PMS causes are usually due to situations that cause hormone imbalance and similar to causes of other reproductive problems in females such as endometriosis, PCOS, early menopause, infertility, etc.
The delicate hormone balance is upset by modern lifestyle factors, especially in the industrialized countries where unhealthy habits and environmental factors are major culprits.
Unhealthy habits are not just about food, but also oral contraceptives, over use of prescription drugs and over the counter drugs.
You may not feel lucky if you have PMS symptoms but you are if you consider that you only have PMS symptoms and not the severe problems listed above.
Following are some common symptoms of PMS.
PMS Driving You Crazy?
PMS causes are usually hormone related, although key nutrients can make PMS symptoms worse.
Magnesium is vital to help lessen/avoid PMS symptoms and many women with PMS have sweet cravings. This can make PMS symptoms worse because excess sugar intake robs the body of magnesium, which can make PMS symptoms worse.
Magnesium is vital for the regulation of many processes in the body, not only blood sugar levels.
PMS causes can also be related to blood sugar levels. Insulin is the hormone that regulates blood sugar levels, so, regulating insulin may help with PMS symptoms.
Progesterone can help to regulate blood sugar levels since it helps to balance all hormones and insulin is a hormone.
Many PMS symptoms are similar to low blood sugar symptoms, so eating excess sweets can cause low blood sugar symptoms that intensify PMS symptoms.
Progesterone therapy can help to ease PMS symptoms as well as help to regulate blood sugar levels.
Check out this page on chemicals that mimic the hormone estrogen and how these chemicals can cause many negative side effects. (Xenoestrogens)
These chemicals are prevalent in our food chain (plants and animals) and are an excellent reason to eat healthier food. If not organic, at least food grown free of synthetic chemicals and fertilizers. Many stores now carry food raised free from synthetic chemicals and hormones.
These chemicals disrupt and displace normal hormones in the body causing all kinds of unpleasant side effects. The only natural way to counteract these synthetic estrogenic and correct hormone levels is with better diet and natural progesterone.
Therapeutic doses of progesterone are usually required for normal hormones to regain control of the body because the body cannot make enough progesterone to counteract the synthetic chemicals, once hormone imbalance occurs.
Anything that upsets the good/bad bacteria balance in the digestive system can upset hormone balance.
This includes a junk diet, too much alcohol and prescription drugs, especially antibiotics. Prescription drugs kill off the good bacteria and the bad which can result in overgrowth of bad bacteria. This can seriously upset hormone balance and is one of the major PMS causes.
Oral birth control is another one of the main PMS causes. Oral birth control is created from synthetic hormones, which upsets natural hormone balance.
HRT also causes hormone imbalance because it is also based on synthetic hormones.
PMS treatment can be quick with progesterone cream and dietary changes can enhance results, if your diet is not optimal. Plus, progesterone is natural to the body.
