Women's hormones are powerful regulators of mind, body and emotions. Many women find this especially true during the premenstrual days. Is your productivity and feeling of well-being affected during your premenstrual days? You are not alone. It is reported up to 1/2 of all North American women between 20 and 50 years of age are affected by premenstrual hormone flux. Through proper nutritional support, chiropractic care can help you really feel relaxed, peaceful and productive again naturally.
A recent study was performed to determine the effectiveness of chiropractic for the treatment of reducing symptoms associated with Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). The subjects were given an initial medical screening by a qualified medical practitioner as well as a full physical chiropractic examination. Spinal dysfunction and subluxations were identified using standard techniques. All of the treatments were rendered by one of two experienced, qualified chiropractors, with each woman being treated by the same chiropractor throughout the study. Treatment was given two or three times within the ten-day period prior to the commencement of each menses. This was continued for a minimum of three cycles, during which time the subjects recorded their symptoms daily. At the end of the treatment program, all of the women had indicated that their PMS symptoms had improved overall while under chiropractic care and they considered chiropractic an appropriate method of treatment.
It is normal and natural. There is a common misconception that the change begins a time of inevitable and prolonged discomfort and declining quality of life. The reality is that menopause only marks the end of child bearing years. Supporting the body in its ability to manage a smooth hormonal transition and replenishing its energy reserves is important to a continuously active lifestyle. In harmony with that goal, there are specific vitamin, mineral and special nutritional factors that can be taken.
