  • At least 60% of all women suffer from PMS
  • It is most likely to occur in women in their thirties, but can occur as early as adolescence and as late as premenopause

    • Dietary changes
    • Eliminate caffeine
    • Stress reduction
    • Reflexology
    • Aerobic exercise
    • Full spectrum light
    • Reduce red meat
    • Vitamins
    • Natural Progesterone cream
    • Prozac - for severe cases and taken in the luteal phase of cycle (just before menses)
    * If using a cream, ensure it contains at least 400 mg of natural progesterone per once. (Synthetic progestin can actually increase PMS symptoms such as bloating, headache and weight gain.) Women who do well on natural progesterone are often the ones who experience a rapid change in mood that begins after ovulation and ends just as the menstral flow starts.

  • Take 100 mg vitamin B6 per day
  • Take a multivitamin that contains 400 to 800 mg of magnesium (magnesium deficiency is common in PMS) and 50 to 100 mg of most of the B complex. All women should take this all month long.
