Fifteen years ago when Pauline Houle embarked on a quest to heal her own PMS, she found astounding information she is now passing along to all women who suffer from PMS.
Houle discovered that PMS symptoms are almost always related to unresolved emotional or psychological issues in a woman's life. She further found that when the connection to the emotional reality is made, these symptoms disappear.
Understanding this Mind-Body connection, and how to work through the issues that manifest themselves as PMS symptoms, is what has changed the lives of so many women who have read her book.
My Beauty and My Beast - Mind, Body and PMS is now available in English and is accompanied by a workbook and questionnaires/exercises that lead women through their symptoms and their own healing and solutions.
Women who have read the book, and who have followed the plan that Houle reveals, report that PMS-related symptoms including, migraines, cramps, emotional disturbances, painful symptoms of all kinds and confusion simply disappear.
