PMS. Pre-menstrual cycle. Irritability. Crying. Mood Swings. Bloating. Headaches. Losing your motivation. And sometimes just feeling “blah”. It’s easy to blame things on PMS, but have you ever wondered if what you’re feeling is actually your hormones? Or something else at play.

To balance out your hormones you want to look at something like chaste tree, which will balance both estrogen and progesterone. Magnesium can be helpful for offsetting some of those tight muscles; so curl up with a book in a epsom salt bath to nurse that achiness. Plus, it will be great for easing those mood swings.

Gymnema is an amazing herb because it helps decrease sugar and carbohydrate cravings in a pinch. But for a long-term fix you actually want to support your cortisol levels, as high cortisol (hello stress and busy lives) makes us crave those sugars.

My favourite flower is also known for its ability to increase progesterone levels and balance androgens. Peonies aren’t just beautiful, they’re medically very unique for this ability. IV Nutrition Therapy will help give you a much needed energy boost and lavender can also help support your mood.

Fennel and dandelion root will help with that fluid retention, as well decreasing your consumption of added-salt foods during that time frame. Food has a lot to do with supporting your body fluids during this time so make sure you also up your consumption of magnesium-supporting foods.
