Since the cause of PMS is often unknown, it can be hard to treat the symptoms accurately and effectively. However, here are some great natural tips and lifestyle changes that you can holistically implement to relieve your PMS symptoms and allow you to lead a happier, healthier life.
Studies have consistently proven that taking calcium supplements can have benefits that relieve PMS symptoms. Having four servings of dairy a day can give you a boost in calcium and reduce your symptoms. Some foods high in calcium include dairy products, sesame seeds, and almonds. High levels of Vitamin D could also help your body absorb calcium faster and reduce menstrual symptoms such as breast tenderness and fatigue.
Limiting sugar and sodium is often recommended to reduce PMS symptoms because it could help reduce bloating and breast pain. Lowering caffeine intake could also improve your sleep and decrease irritability in the long run.
Getting a health amount of exercise each day will release endorphins, thus improving your mood as well as your physical health. Exercising can also release dopamine and serotonin, which are “feel-good” hormones that make you feel lighter and relieve stress.
On the topic of stress, managing stress through yoga, mediation, and self-care can greatly improve your mood and lower anxiety. Trying aromatherapy and acupuncture could also be great ways to reduce stress and irritability.
