Hello All Again,
Just a note on this subject. My wife Carla is doing well. she still has her ups an downs from time to time. But much better than she used to . We have been sticking to the diet as the Transtions publication directs and with the progesteron therapy it seems to be working better than it used to.
If you follow this link it will take you to the website that explains much of this in more detail. There is no real cure more than better nutrition on this issue of PMDD. There are a lot of helps in the medical that help you to understand what happens but there is no doc I have spoken with that will tell me there is a cure because there is none. So we are still continuing in the nutrition to help with the symptoms. There are no easy answers to this thing that is for sure. My wife takes multipac of Mature Female vitamins which consists of 3 caps and 7 tabs we get from the Vitamin Shop online, 400 mg -SAMe, 200mcg Chromium Piclinate, 800mcg Folic Acid. Outside of that during the time of her mensus we stick to real basic whole foods with lots of nuts and beans, rice ect. In the mornings there is the power shake to get you going. :) Which consists of 1 c Orange juce 1 banana, 6 large frozen strawberries and several slices of frozen peaches orother fuits to taste. With 2 scoops of soy protien, The soy is important. All in a blender makes a nice drink.
It seems to make things better for her and thats whats important to me.
I hope this helps , Cal
