Pain relief for PMT
3 in 4 women experience pmt at some stage through their life. Premenstrual tension can cause intense pain, anxiety, headaches, backaches, stomach cramps, irritation, mood swings and nausea and fainting. It is often relieved by the onset of the monthly cycle, but for some the pains continue until the bleeding stops.
There are many reasons that pmt may affect you at certain times of life. A visit to the Doctor may result in a hormonal prescription for you to take. Unfortunately for some people this may result in problems further down the line and this is the reason that many women seek to find a natural prescription which works with their body rather than altering the reactions of the body.
Homeopathy works by stimulating the self healing mechanism, asking it to reboot the hormonal balance and correct itself. There are particular remedies which help address the cause of the problem and others which help relieve the symptoms at the time of suffering.
Taking a homeopathic remedy allows you to choose one which is right for you and your symptoms. There is no "one size fits all," the remedies are chosen to match you and your symptoms exactly so if three people come with a similar symptom, they will each receive a different remedy because the cause of the symptom may well be very different from the next person.
