PMS stands for "Premenstrual Syndrome," and it refers to a set of physical, emotional, and behavioral symptoms that some women experience in the days or weeks leading up to their menstrual period.
PMS is a common condition, and its severity and specific symptoms can vary widely from one woman to another. It typically occurs during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle, which is the time between ovulation and the start of menstruation. Common symptoms of PMS include:
Mood Swings: Many women with PMS experience mood changes, such as irritability, mood swings, anxiety, and depression.
Physical Symptoms: PMS can cause various physical discomforts, including bloating, breast tenderness, headaches, fatigue, and muscle aches.
Gastrointestinal Symptoms: Some women may have gastrointestinal symptoms like constipation or diarrhea.
Food Cravings: Cravings for certain types of food, particularly sweets or salty snacks, are common during PMS.
Sleep Disturbances: Sleep disturbances, such as insomnia or disrupted sleep patterns, can occur.
Cognitive Changes: Some women may notice changes in their cognitive function, such as difficulty concentrating or memory problems.
Behavioral Changes: PMS can lead to changes in behavior, such as increased sensitivity, social withdrawal, or reduced interest in usual activities.
In most cases PMS symptoms go away within a few days after period starts as hormone levels begin rising again.Some women get their periods without any signs of PMS or only very mild symptoms. For others, PMS symptoms may be so severe that it makes it hard to do everyday activities like go to work or school.
Women experiencing severe PMS or PMDD should seek medical evaluation and guidance to determine the most appropriate treatment approach for their individual needs. For more details on PMS click here
There is a group of herbs that have been used traditionally to support the PMS . Some of these herbs are used in preparation of our PMS Support tonic blend. This tonic is prepared as a tea for the ease of digestion specifically for those who have sensitive tummies or unable to take tablets, powders, capsules or tinctures.
PMS Support can be used hot or cold. To get the most medicinal benefits from this tonic we recommend using it as a herbal infusion. All it means is that you brew half a liter of it as a tea and put it in a glass bottle and take it with you anywhere you go and sip it seven days before your cycle starts.
There is NO hormones, binding agents, chemicals and preservatives in this formula- all ingredients are natural and tea is hand blended here in sunny Brisbane.
