There are drug-free ways in which you can make life during your premenstrual phase much easier for yourself and for those around you. Research has shown that over 50% of women with PMS have low levels of magnesium and that other nutrients like zinc, essential fatty acids and B vitamins are often in short supply.

Take action: Eat fish at least twice during this time; keep your dairy consumption as low as possible; make sure you eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables every day; avoid eating large amounts of refined sugar; stick to wholewheat alternatives; keep salt intake to a minimum; never skip meals.
