Imagine Laserworks helps with Premenstrual Syndrome
Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a collection of physical, psychological and emotional symptoms that occur in many women from 2-14 days before the onset of menstruation. Studies show that an estimated three of every four menstruating women experience some form of PMS.
Physical Symptoms of PMS:
Generalized Aches and Pains
Intense Food Cravings
Emotional Symptoms of PMS:
The exact cause of PMS is unknown, but studies have found that many factors may contribute to the condition such as cyclic hormonal changes, chemical changes in the brain, stress, and poor eating habits.
There are various theories as to the cause of PMS. These include:
Hormones – PMS symptoms can be triggered by menstrual hormones such as estrogen and progesterone
Metabolism – Some PMS symptoms may be caused by the inability to properly metabolize fatty acids
Calcium – Some researchers believe the cause of PMS may be linked to a calcium deficiency
Environment – Factors such as the increased use of chemicals, fertilizers and pesticides may be linked to an increase in rates of PMS
Combination – PMS symptoms are possibly brought on by a combination of diet, stress, and mineral and vitamin deficiencies
