Being a woman is a complicated cycle of hormones from day to day and sometimes, well, let’s be honest ladies, we are just a little witchy, aren’t we? Well, if guys had to put up with the things we do, like painful breasts, pounding headaches, cramps, bloating, mood swings, and food cravings, they would probably be the same way.

Doctors really don’t have many ideas for PMS, and even worse, some of them will tell you it’s all in your head, don’t you hate that?! Listen, if you are looking for some real relief from at least some of the symptoms of PMS, keep reading. We’ve got 10 all natural remedies that should bring you a bit of relief and have you feeling like yourself again sooner than you can say “Shoe Sale!”


1. Multivitamins

You might not believe it, but many PMS symptoms are only heightened by a lack of certain vitamins. Balancing your nutrition is the first step towards getting some relief from some of your symptoms. Believe it or not, studies show that women who take a high quality multivitamin have fewer PMS symptoms than those who don’t. So buy some high quality multivitamins for starters.


2. Iron

More nutrition information! Ladies, due to blood loss, it’s easy to become anemic, which will leave you feeling tired and wiped out. Be sure to eat foods that are high in iron all month long to keep those iron levels up. There are iron supplements but you need to be careful as they can lead to constipation and even toxicity if you take too many. If you are simply exhausted around that time of the month, ask your doctor to test you for anemia.


3. Eat more flax

Ground flaxseed is full of lignans, which helps to bind up free estrogen in the body. It’s also high in fiber, which will help keep things moving in your lower intestines (yes, we are talking about poop) and this will help move excess hormones out of the body. Flax seeds have phytoestrogens that minimize PMS symptoms because they bind to estrogen receptors, which block out stronger estrogens, which can antagonize PMS.
