PMS Q & A

by Uzzi Reiss, MD

What is PMS?

PMS describes the symptoms that happen in the days just before a woman’s menstrual cycle. About 85% of women will experience at least one symptom of PMS. They include:

  • Breast tenderness
  • Fatigue
  • Food cravings
  • Bloating
  • Irritability
  • Cramps
  • Headaches
  • Sleep disruptions
  • Low sex drive

The severity of these symptoms varies from woman to woman and can largely be corrected with nutritional and hormonal interventions.

No specific treatment works for all women. You may need to experiment with different combinations of hormones and nutritional support to resolve your symptoms. This is where Dr. Reiss’ vast experience benefits you. He can figure out the best way to start and how to adjust treatment so it is successful.

Are certain women more likely to develop symptoms of PMS?

If you have a family history of severe PMS, you’re more likely to experience it, too. Other risk factors include:

  • Age: You’re more likely to get PMS in your 30s and later
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • High stress
  • High caffeine intake
  • Anxiety or other mental health problems
  • A diet deficient in vitamin B6, magnesium, or calcium

What are hormonal solutions to PMS?

You experience PMS due to the dramatic changes in your hormones that occur during your menstrual cycle. Dr. Reiss offers bioidentical hormonal and nutritional therapy to help balance out your levels, even during this time of the month, so the symptoms are less severe, or disappear entirely. Bioidentical hormones are derived from plant ingredients that exactly match the makeup of hormones your body produces naturally.

What nutritional solutions are available for PMS?

Healthy eating goes a long way in mitigating your PMS symptoms. A diet high in processed foods and refined carbs is more likely to increase inflammation and make you feel PMS symptoms with greater intensity. Each person will be put on an individualized program to reduce and reverse their symptoms. Drastic reduction of all forms of sugar, caffeine, sodium, and alcohol also helps reduce the severity of PMS symptoms.

Foods high in salt increase uncomfortable bloating and water retention. Excessive alcohol and caffeine intake correlate with prolonged cramping.

Each person will be put on an individualized nutritional program to reduce their symptoms. This is what has worked for Dr. Reiss and his patients for the last 35 years.
