PMS - Which type are you?

I guess there are a lot of ways to categorise things, and many different approaches to handling issues so this post is certainly not a definitive on PMS, just the Biosignature approach. Below I have listed a few different types of PMS and some protocols that may help you through.

PMS D - Depression
Use Evening Primrose oil, borage oil or Fish oil with high DHA all month.

PMS A - Anger
Perform a liver detox last 5 days of every month, using liver herbs

PMS H - Water gain
Use Vitamin E, taurine and magnesium

PMS O - All symptoms
This can be addressed by looking at diet as well as the supps listed above.

I have also recently found that Wild Yam is very effective in managing the physical symptoms of swelling and water gain.

Hi Lisa

I have a confession to make...I've never suffered from PMS!

I will say this and will probably get some strong reactions, but I think that 'some' (not all) women use PMS as an excuse to vent.

Though I have suffered from physical symptons like bloating.

Ciao for now...Kerry :)

I didn't start to get PMS until I was in my 30's. I'm an introvert to begin with, but when I'm PMSing, I retreat even farther into myself. I don't even realize it, but my husband does. It irritates me that he can always guess that I'm PMSing by how quiet I am, LOL.

I'm thinking that makes me a PMS D. I don't go around smiling, singing, and just exuding happiness like I normally do; and sappy commercials and movies make me cry! It would be interesting to give Evening Primrose Oil a try. (Already take a high DHA fish oil.)
