Natural Remedies For Premenstrual Tension

Updated on July 11, 2009

If you suffer from PMT every month before your period, your life can feel like a complete misery. You may suffer from a combination of symptoms including headaches, restlessness, irritability, mood swings and bloating.

These are just a few things that you may have to contend with. Knowing that this is how life will be every month for the next 40 years can be a nightmare. There are many things that you can try that could help alleviate the pain a little or, if you are lucky, completely.

Here are a few natural methods that you could look at that may help that time of the month to be less painful and less distressing.

Revise Your Diet To Ease PMT

Think about what your regular diet consists of. You should aim to cut down on sugary foods as well as your salt intake. To enable the body to function efficiently you need to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables. These foods will help to ensure that your body is getting the natural nutrients that it needs. A reduction in salt will decrease the feeling of bloating as salt makes the abdomen feel swollen and uncomfortable.

Drink More Water

The body needs water to help flush out toxins from the body so before and during your period you should try to drink a little bit more.  This will help ease tension and reduce swelling.

Incorporate A Daily Exercise Routine Into Your Life

If you do a little bit of exercise everyday you will help the body’s circulation system to work at its optimum level.  If you get moving on a regular basis, the body will produce a natural chemical called endorphins, which blocks the feeling of pain and will give you some level of relief.

Add Vitamins And Minerals To Your Diet

If you are not getting enough vitamins and minerals from your diet, you may want to think about taking some supplements to help increase your energy levels, improve your joints and help level out your emotional triggers.

If you prefer, you can find herbal remedies that will help to ease the discomfort of PMS and period pains.  You could try drinking green tea, which is known for its health benefits or take supplements containing green tea, rosemary and burdock.
