Why Do I Get PMS?
PMS can occur in many forms – women may suffer from anxiety, depression, mood swings, food cravings, bloating, breast tenderness, pain or a combination of these symptoms.
Women are often told that this is “normal” and a part of life for women, but when the reproductive system is functioning properly, these symptoms rarely occur.
PMS may be caused by one or a combination of the following:
- Hormonal imbalances
- Poor dietary choices
- Neurotransmitter deficiencies
- Poor elimination
- Environmental toxins
- Emotional upheaval
In a natural medicine setting, PMS is treated according to the individual, the root of the problem being assessed by the practitioner and treated accordingly.
