Tired of being moody during your period? Fed up with your boyfriend or husband saying “you must be on your period?”
Well, there are actually several natural ways to prevent PMS mood swings. These methods don’t have dangerous side effects like many traditional medical treatments and they have been shown again and again to work.
So why not try them and see if one or more work for you. These could make you feel better and get your significant other off your back!
Here are five natural treatments for PMS mood swings:
1. Herbal Remedy
This herbal remedy for PMS mood swings is centered around the liver which is where experts believe a person’s emotions are processed. If your liver gets backed up then negative emotions can’t be broken down and gotten rid of and instead will continue to circulate around the body causing a worse and worse mood.
This remedy calls for you to take milk thistle to cleanse the liver and get it back functioning optimally. Drink a cup of milk thistle tea daily for best results. The dosage is one tea bag per cup of tea. If you decide to make milk thistle tea from the raw herb, you should use one teaspoon full.
2. Homeopathic Remedy
This remedy for PMS mood swings involves using one or more of the following homeopathic solutions that are recommended for women when they have PMS – Lachesis, Natrum muriaticum, Sepia, Pulsatilla and/or Nux vomica.
Each of these solutions is a distilled water extract of different substances that are thought to help women relieve PMS symptoms such as mood swings. Simply place the recommended number of drops of the solution on your tongue for relief.
3. Emotional Remedy
With this remedy for PMS mood swings you will want to develop an attitude of gratefulness. If you are grateful for everything in your life it will be much harder to get mad or angry or allow yourself to fall into a bad mood.
Just tell yourself that you are going to be grateful no matter what and then live according to that belief. One way to remain grateful is to use the principle of distraction.
Here’s how it works: your cat pees on the carpet. How much more understanding would you be if the cat was not house trained or if it was an older cat with a health problem? You wouldn’t focus on the mess for hours and hours because you were willing to look at other aspects of the situation. It should be the same way when bad things happen in your life. Look at the good things and remember that all bad things shall pass.
4. Period Vitamin Remedy

Period vitamin contains B vitamins, magnesium, calcium, and vitamin C. Recommended dosage levels are:

5. Mental Remedy
Here you will be relying on your mental willpower. Make a firm commitment to yourself that you are not going to let a bad mood ruin your day. One way to do this would be to allow yourself to feel bad for five minutes and no longer. At the end of the five minute period you make yourself feel better and if any negative thoughts creep back during the day you capture them and get rid of them.
