PMS PMDD Treatment Specialist Seattle

Regain Your Balance with Healing Treatments for PMS/PMDD

If you or someone you love suffers from Premenstrual Disorder (PMS) or Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD), you understand how stressful the symptoms can be. For many women, hormone changes in the body during the week(s) before your period cause unpleasant physical and emotional side effects, including:

  • Mood swings
  • Breast tenderness
  • Food cravings
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Bloating
  • Insomnia
  • Headaches/Migraines

While symptoms resolve with or within two days of the onset of menstruation, PMS can put stress on the individual and increase the need for self-care. Symptoms often recur in a predictable pattern each month, depending on the regularity of one’s cycle. These issues usually peak during the time between a woman’s late 20s and early 30s.

PMS symptoms tend to recur predictably, depending on the regularity of your cycle, but may be more intense some months and less intense during others. These variations may be affected by stress, caffeine intake, nutrition, and sleep. Our menopause specialists at Water’s Edge are happy to help you determine what factors may be worsening your symptoms and what treatments, including bioidentical hormone therapy, nutritional counseling, acupuncture, and herbal remedies, can help you regain your sense of balance and rejuvenation.

PMDD

Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) is a condition in which the symptoms of PMS are amplified and include irritability, tension, and severe depression before the onset of menstruation. While PMS may only mildly affect a woman’s functioning, PMDD can be debilitating and affect one’s career, relationships, and ability to perform activities of daily living. Symptoms include:

If you are suffering from PMDD, your physician may have recommended SSRIs, or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, to restore your mood. However, because the shifts you are experiencing are largely hormone-based, only hormonal solutions like bioidentical hormone therapy and supportive nutritional and energetic treatments can truly bring your body back into balance and prevent symptoms from occurring in the future.

In addition, the effects of other hormone-based and nervous system imbalances, including mood disorders, somatoform disorders, and thyroid and endocrine conditions, may intensify with menstrual cycle changes. Balancing your hormones can contribute to your health as a whole person, all month long.
