Most women don’t think about PMS until it actually occurs; it’s one of those conditions that is also banished from conversation until it strikes, and even then endured in silence. There’s help — natural, side-effect free homeopathy for harmonious transformation.
Are you one of those who remain physically healthy all the month, and yet suffer from a feeling of tension a week or so before the menstrual period? If you are, you are in the company of the 40-50 out of the 100 women who suffer from a similar problem. Probably like them, you have uncomplainingly accepted the symptoms that occur, because you assumed that it was natural for a woman not to feel well once a month.
Characteristically, before the menstrual period, the symptoms appear with monthly regularity in an otherwise normal, healthy woman, and disappear the moment menstruation begins. This is called as Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS).
Prevalence of PMS
Common Symptoms of PMS
Most common among the symptoms encountered are general tension and irritability, depression and anxiety, palpitation, or a marked thirst. Physical signs trouble some women, like the swelling of the face, hands and feet or painful swellings of the breasts. Her abdomen may be so blown up that her clothes may not fit her, the skin becomes greasier, and skin diseases like pimples (acne) become worse at this time. Ulcers of the mouth, congestion of the nose, and sinuses are also common at this time.
Causes of PMS
The cause of premenstrual syndrome has been the source of much research and it is now admitted by almost all scientists that the imbalance of the sex hormones, oestrogen and progesterone, brings about a disturbance in the delicate mechanism of a female body.
A number of things which may contribute to the symptoms of PMS are:

What you can do with PMS?
If you are one of those who suffer unpleasant symptoms before a period, 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 symptoms can be attributed to premenstrual syndrome, 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.
Homeopathy Treatment for PMS
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.

How Homeopathy helps in treating PMS?
Clinical Trial: Efficacy of Homeopathy in treating PMS
Critics contend that alternative therapies in general and homeopathy in particular lack clear scientific evaluation of efficacy. Controlled clinical trials, they aver, are urgently needed, especially for conditions that are not helped by conventional methods. The objective of the following work was to assess the efficacy of homeopathic treatment in relieving symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
It was a randomised controlled double-blind clinical trial. Two months baseline assessment with post-intervention follow-up for three months was conducted at Hadassah Hospital’s outpatient gynaecology clinic in Jerusalem, Israel. The subjects were 20 women, aged 20-48, suffering from PMS.
Homeopathic intervention was chosen individually for each patient, according to a model of symptom clusters. Recruited volunteers with PMS were treated randomly with one oral dose of a homeopathic medication, or placebo (dummy pill). The main outcome measure was scores of a daily menstrual distress questionnaire (MDQ) before and after treatment. Psychological tests for suggestibility were used to examine the possible effects of suggestion. Mean MDQ scores fell from 0.44 to 0.13 (P<0.05) with active treatment, and from 0.38 to 0.34 with placebo (between group P=0.057). Improvement >30 per cent was observed in 90 per cent of patients receiving active treatment and 37.5 per cent receiving placebo (P=0.048). Homeopathic treatment was found to be effective in alleviating the symptoms of PMS in comparison to placebo.
