Symptoms of pre-menstrual tension (PMT) occur when our hormones are out of balance. This is often caused by dietary factors, man made oestrogen’s in our cosmetics and cleaning products, &/or liver issue.
Symptoms of PMT are categorised as follows –
A-anxiety; B-bloating, (abdomen and breasts); C-cravings; D-depression.
But can also include lower backache, headaches, insomnia, joint pain, food allergies and water retention. Not to mention wild mood swings.
Most women experience at least one of the above symptoms, but many experience more or all. PMT symptoms usually occur in the 7 days before menstruation, but can start to present themselves up to 14 days before.
