How to End Your PMS – For Good


Do you severe cramping or get mood swings during your monthly cycle?

I have to be honest, I haven’t had a monthly period in 26 months.  I’ve been either nursing or pregnant for that long.  But, my monthly cycle came along this time and I was C-R-A-B-B-Y.  I was crabby, disgusted, and basically mad at the world.  Since that is not my typical demeanor I had nothing else to relate it to besides “that time” of the month. 

Even if our symptoms are mild like I considered mine, perhaps we have more that we haven’t even connected with our monthly cycle.  Then, there are those of us who don’t have mild symptoms at all.  They are horrid and terrible feeling symptoms.

Do you have symptoms like:

  • abdominal weight gain
  • allergies like asthma, rashes and hives
  • bloating
  • cold hands and feet
  • cramps
  • decreased libido
  • fatigue
  • fibrosystic breasts
  • hair loss
  • irritability
  • infertility
  • memory loss
  • mood swings, especially around your period

Did you know? It doesn’t have to be this way.

You can find relief.  In the book “Quit PMS“, Lauren of Empowered Sustenance gives you the tools that you need in order to toss those discomforts for good!

My favorite chapter of “Quit PMS” is about the foods that are most helpful in help end your vicious PMS cycle.  There is no greater information than the medicinal foods you can eat more of right?

1. Dairy

If you think you are dairy sensitive or intolerant you have to read this chapter.    This book gives valuable information about how dairy can be helpful for your hormones, where to get the best dairy, and why it is the best.  Take a sneak peek on some of the great information that you will find:

“First, the calcium content of milk plays an important role in metabolic hormone
homeostasis. When calcium intake is too low, Parathyroid Hormone (PTH) is
released to free calcium from bones and raise blood calcium levels. PTH reduces
the cellular respiration of cells… in other words, it lowers the cell’s metabolism.
PTH is also inflammatory. Adequate calcium from dairy, when paired with
adequate magnesium intake, is an anti-stress factor that supports a healthy
metabolism. (Quit PMS, Pg 38)

2. Salt

Salt does an array of amazing things in the body.  But, I wouldn’t go for the unrefined version.  Quit PMS share all the great reasons that you need to add salt to your diet to kick your PMS blues.

“One of the things that happen when there isn’t enough sodium in the
diet is that more aldosterone is synthesized. Aldosterone causes less sodium to
be lost in the urine and sweat, but it achieves that at the expense of the
increased loss of potassium, magnesium, and probably calcium… Magnesium
deficiency is extremely common, but a little extra salt in the diet makes it easier
to retain the magnesium in our foods.” Ray Peat Ph.D

3. Eggs

Eggs are a staple in our diet.  I also recommend for my clients that I Doula for after they give birth to increase the fat and eggs in their diet to help balance their hormones.  These wonderful little nuggets of health can be amazing for a hormone healing journey.

But, why are eggs so good for you?  And, what is the best way to eat them?

You will find the answers to your questions about the above foods and more in “Quit PMS.”  Trust me, you will not be disappointed.

That is not all you will learn when it comes to great foods to eat that will nourish your body and end your PMS.  This book is packed with all the great information you have been looking for in order to find your way to true, whole health and healing and not be overcome by discomfort of symptoms from a monthly cycle.

  1. I really need to buy this. I’ve made soooo many changes in the last 1 year and 8 months – I mean, everything from diet and going “green” – and the one thing I still struggle with is PMS symptoms. I have Endometriosis as well, and I didn’t even GET PMS symptoms until around the time I was diagnosed with that. My BFF and I talk about this everrry month and I just said to her yesterday that we need to get to the bottom of this for ourselves… and then I saw this on Pinterest last night. It was meant to be. 🙂

    Thank you so much for writing this, I can’t wait to see how it goes. I’ll let you know. But just an FYI… I have to be honest, it takes me a good month or two to start something new, so I’ll be back lata. Lol. But I’ll still come visit you in the meantime!

    I’m Rachael, btw. It’s nice to “meet” you. I’m new to Love Yourself Green, but used to blog before I became bedridden in 2013.

    Ok, I’ll shut up now! Haha. 😉
