PMS relief however, is available. Some women take over the counter medications that reduce the symptoms, while others need the extra strength that a prescription from their doctor provides. Some women take birth control pills simply for the fact that it reduces the intensity of their period. But some women are looking for a more holistic approach to dealing with their period and that is what we are going to talk about here.

There are many natural cures for PMS that might be effective for some women and not for others. You see, there's no single cure that will cover all of the PMS symptoms and provide complete PMS relief for each and every woman. Even are not a cure all. Women who put up with many symptoms often require different medications to try and live comfortably. It is the same with holistic or non-traditional remedies as well.

Thankfully, women don't typically suffer from each of these symptoms but may experience all over the course of their lives as well as a differing degree of severity for each symptom.

In studies Asian women have been found to suffer the least from PMS or menopausal symptoms because they eat a diet high in soy. Soy in plants and other foods is rich in Phytoestrogens which has the effect of increasing the estrogen levels in the body. Some women also find that reducing the amount of salt the week before their periods helps with some PMS relief as well. Compound the effect of reducing salt with increasing the amount of water intact will enhance the reduction in salt as well.
