Menstruation is a normal part of every woman’s life, but PMS and
irregular periods are not.
In fact, nothing is “normal” about premenstrual symptoms or other menstrual problems
— from cramps and menorrhagia to irregular bleeding and amenorrhea — that disrupt
the lives of so many women.
These issues are not just uncomfortable — they’re symptoms of underlying health
problems that need to addressed.
The root cause of menstrual problems is hormonal imbalance. And that’s why conventional
medicine can’t really help you much. The standard approach is to treat the symptoms,
not the root source that’s causing them, with antidepressants or hormone therapy,
and most women would rather avoid both if possible.
Fortunately, there are natural solutions that offer lasting relief without drugs
or their side effects and health risks.
We understand that stress, genetics and other factors contribute to PMS and menstrual
problems. But the food you eat, the supplements you take, and the way you live your
life matter even more.

hormonal balance so you feel better and more like yourself. And when you take natural
steps to balance your hormones, everything in your body works better.
