervous tension and anxiety
  • Start eating an anti-inflammatory diet. Especially eliminate polyunsaturated and trans-fats. They promote inflammation that can worsen premenstrual syndrome symptoms
  • Get plenty of omega-3s (from salmon, sardines and other cold water fish, freshly ground flaxseed, and walnuts). They help ease cramps
  • Limit your intake of salt, sugar, alcohol and fat throughout the month; they all contribute to the fluid retention and bloating that can occur with PMS pain
  • Get at least 30 minutes a day of aerobic exercise such as walking, bicycling or swimming to improve mood, relieve stress and ease premenstrual syndrome symptoms in general.
