When I ask patients if they experience PMS, most of them reply ‘Oh just the usual stuff, I manage’. When I probe a little deeper, many of them are needing to take a day off work, they say that they don’t make decisions for a week every month, that there husbands just stay clear…you get the idea. When it interferes with your everyday life, it’s a problem that needs to be addressed.
PMS may include many or just one of: breast tenderness, moodiness, change in libido, irritability, weepiness, bloating, swelling of hands and feet, fatigue, and brain fog.
The good news is that just because it’s common to experience PMS, doesn’t mean that it’s normal and that you just have to ‘deal with it’.
Naturopathic Medicine has a lot to offer including: balancing hormones, correcting vitamin deficiencies, and correcting gut issues.
If you’ve suffered enough, call and book an appointment.
Yours in health,
