I know upping B vitamins, magnesium and vit. E is a help. I am looking for things I can do nutritionally (rather than strictly supplements or medication). I am scouring my textbooks for ideas...
Anyone have any ideas (besides Chocolate )
as far as the chocolate goes...i've been doing cacao nibs in smoothies and such since cacao is high in magnesium. what the heck, i like chocolate, if it's good for me i figured i might as well.
b vitamins are abundant in liver.
and my man . Momma to ds1 (11-'04) , ds2 (8-'08) , dd (3-'12) , and Mr Blue, Chiyo, and Fireball, our 3 .
The fatty acids helped me and the B vitamins helped me. I *do* recommend red meat, though only if you already digest it well.
Finally, what you didn't ask ... after trying diet and lifestyle changes, acupuncture, chiropractic, and at least fifty different expensive nutritional supplements, -- all of which helped a little -- ... I was finally cured of PMS through homeopathy. Homeopathy really works! Budget $100 per month for 8 months of routine visits with a homeopathic practitioner who uses complex homeopathy (not just the 32 or however many remedies, but the full range of products coming out of Germany and Switzerland).
& Caitlin, I definitely will check into a full scale homeopathic workup. I had one about 8 years ago for a different health issue -- and the ND is in a different state - but I will look for one here. Thanks!
