ESCAPING THE PMS MAZE

by Geoffrey Redmond, MD
 

SOME OTHER ALTERNATIVE APPROACHES

 Acupuncture can be worth a try but it is time consuming and expensive. Be sure practitioner is reputable, licensed and uses disposable needles. Also, needles should not be inserted in chest wall.

Massage Works but effect wears off. Expensive if done regularly. Effect depends on ability and skill of therapist.

Fasting and detoxification These have been popular of late. Fasting is thousands of years old and is a major healing modality in Ayurveda (traditional Indian medicine). However, there may be adverse mood changes during fasting; if you want to try it, pick a time when you feel well and demands on you are low.  Follow common sense and avoid anything extreme. Slender women and those with hypoglycemia symptoms may not tolerate fasting well. It probably depends on individual metabolism but fasting advocates often do not allow for this. A physician who is aware of the effects of fasting can help you plan for a method that suits your individual metabolism.
