The dreaded PMS… what causes it and how can I treat it to feel better?
Dr Graham Duncombe from Skin, Body & Health Renewal responds:
“PMS is caused by your body reacting to falling hormone levels in your cycle signaling the end of ovulation and leading up to menstruation. This is known as the Luteal Phase of your cycle. It can be alleviated by supplementing low doses of progesterone over this time together with omega 3 essential fatty acids, vitamin B, anti-inflammatories and diuretics.”
