Taking Charge of Your Health

Hello and thanks for joining! I am Dr. Angela
Agrios. I am a naturopathic doctor trained in general practice medicine, specializing
in natural medicine care. I am excited to talk with you about safe, effective treatments
that relieve PMS! Let’s talk about them…First let’s talk about the symptoms we are trying
to address. Common symptoms of PMS include migraines & headaches, water retention, bloating,
breast swelling and tenderness, acne, mood changes like irritability or weepiness, sugar
& chocolate cravings, and of course cramps and low back pain. PMS symptoms can all be
addressed and improved by supporting your body’s ability to maintain hormone balance.
This can be done through dietary changes, exercise, nutrient supplementation, adequate
rest, stress reduction, and bio-identical progesterone. Let’s talk some more about basics
strategies that will help us all. Number 1: We need to clean up our diet!! This means
minimizing processed and refined foods, sugar, simple carbohydrates, caffeine, and alcohol,
and in their place we need to consume LOTS of fresh produce. Always choose to eat organic
foods when possible. Number 2: Exercise is a good idea!! Exercise will improve blood
circulation and increase endorphin levels which will help relieve cramping, water retention
and improve our mood. Number 3: Nutritional supplements can be a big help: B vitamins,
Magnesium, Essential fatty acids like fish oil and evening primrose oil, and vitamin
E can all offer dramatic relief of PMS symptoms! Number 4: Increasing rest and decreasing stress
is also vitally important. Yes, our minds and bodies are connected! Our bodies do their
repair work while we sleep. It’s difficult to maintain optimal health and balance of
any system in our body when we are overworking and not getting adequate rest. In addition
to improving our diet and lifestyle choices, natural progesterone replacement therapy may
also be helpful for some of us. This is something that can be determined by testing your hormone
levels via blood, saliva, or urine. PMS can be effectively relieved when you are able
to identify and address the cause of the symptoms. You may need support in one or all of the
areas discussed in this video in order to improve your hormone balance and eliminate
PMS symptoms. Working with a naturopathic doctor can help you prioritize which treatments
would be best for you to start with. You can expect an improvement in your symptoms, if
not complete relief, within a few months after starting naturopathic care. If you would like
help with the evaluation and treatment of PMS, find a naturopathic doctor near you.
