It's one of those things that people have to deal with — but you're in luck: it might be possible to get your PMS symptoms under control with good nutrition!
Here's what Margaux J had to say:
It’s the time that a woman just doesn’t feel like herself. Some women only experience abdominal cramps and a cranky mood. Others feel horrifically bloated, overly tired, and irritable to the point where they want to go into hibernation for a week! If you experience PMS symptoms, start with a well-balanced diet that includes plenty of organic fruits, organic vegetables, and whole grains. Try eating kale, collard greens, Brussels sprouts, and Swiss chard. You can also enjoy quinoa, amaranth, and lentils. Foods high in sugar (like donuts, cookies, soda, and candy) may exaggerate mood swings and if possible, try to eliminate caffeine, which will only worsen anxiety, tension, or irritability. Also abstain from drinking alcohol which can worsen your mood, especially if you feel depressed. Eat foods full of vitamin B6 like spinach, garlic, bananas, celery, asparagus, and cabbage.
There you go, ladies! Some tips!
Thanks for everything you do, Marg! You're awesome!
