Premenstrual syndrome makes us all feel bloated, tired, and irritable to a certain extent. But imagine a PMS ten times stronger! Every woman’s nightmare.
Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) affects approximately 8% of women, usually from early twenties to early thirties. Just like with PMS, the symptoms occur in the second part of the menstrual cycle, after ovulation, and disappear during the first days of menstruation. The PMDD symptoms are physical, mental and – extreme.
PMDD can affect your psyche by making you feel exceedingly:
- sad and hopeless
- depressed and desperate
- anxious and tense
- oversensitive and overemotional
- irritable, angry, ready to jump down someone’s throat for no reason
- edgy, panicky, upset
- antisocial, in need of solitude
- in worst cases even suicidal
PMDD affects your body by making you feel:
- complete lack of energy
- fatigue, exhaustion
- unable to concentrate, forgetful
- insomnia or broken sleep
- extreme desire to overeat
- chest pain
- bloated, indigestion
- muscle cramps and joint pain
- weight gain.
Women who suffer from PMDD have a genuine problem to go about their daily routine, which affects their families, jobs and social life. Modern medicine approaches the problem with synthetic drugs: antidepressants, anxiolytics, hormones… Being in early twenties and having to take so many medications can easily make us believe that our life is an absolute mess and that there’s something seriously wrong with us.
The cause of PMDD is not completely clear, however the most probable scenario is a reaction to hormonal changes in the body. So far, clinical research has confirmed that women suffering from this syndrome have lower serotonin levels. The reason more to be more physically active and control the diet by ditching sugar, fast and fatty food, alcohol, caffeine and smoking. More grain, fresh fruit and vegetables will provide enough magnesium, zinc and vitamin B6 to soothe the nerves, muscle cramps and joint pain.
However, just like with PMS, medicinal herbs are an ideal and natural way to alleviate and even eliminate PMDD symptoms. Lady’s mantle, yarrow, marigold, crane’s bill, golden maca, shepherd’s purse… an ideal herbal blend accompanied with zinc, all contained in one capsule of Femisan A.
