Homoeopathy and PMS

posted in: Homoeopathy, Menopause, Women | 0

PMS symptoms usually occur in the week preceding menstruation and as we know they can be debilitating and difficult to manage for many women. As well as using the indicated remedy that matches your symptoms it can be helpful to modify the diet by reducing or eliminating dairy, caffeine and red meat and consider supplements such as B6, B12, C, E, Selenium & Magnesium which is required by the liver to break down extra and inactive oestrogen. Craving chocolate may reveal a magnesium deficiency and supplementing this important mineral can help reduce stress and menstrual cramping.
