Course Description

Pre-Menstrual Syndrome (PMS) is experienced by over 90% of women, some of whose lives are greatly disrupted by this condition, whether through pain, mood or missed workdays.  Not surprisingly, a woman's monthly cycle is a complex orchestration of hormones that can be affected and even dictated by diet and lifestyle patterns. Health providers are primed to help make a difference for many women who may be struggling to find relief from these symptoms.   This presentation will provide a variety of integrative strategies that may help to ease this time of the month, from vital foods to include and minimize,  healthy and supportive habits around sleep, stress, and exercise, as well as potentially helpful supplementation and supportive body, work like massage and acupuncture.
