PMS and vitamin deficiency

Image
http://www.ultrapms.com/pms.html "MOST PREVALENT CAUSES OF PMS Increased demands on their time, negative changes in their diet and nutrition, increasing stress, and lack of proper exercise, leave women struggling to balance their lives. The harsh reality of the modern-day woman?s life is one of constant physical and emotional wear and tear. The woman?s carefully synchronized body is out of equilibrium and she is out of touch with her true emotions. Devoured, and often not much appreciated in the balance, many women feel a sense of living on the brink. PMS in most women is brought on by a combination of diet, stress, vitamin and especially mineral deficiency. CRITICAL IMPORTANCE OF INVERTED CALCIUM/MAGNESIUM RATIO Emphasizing magnesium intake over calcium is a critical factor in preventing PMS. Women experiencing PMS have been found consistently to have low blood magnesium levels. Magnesium and calcium must be taken together for either one to be effectively abs

Depression

How do women experience depression? Depression is more common among women than among men. Biological, life cycle, hormonal, and psychosocial factors that women experience may be linked to women's higher depression rate. Researchers have shown that hormones directly affect the brain chemistry that controls emotions and mood. For example, women are especially vulnerable to developing postpartum depression after giving birth, when hormonal and physical changes and the new responsibility of caring for a newborn can be overwhelming. Some women may also have a severe form of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) called premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). PMDD is associated with the hormonal changes that typically occur around ovulation and before menstruation begins. During the transition into menopause, some women experience an increased risk for depression. In addition, osteoporosis—bone thinning or loss—may be associated with depression. 11  Scientists are exploring all of these

Medical Rule Outs

The first step to getting appropriate treatment is to visit a doctor or mental health specialist. Certain medications, and some medical conditions such as viruses or a thyroid disorder, can cause the same symptoms as depression. A doctor can rule out these possibilities by doing a physical exam, interview, and lab tests. In order to accurately diagnosis you or your child's Mood Disorder or ADHD, etc. ,  I would like to suggest that you make an appointment with your Primary Care Physician to discuss possible contributing medical conditions, such as: Blood sugar imbalance, hypoglycemia, diabetes Anemia Thyroid imbalance Hypertension Ferritin (Iron stores), B12, B6, folic acid Vitamin D, RBC zinc, copper, and magnesium Neurotoxin exposure (e.g. lead poisoning, mercury other heavy metals) Infections (e.g., encephalitis) Use of medication (bronchodilators, isoniazid, alkathisia from neuroleptics) Medication side effects, interactions Viruses Complete blood count, basi

The B Complex Vitamins

Image
Note : You must take a B-Complex vitamin with any single B (numbered) vitamin for it to absorb. "The B-complex vitamins are essential to mental and emotional well-being. They cannot be stored in our bodies, so we depend entirely on our daily diet to supply them. B vitamins are destroyed by alcohol, refined sugars, nicotine, and caffeine so it is no surprise that many people may be deficient in these. Here's a rundown of recent finding about the relationship of B-complex vitamins to depression: Vitamin B1 (thiamine): The brain uses this vitamin to help convert glucose, or blood sugar, into fuel, and without it the brain rapidly runs out of energy. This can lead to fatigue, depression, irritability, anxiety, and even thoughts of suicide. Deficiencies can also cause memory problems, loss of appetite, insomnia, and gastrointestinal disorders. The consumption of refined carbohydrates, such as simple sugars, drains the body's B1 supply. Vitamin B3 (niacin): Pellagra-w
