Pre menstrual syndrome is cause by hormonal changes in your body, during your menstrual cycle leading up to your period. Headaches, bloating, irritability, breast tenderness, stress, cramping and other symptoms are just some of the symptoms of PMS that a woman can have to deal with. Here are some natural ways to relieve symptoms of PMS.
Moderate exercise, like walking or swimming, can help with some PMS symptoms. Exercise releases chemicals in your body that make you feel better, physically and mentally. Go for a long walk, ride your bike, go to the gym. You don’t have to overdo it, just enough to help you begin to feel better.
Ginkgo biloba is a natural herbal supplement you can take to help ease pre menstrual symptoms. It helps reduce bloating, and eases breast tenderness. Women who take ginkgo biloba for PMS also notice a reduction in inflammation, as well as increased circulation. Mental symptoms are also improved, with lessened stress and irritability. It’s a good idea to consult your doctor before taking any supplements.
Drinking plenty of water can help to reduce bloating and helps with circulation during PMS.
Having a bit of fun can help elevate your mood, and take your mind off PMS symptoms. Work on a favorite hobby, do something with friends or family, whatever it is that is enjoyable to you.
