PMS (premenstrual syndrome) is a condition that consists of many symptoms that are related to a woman’s menstruation. Some of the more common symptoms of PMS include mood swings, depression, irritability, anger, confusion, insomnia, changes in libido, overeating, cravings for sweets and salty foods, acne, headaches, alcohol intolerance, abdominal cramps, hives and bloating. Some other less common symptoms of PMS can include dizziness, heart palpitations, nausea, fainting, problems with urination, sore throat, sinus problems, breast tenderness, asthma, swelling of the legs and hands, and problems with coordination.

Homeopathic remedies are one of the easier and more natural methods for doing this.
