If you suffer from PMS mood swings, it should comfort you to know that there are several natural remedies that you can use to get rid of them. For example, here are just some of the natural remedies that may work for you:
- Dietary changes

- Homeopathic remedies
- Herbal remedies
- Essential oils from herbs
- Detoxification strategies
- Reading a book about happy topics
- Pet therapy
So how do you determine which one will work best? The best solution is to try several different ones. As you look at the natural cures in the list above you may recognize that they fall into a few different categories.
For example, some of the cures are dietary changes and some are vitamins and minerals and some are homeopathic remedies. Other cures are distraction techniques, such as reading or watching TV. You will have to try the different cures to see which ones work best for you.
One way to do that would be to outline a daily routine for your period.
Here’s an example:
You could spend the first 10-15 minutes of your day talking to and petting your pet. You may be surprised at how this can move your mind from a track of irritability to one of calm and peacefulness. Other strategies you could try include:
Changing your diet so that you eat less processed foods and more vegetables and healthy proteins
Taking herbal supplements that have been shown to reduce or eliminate PMS mood swings and other PMS symptoms
You should look to incorporate three to four different strategies into your routine to begin with – that’s because there may be different causes of your PMS mood swings. Using three or four different strategies will increase your chances of accurately attacking those causes.
Also, don’t give up too soon. It can take a while for some of these strategies to show results. For instance, dietary changes can often take 4 to 8 weeks before a noticeable difference is felt.
So stick with the strategies you have chosen. For instance, if you are making dietary changes just know that if you are giving up “bad foods” like corn oil, vegetable oil, safflower oil, canola oil, sugar, processed foods, high GMO foods, etc. good things are eventually going to happen for you.
Also, it’s important that you understand that dietary deficiencies can cause PMS mood swings and it can be difficult to adjust your diet so that you are getting all the vitamins and minerals you need.
In this situation, it is best to start taking a Period Vitamin. This is a fast, easy way to get all the vitamins, minerals and herbs that will keep you feeling your best during your period. It is much easier and more convenient that relying on dietary changes alone.
