Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS) refers to physical and emotional symptoms that occur in the one to two weeks before a woman's period. Symptoms often vary between women and resolve around the start of bleeding. Common symptoms include acne, tender breasts, bloating, feeling tired, irritability, and mood changes. PMS affects up to 50% of menstruating women and peaks among women in their 30’s and 40’s.

Symptoms of menstrual pain often begin immediately after ovulation and can last until the end of menstruation, because it is often associated with changes in hormonal levels in the body that occur with ovulation....

When it comes to overall wellness, maintaining digestive health is vital. By paying attention to what and how you eat and by following some good diet and lifestyle principles, you can help your digestive system do the job. Your digestive health is often a reflection of what you put into your body. If you place emphasis on a diet rich in fiber and essential nutrients, coupled with good eating habits, it’ll help the digestive process to work well. On the other hand, eating poorly can increase the risk of digestive problems.

The digestive system relies on certain nutrients and substances to function properly. It is suggested to try to focus on wholefood, which means focus on foods that are as close to their natural state as possible such as fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, poultry and fish, legumes, and raw nuts and seeds. These foods usually always contain higher levels of nutrients than packaged and processed foods, helping to ensure your body, including the digesti...
