What is Urinary Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)?

PMS is a complex of physical and emotional symptoms that many women experience in the days leading up to their menstrual period.

What causes Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)?

The exact cause of PMS is unknown, but it's likely linked to fluctuations in female hormones, particularly estrogen and progesterone, during the menstrual cycle. Other Contributing Factors: Diet, stress, and lack of exercise may worsen PMS symptoms.

PMS Signs and Symptoms

Common symptoms of PMS include:

    • Physical symptoms: bloating, fatigue, headaches, weight gain, breast tenderness and pain in the abdomen commonly known as menstrual cramps.
    • Emotional symptoms: irritability, mood swings, anxiety, tearfulness, difficulty concentrating.
    • Food cravings and changes in appetite.
    • Severe PMS symptoms may be diagnosed as Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD).

Tibb Lifestyle Factors for Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)

Dietary Adjustments

Tibb recognizes four temperaments: Phlegmatic, Sanguine, Melancholic, and Bilious. Each temperament is associated with specific dietary recommendations for PMS relief. A consultation with a qualified Tibb practitioner is recommended to determine your dominant temperament and receive personalized dietary advice.

General Diet Tips

Consume high-quality fruits, vegetables, and yogurt for essential vitamins and minerals. Choose lean protein sources like fish and chicken over red meat. Limit processed foods, sugar, and refined carbohydrates. Reduce salt intake a week before your period. Consider foods rich in calcium, such as sesame seeds, celery, and oranges. Avoid or minimize caffeine and alcohol before your period.

Herbal Remedies

Rosemary Tea: Steep a teaspoon of dried rosemary leaves in hot water for a calming pre-menstrual beverage. Evening Primrose Oil: Consider taking evening primrose oil supplements to potentially reduce cramping and mood swings. (Consult your doctor before starting any supplements.) Poppy Seed and Almond Drink: Blend 2 teaspoons of poppy seeds, 10 almonds, and milk with honey for a breakfast drink that may help ease symptoms. Fennel, Cumin, and Cardamom Decoction: Prepare a decoction by boiling fennel seeds, cumin, and cardamom in water, straining, and drinking to potentially alleviate symptoms.

Other Lifestyle Practices

Breathing Exercises: Regular practice of Tibb deep breathing exercises can help reduce irritability, anxiety, and mood swings. Physical Exercise: Engaging in regular physical activity, even for 30 minutes a day, can improve mood, reduce stress, and regulate blood sugar levels. Sleep Hygiene: Prioritize adequate sleep (7-8 hours per night) in the days leading up to your period to manage symptoms. Relaxation Techniques: Consider taking a warm bath with Epsom salts, getting a massage, or practicing meditation to reduce stress and anxiety. Mindfulness: Focusing on the present moment and accepting physical and emotional changes can be beneficial.
