It’s not a secret. Women have been dealing with menstrual cycles since the beginning of time and the Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) symptoms that come with it. PMS is the physical, psychological and emotional symptoms that come along with “that time of the month”.

This is the one tricky time that can turn your significant other into a completely different person. You may think this is just emotional but a lot more can come with it. In addition to mood swings, an increase of appetite and bloating, some women can find themselves having a “heavy flow”.  No one really knows what causes PMS but about 3 out of 4 women experience it at some point.

Don't Ignore It
You might be so used to your heavy cycle that you won’t notice that it’s actually preventable. Most women think that these symptoms just happen and that nothing can be done about it. In actuality many things can be done to decrease your PMS symptoms especially that heavy flow. Heavy flows are caused by what you eat! Women that experience this disaster are victims of a poor diet and Anemia in particular. Anemia can be caused when you don’t consume enough iron.  

This can also cause you to have terrible fatigue that just doesn’t seem to go away no matter how many hours you sleep. Lack of Iron has the potential to even make your skin pale and give you heart attack-like symptoms! This may seem scary but we have a solution for you.

Reduce It Naturally
One thing you can do to prevent this it to consume more Iron, obviously! Start making it a habit of having meals with more in it. You can achieve this with Clams, Oysters, Soybeans, Pumpkin Seed Kernels and Blackstrap Molasses which are the top 5 sources of Irons. If that doesn’t work you can also give yourself a little dose of Shepherd’s Purse. This herb belongs to the mustard family of plants and is best used as an astringent. It constricts blood vessels and reduces blood flow causing that pesky heavy flow to be non-existent.

You can even use it to reduce any naturally occurring bleeding like nose bleeds. Herbalists even use it to treat ulcers and bites. Grab some Shepherd’s Purse (key ingredient in Midwives' Secret Heavy Menstrual Flow Remedy) and stop worrying about that heavy flow.
