PMS: Pretty Miserable Syndrome – No More!

Average: 5 (1 vote)

Caused by hormone imbalances, pre-menstrual discomforts are both psychological and physiological problems. Often, the distress and pain associated with PMS is normal and endurable. But for some women, the pain can be a source of agony and stress. Most of the discomfort can be reduced or relieved thanks to a realignment of the body’s hormonal production.

Herbs that Helps with Hormone Realignment
Wild Yam, Safflower, Vitex, Dong Quai, Bupleurum, White peony, and Passion Flower help restore the body’s natural cycle to alleviate
  • Menstrual cramp
  • Emotional fluctuations
  • Restless
  • Fluid retention
  • Heavy menstrual flows
Wild Yam, Chasteberry (Vitex), and Dong Quai function as modulators that balance the production of hormones. These herbs work with the hypothalamus-pituitary-ovary axis to regulate the balance of estrogen and progesterone in the body. Synergized together, these herbs enhance progesterone and decrease estrogen. 

Bupleurum Chinese contains a chemical known as saikosaponins that accounts for much of the medicinal activity of the plant. In Chinese Herbology, Bupleurum, classified under the category of Chi (vital energy), regulates and rejuvenates liver functions; the herb almost always is incorporated into deep liver cleansing programs.

Herbs + Minerals

Studies indicate that some PMS discomforts may be associated with magnesium deficiency. A clinical supply of magnesium may alleviate premenstrual discomfort. Magnesium may even help reduce painful menstrual cramps, water retention, and bloating. Foods rich in B-Complex may also help relieve anxiety. 

Passion Flower
With a storied history of use in North America, Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnate) contains alkaloids that alleviate anxiety, nervousness, and depression without the dependence and withdrawal issues common in anti-anxiety or anti-depressant prescriptions. Passion Flower is also commonly used as a sedative for helping individuals sleep.

Healthier Reproductive Organ Stops Aging
White peony (Paeonia Alba), Dong Quai (Angelica Sinensis), Chasteberry (Vitex), and Safflower (Carthamus tinctorius) are known as blood-toning herbs that are very popular for many female conditions. These herbs promote blood flow to the reproductive organs, relieving menstrual cramps, regulating uterine contractions, limiting excessive menstrual bleeding, and alleviating premenstrual symptoms.

Cramping, bloating, and heavy flow were the typical experiences of my period.  I used birth control pills to ease the symptoms for many years and seem to be okay. I had a happy life with no period and no baby until two facts made me reconsider seriously about their probably adverse effects. My sister-in-law got breast cancer; and my aunt never can conceive a baby, both of them are birth control pill users for their PMS. Are they connected? So, I started to use PMS herbal formula to deal with my PMS symptoms instead of pills. Now, I can sleep well with a clam mind not to worry too much about sexual organ cancer and not to be controlled with “no baby” in the future. But the deal is I have to spend some money on sanitary pads and have to watch the calendar carefully. Worth it? To me, YES.
