Are You at the Mercy of Your Menstrual Cycle?
Whether you experience the physical effects of hormone withdrawal prior to your period or the very real and debilitating emotional effects, hormonal imbalances can wreak havoc in your personal and working life.
Recently, there have been calls for women to be granted period leave each month. This has ignited some spirited debate. On the one hand women who experience painful periods and rely on pain killers and anti-inflammatories just to make it through the day, would really appreciate a day off work.
Then there are those who breeze though this monthly event virtually unaffected. And all variations in between.
However, for those women who do experience cramping, heavy bleeding, clotting, headaches/migraines, backaches, leg and pelvic dragging sensations, nausea, dizziness, vomiting, mental fogginess, exhaustion, bloating and all manner of other discomforts….periods can be a dreaded monthly event.
Couple this with increased sensitivity, anger, sadness, irritability and moodiness and you have a recipe for 1-2 weeks of hell each month.
This can take an immense toll on your home and family life and your work.
Is Premenstrual Syndrome PMS or Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder PMDD running your life 1-2 weeks every month?
PMS or the more extreme PMDD which causes severe depression along with physical symptoms of PMS are subjects every female over the age of 12 is well acquainted with.
Over the counter pain relievers and anti-inflammatories can go some way to addressing the physical discomforts but the really troublesome emotional effects often go untreated.
No-one wants to be on an anti-depressant medication for half a month, every month. So what can be done to alleviate these mood swings in a natural and lasting way?
Dietary and lifestyle choices can make a world of difference to the amount of pain and discomfort that women experience. Emotional symptoms can also become far worse when the body is out of balance from a diet that creates nutritional deficiencies.
Simply addressing these nutritional imbalances can do wonders to improve your mood, energy and pain levels.
Likewise, simple lifestyle adjustments can have a profound effect on your overall health and wellbeing all month long.
