Home Remedies for Premenstrual Syndrome

1. Oatmeal
• It breaks down slowly and gradually releases sugar into the bloodstream.
• This slow, steady release combats the sugar craving that comes with PMS.
• Rye bread, pasta, basmati rice, and fruit produce the same effect.

2. Pasta
• This is enriched with magnesium, which is important for normal hormonal function.
• A lack of magnesium may be the cause of muscle cramps.

Other magnesium-rich foods include:
• green vegetables
• breakfast cereals (skip those sugary ones)
• potatoes

3. Sunflower seeds
• They’re rich in omega-6 fatty acid, which may be missing in women who suffer with PMS.
• Pumpkin and sesame seeds are also rich in it.

4. Use Kitchen towel
• Soak it in water, wring it out, and then warm it up in the microwave for a minute.
• Moist heats are soothing, and so apply this to the belly when having abdominal or ovarian cramps.
• Be careful not to burn yourself.

5. Ice
• A nice cooling drink may be relaxing.
• Wrap some ice in a kitchen towel to use as a cold compress on aching muscles and PMS headaches.

6. Avocados
• These contain natural serotonin.
• This may supplement the mood-lifting brain chemical naturally produced by the body.
Other foods that are also sources of serotonin are:
• Dates
• Plums
• Eggplants
• Papayas
• Plantains
• Pineapple

7. Bananas
• These are rich in potassium.
• They can relieve the bloating and swelling of water retention that comes with PMS.
Other foods that are potassium-rich too are:
• Figs
• Black currants
• Potatoes
• Broccoli
• Onions
• Tomatoes

8. Cherries
• Eat 10 fresh cherries on an empty stomach each day for one week before the start of the menstrual period.

9. Chicken
• It’s rich in Vitamin B6, which may be depleted in women who suffer from PMS.
• Vitamin B6 may help relieve depression by raising levels of serotonin, a mood-enhancer, in the brain.
Other B6-rich foods include:
• Fish
• Milk
• Brown rice
• Whole grains
• Soybeans
• Beans
• Walnuts
• Green leafy vegetables
