Different treatment options for PMS symptoms and their pros and cons.

Recent research from Dr. Elizabeth R. Bertone-Johnson and colleagues at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst suggests that women with diets rich in Vitamin D and Calcium are 30%-40% less likely to suffer from PMS symptoms.

For some women, symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome can be a horrible daily battle. According to new research by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists (ACOG) about 85% of women experience PMS symptoms. There are over 150 symptoms that numerous women deal with on a day to day basis. Symptoms vary from woman to woman, but most complain of debilitating pain from cramps, depression and anger, pain from headaches and muscles, sleep disturbances, nausea and diarrhea, weight gain and bloating, and acne and oily skin. Those who are lucky only suffer for about 1 week, but many are faced with these problems for most of the month. Many women are desperately seeking relief, searching for any treatment option they can find.

Currently, one of the most prevalent ways to treat PMS is with powerful antidepressants or anti-anxiety prescriptions. Some of those most commonly prescribed include alprazolam (Zanax) and fluoxetine (Prozac). These prescription medications work by affecting certain chemicals in the brain that may have become unbalanced. A handful of women experience some relief from these medications, but most discontinue the use of the drug because the side effects can be worse than the original symptoms.

Side effects from these drugs create a long list of multiple problems, but range anywhere from an allergic reaction like a rash or vomiting to decreased sex drive, hallucinations, nightmares, weight gain, headaches and depression. Also, for women who are prescribed alprazolam, they, in particular, must be continuously monitored because the drug is very addictive.

It may surprise you, but synthetic drugs with numerous side effects aren't the only effective treatment for symptoms of PMS. In a clinical double-blind study of 500 women, Uterol™, an herbal supplement made by Selmedica Healthcare, was found effective in relieving several PMS symptoms, such as cramps, nausea, irritability, mild depression and headaches in 87% of test subjects. The ingredients in Uterol™ help improve your menstrual symptoms by working on your mental health, physical health, digestive health, and hormones. This product contains no soy and has reportedly had no adverse side effects of any kind. In fact, the side effects of Uterol™ have only proven to be beneficial.

A one month supply of Uterol which includes a 60ct. bottle is only $67. In addition, Selmedica Healthcare takes a substantial risk by offering to refund 100% of the purchase price if a customer is not satisfied. Their guarantee extends for 12 months from the purchase date. What pharmacy or drug company offers that kind of confidence in their product?

So before you decide that drugging yourself to cope with the symptoms that can plague you on a regular basis is your only hope, consider that a more natural approach which addresses the cause of those symptoms may be more economically and physically beneficial, especially in the long run.
