Tips to Beat PMS Cravings

According to statistics 80 percent of menstruating women experience so called “premenstrual syndrome” or simply PMS, and 65 percent of them experience food cravings as one of its symptoms. PMS food cravings are a desire to consume different, sometimes unusual for a woman, types of food, which can reduce to zero all attempts to lead a healthy way of life and to maintain healthy food habits. The foods women usually crave are directly connected with their hormones instability. Most often women crave sweet food containing fat or, on the contrary, salty food, or some other kinds of junk food.

The maim idea, why every month before the period millions of women feel crazy cravings for some types of food, is women’s hormones. Levels of estrogen and stress hormone cortisol fluctuate but organism ‘wants’ them to stay even, which makes woman to crave fat and carbohydrates. One more thing is that our body really needs serotonin – a hormone of pleasure and contentment and this necessity becomes much stronger during premenstrual period. And certainly food, especially sweet one, is one of the things that can give women feeling of contentment and joy of life, which will raise the quantity of serotonin in the body.

Actually there are many theories about PMS food cravings reasons, but there also many ways to fight them. First of all, you should know that female metabolism increases during women premenstrual period and a woman’s organism can burn 100 additional calories a day – so maybe your cravings aren’t so critical and you shouldn’t worry at all.

If you still see a problem the next tips are for you:

If your body needs serotonin, remember that exercise also increase serotonin. Even if you feel not very well try at least to walk a bit and you’ll see the results. Lack of sunshine and fresh air also reduces serotonin levels – go outside, enjoy what is around you – and you‘ll certainly feel much better.

The more stress you have the worse cravings you experience. So try not to stress out a lot. If you can’t, so try some relaxation techniques such as yoga and meditation. Feeling calm and relaxed will help you to avoid snack attacks.

You organism may need additional magnesium during PMS, so when you have beans, sunflower seeds, peanut butter or almond cravings you just get the magnesium you need. Chocolate is also rich in magnesium, so if you want some chocolate feel free to take a piece, but don’t forget that together with magnesium chocolate also contains lots of fat, so if you really need it, eat dark chocolate which is less fatty than milk one.

During the period of PMS your body may also need protein and complex carbs. Complex carbs are fiber rich foods for example whole grain breads and cereals, fruit and starchy veggies. To get necessary proteins eat eggs, fish, chicken and turkey. Protein will help you not to feel hunger by controlling blood sugar imbalances.

Mostly cravings occur when you are hungry, so not to want to eat you should eat more often but less. Plan your meals during the day to eat a mini meal each 3 hours and this will help you to control hunger and as a result your food cravings.

Help for Menstrual Migraines

Menstrual migraine

Menstrual migraine

Women suffer from migraines much more often than men, and 80 percent of them suffer from them every month during their premenstrual period, before it, or, sometimes, immediately after it, experiencing it as one of the symptoms of PMS. The reasons of headaches aren’t still completely clear, but hormones are considered to be the main reason that causes monthly migraines. Estrogen hormone controls elements in our brains that influence a women’s sensitivity to a pain, and when levels of estrogen unexpectedly change during the period, it usually provokes migraines. Those women, who take oral contraceptives, can experience stronger headaches because birth control pills influence estrogen levels.

Sometimes menstrual migraines are accompanied with nausea and sensitivity to bright light and loud sounds. During the PMS itself headaches can often occur together with other PMS symptoms, such as acne, muscle pain, fatigue, depressions, increase in appetite and cravings for various kinds of junk food, lack of attention and coordination.

So as menstrual migraines are rather predictable and expectable, one of the possibilities to cope with them is to try a preventive treatment. You may need it if your headache attacks are really severe. First of all you should consult with your doctor who will be able to give you some professional advice. Medication, which is usually used in such situations, usually includes naproxen sodium or another NSAID, a triptan (such as, for example, fravotriptan, naratriptan, sumatriptan or methylergonovine), DHE and magnesium. It will be much more helpful if you consult with your doctor concerning all these medication and precisely follow all the instructions he will give. NSAID treatment will be much more effective as preventive medication if to use it 24-48 hours before the time you expect migraines. The dose of medication also can be raised before the menstruation itself.

If you suffer from extra severe pains and ordinary methods of treatment are unsuccessful, you can try hormonal therapy. You can try medication that contains estrogen (estradiol is the most popular treatment in the situation of this kind).

When you go to a doctor with your migraines problem, he will certainly ask you to tell him some details; without this information he won’t be able to provide you with any helpful treatment. So to be able to answer the doctor’s questions you can create your headache diary, where you can write down you symptoms and frequency of your pains; and make your cycle calendar. You should always know what medication you are currently taking, because lots of drugs cannot be taken together at the same time.

You can also follow some simple natural tips, which can seriously relieve your migraine pains during the PMS and menstruation. First of all add more food containing magnesium to your diet and try to avoid alcohol and caffeine. Try some relaxation techniques and don’t forget that your body in general needs rest.

So we all are different and if one treatment cannot help, don’t give up, consult with your doctor – and you’ll certainly find something, which will help you to fight you migraines.

Ancient treatment for today’s relief of PMS symptoms

Most women today rush to take medicines when they feel the first sights of PMS symptoms. Certainly such methods help to relieve your suffering but it is not the best way – it doesn’t always work for everyone and it is usually quite expensive way of fighting PMS.
Natural relief of PMS symptoms

Natural relief of PMS symptoms

How do we usually cope with PMS symptoms?

Apart from medications there are lots of other methods to deal with PMS. There are special herbs that may help and some foods which will aid to avoid headaches, PMS cravings, depressions and so forth. Natural way of life and physical exercise can become your first aid while feeling not very well because of PMS. How do you think our ancestors eased this state? They didn’t have any medications and I don’t think women in ancient times were so lucky not to suffer from PMS symptoms!
Today we use some methods that our grandmothers used – and these methods are sometimes much more effective than expensive chemicals we can buy in a drugstore. At least they absolutely can’t do any harm to you.
Among such methods yoga, meditation, tai chi and acupuncture are the most popular ones. All of them are part of very ancient Chinese medicine. In this medicine everything is considered to be regulated by what they call “chi” in China.  PMS is what a woman feel when something limits freedom of “chi” in her body. If to simplify this “chi” is our own energy – and such things as meditation, acupuncture and other relaxation techniques help to keep our body and mind in harmony and this can seriously change your state for the better.
Acupuncture is a kind of alternative medicine that treats patients by affection acupuncture.In acupuncture a specialist stimulates special points on your body, manipulating thin, solid needles which have been inserted into the skin. This must help “chi” to become free again and your body to get rid of pain and other PMS symptoms.
Meditation and yoga have always been the best ways to fight PMS. Main PMS problems are depressions, headaches and mood swinging and these relaxations techniques help you to stay calm and prevent you from tension of everyday life. They improve your mood and relieve stress, and moreover yoga includes not only mind but also physical exercise, which, as was already told, is the best way to get rid of menstruation cramps.
Tai chi is a “moving meditation” which, as well as yoga, helps you to avoid pain not only because of giving you certain kind of relaxation and calm but also because of making you move and do aerobic exercise.
There are also some ancient remedies which aren’t connected with Chinese medicine but they were successfully used by our ancestors and can be successfully used now.
Eat honey. It is an old remedy for muscle cramps. Eat two spoons of honey with your meal every day and in two – three weeks you’ll feel a relief. But it doesn’t work if you eat honey only while feeling PMS symptoms. It should be done on a regular basis and in this case the method will be a success.
Our grandmothers also used ice to overcome tension and anxiety. If you feel angry or depressed, iced water can do you a big favor and deliver you from these symptoms. Or you can ice for making a cold compress on aching muscles or PMS migraines.
Not only cold but also warm can help you to relieve pain. A warm compress is also a relaxing and comforting thing which will calm you down and give you feeling of slackness.
Our grandmothers had the same or even more problems than we have today. And they were stronger then we are now. So maybe we must consider their experience, which will certainly help us to fight all problems without making serious mistakes and undergoing lots of difficulties.

Premenstrual syndrome: Fact or Fiction?

PMS facts

PMS facts

According to statistics premenstrual syndrome, which is better known simply as PMS, is experienced by 85 percent of women worldwide. And certainly these women can tell you not only about the fact that they feel it but also how they feel it.

But some people, especially men, are skeptic about PMS – they think that women invented it to explain their moodiness and unwillingness to do routine functions. So does premenstrual syndrome really exist or is it just a fiction?

We will try to consider this question from different points of view. In the nineteenth century all those women who behave in a strange for a woman of nineteenth century way, for example they weren’t submissive and were trying to compete with men, were considered to suffer from hysteria. Their unusual behavior was accepted only if they were sick, so they were treated from hysteria. Today’s society tries to explain women’s behavior deviation through PMS and also tries to treat it. New researches show that PMS for many women is a kind of self-persuasion. They know that they should feel bad and they feel bad. According to these researches women may experience such things as irritation, moodiness or migraines during the whole month, but they would say that it is because of weather, fatigue or other circumstances, but when their premenstrual period comes, they begin to assert that it is because of PMS. So this means that PMS is only in women’s minds and this is much more psychological thing than a physical one. But from the other point of view PMS could really exist because during the premenstrual period levels of certain hormones rise and it certainly causes changes in women’s physical and emotional states. Hormonal imbalance during a premenstrual period in a woman’s body can really become the reason for her irritability, anger, sadness… Those women who experience PMS also face such problems as cramps, bloating, headaches and many other really unpleasant things. So most doctors today say that PMS really exists but true PMS is a much rarer thing than women used to think.

As opposed to those people who don’t believe in PMS at all, there are some people who think that during their premenstrual period women are mentally unstable. This is myth actually – all those women who suffer from PMS can think and behave sensibly, such differences in women’s hormonal levels cannot make them go mad.

If you are one of those women who believe in PMS and moreover suffer from it, the thought about treating PMS must bother you more than the fact of existing of it. Here the idea that premenstrual symptoms can be relieved only with the help of medication is certainly a fiction. Even a little change in your way of life to a healthier one may help you to suffer much less. Including lots of water and certain types of food to your diet and excluding salt and sugar from it (at least during your period and some days before and after it) will be a great relieve for you. Also if you think that when you are suffering from cramps the only way for you is to lie motionless you are seriously mistaken. The better way to fight pain in such situation is to move. That’s understandable that it is last thing you want to do in such situation, but it is really helpful. Try to do some exercise and you’ll see that you are not dying from pain any more. Exercise makes people’s bodies produce endorphin which is considered to be the best natural painkiller.

It’s up to you to decide whether PMS is fact or fiction. All in all if you feel depression or anxiety try some relaxation techniques, try to lead a healthy life at least for some time – and you’ll feel better regardless of the name you give to your state.

Natural Ways to Manage PMS

Aromatherapy for pms

Aromatherapy for pms

According to statistics 85 percent of women deal with PMS symptoms. Mood swings, irritability, insomnia, nervousness, fatigue – women have to fight with all these every month. The intensity of these symptoms for different women can be different, but all of them certainly want to get rid of this.

There are different ways to cope with PMS symptoms: you can take medications, try different herbs which help to relive your state and eat certain kinds of food, but the first and the main way to fight with PMS symptoms is natural way. Women who want to improve the situation should lead healthy lifestyle and keep to some simple rules. Here are some of them:

1. Eat products which contain calcium every day. A daily dose of calcium for an adult person is 1200 mg. According to statistics it can help to diminish PMS symptoms up to 50 percent.

2. Lead active life. Some women give up doing exercise or try to do nothing at all during their period and before it. They think that they feel badly and shouldn’t do anything because of this fact. That’s totally incorrect – exercise is the best way to reduce stress which is women’s main enemy during the period and before it. Exercise is the main source of endorphins which are considered to be the best mood regulators and natural pain killers. So active way of life will help you to deal with anxiety and irritability – the most widespread symptoms of PMS. Moreover regular exercise improves circulation of the blood in the body which helps to alleviate cramps during the period.

3. Pay attention to what you eat. Healthy way of life should include healthy diet. Include more fruit, vegetables, whole grains and food containing calcium, magnesium, certain vitamins and minerals into your diet, exclude food containing sugar and salt – and you’ll see that your period is getting more and more trouble-free. Reduce the amount of beverages containing caffeine or, what is better, give up drinking them at all during your cycle – and you’ll immediately notice leaving of moodiness, irritation and insomnia.

4. Relax. We need rest and relaxation even when we don’t feel any PMS symptoms. And when you feel not very well during the period you should pay special attention to your need of relaxation. There are special stress managing techniques that may help to relieve PMS symptoms. Concern yourself with yoga, try special breathing techniques and meditation. Massage will help you to relax aching muscles which will ease monthly cramps.

5. Forget about cravings. Many women experience desire for unhealthy snacks during their periods. These snacks usually contain a great amount of salt and sugar which won’t make you any good. Consuming more whole grain food will help you to overcome this unhealthy desire.

6. Have enough sleep. It goes without saying that a person who experiences lack of sleep can’t feel well. During the period a woman’s body feels much more tired so it needs much more rest. Sleep no less than 8 hours a night, keep to the rules above and you’ll feel calm and energetic during the whole day.

Foods that can help you to fight PMS

Each month thousands of women suffer from PMS symptoms. It is possible to try to treat it with the help of some chemical remedies or to use some natural medicine recipes and formulas. Most specialists advise those women, who experience pms symptoms, keep to a diet and organize their eating habits in a more healthy way.

These advices will certainly help to deal with moodiness, migraines and irritation but it can be not enough to fight a pms problem. Actually, why do pms symptoms appear? Scientists say that PMS is mostly caused by lack of necessary vitamins and minerals in the body.

So it is a great idea to reduce eating salty and sugary food and drinking less beverages with caffeine, but it isn’t enough because it won’t give you useful substances your organism need. Here you’ll read about the food which will help you to fight PMS if you include it in your diet.

Eat fish, especially sardines, salmon, tuna, herring. These fishes are highly rich in omega 3-s, the fatty acids that help to reduce menstrual cramping. Your body also needs calcium and sardines can provide you with it much better than even milk. The problem with calcium is not only in ordinary lack of it – you should also remember that the organism cannot absorb calcium without the help of vitamin D –and these fishes contain really a great amount of this vitamin. According to statistics eating food which contains lots of vitamin D can reduce risk of PMS up to 40 percent.

As it was already mentioned, enough amount of vitamin D in the organism will help your body to cope with calcium that is extremely important itself. Fish is not the only food containing calcium – to get it in a sufficient amount you need to eat dairy products. Calcium affects the balance of estrogen in the body and helps to avoid depression and anxiety during your period. Drink a lot of milk or yogurt, eat cheese and you’ll notice a positive effect right away. If you don’t like dairy products, such things as broccoli or kale can replace them.

Together with calcium and vitamin D our body also needs vitamin B6 and magnesium. B6 is very well-known thing to reduce different PMS symptoms. It is needed to regulate the body’s estrogen level which is very important because too much estrogen causes mood swings and inability to focus. You can get vitamin B6 simply by eating bananas, garbanzo beans, spinach, potatoes (with skin on), chicken and turkey.

Women who experience PMS symptoms usually have a low level of magnesium. Magnesium helps to struggle with water retention and bloating and helps to regulate our brain mood regulator – serotonin. Add more beans to your diet, try pumpkin and sunflower seeds and peanuts and you see how magnesium can improve health especially during your period.

Certainly during the PMS period your body feels not very well and you often want lots of salty or very sweet food just to entertain yourself. You don’t want to deal with this useful uninteresting food. But after you try it you’ll understand that your body doesn’t ask for junk food any more and you feel much better in general.


Some nutritional habits to live better with PMS

PMS food

PMS and your diet

Our health and internal state much depends on what we eat and how we eat. And it goes without saying that healthy eating habits are a need for everyone who wants his body to be in good condition. You may say that special nutritional habits are necessary only for those who want to lose weight or to keep fit, but it is not true at all. If you give some thought to this question you’ll see that healthy food and food habits create a healthy body and help not only to avoid lots of problems with weight, but also to improve your state if you feel badly. If healthy nutritional habit becomes your daily eating habit, it can help to relieve pms symptoms a lot

Some of you would probably say that they have no time to control their food, others would say that it is boring and uninteresting – but after you make the first step on this way you’ll find it even enjoyable, and moreover you’ll immediately notice positive influence of your new way of life on your organism.

Here are a few very simple advices which will help you to make you life much more pleasant and easy especially during your pms period.

First and the main thing you should get used to is drinking a lot of water during the day. Scientists say that a person should drink 30 milliliters of water per 1 kilo of his weight a day.  Water is everywhere in our organisms – all our organs, our skin, even our brains contain water – and without it our body begins to dry out and wither. Moreover water helps to free the organism from toxins and other harmful substances. It is also better for our health to prefer water to other beverages you drink during the day – for instance tea or coffee contains lots of caffeine which makes us too active and sometimes too irritable. Skipping caffeine and replacing it with water may help you to avoid pre-period moodiness and insomnia. Water makes you to feel fuller, so you’ll even see that you need less food not to be hungry. Keep water always at your fingertips and drink it every time you are thirsty – and you’ll see that it can make wonders with your organism.

Second advice for you is to eat smaller portions and eat regular meals. When you skip meal you gain nothing except out-of-control hunger and in result – overeating. If you are too hungry you don’t pay special attention to what you are going to eat – and you often buy extremely unhealthy junk food to satisfy your hunger. It is much better to have small snacks between your meals and eat more often – 5 or 6 times a day – but to eat reasonable portions. And don’t skip your breakfast! If you don’t eat breakfast you stay without food more than 10 hours by the time of your lunch, and for the rest of the day your body accumulates energy from food you eat in the form of fat instead of giving you a possibility to burn it.

Certainly we eat not only for nutrition but also for pleasure. And to make our food tastier we add to it different seasonings, salt or sugar… Not to feel flabbiness you should reduce amount of salt in your meals (at least during a few days before your period). Salt causes water retention in the organism and avoiding it will give you feeling of lightness. Sugar also doesn’t give lots of benefits to our organisms – so your body will thank you for replacing sweet food with fruits.

We always have lack of time so we usually eat very fast. If you acquire the habit of eating slowly you won’t overeat and as a result feel heavy and tired. Don’t hurry, enjoy your meal and you’ll see that you are full with much less amount of food. You’ll feel that you’re toned up and relaxed which is very important when you are experiencing pms symptoms.

If you are feeling that you should change something in your life, start with you eating habits – because, as a famous proverb says, we are what we eat. Maybe it looks difficult to make the first step, but after you make it, you’ll never regret.

Our health and internal state much depends on what we eat and how we eat. And it goes without saying that healthy eating habits are a need for every
