How Biotherapy Alternative
Medicine Clinic can help with
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS).
The menstrual cycle is a good indicator of a
women's general health. When the flow is
adequate, regular, and without discomfort,
blood production and circulation is healthy.
Stressful lifestyle, poor eating habits, and
emotional upset encourage blood deficiency
and blocked Chi (vital energy), leading to
irregularity and pain.
Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) is the cyclic
recurrence of a group of symptoms that peak
7 to 10 days before menstruation and
disappear a few hours after the onset of the
menstrual flow. Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
is a complex of symptoms, which affect
millions of women each month. Symptoms of
PMS can include (but are not limited to):
bloating, cramping, breast tenderness,
fatigue, headache, emotional upset, and
constipation. It is believed that up to 80%
of women of reproductive age experience some
symptoms of PMS.
Often the sensations are very mild and not
bothersome. For a large number of women the
symptoms can be debilitating. The physical,
emotional, and mental changes are the result
of hormonal and biochemical fluctuations
which normally occur at this stage in the
menstrual cycle and how the nervous system
responds to those changes.
There are different types of PMS depending
on predominant symptoms:
First type is associated with
anxiety, nervousness; mood swings,
irritability, insomnia and depression.
Second type of PMS is one
characterized by an increased appetite,
craving, particularly sweets. The excess
sugars then cause headaches, heart
palpitations, fatigue and fainting.
Third type of PMS is dominated by
symptoms of fatigue, depression,
forgetfulness, confusion and lethargy.
Fourth type of PMS is associated
with weight gain from water retention,
breast congestion and tenderness,
abdominal bloating and tenderness, and
facial and leg edema.

Hormones are intimately involved in PMS.
They are very potent modifiers of
biochemistry. Any abnormal fluctuation in
hormone levels can cause dramatic and
erratic alterations in physiology. An excess

behind many symptoms of PMS.
