7 WAYS TO GET RELIEF FROM PMS SYMPTOMS  | NEATBUZZ.COM

When a girl starts her period, chances are pretty good she`ll start experiencing symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, or PMS, too. If you suffer from PMS, you`ll be happy to know there are ways to get relief from the bloating, cramps, cravings, depression, irritability and bad skin that trouble you in those days before your period begins.



1

 

MAKE SURE IT`S PMS

 

If you experience similar symptoms every month in for anywhere from one to 14 days before your period begins, then you are probably experiencing PMS. But there can be other reasons for your symptoms, depending on the symptoms you are experiencing. You could be pregnant or you could be suffering from clinical depression, for example. If your "PMS" includes severe pain in the days before your period begins, you may have endometriosis, a painful condition where the uterine lining grows outside the uterus.

GET ENOUGH SLEEP

 

Irritability can come from lack of sleep even if you aren`t experiencing PMS, and the irritability and depression caused by PMS can certainly be exacerbated by lack of sleep. Make sure to get as at least seven hours of sleep per night for two weeks before your period starts.

AVOID TOO MUCH SODIUM

 

Too much sodium causes bloating and PMS causes bloating. The two combined could make your shoes too tight, make your belly appear pregnant and even make your hands and fingers swell. If you want to wear clothes that don`t have elastic waistbands in the days leading up to your period, cut out the salt.

GET EXERCISE

 

Even a half hour per day of moderate exercise such as brisk walking can help reduce many of your PMS symptoms. Exercise helps reduce stress, relieve depression and irritability. It also can help make your PMS less painful, and can help reduce bloating. For best results, continue this exercise program throughout the entire month.

AVOID SUGAR AND OTHER SIMPLE CARBS

 

Sugar, refined (white) flour and the products made with them. Refined and simple carbohydrates cause wild blood sugar fluctuations, which affect energy levels and mood. They can also cause or increase headaches and decrease your ability to focus, which can already be compromised in those days leading up to your period.

AVOID ALCOHOL

 

Alcohol use can be correlated to mood disorders and depression. At a time when your mood and depression are already in a questionable state, it makes no sense to consume something likely to make them worse. Alcohol can also increase bloating and cause your blood sugar levels to soar and dive, wreaking havoc on your energy levels and mood.

EAT A HEALTHY, BALANCED DIET

 

Eat complex carbohydrates such as whole grains, lots of fresh vegetables, lean protein and healthy fats such as fatty fish, avocado, seeds and nuts. These foods provide you with lots of nutrients, making it less likely that you`ll have food cravings. They also help keep your blood sugar stable, which is helpful for improving your mood, energy levels and concentration.

You will probably not be able to completely eliminate PMS by following these suggestions, but over time you should find your symptoms greatly reduced. If your symptoms are severe and these simple fixes are not helping enough, talk to your doctor. You may find hormone therapy to be the answer.
