pms1For most women, the menstrual period is the most frightening times in a month. Various disorders such as mood up and down, cramping and bloating in the abdomen, pain in the breast, to make the body feel full confident women often lost.

Studies show 85 percent of women experience symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). “How to cope with the symptoms of PMS is making changes in lifestyle,” said gynecologist Christiane Northrup, MD, author of “Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom.”

There are four simple strategies that help you cope with PMS:

Maximize your intake of magnesium

Researchers at the University of Reading in the UK found magnesiam supplements reduce water retention that causes bloating. “I recommend 400-800 milligrams of magnesium per day,” says Dr. Northrup.

A lot of Moving and exercising

Although exercise is the last thing you want to do, make the heart pump makes you feel better.

American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends regular aerobic to relieve PMS. Exercise can help relieve cramping due to the production of endorphins, natural painkillers of the body.

Whole grain intake

Chocolate, ice cream, biscuits is often desirable eating just before menstruation. However, these foods make you feel worse because it increases blood sugar levels rapidly and drastically decreased. “We recommend that the intake of low-glycemic foods to avoid STDs disorders,” says Dr. Northrup.

Avoid white foods such as potatoes, white bread, and sugar and replace with the intake of complex carbohydrates such as whole grain breads and cereals, fruits, vegetables, and nuts. These foods will stabilize blood sugar and keep your appetite.

alternative medicine

According to a recent survey from the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, nearly 40 percent of adults use some type of alternative medicine.

Dr. Northrup recommends two alternative medicine, namely acupuncture and reflection. In one study published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology, women who massaged reflection at a certain point in the ears, hands, or feet, decreased PMS symptoms by 46 percent. Acupuncture treatment also decreases PMS symptoms by 78 percent.
