Premenstrual syndrome is a treatable condition.

In 2004, The University of Iowa published a report in Primary Psychiatry titled “The Epidemiology of Premenstrual Syndrome.”

  • PMS and premenstrual dysphoric disorder affect approximately 20 to 30 percent of menstruating women, and the average age women with PMS seek treatment is in their 30’s.
  • Women with PMS usually present with physical and mood complaints, with irritability as the hallmark symptom.
  • The major impairment associated with PMS is an adverse effect on personal relationships.
  • Whereas use of over-the-counter (OTC) remedies is common among women with any degree of symptoms, few women with severe symptoms use prescribed drugs.

Some studies have reported that PMS includes “more than 150 symptoms.” Nutritional and Chiropractic intervention may very well be the answer.

Is it possible that chiropractic clinicians are uniquely qualified to diagnose the cause and render specific nutrient and structural therapeutic procedures to help each woman suffering from PMS?

In many cases, nutrition is the root cause of deviations from normal in woman’s reproductive health.

-What are signs and symptoms of protein deficiency and how do they relate to PMS?

  • Menstrual cramps and muscle cramping at rest. These are related to the relationship of protein and calcium.

Loss of menstrual blood alone is often cited as a loss of protein and hemoglobin itself is a protein molecule.
