1. TAKE A BATH: Some common PMS symptoms women suffer from are: stress, irritability, anxiety, mood swings, losing their temper easily, loss of confidence, aggression and crying for no reason. Try to reduce your stress by soaking in the bath with a few drops of jasmine, geranium or camomile oil. Other relaxation techniques and massage can also help.

2. VITAMIN B6: sore or tender breasts are a common PMS symptom due to fluctuating levels of hormones such as oestrogen and progesterone. Incorporate foods that contain vitamin B6 into your daily diet: good sources include beans, whole grains, oily fish, bananas and chicken. 

3. RELAXATION & IRON: stress can contribute to heavy bleeding, so try some relaxation techniques such as meditation, Pilates or yoga. Heavier periods also may be causing Iron deficiency, so consider iron or folic acid supplements and eat foods such as liver, beef, wholemeal bread, cereals, eggs, and dried fruit. 

4. LIMIT SALT INTAKE & EAT YOUR FIBRE: fluctuation in hormone levels can lead to water retention. Reduce bloating by cutting down on your salt and sodium intake, drinking plenty of water (if you’re dehydrated your body will hold onto water causing bloating), and eat foods high in fibre such as cereals, seeds, nuts, and beans to help your digestive system process food more effectively. 

5. CUT DOWN ON DAIRY: skin breakouts can be caused when your body increases progesterone hormones, which are also found in dairy products. Don’t forget to get calcium from other sources, such as almonds, brazil nuts, hazelnuts, broccoli, curly kale, okra, spinach and watercress.

6. PREVENT HEADACHES: menstrual migraines are linked to a drop in oestrogen levels. Eating foods such as soya, kidney beans, chickpeas, linseeds and lentils may help. Also try a hot or cold towel on the forehead to sooth headaches.
