Are There Nutritional Solutions to PMS ?

PMS is not a deficiency of antidepressant medication. It is a sign that you are missing nutrients in your diet, and you are not balancing blood sugar and metabolizing your hormones well. It is the female body crying out for a healthier diet and way' of life. Give your body the healthy diet and lifestyle it needs, and you will not only eliminate PMS .You will achieve a level of health, energy, and overall wellness that you did not think possible.


What often sets the stage for PMS is poor eating. Women who want to lose weight, particularly younger women, often eat nothing or try to exist on salads or other nutrient-poor diets. This, combined with the stress many women and young mothers are under, creates vitamin, mineral, and protein deficiencies that cause a breakdown in health we call PMS.

  • Protein is of prime importance in helping the management of PMS.
  • Protein eaten in moderate amounts throughout the day balances blood sugar. Unstable blood sugar creates and aggravates the mood swings of PMS.
  • Protein is needed in order for the body to produce hormones that keep the female cycle functioning smoothly.
  • Protein is needed for increased tissue production that takes place during the female cycle.
  • The physical, mental, and emotional stress of the female cycle increases the need for protein.

Nutritional Strategies for Eliminating PMS:

  • Eat adequate amounts of protein throughout the day-at least two meals with 3 or more ounces of lean meat, poultry, fish, or lentils.
  • Eliminate coffee, tea, chocolate, and sodas, diet or regular.
  • Remove sugar, white flour, margarines, and fried and processed foods from the diet.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Exercise moderately.
  • Make sure you are getting optimal amounts of all essential vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids.
  • If you have a intestinal overgrowth of yeast (candida albicans), avoid all natural sugars and repopulate your GI tract with beneficial bacteria such as bifidobacterium.
  • Stop smoking and keep alcohol consumption to an absolute minimum.
  • Take a special collection of nutrients known as lipotropic nutrients.
