Moodiness, headaches, painful cramps, bloating, etc., are all common symptoms of PMS in cyclical women. However, just because they are common… Does not mean they are normal.
Profound PMS symptoms often signal that a woman’s body is not regulating FSH and LH hormones correctly.
Nicole references an article from the National University of Natural Medicine, where they compiled evidence that supports the notion in which Chaste Tree relieves PMS symptoms.
The article refers to Chaste Tree as Vitex, another common name for the herb. It says, “Compared to fluoxetine and oral contraceptives, the efficacy of Vitex was no different, meaning it worked just as well.”
Oral contraceptives are often prescribed to relieve the body of PMS-related symptoms. However, they are associated with side-effects which can cause the body more harm than intended. With natural herbs, such as Chaste Tree, women are relieved of their PMS-related symptoms by restoring their hormonal balance, instead of manipulating it.
