PMS – Enough said…

Premenstrual syndrome is joked about by so many people; especially men and even the very women who suffer from it!

It is marked by unexplainable and unpredictable symptoms in women from mood swings to murder. PMS is a serious problem and should be taken seriously! Did you know that four out of ten women of childbearing age suffer from PMS? And if they are suffering – then their families and friends are suffering too!

Researchers describe PMS as an abnormal response to normal hormonal changes producing a host of symptoms including irritability, mood swings, tension, ineffectiveness, lack of motor coordination, mental fog, altered eating habits, variations in sexual drive and social impairment.

A lot of women decide to suffer with the pain or take prescription drugs that could have potential harmful side effects. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to relieve symptoms safely?

In one study, women with PMS histories were given chiropractic adjustments. The care continued for four menstrual cycles and consisted of 5-7 adjustments per month. They were evaluated in ten different categories of symptoms (irritability, mood swings, tension, ineffectiveness, lack of motor coordination, mental/cognitive functioning, eating habits, variations in sexual drive, overall physical symptoms and social impairment). The subjects showed improvement in all ten categories with significant improvements in the areas of sexual drive, social impairments and mood swings.
