Opis ebooka Curing Premenstrual Tension Naturally - Tiziana M.

For many millions of women all over the world, misery and irritability are a monthly fact of life, something that they have to live with month after month after month.However, what most of these women perhaps don’t know is that whilst premenstrual tension (PMT) or premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is suffered by as many as three out of every four ladies, it is not necessary to suffer anywhere near as much as they do.Although the number who suffer premenstrual problems as a chronic condition every month is mercifully small at somewhere around 2-5% of all sufferers, it is nevertheless a fact that for many women, PMT or PMS is a blight on their live every month that they could well do without.In truth, there are plenty of entirely natural things that women can do to limit the worst symptoms associated with PMT or even get rid of them altogether and of course, because we are talking of completely natural solutions here, there is very little possibility of adverse side-effects either.

Introduction

For many millions of women all over the world, misery and irritability are a monthly fact of life, something that they have to live with month after month after month.

However, what most of these women perhaps don’t know is that whilst premenstrual tension (PMT) or premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is suffered by as many as three out of every four ladies, it is not necessary to suffer anywhere near as much as they do.

Although the number who suffer premenstrual problems as a chronic condition every month is mercifully small at somewhere around 2-5% of all sufferers, it is nevertheless a fact that for many women, PMT or PMS is a blight on their live every month that they could well do without.

In truth, there are plenty of entirely natural things that women can do to limit the worst symptoms associated with PMT or even get rid of them altogether and of course, because we are talking of completely natural solutions here, there is very little possibility of adverse side-effects either.

Before moving on to begin looking at how you can deal with PMT entirely naturally, let's start by considering the condition itself and why perhaps as many as 75% of women suffer from it each and every month. 5

What is premenstrual tension?

According to the definition of premenstrual syndrome featured on Wikipedia, there is a difference between PMS and PMT. However, according to most medical sites that mention both PMT and PMS, they tend to do so interchangeably.

In essence, they are one and the same thing as far as most authoritative online resources are concerned so I am going to assume that they are the same for the purposes of this book as well.

Indeed, many resources suggest that PMS is a far more accurate description of the condition suffered by so many women every month mainly because describing it as premenstrual tension suggests that there is only one symptom suffered by these ladies.

In truth, there are many different symptoms suffered by those who are troubled by the condition, so using the phrase premenstrual syndrome is probably more accurate as it suggests that there are many different signs or ill-effects of the condition, which is absolutely true.

Although estimates of how many women actually suffer PMS vary, it is a fact that most women will suffer the condition on at least some occasions. However, for the vast majority of PMS sufferers, it is a condition which although it is generally very mild nevertheless besets them every month. Premenstrual syndrome is something that is completely regular feature of their life which (it seems) they cannot avoid.

For most women who suffer PMS, the condition usually sets in between seven and fourteen days before the beginning of their period, although for some women who suffer severe PMS, the condition can become one that is almost permanent, with symptoms being present before, during and after menstruation. This happens because many symptoms have a knock-on effect that causes other problems to arise at a later date, hence you have what is effectively non-stop PMS.

Although as suggested there is no globally agreed definition of exactly what constitutes premenstrual syndrome, there are two definitions that are commonly used by researchers when studying the condition. These are:

• The definition proposed by the researchers at the University 6

of California which suggests that there should be both physical and psychological symptoms of PMS shown during the five days before menses for three consecutive menstrual cycles. Furthermore, these same symptoms must not be present during the other parts of the cycle, especially the pre-ovulatory phase.

• The second definition is that formulated by the National Institute of Mental Health in the USA which is focused on the severity of symptoms in cycle days from 5 to 10 compared with the severity in the six-day period before the onset of menses. According to this definition, symptoms have to be seen for two consecutive mental cycles to establish PMS.

Whichever definition you use, for the majority who suffer PMS, the most common symptoms are mood swings and irritability, breast tenderness, headaches and nausea but for the majority who are relatively lucky, the symptoms tend to be very mild, in some cases so mild that they are almost unnoticeable.

On the other hand, a small percentage of women are not nearly so fortunate with their symptoms being a great deal more severe and therefore considerably more disruptive too. And even though the symptoms highlighted above are the most common, there are many other symptoms of both a physical and psychological nature that many women suffer.

Physical symptoms of PMS can include some or all of the following:

• Abdominal pain and/or bloating;

• Joint and/or muscle pain;

• Headaches;

• Chronic diarrhea or constipation;

• Worsening of pre-existing medical problems such as skin conditions;

• Onset or worsening of acne;

• Hot flushes;

• Breast tenderness;

• Food and/or alcohol cravings; 7

• Excess water retention;

• Weight gain;

• General weakness.

Whilst for women who suffer severe PMS every month, these physical symptoms can be extremely unpleasant and debilitating, most women find that it is the psychological effects of PMS that are most damaging.

Indeed, this is the primary reason why the alternative term premenstrual tension is used to describe the condition.

Included amongst the psychological symptoms associated with PMS are the following:

• Mood swings which are often very violent and sudden;

• Irritability ranges from mild to extreme in severity;

• Stress, anxiety or depression, often leading to insomnia;

• Decreased libido;

• Weepiness;

• Poor concentration and a lack of focus.

While most who suffer PMS find that the physical symptoms of the condition are relatively mild, the psychological side of suffering is not always quite so easy. For example, some women will change to such an extent that they become almost like a completely different person, sometimes even going so far as to resort to violence against loved ones.
