Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is an uncomfortable reality for nine out of ten women. Research suggests the physical and psychological symptoms of PMS result from hormonal imbalances. These symptoms include bloating, depression, fatigue, tender breasts, constipation, appetite changes, back or joint pain, and weight gain. Although our society widely accepts PMS as an unavoidable affliction, scientific research is steadily uncovering connections between diet and reproductive health. While conventional treatments include over-the-counter medications that can include a host of adverse side effects, safe and effective PMS relief could be as close as your refrigerator or cupboard.
