herbal treatment for pmddOnce you become disenchanted with the world of pharmaceutical drugs, instant cure pills, and lab made miracle cures that really only mask symptoms of various conditions, one place you might be looking into is the realm of herbal remedies. A herbal treatment for PMDD might be just what you need once you realise that a more natural solution to this disorder will be of more benefit to you, but where to start, and also, does it really work?

I am a big believer in the usage of additional herbal and vitamin supplements to help with PMDD and many other conditions as they do not come with the sort of side effects of drugs and used correctly can work in harmony with your natural healing processes rather than fighting against them. However, no matter how big a believer in herbs and vitamins I am I do know they are not the ONLY answer. Too many try to peddle herbal potions and tonics that claim to cure so many things when really it is just one piece in a more elaborate puzzle – you need MORE than just herbs.

That being said, they are a very helpful addition and for PMDD there are a couple that can helps such as:

  • Magnesium– Taking 250-350 milligrams of magnesium daily can also greatly reduce PMDD symptoms.  It can help boost mood, improve sleep quality, reduce cramping and pain, and even help reduce stress. Again be aware of how much magnesium you already consume from food as well.
  • Chasteberry- The chasteberry, or monk’s pepper, has long been used to help treat women suffering from PMDD.  While doctors are uncertain exactly how it works, studies show that this herbal remedy helps to alleviate many PMDD symptoms, including irritability, headaches, and mood swings.
  • St. John’s Wort- This herb is known as nature’s antidepressant, and numerous studies have shown it to be as effective as or more effective than traditional antidepressants.  If depression commonly accompanies your PMDD, you may wish to consider these supplements to provide the relief that you need.
